Why polar bears for the Leafs and Blues?

Their mascots are both bears.

No, but plenty of the other mascots in that picture do.

...and? It's an independent artist. Probably just a stylistic choice.

You're absolutely right. With how bright the red and yellow are, they bleed together too much and the yellow gets lost with the white. Adding black trim vastly improved the look.

 

However, I'd make the argument that the best they've looked, to be more specific, was the 2006-07 season because they dropped the horse snot alternate.

 

 

Agreed.  The black alternate had outworn its welcome the second the black 'C' was introduced.

Nothing, I just like consistency :P

Looks like Johnny Canuck and the Blue Jacket are the only ones not in jerseys. That's interesting. The flaming horse for Calgary goes into that "things they'd rather forget" category. It's a great picture, certainly blows away that whole  NHL Guardian Project the whole league would rather forget.

Why is the Whalers one all timid? 

 

identity crisis. He's a whale...and a whaler...and whalers hunt whales, whalers kill whales, but he's a whale, and a whale is on the shoulder of the jersey, so the whale on the jersey is hunted by the whalers in the jersey and I need to sit down for a minute because my head hurts.

It's just for warm-ups. They've done this already twice this season with their original forum blue jersey (11/23 vs NYI) and their '80s gold jersey (12/10 vs Ott).

Carolina is a pig?

That's their mascot... Stormy the Pig. 

 

I also noticed that each team is wearing their best jersey (From the sets they had, when this was made. Caps Alt. is currently retired) except the Canucks, Blue Jackets, and Penguins... They're not even wearing jerseys...

Not just a pig. A VERY ANGRY pig!!! Seriously look at the rage etched across his face as he howls at his enemies with storm flags attached to his hockey stick. He's out to get revenge on the entire Pork industry.

RAUUUUUUUURGHHHHH!!!!!

Maybe I'm overlooking on mobile, where did you find links to the individual characters?

If I was wearing a uniform as awful as that, I'd be angry too :P.  But seriously, what Carolina did in 2013 has to be one of the worst downgrades in recent memory.  No character what-so-ever and I hate uniform sets that don't match.  Cardinal sin of sports branding.

Right, they went from a fairly unique jersey with the flags at the hem and a smart shoulder logo, to looking like team Canada. A step in the wrong direction was the piping on the shoulders they got when they switched to edge jerseys.
