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 can't say the Avs jerseys are very good, but dear god are the kings jersey's terrible. They have the worst logo in the league AINEC.

don't understand the hate for the kings' jerseys. I think they look sleek.

The logo is weird and their jersey is really boring.

The logo.

Like, what the **** is this even? It's horrible.



It's home plate with an LA and the kings logo on it.

The font is also retarded. It doesn't even look like an A. It's an L followed by the side view of an end table.



Just what the **** is happening here?

Also way, way, way too much black.

They fixed something that wasn't broke... and broke it. Pride won't allow them to undo it. Our originals were fantastic.

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.

I think the fact that we can't tell what it is should tell you all you need to know about it's quality.

The Kings logo is pretty stupid, but their jersey with it is pretty sweet. I also don't understand why Minnesota's logo gets bashed. It's one of the most unique logos I've ever seen.

I'd take the Kings current logo over ANY of the canucks logo/jerseys they've EVER had. ALWAYS HIDEOUS!

I see the shield, too. Like a family crest, or a knight's shield. The font and design are like Medieval Times. Ye olde schoole knights, King Arthur and all that.

Honestly, I love the kings new look & have pondered getting a jersey of theirs.

LOL yes every cansucks (see what I did here) logo have always been terrible.

But I do admit I love their current logo with the blue and silver. The green makes it garbage.

I love the looks of it but I'd never buy it because since it is not worn the ice, it just doesn't feel "official" to me, feels more like a player t-shirt.
