I thought you were going to say "running backs" rather than "uniforms" and I was going to have to bust a cap in your hindquarters...

Looks like the Drill Sergeant from Full Metal Jacket dressed as a pirate.

I love that the Pirates announcers wear that logo on their jackets on throwback Sundays. It's an underrated logo.

That would warrant a severe response.   But the statement about the uniforms deserves a meaning scowl.

The original six do not house the best looking teams in the NHL.  Only Boston, Detroit and Chicago deserve this distinction.

Out of curiosity, what teams would you put above the Rangers, Canadiens, and Leafs?

 

Personally, I do think the Devils, Islanders, and Oilers can give Detroit a run for their money (I'd personally put the other O6 teams head-and-shoulders above everyone else). I'd take each of their home sweaters above the Red Wings' actually - I suppose that may be an unpopular opinion itself. Though I don't think any of them can match Detroit's superb white sweater, which is probably neck-and-neck with the Hawks for best road uniform in the NHL.

Stars, Blues, and Devils spring to mind immediately.

The Hawks don't have the best road jersey in the league... 

 

I'd say 

  • Wings
  • Blues
  • Wild
  • Boston
  • Hawks

Maybe the Rangers after that...

The Hawks might have the best home jersey in the league

The Hawks might have both the best home jersey and the best road jersey in the league.

 

(Gun to my head, I'd say Montreal has the absolute best home jersey in the league, but I can't argue with anyone who prefers the Hawks' red duds.)

Alright, so....

 

I like these ten times better than the currents:

There, I said it. 

 

But, if you ask me what the best Warriors uniform of all time is? It's this one:

 

ap_golden_warriors_2_kb_150528_4x3_992.j

 

The "City" uniforms are great on the front and shorts, but the crammed "number in the trolley car" gimmick just doesn't work for me. And while the currents aren't bad, if you're going to hearken to the throwback inspired crest and numbers on front, you've got to do it on a uniform that is more traditional to really complete the throwback inspired look. The modern(ish) look just doesn't work or mesh with it, even if the side panels are supposed to nod to the bridge. It's just too much competing for my attention. To me, choose one or the other. Modern application with just a wordmark and numbers, or crest and numbers on a more classic uniform.

I agree. The black outlines in their current uniform really makes everything pop out a lot better. If you change the black facemask back to blue it would be perfect.

I agree with your whole post. The current uniforms don't work for me because of the huge blue / yellow badge an a white / blue jersey. Worked much better on their classic uniforms (like the one you posted above). And I really liked the Warriors in navy and orange.

Actually the thin helmet stripe bugs the heck out of me...

Not very overrated. I rather take this look than looking close to the Carolina Panthers!!!

The Lions looked much better. Even I think the Cowboys should do the Metallic Cyan pants on both the navy and white tops and the helmet go Metallic Cyan too.

I fail to see how the Panthers and Lions are considered identical.

On soccer unis, I vastly prefer shoulder adidas stripes to side ones:
