You're kidding, right?

Because playing 8 years and being captain of the team makes it the wrong uniform for him...

Joe Thornton - BOS

Yeah, I don't know about this one. He was there for quite a while.

He was also a #1 overall so pretty high profile pick by the Bruins.

I think many people's first thoughts of Joe Thornton are as a Shark though. It's not like he accomplished anything in Boston. For all the (deserved) derision the Sharks of the past decade have gotten, they've at least had some measure of success.

I definitey wouldn't put Cano with those other two. He's actually put up pretty good numbers in Seattle.

 

Actually, what became Cano's first year in Seattle was also the last year of those specific Mariner jerseys (tweaked the MARINERS and SEATTLE font for last year)

It's a bit questionable how the 92 Blackhawks let him go, despite a solid performance in the Stanley Cup final as Belfour's backup. I never knew he was once in that position at the start of his career.

Zach Parise's first year in Minnesota was the last year of those road jerseys for the Wild

I wouldn't say WRONG uniform. Even though we have the new road jerseys, that still looks normal for Parise. (It might be that I watched pretty much every game, but... :D)

But it's not a "wrong" uniform if he spends almost half his career there.

Dan Cloutier- Detroit Red Wings (2009 preseason)

I was a Cloutier fan (had his home white Canucks jersey). Total bummer to see him in his very brief Detroit stint.

Well Bure played 4 seasons in Florida and 7 in Vancouver. It would have made more sense to post a pic of him in a Rangers uni.

Can't believe he spent parts of 2 seasons with the Kings to end his NHL career.

Bonus picture in the wrong mask!

Agreed. I'm not a particularly big hockey fan, but I immediately know that Thornton played for both Boston and San Jose upon hearing his name. If it surprises you that someone played for a team, then that team's jersey is the "wrong" one for him. I think almost everyone knows that Thornton played for Boston.

Vinny Lecavalier's only season as a King. But, then again, it wasn't the whole season.

I'm sure it's like the situation with the NYR- with two teams coming in the expansion draft the Blackhawks had to leave one goaltender unprotected and risk losing him for nothing. I'm sure they wanted Hasek as only a backup at that point since Belfour was an elite goaltender. 

 

They traded Hasek for what they can get, exposed their new backup "Waite" to the expansion draft and didn't lose him and gained other assets.

 

Buffalo probably exposed Fuhr, Hasek or Draper in the expansion draft and none were selected. 

 

Rangers traded Vanbiesbrouck to the Canucks to avoid losing him for nothing, and the cancks wanted him just to expose in th draft so they would not lose McLean.
