Down The AH Kowaah....

Over 50 fan here, and Kings fan since before the dang ganster Traitors were in La La Land... I never loved the Silver and Black and their gangsta fans. When the dratted traitors were in LA I went to one game cause my X-GF's cousin was shacked up with the Jets Coach and we got tickets to the playoff game and I definately rooted for the Jets!

Loved the Lucky and Gretz years but not the uniforms... and the run we made was magical but would have been better in the traditional uni's. Don't like the 3rd's we have now. Does the home plate have some meaning to being royal or kingly? I bet not!!!! Its lame or riffic Dude. In todays slang... But such is the mentallity of todays USA gangsta's rule! woo whoo!

Would love to see some Gold and Forum Blue or Golden Rod & Royal Purple. To me its not the stupid snakers colors but our teams historical uniforms. Just the facts folks simple...

I like the the black and silver jersey, I just think the logo is pathetic. I would keep the colors but lose/replace the logo.

Here's a modified version of our 3rd jersey with the old school crown.

Last years third jersey is the nicest in the league aside from the Chicago original 6 uni. There's a reason why the players voted to wear them as their main road jersey in the playoffs last year. They aren't going anywhere, and I'm glad!

Why couldn't they just do this. Those look freakin awesome. I love the thirds but again, and again, lose that pathetic homeplate crest/logo. Who the hell approved of that logo!?!?

My ideal jersey situation:

Swap purple and black on our currents
80-88 darks as the 3rds

I still don't like the current 3rds, although I ackowledge that they look good on the ice.

At the end of the day I couldn't care less if they have the best or worst sweaters in the league but that home plate logo is just dreadful. The black and white or silver color scheme will always look great. You people can't seriously like the logo though can you?

I'm liking that, but I still like the Purple away jerseys of the 80's.
They aren't Laker colors either. Its called "Forum Blue and Gold"

With you all the way. Less black and white and more forum blue and gold.

Mignifique, the implyed sash is reminicsent of the famous colors worn by the dignified royal guard of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher. The playful colors reminding the eye of a more youthful time. Simply breathtaking.

Are you kidding me?? Have you never heard just about every non-Kings fan and tv analyst say something to the effect of "remember those god awful yellow and purple uniforms the Kings used to wear? Those were one of the ugliest jerseys of all time". Ya that's right, everybody that's not a Kings fan from the 70's thinks they're horrible. No way they go back to those full time.

I agree with you on the gold or yellow jerseys, but the forum blue is classic and should be worn at home. I have no problem with the Kings wearing white on the road. I would like to see the existing crown trimmed in gold instead of silver and put on the forum blue jersey. I'm not a huge fan of the Imperial Margarine crown, but I would live with it if it means getting back to the forum blue jerseys.

Black and white uniforms...how original.

I like the new 3rd jerseys and the old 70's style purple and gold. I actually am not much of a fan of the current jersey with the black, silver and purple. I guess I don't like the crown the most. I think it should be the more rounded crown that some of guys here have been using for their drawings.

I'd be willing to bet that the vast majority of the people that like the silver and black colors and the current 3rd jersey are probably a younger demographic than the ones that don't. For that reason and the fact the players seem to like them, I expect them to continue with them. Businesses like to cater to youth and what is cool. Most of the people i go to games with are 30 or younger and the ones closer the 20 all seem to like them. I think they are kinda nostalgic to them because it goes back to the Gretzky era.
