O6 teams have just had more time to figure out what looks good and develop a following, I imagine that has to do with their relative popularity today.

Agree CHI is way too low, but their jerseys haven't always been the masterpieces they are today:

Yeah me too, just because they're original six doesn't make their uniform one of the best. They're overrated.

Thats so random that CBJ is so high, one of the worst and least memorable jerseys in the league IMO.

Why are you trying to compare Edm to a original 6 team, the most successful franchise in NHL history and one of the most storied franchises in sports? I honestly don't understand Edm fans. You feel the need to defend yourselves so strongly it's baffling.

Pittsburgh and Ottawa have the exact same jersey essentially. How is one 99th, and the other 26th? Not that either should be ranked highly.

The Kings are right about where I expected them to be. I'll always love the current jersey because we won our first Cup in it, but they are just awful.

Probably because the Oilers have very very nice jerseys...

I hate their road jerseys. I don't understand why the collar doesn't wrap all the way around. Instead they just have a 180 degree line right in the center. Besides that, which really pisses me off (), they're really nice.

The Blackhawks name/logo is considered racist? Are you sure you're not mixing that up with the Fighting Sioux?

Good list, but to be honest no american throwball team should be in the top 10. All they're uniforms consist of huge ass numbers, and shoulder stripes, nothing visually bewilderment.

Fighting Sioux is not even racist as well, just the pretty boys of the NCAA at their evil secret volcano lair just needs something to show how much power they have.

I believe it had nothing to do with the NCAA; UND got sued and lost in court.

Edit - You're right.

If that's the case then you gotta love the American Judicial System.

Leafs, Oilers, Flyers, Bruins, and Hawks (not in order) is the top 5 IMO. CBJ is awful, Minnesota is awful (exception alternates), and MTL and Detroit are a bit overrated.

Chicago should be at least top 5. It's ESPN, they don't care about hockey so don't read much into all of this.

May have been said, but this is from August and we already had a lengthy thread on it.

May have been said, but the guy who did the rankings is Paul Lukas of the Uni Watch Blog. He has a severe dislike of the use of Indian logos, which is why the Hawks are so low.

Did you even read the comments? The Habs logo is classic. You can't tell when it was created. While the Oilers hideous logo could only be a product of the 70's.

And the Senators have a superior colour scheme. Well, except for the nasty cream colour on the third.

But any list that doesn't have the Blackhawks #1 is clearly done by someone who is visually impaired.

The Oilers have a classic logo - every bit as classic as the Canadiens. It is iconic and will be around forever.

People really don't understand the history, tradition and success of the Oilers franchise.

Their logo is iconic. The club has won MORE Stanley Cups than any other team since they joined the NHL in 1979. They have won MORE Stanley Cups than all other Canadian teams combined since they joined the NHL in 1979.

They had the greatest player in the history of the game at his peak. They featured 6 HOFers on a team that won 5 Stanley Cups in 7 years. They won their first cup in their 5th year of existence.

The Oilers are the most successful, and storied franchise since they joined the NHL. When you factor in cups/seasons/cup winning difficulty, they are the most successful franchise in NHL history. Their logo is iconic. They are one of the NHL's flagship franchises.

People tend to get so wrapped up in what has happened in the past three years that they forget the true reality.
