Here's a list of my 10 favorite NHL unis. Past and present.
  • 10. Vancouver Canucks: Say what you will about having the team's name on the front, but these are great. They combined the classic with the modern and became one of the few good Reebok uniforms around.
  • 9. Calgary Flames (2003 home/away): A good color combo with a stylized letter. The flaming "A" (which came from the Atlanta Flames) for the alternates just sets it off.
  • 8. Colombus Blue Jackets: One of the few good looking Reebok sweeters out there. I love the Ohio flag logo. It remindes me of the old Hanna-Barbaria cartoons.
  • 7. Montreal Canadiens: Just classic.
  • 6. L.A. Kings (2000): It's purple, black, and silver (just like TCU) and it's got a shield logo. Just a little better than their silver and black Gretzky unis, IMO.
  • 5. Edmonton Oilers (2000): Navy blue with orange trim and a simple "OILERS" inside a circle with an orange oil drop is to die for.
  • 4. Dallas Stars (1999): The championship sweaters. I, like most here in the DFW area miss these and are mad that they're gone. These were one of the best uniforms in all of sports becuase it was unique with its star shaped top.
  • 3. Pittsburgh Penguins (2002 and throwbacks): The black and vegas gold V tops were great. The powder blue and navy is even better and thank God they at least kept this one.
  • 2. Chicago Blackhawks: Just like the Bulls, the black and red just fits the team's name and logo.
  • 1. Toronto Maple Leafs: I can't tell you how much I love these. No other sweater comes close to this simple and classic, one color uniform. The throwback with the realistic leaf is the best of all.

Honorable mentions:

-Boston Bruins
-St. Louis Blues
-Washington Caps
-New York Islanders and Rangers.

You MUST be a Red Wings hater to have left them off of that list!

Long live the WINGED WHEEL! Anchor of the greatest jersey in all of team sports!!

Now that I got that out of my system, my other faves are:

Boston
Montreal
Florida
Philadelphia
Carolina
Chicago
New Jersey
St. Louis

My least faves:

Colorado: purple & blue? UGLY!
Vancouver: most recent logo with old colors does NOT go together.
Atlanta: especially their new 3rd jersey - have you seen it??
Anaheim: why on EARTH did they ditch the duck billed goalie mask??
Minnesota: they look like Santa's elves skating around in that horrible green & red!

It's not that I hate them (truth be told, I just don't care anything about 'em), I just left them off because they're not MY favorite.

Although, I like the Red Wings and Sabres throwback uniforms. I like a lot of NHL uniforms, but I just left them off the top ten.
