Kings to Wear Vintage Jerseys this Year
 
Quote:

Joining the Canucks, the Los Angeles Kings will sport vintage attire on a handful of occasions, including opening night when they face Vancouver.

While the Kings have yet to officially confirm this, they did give a retro jersey to their top pick at the NHL Entry Draft, which they hosted in June.

That jersey featured this logo, which made its debut in 1967 and was in use until 1988. It hadn't been used in any official capacity until June.

Great news!! Hopefully we don't have to see those pathetic silver/black home plate jerseys again.

Great, more Laker colors please

I like the silver/black jersey.

Don't know where the new 3rd jersey hate is coming from. I love it...thought most fans did too.

hmmm, I don't know where the 3rd jersey love is coming from. I hate it...thought most fans did too.

Seriously,... I do hate it. I mean it's an embarassingly simpleton design that any 5th grader that knows anything about baseball could have done.

Has there been a HF Kings poll re 3rd jersey design?

From what most Kings fans post here, I would guess it's about 50/50 love/hate. I would also guess that if you look at fans over 25, it goes to about 90% hate it. (yes, I am over 25 yrs old :laugh: )

I cant stand it.

In addition, the Ducks are adding a new logo (left), also by looking to their past. The new mark will be worn as a shoulder patch on the alternate sweater and includes a recolored version of the original Mighty Ducks logo.
Now we can resume making fun of Anaheim over the whole Disney thing. :laugh:

Come on, everybody doesn't love the idea of the old yellow pants, yellow jersey's and yellow stockings with purple pipping? Marcel and Rogie rocked them pretty hard to name but two. Daryl must be loving it and don't forget Jimmy.

Just be happy that we didn't go with the "cooperall" experiment.

yuk.

The home plate design came from http://www.hockeyforum.com/photopost...O_2_edited.jpg

I am not a fan of the silver and black. I know the story behind the colors when 99 joined the team. I know that lots of fans like the Raiders colors. I just think that too many teams are using black. The Kings should have purple in their jersey not only because purple is the color of royality, but it connects with the history of the team. I haven't bought the home plate jersey yet. I might buy one just to have one, but I don't have the Burger King jersey either so it is not like it is the only one missing from my collection.

I do have a Chevy logo one, I wasn't a fan of that one either, but my brother gave it to me as a birthday gift in 93 right after/around the all star break.

kingsholygrail 09-27-2010 06:52 PM

The 3rd jerseys grew on me enough to get one.

I don't think I'd wear yellow.

etherialone 09-27-2010 06:53 PM

"Mighty"


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

One of the funniest moments in my hockey time line, the first time I heard that the anaheim franchise was going to use the word "mighty" in their actual team name. I never laughed so hard, well, with the exception of the Senators "toga party on ice capades" arena/game/team home opener.

That was one of the worst moments in NHL history, until the *mighty* thing that is.

johnjm22 09-27-2010 06:57 PM

I'm assuming it's going to be this jersey:

Which is the 80-88 era uniforms.

I could be this one, because it is for the 'Nucks 40th year

Or the reverse of colors

30 in a couple weeks and I love the current 3rds, although they get a huge bump due to the sporting of the silver/black era socks and helmet decals.

They are clean, I like the fonts and the colors are great. Doesn't mean I don't like the Forum Blue jerseys as I love those as well but the 3rds are sweet.

They are actually one of the favorite 3rd jerseys per fan opinion around the league.

THEKingsFanInRI 09-27-2010 07:18 PM

I love the Forum Blue and Gold, not a fan of the Gretzky-era jerseys or the current 3rd's.

I don't care if they wear silk socks and pink satin hockey pants, I just wish the season would hurry up and start.

The throwback uniforms that Vancouver will be wearing this season are white, so more than likely, the Kings will be donning purple sweaters.

These are the uniforms both teams will be wearing on opening night:

Those are the uniforms the Kings should be wearing, but Kings' brass don't waste our time if you aren't going to invest in the purple pants and helmets that go with that uniform.

Exactly! It was embarassing a few years ago.

On a side note what happened to Ziggy's pics? I can't see them.
