NHL Stadium Series Jerseys

Yeah, definitely. I'd like it if the Kings could let go of their numbers, though. They feel like such an unnecessary holdover from the days of Ian Laperriere.

The numbers are fine, it's the bland color scheme that really sucks ass, as well as the Edgeifed primary uniforms.

It's funny: I hate the Nets in black and white, but don't mind the Kings in black and white with hints of silver. Something about it suits their current identity as a very simple, no-nonsense kind of team. That and a third color is always nice. Even the dark uniforms are nice in their utilitarian simplicity, except that the numbers and NOBs are too fancy.

I'd agree with you on the colors if the Kings didn't look so nice in purple and gold.

I may be the only person who thinks this, but I think that the Rangers SS warmups are better than the real thing.

Make the gray undersleves red, or even better, pinstriped, and that's a hot SS jersey.

The Kings' numbers are fine since they fixed that absurd top serif on the "1". The name font, though, is atrocious, and there;s probably no more egregious example of it than a Kopitar jersey. You take a good look at it and, good Lord, everything about it blows.

The other problem with the Kings' current look (besides the pencil point) is that they use sparkle silver twill as an outline right against the white, and it gets lost, making the numbers look like overly-thick blobs on TV. Change to a flat gray like they used in the Gretzky years and/or make the numbers 3-layer with black in the middle, and it will look heaps better. The flat gray base on tonight's Stadium Series jerseys gives a very nice contrast with the black and white elements.

There is a real irony in the Anaheim DUCKS completely decked out in hunter orange...

so much orange...so much orange...

and CHROME! THE LOGOS ARE SO SHINY! It was totally worth it (/sarcasm)

Puck me, that's hilarious

Actually, it's not whatsoever. But as far as the jerseys go, watching the game on tv, I can't read the Ducks numbers except when they are up close. So if the tv camera can't see the numbers, I wonder how the people in the stands can see them.

I'm not having that problem with the Ducks' numbers. They're pretty easy to read from the normal camera angle.

It'd be great if Hiller wore those pads for the rest of the year and brighten up their current set just a bit.

I actually went to the game. Took some photos: http://t.co/x0VjZ2kFo3

For the most part, the view was great even though I was all the way up in the top deck. Yeah, the numbers were hard to see (obviously) but the contrast in color uniforms was really good and it was still easy to see the puck even though I was far away. Aesthetically, it wasn't bad at all. But that's probably because I didn't have the luxury or watching it at home in HD.

And they were selling these. Had them in Dodgers and Angels

Man I'm falling in love with those Ducks jerseys.

The Ducks looked so cool wearing those last night. They are far superior to their bland homes. I really wish they would go to those full time. Of course it needs a bit of work like shoulder yokes, the removal of the "OC" and reduced logo and number size, but other than that. I thought they were awesome.

Arm stripes that wrap all the way around, hem stripes, and a de-chrome'd logo would make the Ducks' Stadium Series sweater good enough to wear full time.

So in other words, a whole new jersey? lol

That's my primary gripe with them. it looks like an unfinished concept that someone started but never completed.

Nice pics of the event. That Kings sweater, despite the jersey foul, is a beaut. I didn't realize their numbers were sparkly silver. That serif'd 1 is still ugly though.
