Yesterday, I ranked the home uniforms in hockey since ESPN has been ranking uniforms in the "Big Four" major professional sports this week.
Obviously, there is a lot of criticism when it comes to articles like this since everyone sees things differently, but this is just my personal opinion; I'm not trying to slam anyone's team or praise anyone else's.
Anyway, here's a look at the best and worst white sweaters in hockey today.
The logo isn't terrible, but it looks like the logo is the only thing on the jersey. The template is very boring, and the colors (which are used by too many teams in the NHL) are in strange and hardly visible places.
The Senators need to fix this jersey. It's fine if they want to keep the logo, but the rest of the jersey needs a major overhaul.
A boring template and dull colors, this is worse than the home version.
The thing that puts this jersey so slow is the fact that the Penguins have gone on the ice with much better-looking jerseys throughout their history. Pretty much anything they've worn before would look better than this.
These aren't last because they use green, a color that the NHL needs a lot more of.
Sure, the wordmark and number belong in basketball and football instead of hockey and the design is boring, but the green looks very nice and bumps it up a few spots.
The colors are nice and the black pants and numbers look good with the jersey, but this has to be one of the worst templates in NHL history.
We've seen too much of in since the summer of 2007, and its unappealing design has caused some other teams to drop it already.
Despite a unique color scheme and design, something about these jerseys is just...boring.
The logo is somewhat creative but really tacky at the same time. The Ducks would look a whole lot better if they went back to being Mighty.
This looks better than the red version, but the wordmark is unnecessary unless it looks like the throwback third jersey and the template is strange and obnoxious.
The colors on this jersey are overused, and they are placed in the strangest spots on the sweater.
This jerseys aren't obnoxious or anything and the logo and color scheme aren't bad, but apart from the stripe across the shoulders and the elbow bands, there is absolutely nothing on this jersey; there's too much white.
Anyone else think it would look better if the stripe across the top was dark blue?
The logo on this jersey is great, but the rest is disappointing.
Other than the shoulder yoke, there's not a lot of color in this jersey. The Blues need to go back to a more solid an less minor league-ish type of design, even though this jersey isn't horrible by any means.
These jerseys aren't awful, and they're some of the better jerseys in Nashville's history. The guitar strings on the numbers, the guitar pick shoulder logo and the piano keys inside the collar are all great creative tributes to Nashville's music history.
The problem with these jerseys is that the template is very awkward and the logo is not as good as the old version.
The Predators needed to go with something like this instead.
This isn't a bad jersey by any means, but the Hurricanes seriously need to fix a few things about it.
First of all, the shoulder yoke outline is completely unneeded. Second, the primary logo is confusing and some people say it looks like a toilet bowl. It's also hard to tell that a puck is supposed to be in the middle.
This jersey would move up quite a few spots if the shoulder logo was moved to the front and the shoulder yoke outline was taken away.
It's great that Buffalo went back to a design inspired by the original uniforms, but it did something wrong.
The logo is great, but the blue is too dark, the number on the chest isn't needed and the stripes on the elbows, waist and socks are off.
I say get rid of the number on the front, make the blue a few shades lighter (like Toronto or Vancouver's) and make the stripes like Phoenix's while switching where the yellow and blue are.
The logo is great, the colors are nice and the geographical flags as shoulder patches are genius; however, the piping of this jersey is absolutely ridiculous.
The piping and template makes what would otherwise be a great NHL jersey look like something from the minor leagues or overseas.
The colors are nice and it's a clean design, but this jersey looks like a complete mashup of the Red Wings' and Maple Leafs' sweaters with a cartoonish logo.
This jersey would be a lot higher in the list if only this type of design wasn't an exact mix of two other teams.
The Jets have a terrific logo and one of the move innovative but not annoying designs in hockey. This is a good, clean look that feels like it should be a little higher, but the two-tone blue color scheme is overused.
This is a very good uniform, and the red pants look great with it.
The Jackets could afford to add a red, white and blue waist stripe and make the socks look less like Chicago's, but overall, this jersey is decent.
The Kings' white and purple jerseys before these were some of the best in the league, and while these aren't spectacular, it's a good, solid look.
The logo is a little strange and the pants would look better without the stripes down the sides, but this is a good look that's not too flashy but still pleasant.
The Coyotes have a great two-color look that is clean, original and unique. The logo isn't bad and the stripes are a new, unique pattern that looks great with the dark red and white color scheme.
While Phoenix's old uniforms were pretty cool, these are some of the better sweaters in the NHL today.
The Islanders brought back this classic look a couple of years ago, and it is one of the better road uniforms in hockey.
It would look a little better with a logo that separated the N and Y and with the four lines signifying four championships on the shoulder, but it's a great, clean look, and the Islanders made a great choice by going back to it.
San Jose has a great color scheme and some of the most unique uniforms in sports, but it finds a way to give it a simple and traditional look.
This jersey may look a little better with the logo used on the third jersey or with the former logo and more silver instead of orange, but it's still a great look that's unique and original.
The Oilers' jerseys have a very classic look to them, reminiscent of the Gretzky era. The logo is one of the best ones in hockey, and the vivid colors go great with the vintage-style template.
The blue and white color scheme is great, as well as the shoulder patch, but this template and logo look so much better on the blue version.
It's a great look, but nothing stands out about it. The logo and stripes aren't as good as they could be, looking back at Maple Leafs history, but it's a solid, clean look nonetheless.
The Bruins uniforms look great, but the black ones are better than the white ones.
I may get slammed for putting these so low, and they are great in terms of originality and have a throwback feel, but they don't seem as flashy as their black counterparts.
The Bruins have had great jerseys throughout history, and this is a very good one as well; there are just better white jerseys in the NHL today.
Minnesota has to have one of the most creative and best looking logos in the history of sports, and it is on display in this terrific jersey.
Not only does the combination of green, red and cream look great on a hockey jersey, the logo is just about perfect in every way.
The only reason these aren't in the top five is because the square shoulder patch really brings down the look of this jersey when watching on television. These looked so much better with the red circle shoulder patch that said "Wild" instead.
I know I'm going to hear it for putting these this low, but something about this jersey looks a little too busy to me.
It's an amazing look and color scheme, but the shoulder yoke, which doesn't match the home jersey, doesn't really need to be there; it seems as if the jersey has too many different stripes.
These jerseys have a very retro feel to them as well as a color scheme unique to any team in the NHL. The Flyers haven't had to change much about their design over time and have kept the same logo since they joined the NHL in 1967. That says something.
The Canadiens have always kept a historic color scheme of red, white and blue, and these jerseys are much cleaner and nicer than their home counterparts.
The logo is a little boring, but it is classic and simple, showing the history of hockey's most story franchise.
The template is unique to the Canadiens, and the pants are the perfect shade of blue to complement the mostly red-based jersey.
Vancouver's white jerseys are head and shoulders better than their blue counterparts, as it uses a lot of green and is very light with the blue.
These jerseys look as if the Canucks' primary jersey color was green, and it looks better that way. These are some of the nicest jerseys around, and they successfully reflect the green forests and blue water that surrounds the city of Vancouver.
There is little, if anything, wrong with this jersey. It's the perfect mix of black and red that has withstood the test of time, as the Devils were the only non-Original Six team to keep the same exact jersey template after the NHL switched to Reebok.
The logo is very creative, as it is a mix of a N and J for New Jersey, but also adds horns and a tail to represent the team's mascot: a devil.
These colors work perfectly with the template to create easily one of the best looks in sports.
Simple, iconic and traditional.
The Red Wings use a mix of red and white with a simple template and slap on possibly the best logo in sports history to create one of the greatest uniforms in sports. There is basically nothing wrong with this jersey, and everyone tends to agree; the Red Wings have not altered anything about their design since 1983.
This is the greatest uniform in all of sports. Period.
Everyone seems to praise the red Blackhawks jersey, but it is the white one that is truly the best. The red jersey clashes too much with the different colors used throughout the logos and shoulder patches, while this one provides an equal mix of many different colors, including red, black, yellow, green and gold.
The logo is very iconic and looks terrific with the template and colors of this jersey, as it does not clash with any colors.
The Blackhawks are the only team in sports that have found a way to use a wide variety of colors on a jersey and not make it look annoying or obnoxious; this is the only jersey I have ever seen that is successful in doing so.
