SI Ranks the NHL's New Third Jerseys

Recommended Posts

The Isles at 15 out of 19? Really?

"Automatic points for keeping the fish sticks guy off of it. Going back to the old colors, again, is nice if only for reminding Islanders fans that this was a dominant, winning team once upon a time."

Whereas teams (Pens #1, Philly #3, Canadiens #4 (so a Centennial celebration jerseys officially counts as thirds?), Blackhawks #5, Oilers, #6, TML #8), in other classic looks are higher?

I agree with them for the most part, flyers shouldv'e been #2 (I'd say #1, but everyone loves those pens jerseys so much, and I do agree its good lookin)

I'm going to disagree here, as I see the Flyers' thirds as being horrible. Yes, I know they're mimicking what they used to wear, but that doesn't make it actually look good. It's all in the details--mismatched nameplate and numbers spilling out of the striping.

totally agree. the isles at 15 is ridiculous. one spot behind the BOLTS jersey?! riiiiight. considering that the oilers almost have an identical design, it's fairly amusing to see them 9 spots higher.

no contest on the pens and blues being 1-2. they're by far and away the best of the bunch.

I guess I liked the Kings jersey a little more than they did.

I agree with you on the top seven, but my list goes a little like this:

1. St. Louis

2. Toronto

3. Montreal

4. Pittsburgh

5. Buffalo

6. Vancouver

7. Islanders

8. Edmonton

...And I also wholeheartedly agree that the shortened nicknames on the front of the jerseys (and wordmarks in general on hockey jerseys) just plain suck.

Thank you.

I'd rather they just go back to the orange jersey relegated to "alt" status a few years ago. Some retro is "tacky-cool". This is just tacky.

I like some of these a lot. I can't wait till the Panthers decide to bust one out. I hope they do more to it than just the same design, different color.

But most of those vintage looks actually are appealing.

Gauge my eyes out blue with bright orange, huge stripes that aren't consistent throughout the design--I don't see how it deserves top 10 myself.

I should have included Vancouver in my list of the ones I liked. I guess I was just so stunned by how ugly the others were that I missed it.
