    This is to see what people think the worst jerseys of all time hockey related are. I figured since we had a thread for best uniforms ever, we needed a worst uniforms ever thread.

    I am going to go with the Nashville Predators third jersey, the Bruins third jerseys. Honorable mention goes to the Islanders gorton fishermans jerseys, and any whalers jersey. :shakehead

    Be sure to check out the history of jerseys in the NHL at http://nhluniforms.com/ for reference.

    Worst ever:
    Ducks alternate '95-'96
    -I just don't understand. I guess little kids would love it.

    2nd Worst:
    Tampa alternates '96-'99
    -Oh, it's a storm. On the jersey. With rain drops and waves. Cute.

    3rd Worst:
    Coyotes original jerseys
    -I briefly lived in Phoenix, which happened to be when the Jets moved there to become the Coyotes. The style of artwork on the jersey was very popular at the time, to the point of being a trend. I think jerseys based on current trends, colorwise or stylewise, are awful ideas. This one leads the pack.

    4th Worst:
    Islanders home & away ('95 to '97 seasons)
    -So I can stand the fisherman, at least the link to Long Island makes sense. Asymmetric design, fine. Color scheme, not hot, but I've seen worse. But WHY, WHY, WHY are the names and numbers CURVED.


    HM:
    Predators current 3rd jersey
    -Was this a contest to find the ugliest yellow ever?

    Caps teal jerseys
    -Not a big fan of trendy colors, especially teal

    Ducks uniforms in general before the redesign
    -Again, awful color trend in teal and purple

    I don't know who these are, but this was emailed to me a while back and they are just awful. Most likely a gimmick game though.

    Special promotion by the Quad City Mallards of the UHL. Jerseys were auctioned off after the game, I believe.

    Looking at the badges and handcuffs I would venture a guess that this is a police team.

    However the worst unis would have to the Canucks' Halloween horrors (the "V")

    The replacement was not much of an improvement:

    If we're talking minor leagues, too, I'm going to have to give a link to one of the funniest hockey sites online, The Bush League Factor (http://www.bushleaguefactor.com/) where minor league logos are ranked by how awful they are.

    How about this?

    Rockies and Golden Seals and the Caps star jersey.

    I love the Fisherman. One of my favourites.

    Have the Capitals ever had a decent looking uniform ?

    This uniform is probably the best they've ever had, and the logo has the U.S. Capital building on it...lol

    IMO, the most impotant thing about a jersey is the colors. Most jerseys nowadays have completely bland and boring colors, like the Capital's current black jersey.

    Hands down, the Vancouver Canucks school bus uniforms.

    And some of those Halloween costumes the NHL stars used to wear in the early 80s All Star Games were just horrendous.

    Possibly the best hockey decision Keenan's ever made.

    I have asked this before, but this really boggels my mind. THey are the Capital of a country that's colours are Red, White, and Blue. I do not see those colours anywhere on their jerseys.:dunno:

    Leonsis is an Idiot.

    B's original 3rd jerseys - the mustard yellow sweater with the happy lil bear on it - is far and away the worst, IMHO.

    Of course, as a Bruins fan, I might be just a little bit biased here.

    Bruins Pooh-bear 3rd Jersey was the worst I've seen in the recent NHL.
