I love the Flyers' jerseys, but I wouldn't call them the best, top 3 in the current NHL for sure though.

I definitely feel that the Blackhawks are the tops in the league, jersey-wise.

The fact that the Miami Marlin are not the worst uniform in sports immediately makes me question the list. Boston Bruins are in the 60s? But the top ten list is hard to argue with.

about the boston bruins jerseys :

I find that a lot of people seem to think that all of the original 6 team jerseys should be top 6 in ranking because of 'nostalgia'

About the Bruins' jerseys, I like the simplicity of the Bruins' jerseys. For the most part, they have been the same. I like that. I think that is why I like the Original 6 jerseys; they seem to maintain a simplicity, as do the Flyers. I think the Devils have good uniforms as well for the same reason.

Agreed, the Blackhawks (IMO) have one of the best jersey's in all of sports...but it's still pretty cool that the Flyers got the #1 spot this year.

Love the WC and also the black but I think they should stay away from the black since it makes you look smaller. Players want to look bigger and white does that.

How the hell can the Chargers powder blue be ranked near the bottom? And I like 1960 Eagles uniform the best out of all the ones have here in Philadelphia. I like the Flyers and the ones the 76ers wear now about the same.

Nice.

Wish they would make a Black jersey of the current ones. I saw a picture of it before. That or the WC as a 3rd.

I love our jerseys but they aren't even my favorite in the NHL I'd take the Blackhawks and Blues over ours. Sue me.

I've been dying for them to go all black, with just orange stripes on the sleeves, orange number and names and omit the white completely. Sort of similar to the Bruins 3rd. Looks so good when i make it in EA's customization option.

I agree...black is waaaaaaaay too over done. Just let the Bruins and Pens have it. The more teams that have the same color, the less special it is.

There's not enough orange in the black jerseys, period.


As long as we never go back to this monstrosity:



Edit: These are still better than most of the jerseys out there, just what were they thinking with that silver lining on the logo? haha

Espn.com jumped on this bandwagon too, and had one of their guys do his own uni ranks.

Flyers didn't fare as well, but put up a good showing of 17th overall out of all 4 sports. But if I were to side with one rankings over the other it'd be the NFL.com one, and not just 'cuz the Flyers are tops there. This Espn guy went with some serious O6 bias (he had Montreal #1, which I don't hate) but he had arguably the best O6 uni in the Blackhawks way down at 49 or so.

Also he put the Phils ahead of the Flyers. I like the Phillies unis but ahead of the Flyers? Nah.

The 3d was a horrible idea. I would like to never see the black jerseys again. Flyers are orange, just like Eagles are Kelly green (which they need to go back to.)
