Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Sergei Fedorov as a blue jacket :

I always forgot he played for them.

Nah man, Fed as a Duck is way weirder (Same for Lupul and Kunitz LOL):

I know Chris Kunitz is a decent player, but he's also been incredibly fortunate in his career. He's got a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Won a cup with the Ducks in 2007, got traded to the Penguins in 2009 and won a cup there. His chemistry with Crosby led to him being picked for Team Canada and he won a gold medal there. There's a lot of players as good as Kunitz who haven't fallen into the same kind of success.

BTW, the Blue Jackets traded Francois Beauchemin to Anaheim for Federov. Beauchemin has been a solid presence for the Ducks (and Leafs and Ducks again) ever since. Federov scored 39 goals in 185 games as a Blue Jacket. Dougie Maclean had no patience in developing players and instead went after old names like Federov and Adam Foote. Guys he thought would sell tickets. Winning sells tickets, Doug.

Torre played 5 seasons with the Cardinals (1969-74) and then managed them for another five years from 1990-95. He wore a Cardinal uniform almost as long as he wore a Yankee uniform.

If anything THIS is Joe Torre in the wrong uniform:

Have Steve Thomas on the mighty ducks. Also, having good players doesn't automatically make team your good.

Examples, the 2012 Miami Marlins and 2013 Toronto Blue Jays. Holy crap! Maybe there was some kind of curse following that group of players involved in the big offseason deals in their respective years!

Ed Belfour as a Shark. Only played 13 games, and only had Sharks coloured gear for half of those.

Looks like a bit of airbrushing/photoshopping went on in the card on the left.

That's what I thought, but there are more pics of him in Sharks gear on Google

I can agree with that, however Torre also played (1975-1977) and managed (1977-1981) the Mets. I find it interesting that Torre both played and managed 3 teams out of 5 that he's ever been a part of (Braves, Cardinals & Mets) with the exception of the Yankees & Dodgers.
