    Kings current ones are among my least favorite. Nashville's yellow is hard to look at, especially when topped off with the hideous yellow helmet. Calgary's would go from near the bottom to near the top if they'd just change the C back to white. Sabres will once again be among my favorites when they get the right blue, the Navy blue sucks.
    I've always thought Chicago's & Detroit's jerseys were among the best.
    Guilty pleasure would be the Habs white jersey.

    Don't really love any of them. Hate that Sharks teal color. Hurts my eyes it's so dreadful.

    Best: Blackhawks red.

    It's iconic. It's simple. The black and white bars look great. The logo is perfect. (2nd place is the Leafs blue ones for similar reasons).

    Worst: Lightning

    The best thing you could say is that it's a rip-off of the good looking Leafs jersey. But to be honest the thing looks like a practice sweater. Overly simple, to the point of being boring. And the logo looks like it was made in msPaint. (2nd place is the Preds for similar reasons)

    Guilty Pleasure: Arizona
    [​IMG]
    Hard to explain why, but this looks great. Sinple, again. And a great logo. Plus the burgundy color scheme looks fantastic. (2nd place goes to Columbus for the stripes down the arm)

    I love Detroit’s away jersey

    I really hate the Flyers home jersey design

    Ill do two rankings. One for overall sets, and one for singular jerseys.

    Best Set: Gotta be Chicago
    Worst Set: Ottawa edges out Anaheim for me. Just so plain and uninspiring. Ducks 3rd saves them.

    Best singular jersey: tied between CGY 3rd and STL 3rd

    Worst singular jersey: Ducks white

    Guilty Pleasure: Stars green. Not the biggest fan of the logo, but that green looks real sharp on the ice. Excited to have more green in the league with Seattle coming in.

    The red is nice, but the logo is really over-rated. I'm not into the entire PC thing, nor am I protesting it, but that aside, I still think it's in poor taste.

    NJ's logo looks too much like a baseball logo, and I wouldn't say Columbus' logo is complicated with just a star and a flag, especially compared to some others.

    I think with color, and high-definition TVs and screens in the arena, technology has largely usurped the idea that overly simplified logos are better, and people in the upper bowel in arenas are likely just looking at the color contrast of the jerseys rather than the actual logos, anyway.

    It would be cool if someone (not me) were to make a poll on this topic. Although I think everyone would just homer vote their own teams, and we would have the original 6 teams being voted in first because of the size of their fanbases.

    Guilty pleasure for me would be the 90s flames jerseys. Back then I thought the striping pattern on the arms were the dopest thing ever. In retrospect they look a little bit over the top and silly, but I do appreciate a little bit of silly when it comes to sports and design in general. Sports can take things too seriously sometimes.

    There are lots of 'best' jerseys. Most of the league looks as close to perfect as you can get.

    Basically Perfect: Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Detroit, Florida, Minnesota, Montreal, Nashville, Islanders, Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Toronto,

    Good but needs subtle improvements: Buffalo, Carolina, Columbus, Edmonton, New Jersey, San Jose, Vegas, Winnipeg

    In need of a full scale overhaul: Anaheim, Phoenix, Calgary, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Vancouver, Washington

    Best; any Montreal or Toronto sweater. DET is good, too. STL is OK.

    Worst; Jets, Canucks

    Best (no particular order):

    Toronto away - classic and simple
    Rangers away - classic and simple
    Chicago home - classic and simple
    Philadelphia home - very eye-catching, made an unconventional colour their own. Cool in a 70s/WHA kinda way
    Capitals - love all three of their jerseys equally

    Worst:

    Buffalo home - such a dark and dingy shade of blue, seems to reflect the mood of the team at times :laugh:
    Edmonton home - awkward piping, dominant orange looks weird
    Canes black - blocky and dark
    Minnesota home: blah and forgettable, like the team itself
    Any nicknames in bold type (BOLTS, SENS, etc)
    Jets third - just why?

    Honourable Mention: Edmonton away
    Dishonourable Mention: Vancouver; could be a top 10 jersey if it wasn't for 'V A N C O U V E R'

    I've always liked the Wings, Leafs and Hawks.
    There are quite a few i think could use a makeover.
