    Absolutely love this jersey. One of the few I have not been able to track down for a reasonable price.

    I like the colors in that jersey. I think it would look good updated without the smiley face crown and "Los Angeles" across the bottom.

    Until they bring some color back (purple/gold), all the jerseys look like cr@p.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. I always thought it was strange how this team can't embrace it's heritage. You don't see teams like Detroit changing from Red to Blue. Why does LA have such an identity crisis?

    It all started when they embraced the Raiders colors to seem more like an LA team. The odd part was that they went back and had some purple for quite a few years and inexplicably changed back to black/white/silver. I can only assume that they want back to those colors to be more closely associated with their modern, most popular time ala Gretzky. Sadly, I don't think they're going back anytime soon beyond some type of throwback.

    This is my all-time fave Kings jersey/uni. I had that same Deadmarsh one, but stupidly sold it years ago.

    Luc's in charge of the business side of the organization, including the marketing department that decides on jerseys.

    He says the players dont' like wearing purple. He also played mostly in the black/white era with the Kings (though he began and ended in purple). He's also a labrador in a man suit.

    So it's grayscale from here on out, kids.

    I was never a fan of the blue, but even it was better than no color at all like they have now. They don't have to have as much purple and gold as the old days... but they need something, anything to give some color back to the fans. I don't believe Luc saying all the players hate purple. He probably hates it.

    I agree, the black/white is boring. That's why I've never bothered to buy one.

    I think I'll look on Ebay for another early 2000's Deadmarsh 3rd jersey, as pictured above.
