    Default Jersey Talk from Puck Daddy

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...151405562.html

    The St. Louis Blues announced their new uniforms this week, fortunately bringing the number of teams that still stick with the visible “piping” down the sides or down the sleeves of their jerseys down by one.

    You'll notice that when jerseys of this type are introduced, everyone says, “Oh this jersey looks so great.” St. Louis's new ones are gorgeous. Fits in pretty well with the rest, too. Boston's? Great. Carolina's? Great. Chicago's? Great. Dallas's? Great. Edmonton's? Minnesota's? Montreal's? Both New York teams? You can go right down the list.

    Jerseys without piping or unnecessary stripes are the ones people like the most, and the reason why is simple: Those things are ugly and unnecessary.

    The good news is that another one biting the dust here brings us that much closer to a piping-free and more aesthetically pleasing National Hockey League. Hopefully everyone else will join the ranks soon. And then we can turn our collective attentions to getting rid of the real scourge of uniform wearing in this league: black jerseys.There are two teams in this league that should be allowed to wear black, and it's Boston and Pittsburgh. That's it. (And I'd listen to an argument that the Pens should go back to powder blue full-time.) Kings go back to purple — there's not enough purple around here — and everyone else throws their black thirds in the garbage. Then we never speak of it again.
    It's summertime, so it's time for another uniform fight!!! B*tches!!!

    You reading this Luc. The Kings should not be wearing the colors of your junior team.

    I'd be fine going back to forum blue and whatever that yellow is. Make our 3rd jerseys the full time primary jersey

    Coincidence don't = causality.

    They suck.

    They have both the nondescript black and the effeminate piping (still waiting for the doilies).

    The Kings could have won 2 Cups rockin' BK ponchos. That doesnt really matter. The black and white jerseys are not aesthetically pleasing. Case in point. My nieces and nephews call the home plate/Raider/nWa jerseys the 'Ugly Jerseys'

    I don't think the point was they won the cup because of the jerseys, only that now the cups are won the jerseys are part of the cup tradition. The banners in the rafters will forever have the home plate theme. Changing colors now would be akin to the franchise turning its back on a cup winning tradition.

    Personally, I always felt the home plate uniform looked like old school prison stripes.

    I've already said enough on this subject. The OP's story pretty much sums it up. I don't expect changes anytime soon though. So I'll just continue to watch games on my black and white Zenith tube TV.

    Same here.

    I am, though, getting rather sick of having to grab one of the rabbit ears (with the tin foil on the ends) and then touch the wall to get a suitable picture.

    The team should change the player numbering to reflect the retro stance. Something like - 12AV6, 6BN6, 25L6GT, etc...
