I wanted to add "bruised, tarnished, yet bright colors". Sort of like the Boivin years. The legacy was tarnished because of the losing but it looked bright and shinny like a new brand of product that's the new hot thing.
I never had Nords colors and never will. Some fans need to get over themselves.
Interesting but I don't like it, the artsy degradation of the logo looks more like a post-rock band's emo thing, Jackson Pollock's floor, menstrual discharge in a tidy bowl commode, etc. Sports teams want an icon communicating bold, strong, proud.
I've never had the opportunity to see this in real life.
I guess it's one of those 'you had to be there' events.
