So great to see yellow/gold making a comeback in the NHL as a primary colour. Unfortunately, it's always been set up to fail by average to poor teams until the Predators adopted it full-time. If the Kings had kept their original purple and gold going into the Gretzky era but with the original template and had the Canucks kept the original Stick In Rink instead of going with the Flying V plus having highly skilled players to compete with the Oilers and Islanders, yellow/gold would be as popular as many of the classic whites and dark colours.

The '80 was not a crazy time for hockey uniforms. Colorful, yes but not crazy. The generic BBFS 90's with uniforms with diagonal hemlines and mountain and wavy designs were a crazy time for hockey unis.

 

You are in a very high minority because I, too, loved the unique home yellow/gold of the Canucks and Kings along with their matchups vs the greens of the North Stars & Whalers and reds of the Flames(classics), Red Wings, Devils w/dark green and Capitals.
