Welcome to the "Re-Imagining The NHL" project created by Cole Jones. Cole has been great enough to allow Days of Y'Orr to post his idea on different teams with his spin on them. You can follow Cole on Twitter
. Please feel free to comment on the team below. Feel free to read the official announcement of the project here
Finally, the team you've all been asking for. Ever since the project started, I got a lot of requests for the Bruins. Well, here they are! If you haven't checked out our other teams, visit the Re-Imagining the NHL team page
. The team page will be updated daily with every team we update. So before we take a look at the uniforms, lets take a look at Cole's comments on the Jets.Cole's comments:
What I didn't like about the real ones, I tried to fix with my version. I'm one of the few that thinks the new Jets logo is simple yet good. It's not amazing, but I like it, so I kept it.

As far the secondary logo goes, I cut most of it out and just went with the wings and a maple leaf, which I think is simple and dignified enough to stand on it's own.
The alternate is a design of my own that was inspired by the original WHA Jets uniforms, with a few liberties taken.
