How many teams still use that vertical striping? Off the top of my head, I can think Calgary, Colorado, and St. Louis. I guess Buffalo's homes too. I know there are more. I'm shocked it's lasted this long.
I know I'm in the minority on this but I loved the vertical piping that came out when Reebok first revamped the league. I occasionally buy random jerseys just to use at open hockey and almost all of the ones I've bought over the last decade have had the vertical stripes including the original Reebok Oilers and Blues designs as well as the current Sabres blue with the gray piping. I also bought the current Michigan St jersey that has vertical stripes similar to all the Nike jerseys from the 2006 Olympics.
A lot of the traditional jerseys are also beautiful but IMO younger franchises like the Lightning should have a more modern look and not pretend to be the Red Wings.
