Favorite Non-Wild Jerseys

Let's get this straight; nothing will ever top my Wild jersey. Thanks to HFboards, I've been extremely tempted to buy some new hockey gear. In fact, I've started moderately following teams solely because I love their jerseys.
  • Specifically:

  • Carolina Hurricanes 3rd Jersey - In my opinion, this is the best logo in hockey. Putting gray boxes around the waste really draws the eye and makes this jersey unique. Plus, can you ever go wrong with black and red?

  • Nashville Predators 3rd Jersey - This jersey has an extremely classy color scheme. The checkered pattern around the waist and arms accentuated by the contrasting colors makes this one of my favorite jerseys.

I'm curious about everyone's favorite non-Wild jerseys/which non-Wild jerseys have you always wanted? (NHL, International, AHL, Collegiate, etc.) What is it that you like about these other jerseys?

Tre Kronor I just love the look of this jersey, probably my favorite color scheme on a jersey.



IDK why, but I've always loved this jersey.

Red Wings home and away. Habs home and away. Call me old-school. Oh, I also really like the Bolts' new jerseys, but that's pretty much just a blue Detroit jersey anyway.

Also, I have a Suomi jersey, because it's awesome. Great colors, and the lion with swords is a total BAMF.

Does the old North Stars jersey count as non-Wild? Because that's still probably my favorite jersey the league's ever had.

I'd say yes. Some websites even categorize North Stars jerseys under Dallas Stars apparel. BLASPHEMY!

My favorite non-Wild jerseys would be the old North Stars jerseys, The old Hartford Whalers jerseys, the teal and black San Jose Sharks jerseys, Buffalos old black red and silver "angry Buffalo" jerseys, and the old Pittsburgh Penguins jerseys with the angular emperor penguin logo for the white home jerseys and the black away jerseys with the "Pittsburgh" text diagonally across the front. Those were classy.

Totally forgot about this jersey. I hope Buffalo revisits this logo, it's one of my favorites.

The Blackhawks' jerseys from the WC a few years ago was amazing.

It's too bad the hawks used this as I believe a Wild third using that same style with the wheat as the primary color would look great.

Awesome choice. Savard was one of my favorite players.

I dig the newer Buffalo Sabre jerseys with the old logo. Glad they got rid of the BuffaSlug.



Also, I like a lot of the Olympic jerseys. Canada and USA always comes out with a nice one, but I really like the Sweden and Finland jerseys too.

I couldn't stand the 2006 jerseys with the weird boxes on them. LOVED the 1960 throwback USA jersey though, good call!

I could see replacing the black with dark green, while having the red and wheat stripes serve as accents. Also, I'd really like to see the next wild home jersey use the logo from our current away jerseys. The circle logo is getting really over-used.

Nice, always loved Savard. This is a really cool 3rd jersey - actually, a lot of teams do a really good job with their 3rds.

Ya, its not the prettiest jersey & the original Islanders jersey is far better but I got a special place for this one. The North Stars were about to leave Minnesota & we just got a house in Queens, NY... I was only 11 years old & all sad about the N'stars leaving (my all time favorite team)& my moms friend Tino wanted to cheer us up so he got me & my best friend these Islanders jerseys & then got us great seats right off the glass at the Coliseum for a Isles / Ranger's game. To this day it was one of the most fun hockey game experiences of my life! ROWDY & intense all the way thru & the Isles won 4 to 0!

Then after the game he took us to see the Amityville murder house & then to the Mansion Mcdonalds in New Hyde Park, NY. All around fantastic & memorable night & that jersey always reminds me of it! (I still have the jersey. haha)

But back on topic, I still say that the Islanders classic jersey is one of the all time best! Simple, understated & original.. I love it! So the throwbacks are some of my current favorites in the leage!




NORTH STARS will forever be my favorite jersey tho...


Honorable Mention:

Chicago Blackhawks HOME
Harftford Whalers AWAY (would be home currently)
Edmonton Oilers throwback
Flyers Orange throwback
Oh & the Old St. Paul Fighting Saints jersey is sa-weet too!

Casey Wellman's call-up image on NHL.com shows a really nice Houston Aeros away jersey. I think a white version (or golden-wheat color) of the Wild's current 3rd jersey would look really sharp. I really hope the Wild go in this direction with their away jerseys next year.

I'm a huge fan of the Gophers' third this year
