The sweaters and uniforms of the past have a conceptual relationship with histories of franchises and even buildings of the past. With the proliferation and necessity of modernized facilities, the downfall is the antiseptic nature associated with the cleanliness of the newer buildings. A non-NHL example for uniforms is in football where the Buccaneers' original jersey is favored by some but the imagery of bad teams is included, unintended or not. The Canucks' stick jersey is simple and maybe uninspiring but that simplicity is what I think makes it appealing.
