From a design sense, that jersey is very traditional. The word traditional applies to more than just hockey jerseys and if you actually understood the word, you'd know this.
Excellent point, IMO.

I love the "original six" sweaters, simply because of the history they represent---their longevity screams "NHL"!!

But I would imagine all would be considered bland if unveiled now, with the exception of the Blackhawk's, and possibly the Canadien's.
