LA Kings Retro Current Jersey Concept

Recommended Posts

I mentioned my intent to do this in the "Which NHL Logo Should Be Brought Back?" thread yesterday. I suggested the Kings return to their old logo only as an alternate and use the same colour scheme, but use their present jersey pattern, as well. So here goes...

These are really nice. The only thing though is that I thought LA ditched silver and black when the Traitors (Raiders) ran away with their tails between their legs. Then again, most of LA still considers themselves as part of the Traitor Nation, so these might just fit in. And, I do like the recolored shoulder patches. Good work.

Eh, it doesn't work for me. Mostly because that logo was awful.

Jerry:You yada yada yada'd over the best part!!

Elaine:No, I mentioned the bisk.

Sorry, I had to get that in there. About the Uniforms, I agree with Mockba. If was going to use that logo, I'd change the font, the Kings chose an awful font for it.

very nice. i like the logo because it brings back the days of Wayne Gretzky and the only year they were serious contenders for the cup. It also incorporates their current jersey design, which i like.

2 thumbs up from the solo thrashers fan. :notworthy:

You DARE to mock the greatness that is Times New Roman?

Man, I hear ya. That's almost as bad as the X-Men movies using Arial Bold for their posters & DVD covers...

Man, i have forever hated that damn logo. I don't care if it is associated with "The Great One", it's just a bad logo. BLAH!

Nice concept though, it has that throwback look, yet is current.

Thanks for the comments guys. As a Kings fan, I am required to like the logo. All I can say is that any logo the Kings have used or will use in the future is a hundred times better than whatever crap their cross-town rivals come up with (thank you, Disney :cursing: ).

How about this one? Is this logo better suited for the jersey, or no?

Nah, it's too monochrome. I really like their current look, except for the way the name/number look on the dark jerseys.

Well, the problem there was that they were queens' crowns forever, not kings'.

I like the current logo. I think they should ditch the silver for metallic gold and keep the current scheme relatively intact (also, kill the stupid "Los Angeles" script on the bottom of the sweaters). I heard the black and silver look of the early 90s was under heat because of kids associating it with gangs or something stupid like that.

Do we all agree the "Los Angeles" has to go at the bottom of the sweater?
