With the Colorado Avalanche fresh off their big win, I started thinking about their first Stanley Cup back in 1996. It also happened to be the first season after the franchise relocated from Quebec. Had they been about to stick around one more year, the Nordiques might have been raising a banner. And maybe they never would’ve left.
In that alternate timeline, Dylan Tusinski imagines the Quebec Nordiques wearing a Reverse Retro jersey next season that calls back to the year they won their first Stanley Cup. I like this one!
