Good and Bad Jerseys in the Q

OK, IMO here's how they rank from best to worst (not including third jerseys):

Halifax (Classy - white is best.)
Rimouski (Great colours and great logo.)
Drummondville (Great Jr. look.)
Val-d'Or (I wouldn't change a thing.)
Québec (Classic, says tradition.)
Shawinigan (Great Jr. look)
Rouyn-Noranda (What exactly is that suppose to be behing the Husky?)
Victoriaville (Take that hockey stick out of the Tiger's mouth already!)
Gatineau (Move this team to Fredericton, already!)
St. John's (Just the Devil logo would really rock. Great colours.)
Lewiston (Dark is best.)
P.E.I. (Colours are good but logo is a little cartoonish IMO.)
Cape Breton (Colours are good but there are too many words.....they just look too busy.)
Saint John (Lose the wording on the bottom.)
Chicoutimi (They look like Ringette sweaters.)
Bathurst (Bad logo and just plain Ugly! Lose the wording & the shield. The helmet & horns would rock.)
Baie-Comeau (See Bathurst ...... Ugly! No help for their logo, though)
Moncton (Logo is really, really bad with that cat coming through the jersey like that - and is that colour suppose to be orange or red? I like the claw marks at the bottom though. Moncton also has the worst (meaning the most feminine) mascot in the league. Really....it's sad.)

The Awesome:

Chicoutimi. Best in the CHL. And it's not even close.


The Good (in no particular order):
Rimouski, Cape Breton, Saint John, Baie-Comeau, Quebec, Val d'Or, Moncton.


The average:
PEI, St John's, Shawinigan, Drummondville, Halifax (would be good if they would even out the diagonal stripe - sooooo mid 1990's).


The boring, but not necessarily bad:
Lewiston, Rouyn-Noranda, Victoriaville (I love Victo's new thirds though).


The bad:
Bathurst, Gatineau. Bathurst because their new uniforms are a gigantic step down from their average old uniforms, Gatineau because their colours are just God-awful - I mean, purple and orange? Who above the age of 6 thinks that looks good?)

Because it's unique, filled with history and character, and classy as a vintage Rolls-Royce.

I absolutely love the Chicoutimi jerseys, and also think they're among the best in the CHL. Great colours, very original design.
I suppose I can see how some would not like it, but I'm lovin' them.
Mind you, I also love the rugby-style Ottawa 67's jerseys (the old-time ones, NOT the ones that have the ******* puck with a snarl logo).

I also think Shawinigan has very classy unis, great logo.

You know what would be nice? If you two actually posted your own list for us to read instead of trying to make fun of my flawless, unbeatable list.

That would be nice.

Ok then,

Rimouski (I'm a homer)
Lewiston (like the colors, especially the grey one)
Quebec (really classy shirt)
PEI (Good design, I like it)
St John's (the devil rock)
Drumondville (like their new one)
Shawinigan (their new one is great too)
Saint John (The mix of color is great, but not the logo)
Rouyn-Noranda (Nothing Special, he's just normal.)
Gatineau (I never liked any of their shirt)
Victoriaville (Their old shirts were ugly, the new one too)
Cape Breton (Nothing special, just dont like it)
Moncton (Logo is bad, the colours too)
Baie Comeau (Youwanted to know why the Centre Henry Leonard is never full ? Here's the reason why.)
Acadie-Bathurst (Logo is ugly, just as the colors)
Chicoutimi (God I hate that logo)
Halifax (Alway hated that shirt, even when it was not vintage)
Val D'Or (Awful)

The Moncton and PEI third jerseys are awesome. IMO they should both adopt them as their main ones.

I think that Q as a league has some of the nicer logos/jerseys that are out there as compared to other leagues. IMO opinion there really isn't any logos/jerseys that you can say is just plain awful.

Top 5 that I like in no particular order:

Rimouski - nice design, nice logo...really catches the eye
Moncton - always liked their jerseys, especially the red ones
Bathurst - the original one, not the new one that is coming out
Drummondville - nice looking jersey
Rouyn-Noranda - like the logo

Bottom ones in no particular order:

Quebec - even if it is a classic style have never been a fan of the logo and colors
Chicoutimi - not a fan of the logo and dislike the shoulder stripes even more
Baie Comeau - not a fan of the logo
Bathurst - the new ones, hate the colors

For the record, my "10 best in the CHL" list looks like this, in order:

Chicoutimi
Regina (the classic one with the PPCLI crest on the shoulder)
Sudbury
London
Toronto St. Michael's
Ottawa (barber poles only)
Kamloops (not their current visual armageddon, the glory-era ones they wore up until two years ago)
Belleville (black only, the yellow ones are a bit too much)
Quebec
Medicine Hat

I would have Sault Ste. Marie up there but their current look is just a little off to me, I hate the V-stripe and it has too much black and grey in it. If they went back to their classic red and white look with maybe a little silver trim I would have them as high as the top 3.

Rimouski would be my number 11.

For sure of the 3 CHL Leagues the Q has the best Uniforms overall. My comments on each with overall ranking:

Baie-Comeau (16) - Why have the same Jerseys Calgary did? Do something different. Scores a "0" for originality.
Acadie-Bathurst (18) - New jerseys look horrible. Sad because the logo is a classic. Hands down the worst in the league.
Chicoutimi (1) - As far as I'm concerned one of the best jerseys in hockey. Classic and still different.
Cape Breton (12) - Great Colors, but the logo is to busy.
Drummondville (2) - Great new Logo and Colors. Put together nicely. Easily in the top 3.
Halifax (4) - As stated earlier here, a classic. I can see the logo being reworked in the next few years because its been around awhile though.
Gatineau (10) - I don't see why you guys hate this one. Black, Purple, and Red look good together and the Logo is nice. I'd say middle of the pack on this one.
Lewiston (6) - Pretty original, I actually applaude the chance they took on the Gray Third, and I may be one of the few that like it.
Québec (5) - A vintage Look. Love the cream color instead of white. Just a nice jersey. To bad the away looks abit like the Minnesota Wild...maybe if black was the main color.
Moncton (17) - Horrible, Home, Away, and 3rd. Kids cartoon logo. So easy to throw the red, white, and blue out there. I liked the Alpines unis much better!
Rimouski (3) - Beautiful
P.E.I. (8) - Alittle boring, but as a package it's nice.
Rouyn-Noranda - I like the new logo, but the jersey itself is way to busy
Shawinigan (7) - Great Colors, still I'm surprised that logo has lasted this long.
Saint John (11) - That logo is growing on me, still the colors are to close to Lewiston.
St. John's (13) - Red, White, and Black...hmm original...not.
Val-d'Or (12)- To bad this one gets a bad wrap...colors are original...somethings missing though.
Victoriaville (9) - Once again, an NHL rip-off, but the new 3rd is sweet...

Well, at least none of the Q jerseys come even remotely close to the hideous uniforms worn in the OHL by the Brampton Battalion.

Chicoutimi is my faveroite in the Q as well, i never liked Brampton's jersey, the logo is alright but they should go with a Black and White instead of yellow/green for their dark jersies, i think they would look alot more presentable, Sarnia is my hometown team, and i like the jersies they had last year but it looks like they're coming out with a new 3rd jersey, and potentially an alternate logo, i really wish they wouldn't change their jersies/logos' every season, London, and Sarnia's are my faveroite in the O, but i think the Q really does the best job with their's

LOL, I love those for some reason...

Regarding Q jerseys: I also love Chicoutimi's jerseys, as well as Rimouski's. However, other than those two, my next favorite is Victoriaville's uber-sweet vintage 3rd jersey they'll have this year.
