I thought this would be good to start after seeing the Winter Classic unis today. Having said that, these Montreal jerseys are the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. Straight to number 1 in my book.

I won't go that far on Montreal's jerseys, but this game is a great look.

 

Ryan Kennedy of Hockey News posted his top 50 sweaters of all time...

Here's the top ten: http://www.thehockey...-time-nos-10-1/

 

I agree that San Jose's throwbacks are a great look. Chicago is probably my current favorite.

 

There's some changes on the way with Florida getting new threads and a new logo next year. Toronto is doing the same. Pittsburgh is getting a new look (the assumption is that they're going to make their current throwbacks the primary home and away).

 

I think Ottawa should make the switch to these full time (with an actual logo instead of the 'O')

I'm with Hoss on Montreal's being very good, but not #1 ever.

 

Have to disagree on the Sharks' jersey.  Wouldn't be anywhere close to #1 for me.  Much better than their current ones, but not great. 

 

I do like the Ottawa "O" jerseys, but I wouldn't want to replace the "O" with their current logo.  Something more than just a looks-like-a-zero, perhaps, but not their logo.

 

Blackhawks are definitely near the top, as are most of the original-six teams.  Canadiens, in general, are always near the top for me.  The current Oilers jerseys are really nice, too.

 

I may be a little biased, but ...

Absolutely love the Montreal Winter Classic sweaters.  They are so clean.  They've always had some super-bright white.. but these things are great.

 

The Boston one's look good from a distance but I am not a fan of the logo.  Everything else is nice.

Notice I didn't say "their logo" for Ottawa? I don't like their current logo. An actual logo would be nice. Go back to the profile view of the senator. That was much better.

Sharks aren't number one for me, either, but they're up there.

Rochester has a GREAT uniform history.

Give me either a simple look with something that sets you apart from the rest (think San Jose's currents or throwbacks, Montreal's reds, Chicago) or complicated clean (Washington's throwbacks, Pittsburgh's throwbacks, St. Louis' currents).

While I don't mind their current away jerseys (silver pits, trim and piping, in particular) as much as some, these definitely were better.  Too bad they never had a real authentic one for sale (the only "Winter Classic" jersey released was just their old whites; no laces, different construction, etc.)  Still kicking myself for not buying the full Pominville set (jersey, pant covers and socks) that was on Ebay a year or two later.

Lighten up that blue some and make the logo bigger and you've got the jerseys this team should wear forever and ever and ever.

For me, there should be a rule of thumb for all sports when it comes to jerseys. Most teams need to get back to the brighter colors, especially with where tv technology is at today.

Does anyone know when the Sabres will introduce a 3rd again? Is there anything out there regarding possible new looks? My vote would be original Royal Blue colorway always but I'm still interested in seeing something new either way.

For our next winter classic here, what about our 1st jersey but royal blue where the white is and gold where the blue shoulders are. Can anyone art that up? I think the colors would be amazing.

If this franchise wants to make a killing on jerseys they will go back to the royals (everybody will buy one) and then wear the black and reds for an outdoor game.

The little boy though. The man is the BC mountain man who raised d4rk and a pack of wolf cubs.


Even though I've been a Swampy when it comes to uniforms (just give me what we had, no thirds, no nonsense), I am saddened that we can't have an occasional cool alternate look for a third or an outdoor game or what have you. I just can't trust our people. For those wishing for a new look, be careful what you wish for.

:lol:

And I agree with you on the other point. I have absolutely zero faith that anyone involved with the Sabres could get this right.

It would have to be an outdoor game against the Flyers or the Sens. The alumni game alone for that would be worth it.
