Minor changes, ok. Striping and piping and whatnot. But a total overhaul would be out of left field and really unnecessary.
This is an excellent point. When you see NHL logo/uniform rankings, the O6 teams are almost always at the top. Why? In my opinion, it has more to do with how they have remained relatively unchanged over time rather than the designs themselves. The appeal lies in how classic the designs are and the heritage that comes along with them. I could certainly see a scenario where the Hurricanes logos/uniforms are more highly-regarded 10 years from now if left unchanged.
