New "Black Ice" Jersey



I can hear Bob Miller complaining already.

Was the thinking that there was too much color before?

And yes.. it's very real: http://shop.nhl.com/product/index.js...y_bestsell_txt

That seems like appropriate attire for attending a hockey funeral.

It would be fitting for them to come out to this song:

I've seen jerseys like that for a lot of the teams. Is it just a vanity one, or will the Kings actually be wearing it? My gut tells me they won't be wearing it.

It's for fashion. Much like those pink sweaters. Although at times I do think that pink is a fitting color for many players on the Kings roster.

Are they actually going to wear these during a game?

While I don't think they are very good, they wouldn't be half bad with a different logo. The home plate just looks awful there. If it contained a blacked-out version of the crown, they might be on to something.

Now they just need to find a rapper to wear those jerseys in a music video. How about this guy?

All teams have these kind of jerseys. It's not just the Kings. It's very meh to me. I'm glad the team won't wear them.

The back actually looks kinda cool....for a vanity jersey. The front just looks empty. I would never want to see the team wearing it on the ice.

Saw them at the kiosks at Staples between periods last Saturday. Had to LOL at the cash-grab aspect of them. Well, really I just LOL'd at them on general principle.

It doesn't look any better or worse than our current jerseys.

It does look worse and that takes some skill to do.

The aesthetic decisions they've made with Kings jerseys in recents years--decades, really--have been terrible. Can they not see that the old Forum blue and yellow ones look awesome? That the old-style crown looks classy? That a team with an identity needs a COLOR? Whoever is in charge of these decisions should be fired immediately.

I believe that would be Chris McGowan, who was promoted to COO of the LA Kings and AEG Sports.
