Triple Crown Era Uniforms

Hello Kings fans -

On the cusp of middle age, I have become gloriously nostalgic about retro uniforms. I see that the Kings used the Dionne-era unis in the draft. I think they're beautiful. Any idea how the team plans to use them? They've got so much character...

Thanks and good luck next year. You have a very impressive team....

If I am not mistaken. I am pretty sure we are just opening the season with them. And may also wear them a few Sunday games. But that's about all I was told at the Draft.

They're wearing them for a game against the Canucks (40th anniversary celebration for them), pus the possibility of a few other games.

I saw a guy wearing a purple Gene Carr jersey at the draft. The one with one gold stripe on the sleeve and at the bottom. It looked great. The Kings should be wearing those at home all the time.

There is only one team that should wear purple and gold on a full-time basis, and that is the Lakers. I don't mind the throwbacks every now and then, but that is an outright hideous color scheme.

I agree. Because the Lakers are the only team that cant be called Gay or Girly for wearing them. They`ll be like "yo hold up lemme count my championships and get back to you."

Couldn't disagree more. They would be unique and are truly representative of the team's name. BLACK SUCKS!!!

They used to look like skating bananas on the ice. I associate that old color scheme with failure.

I don't want the gold uniforms back. White is fine. The purple on the other hand, would be one of the most unique and cool looking uniforms in the league.

Every color scheme the Kings have worn can be associated with failure.

I agree with your disagree. I wish they were doing a whole year of purple and gold. Too many teams are mainly black.

A lot of us would like to see a combination of the current, and older jerseys.

Wha..? where's the burger king shoulder patch?....

and a design standard: just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should.


And the triple crown jerseys will look good ONLY if they use Purple pants and helmets as well (for the full effect they should use purple / gold gloves too).

They've done the purple jersey with black pants, and it doesn't look that good at all.

Switch the black based home for purple as the main colour, and you'd have me sold. The white looks really solid though.

I agree. The white looks great. Dump the color black altogether.

As far as this year's third jersey goes, if they don't wear the purple pants and helmets, then don't bother.

Hi folks. I'm a Canucks fan who comes in peace.

I tend to side with those of you who favour the old colours more. Perhaps it has something to do with purple and gold being the colours of my hockey organization growing up, but I do love them.

Not sure if linking to other sites is verboten but under June 23 on the Icethetics site, there's a rendering of a possible Kings throwback as speculated by Rich Hammond. I have to say that I'd buy one of those in a heartbeat if the Kings did go that route...simple and classic.

I love the old crown logo, it puts the new one to shame.

I hate it. Too many teams wear it and it's too generic.

You can say that about every jersey worn. I dislike the Raider look a like uni's. Get rid of it.
