Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Didn't Forsberg get his start with MoDo, his hometown team? And if I recall, he played for MoDo during the lockout. How is it the wrong uniform? Unless you think he looks wrong in anything but an Avs jersey.

It's not the team, it's how he looks in the uniform, which is very odd...

I didn't include the Flyers when he actually played for them, just after he was drafted.

If you dont understand, Ill explain.

You don't have to explain anything. They're in the right jerseys.

Parise was born and raised in Minnesota, so even though his Dad is Canadian and Zach could have played for the Canadians, Zach is American through and through.

Yeah, Hull was born in Canada, and spent a lot of time there, but he also lived in Chicago with his Dad, where all his other siblings were born. So, while he had dual citizenship, more than that, in '86 Team USA was the one who showed interest in him playing for them, not Canada. Hull decided to stick with that loyalty throughout his career.

I admire both of their decisions.

I have always identified Hull in a USA jersey. Now, Brett Hull in a Flames jersey is odd by comparison

Wrong position too.

I will give you that, but with the understanding he probably had as much of an impact with the 'Backs as he did with the Cubs, unlike the majority if not ALL the other entrants in this thread.

To us Canadians,both of them are traitors.
