The best part of this is seeing the arena lights reflecting a bit off the red part of the iron-on "V"!!

Every Canuck jersey has been damn hideous.

Why do you think they change them every year?

heres my top 5 list:
1. Anaheim's new logo and "asymmetric" stripes BLOW
2. Buffalo - DOWN with Rollerhockey/Motocross jerseys
3. Florida Panthers - color scheme is fine - the logo SUCKS. "rargh! here comes the 7th grade "perspective" drawing of a Panther. raawr! rawr! like my tiny legs in the back?" NO. you LOOK DUMB.
4. Flames - terrible. way too many stripes and colors and dumb directions of stripes. just stop playing with your computer already.
5. Kings - all their jerseys blow except the Gretzky/NWA years and the Marcel Dionne years.
#. Oilers - go back to the retro jerseys already for every night. use the same darker blue if you have to so the 'Men' are appeased. just get some identity out there with some color other than orange piping and some half-stripes on the arms. its pathetic design and gutless.

to be frank, there arent that many cool jerseys and logos in the NHL. sure, the classics stand the test of time but the rest are taken more as total iconic embodiments. kind of like the Metallica Logo and name. it sucks, but theyre still awesome and larger than life so you write off how stupid of a name "metallica" is and how dumb their logo is. same goes for "Slayer"

100% identifiable, unique and hilarious. sure, theyre kind of Flash Gordon but who cares. id rather have identity in the NHL than 900 "dark and menacing" jerseys that arent menacing at all. or did they pay some moron a paycheck to say those colors are "menacing" to the opponents? sure. whatever you want to believe.

its not like the Oilers logo is something amazing. Oil drop, some Cowboy font smeared down from the brain of the 70's. no ones whining about how caught in a time warp that is... cause its unique and iconic. teams just like to change crap up for merchandising and suckers to spend money instead of making a timeless logo that stands up. take the packers. crappy G, yellow and green.

i love every retro jersey people post.
that Kings one with the King head should be lit on fire.

im not sure how the Nords, Rockies and Kings ones are disgusting though. theyre more disgusting than the Thrashers, current Kings or Avalanche? why? cause the new ones have more elaborate "space age" logos that are overly detailed and overly specific?

maybe its because i grew up with those jerseys and got into hockey when they were around that they have no stigma to me but id say 99% of the new jerseys are way worse than any retro jersey.

I think the Canucks should have gone back to the bure era, black and gold ones.

My opinion in not liking them isn't because they're old (I love the nordiques jersey). I even think some newer "space age" logo are just as bad. Here's an example that the artist was really spaced out:

It's not that they're ugly....just BORING...plain white can't be described as "ugly".

Looks like one of Homer Simpson's hallucinations. ("Find your soulmate, Homer!")




THIS California Seals jersey blew chunks, much like the team.



I couldn't take the Devils unis seriously until they switched from green to black to accompany the red.

Dallas, worst third jersey, hands down. Patrik Stefan should have another reason to be ashamed.

Being a Flames fan I have to go with these.......

Having said that, I find it hard to believe you guy's claiming our C is bad when your current ones look like practice sweaters.

I am looking forward to your thrid "retro" sweater.........

Edmonton's jersey's are pretty crap.
The old Flames jerseys that they wore well into the 90s with the stripes on the waist. The black Flames jerseys with the weird deformed horse.
Anaheim has terrible jerseys too.

I really thought Philly in their cooperalls was ugly. Fugly more like it. The Captain Highliner Islander logo rates in that category as well. As for today, I gotta say Vancouver's bites, and so does Minny's red and green. Just not colours that should be put together for a uniform.

The Canucks have never had a nice jersey - hence no tradition. Can't wait for them to relocate to Portland.

Nashville, Atlanta, Florida, Anaheim...take your pick. But then again, non of these cities have any business have an NHL team.

St. Louis and Boston. You figure after being in the league for so many years that someone in their organizations would be able to come up with something respectable to wear.
