In my opinion, our jerseys are probably bottom 5 but not last. Dallas has to be last, not us. Our logo has to stay because it is ****ing awesome. The colour scheme is awesome too but the jersey design is horrible. The jerseys would be A LOT better if there was no piping but it still wouldn't be as good as our old jerseys. The article said our old jerseys were passable but I disagree with that, I believe they were one of the best jerseys back in the day. I love both of our 3rd jerseys (I own both) but the Burgundy one was better than the Blue one. I still believe though, that the Blueberries are very underrated and are one of my favourite jerseys in the league.
I think the majority of us will agree that this 3rd jersey was the best and that they should bring it back . I wonder if there's a way to let the team know about our preference and if they will actually listend, one thing is sure someone should tell them .
Just because it's the majority opinion here doesn't mean it's the majority everywhere. I love both but I prefer the Blue.

I wouldn't go that far. It's awful when a team just takes its current jersey design and makes it black. If they do something creative with its ok.
I have to say I agree with you. Okay, the logo isn't great but the jerseys IMO are nice.
Yeah, despite it maybe looking like a jersey from a different sport, there's not really any other NHL jersey's that look like it. It's simple... the old Kings jerseys were all black white and silver, and no one complained about them really... that was even with the Chevy logo, which IMO isn't much better than the current one. I feel like the jerseys fit LA. Watching the whole team skating in the all-blacks looks slick. If that style became a trend I'd complain too, but give me LAs jersey over Anaheim, Dallas, Ottawa...
On topic of the best jerseys, as much as I hate to admit it, Vancouver has it on lock-down. The blue-green just wins me over, despite the diving, whiny punk that might be wearing it.
Everyone saying they should go back to the originals are ignoring the fact that they can't. The Reebok template will not allow the mountain stripes. Dallas, Calgary, and the Avs were told they HAD to change the jerseys. The concept that was put up earlier are as close to the originals as we could get with the edge design. They are infinitely better than the ridiculous unipron's that we have now. I am sure, given a choice the Avs would have never changed their jerseys in the first place.
That is what they should have went to from the get go with Reebok.
