The New York Islanders should bring back the Gorton's Fisherman uniforms from the mid 1990's.

I can't disagree with any of those five.

No 3rd jersey for the Wings, why mess with perfection?

I hate the Red Wings, but they do have some pretty awesome uniforms.

No. No they shouldn't. Besides, the current black alternates fulfill the godawful quota. I think they've only worn them once so far this year. Hopefully that trend continues.

I do like all of the ones in TFA though.

Subby seems really really fascinated by the fashion aspect of the game. I wonder why?

Hint: real men don't give a flying f*ck about the jerseys, fruitcake.

The Blue Jackets' third jersey is my second favorite sweater in the league right now.

And I still really love this one:

F*ck off, bigot.

Anyway, I like that the Oilers have essentially gone back to the blue & orange jerseys. They stand out better than the copper & navy ones.

This is the best 3rd jersey ever. Well, maybe if "best" is defined as, "most hideous," but still, I've got a soft spot for this train wreck of a 3rd jersey.

Pretty much, if it looks like it came from the 1950's, you're halfway there.

They're wrong about Columbus. The whole franchise hates that jersey and the penis cannon mascot and they are burning it off because by rule you have to wear a jersey for so long.

Also Reebok/CCM/the NHL are incredibly stupid not to bring back all the 90s third jerseys as part of the retro line. Go ahead, look on eBay and see what the Wild Wing/Burger King/Gorton's Man jerseys go for. They hate money if they don't re-release these.

I keep hoping the Avs will come to their senses and adopt the fake throwback sweater with the colors of the Colorado state flag - red, yellow and blue.  The maroon has never made any sense whatsoever.  Plus, red and yellow equals orange, so the Avs will make sense sharing a state with the Broncos in their blue and orange.
 
2013-02-17 04:15:52 AM  
i like the alternate for the rangers. granted it's essentially a recolor of their home jersey but it's pretty snappy looking. very sleek. understated yet bold.

The author should be a fan of the Queen of England's monochrome approach. It's a shame that the author is so bereft of ideas that a critique of jerseys amounts to journalism.

The primary look for Columbus was also originally a third jersey that they started wearing full-time. It was a definite improvement over the CBJ logo. But the cannon jersey looks like a dull copycat of every other winter-classic type jersey that's been trotted out by the likes of the Wild, the Penguins, etc. I agree that they should consider revamping their look, but the current third isn't the answer. I think it might just be better if they made the pants navy instead of red. Would make a world of difference.

I miss the old Rockies sweaters. Granted, those belong to the Devils, and I have no idea why they don't wear those once every five years (or the Scouts). Or why Colorado doesn't bring out the Nordiques look on anniversaries. Or why almost any team doesn't do this with their retro look.

The writer wasn't high on the logo, either, nor should he be, as it is overdone. But the color scheme is pretty cool. It looks a lot more "old-timey" somehow, pays better tribute to their namesake. But just getting rid of most of the red in their current look would go a long ways to making them less garish.

Agreed, was very nice to see them make the decision to switch a couple years ago.  The fans seemed to drive that one.

They should ditch the copper and blue entirely and go all the way back to the WHA days for their 3rd jersey...same as the current one, but with the blue and orange reversed.
 
2013-02-17 08:06:05 AM  
I think the six best looking jerseys in the league are the Original Six jerseys. Maybe because there's just so much legacy? Or maybe because they're so simple. Except for the Habs' old striped jersey. THAT was hideous.

I liked the first Phoenix jersey as well but it was too "busy."
 
2013-02-17 08:06:09 AM  
I just with the NHL would wake up and switch back so the home uni 's are the white, and the road uni's are the colors. As it is every team that the home team will play looks basically the same in white. Not much variety for the spectators at any game - same home team in color, road team in white.

My town copied that pattern. I always thought it looked sharp. But it was the 90s and I was maybe 12.

I liked the New York Rangers Liberty jersey much better than the current alternate jersey.  I don't mind the current alternate, but it has very little variation from the regular jerseys and doesn't really stand out.  I'd prefer the late seventies style jerseys they wore in the early 2000s.

 I like the San Jose Sharks alternate as well.  For some reason, taking the shark out of the triangle and giving it a tail cleans up their logo.

I just think it looks too much like a practice uni, rather than a game sweater.

Of course, it could be much worse.

I like the color scheme on the Blue Jackets third jersey. If they could combo that with their current logo I think it could work really well. Either that or get rid of the red pants, that would be fine too. I really like their away jerseys though. I bought the home one because I can't be trusted not to stain a white jersey.

Yeah, the deal is, we need the red in there. The light blue signifies Infantry in our Civil War theme. But we fire off a CANNON when we score, fer Chrissakes, so we need to use the artillery red trim.
