I will be purchasing one of these once they go on sale. Thank God they matched the pants, gloves and helmet.

They heard my prayers. Also the matching decal on the helmet. Kopi's gloves look sick.

If you look closely at the picture of Quick, you'll notice he's wearing a new mask. From what I see, it is a Vachon tribute. You can see ears painted on the sides, the purple mask on the front, as well as the crown on the forehead.

I think you are right. Quick's mask might be in tribute to Vachon.

Gotta give a ton of credit to Quick for going all out. Quick's gonna be wearing leather-brown colored pads, with a mask designed to look like he's wearing Rogie's mask and all while wearing the old purple and gold jersey!

That's awesome!

Agree - I've always loved this jersey / logo combo. This is SOOOOooooooo much better than what they have now.

The only thing it could (maybe) use is an added shoulder patch of some sort.

I like the attempt the Kings made with the current jerseys of black, purple and silver, but there are so many things wrong with the overall design that I'm tired of listing them. The ONLY thing about the current scheme that is good and really doesn't need an upgrade is the crown logo.

I am really looking forward to seing them play in their retro purple / gold jerseys - in spite of the goofy collar accent (BOOOooooo!!!)

I the pix above (see post #95), the purple looks a bit dark, no? Maybe it's just the lighting... I hope so.

SOOO awesome. I'm so excited to see him decked out. He seems to have gone for the Vachon look head to toe.

Speaking of Quick's masks, what is his normal mask this year? I hope it's not the same design he's had the past few years, is it?

Bernier's pads look so awesome in gold and purple. I'm not normally into this color scheme, but the Kings are going to look great Saturday night!

Quick wore the knight's helmet mask in the Vegas game.

That's what I thought, but I was too high up to really see it. I wish he'd get something new each year. I love goalie equipment.

I don't know why I thought this was funny. I don't remember it exactly but that reminds me of that commercial where I think there is a girl waiting for her husband/bf in the bedroom and he comes in with a full set of goalie equipment on. I think he was wearing Flyers gear. Anyone remember that?

Muchos Gracias Senor Ziggy!!

Great to see Quick going all out in his retro look, hopefully Lu goes as far. I certainly won't erase this one off the PVR, until I get it burned. To whomever it was who posted Henrik and Orland showing our new unis, props to you sir. 1st time I've seen those pics.

Yep! They played it all last year on Versus I believe. Hilarious.

I never could get used to the Kings purple & gold uniforms even after 20 years of watching them wear it. I used to travel a lot in my job and sometimes I'd take clients to Kings games on the road like in St. Louis or Boston or wherever, and I'd often be asked "how can you stand those purple/gold uniform colors?". My biggest problem with those colors is they represent (for me anyway) two decades of mediocrity. With the exception of the Miracle on Manchester, Goring's OT goal against Boston, the dominate 1974/75 105 point season, and a small handful of other games, those 20 years of purple/gold are filled with too many sad memories.

It was so refreshing when those White/Silver home uniforms debuted with Wayne's arrival in 88'. Those are still my favorites.

I think my favorite is the gold with the new crown you see in the last picture. The new crown is much more manly than the old one. That's a nice blend of new and old, so something for everybody.

So when do these go on sale? They are beautiful.

I guess it would be just wrong for Murray to start Bernier on Saturday after Quick went to all that trouble

Yeah but the Kings only had one(two?) good run under Wayne as well. Face it every color has had a little good, a little more bad and a lot of average.

I think I like the purple and gold because it doesn't look like every other team out there. The black and white is boring. It just blends into the background. It says look somewhere else. The current colors (not the thirds) are ok. They look like a lot of other teams that are trying to sell jerseys. I like a lot of the ones people have posted in this and other threads. A mix of the old and new.

Quick is a pimp for going balls out with the Vachon tribute.
