Best-

White Blackhawks

White Sabres classic (will have to show blue some love as well)

White Habs

White Wings

Gold Kings (inaugural)

Orange Flyers

Red '80s Flames

Blue '80s Oilers

Green '80s Whalers

Black early '90s Penguins

I'd love to get a Blues style in there but I am all out of slots.

Worst-

Islanders current alt

Islanders Fisherman in white, I guess, they were both terrible

Ducks Wild Wing

Yellow "V" Canucks

California Golden Seals green with the secondary logo (several options really)

Cleveland Barons red

Stars Mooterus

Sabres white banana slug

Thrashers red alts

Kind of hard to pick a tenth one. Canucks have had some stinkers for sure, Kings 80s uniforms (and some recent ones) were pretty stinky. The Stars have gotten progressively crappier in appearance since their arrival in Dallas. You can never go wrong making fun of the Coyotes, their weird greyhound ones are hideous and all their early ones were, um, adventurous.

What do you guys think???

Thanks for remembering that. I did take a different approach, calling some jerseys that other label as "worst" as "curious" or "weird", leaving me room to say it's a bizarre jersey but I can see what they were trying to do with it.

The WIld Wing is still the one jersey that makes me angry that they made professionals wear it. It's deplorable in a way the Burger King just doesn't equal.

You and I think alike...I almost always prefer the white uniform over the darks and don't like Red when it's used in large doses. All the colors on that side of the spectrum just don't work for me...Red should be an accent color, same goes for orange (sorry Flyers fans) and yellow (sorry Preds fans). I recognize with the Wings it would be tough to design a dark uniform that's not solid red because there isn't a third color, but I wish they could redo it somehow.

My favorite current jerseys are all whites...Wings, Leafs, Stars Third (with the logo, not with DALLAS on front), Senators, Habs, Sabres, Jackets, Jets, Rangers.

I can't believe there is even a discussion about this. Well at least a discussion who should be #1...The Indian Head Sweater worn in Chicago!! It's a no brainer. How many time was it voted as the BEST uniform and jersey?? Over the years the Indian Head has developed into a LEGEND in the professional world of sports uniforms.

Now, there are many other nice looking sweaters in the NHL...But none compare to the Indian Head and tomahawks!!!

I really think Chicago has the best looking jerseys. But I might be biased.

The only jersey I really don't like, well it's not even the whole jersey, but I hate the name font the Flames use.

Oh man I disagree with you a LOT. How can Montreal's home be on the worst list but the Duck's third monstrosity be on the best?

And I personally love the new Predators jerseys. The gold shade is beautiful.

You have to have the Rangers and Bruins on any list of best jerseys.

As for worst, I hate the Wild jersey with the anmal profile.

BEST (in no particular order)

North Stars (until they went to black)

Maple Leafs (except the ones with the TML shoulder logo)

Stars home and away from '99-'07

Red Wings

Blackhawks (except the ugly black alternates)

Kings from '67 until '88 (don't like any of their black jerseys much)

Nordiques (best jerseys ever in my opinion)

Rangers

Bruins (the only team that should be allowed to wear black jerseys)

Oilers from '79 until '96

TOTAL CRAP (in my humble but correct opinion)

Penquins after 1980

Stars current home and road

Ducks current home and road

Sharks (anything after '07 and the black alternate from '01-07)

Kings from '98 until '11

Lightning current jerseys

Canucks (any jersey with that stupid whale thing on the front)

Sabres (any jersey with the slug on the front)

Senators black jerseys from '92 until '99

With very few exceptions, any black based jersey not worn by the Bruins.

Best

1. Montreal Canadiens Red

2. Boston Bruins 1949-1955 road (the most wonderful, overlooked sweater in league history)

3. Chicago Blackhawks white

4. Dallas Stars 1999-2006 green

5. New York Rangers 1999-2007 navy Liberty alternate

6. New York Americans 1930-1938 home

7. New York Rangers 1997-2007 road blue

8. Ottawa Senators 2011-12 heritage alternate

9. Pittsburgh Penguins 1980-1992 road black

10. Ottawa Senators 1917-1921 barberpole

Worst

1. Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 1995-96 Wild Wing alternate - an insult to professionals everywhere

2. Dallas Stars 2003-2006 Mooterus alternate - a s*** logo and no reason for the red color. none.

3. Golden Seals 1974-1976 road - colors too delicate for even a newborn's room

4. New York Islanders 2011-12 black alternate - STUPID beyond belief. Ugly as ###### too.

5. Los Angeles Kings 1995-96 Burger King alternate - too ugly to live, too weird to die. Long live the King!

6. Nashville Predators 2001-07 baby poop alternate - If your jersey can be described as baby poop, it's s***ty.

7. Colorado Avalanche 2009- alternate - promoting the worst color from a crap palette is a bad idea.

8. Philadelphia Flyers 2002-2007 orange road & 2007-2010 white road - Why are the arms only half orange? Why does the black shape start only half way down the arms? The orange jersey has the same issues, only in reverse. So much unanswered idiocy it hurts.

9. Buffalo Sabres 2006-2010 Buffaslug. Take away the slug logo for a minute and take in just how awful the jersey it went on was. The pairing of the crap jersey with the crap logo emits toxic fumes.

10. Los Angeles Kings 2002-07 purple alternate w/coat of arms crest - dark purple, black, dark sliver numbers, dark, dark, dark. So, you've started with a depressing as hell jersey, put the busiest, hardest to discern crest in league history on it and topping it off with a horrible name and number font combo saves you a place on this list.

Dishonorable mention - Phoenix Coyotes 1998-2003 green alternate - just say no to drugs when you design jerseys.

The Third String Goalie has spoken!
