Sweater Wars: The Top Ten NHL Jerseys

36 posts in this topic

1. New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils. Bet you didn't see this one coming, did you? The Devils jersey has all the components of an impressive uniform. Great colors in Red, Black, and White. An absolutely fantastic logo. And it's intimidating. The red and black take this jersey to the next level to make it easily the best in the league.

If it didn't come from the bleacher report, I would say pretty cool. Just about anyone can post anything on there.

Wow, nice I'm not the only one thinking that way. Turns out, the Devils' jerseys were actually one of the biggest reasons why I chose this team. :lol: I just had to pick a team in one of those older NHL games' demos and the Devils were one of the two, so I thought "hey, the 'Devils' sound intimidating, plus I like Manchester United, the Red Devils... and those jerseys look really sharp!". :evil: I know it sounds silly, but that's just the way it is: when you play a game and have to choose a team from a league you know nothing about, the only criteria are the city, name, logo, colours and jerseys. :) Then, when I started following the *real* NHL, I just sticked to New Jersey and I can honestly say it was the best choice I could do. Can't imagine myself rooting for someone else instead of them.

So, yeah, I always considered our jerseys some of the coolest in the league. :)

Wow, that was almost a Pepperkornish-level stream-of-conciousness, lol... ;) No offense, of course. :)

I LOVE the jersey and logo, but I'd still put it second behind le Bleu, Blanc, Rouge. But still, very cool to see :)

I love the Blues' jersey as well; I have a yellow center ice practice jersey of theirs I wear out skating on occasion.

I have always loved the following jerseys in no particular order:

Nordiques

Winnipeg Jets (the design right before they moved)

Blackhawks

NorthStars

Brett Hull-era Blues

late 80's to early 90's flying skae Canucks jersey

Devils (of course)

Rags (I know but it is pretty cool and influential)

original Sabres jersey

Bleacher Report is a cesspool. Its nice to get anything positive said about this franchise, but from them its like Chris Brown saying he's a Devils fan.

I love the wild jersey

I agree with this, I like theirs a lot too. I really dislike the Flyers but think they have a cool one as well as Toronto and Boston. I am old school though, I prefer the Devils christmas tree jersey colors over the current color scheme but that is me :).

While I love the old red and green, I've always wondered, does the color green and devil go together? Well we are the Garden State, so I guess it's a nice mixture.

That was the idea of the green & red jerseys. McMullen's wife thought they would be appropriate colors since NJ is the Garden State and the Jersey Devil lives in the Pinebarrens. That's the story I've been told several times.

Oh well it does make perfect sense. I love the red and green for a classic look.. But the current design is an intimidating look.

Without question the current jerseys are very intimidating. The great sustained success of this franchise tied to the classic and timeless horned and tailed NJ crest on the red and black jersey with the classic design makes the donner of the jersey look all the more formidable and intimidating.

I do love the red and green jerseys or as I like to call them "The Garden State Jerseys". They gave the young franchise a classic look with the Garden State Green that tied them to the state and it's residents coupled with the NJ logo that has stood the test of time. For their time they were very well designed. I have to say they are my favorite.

In my biased opinion, the Devs crest is the best, hands down...but I am biased.

The jersey however, could do well to lose the horrid black shoulders.......go straight red for the red jersey and white for the white jersey.

Just one man's opinion. But I would prefer going back to their roots and returning to the green and red.

How about something like the old Cleveland Barons jerseys? I do like these a lot.

Back when I was younger, we had a thing called an imagination. It helps me in situations like these where photoshops are not readily available:)
