4 NHL Uniforms Most in Need of a Makeover
The NHL has the best jerseys of any major North American sports league, but there are some teams with ugly uniforms that are in serious need of a makeover.
Having great jerseys with good colors, designs and logos not only makes the team look good, but fans will be more likely to buy these expensive sweaters if they are well done.
Let's look at four NHL teams who should consider re-doing their jerseys in the near future.
The Dallas Stars have some really boring uniforms.
Their home and away jerseys have "Dallas" written on the front with the team's logo around the shoulder area.
The font used for the word "Dallas" is boring, and there is also a lack of color in these jerseys.
What the Stars should do is make jerseys that are similar to what the team used from 1999 through the early 2000s, which interestingly enough, is when the franchise was actually a legitimate Stanley Cup contender.
The Anaheim Ducks have worn a lot of awesome jerseys, but some of their uniforms have also been hideous.
The team's current home and away jerseys not only use a terrible logo, but the tan and black colors used in each sweater look awful.
Those are terrible primary colors.
The best Ducks jerseys included the color green, and for the team to make a nice-looking sweater, they need to go back to using green as a primary jersey color.
I've never been a fan of the Carolina Hurricanes logo, and even though the red, white and black color scheme works, the team's logo hurts the quality of its jerseys.
Carolina's alternate logos are even worse.
To make the team's home and away jerseys much better, Carolina has to change its logo.
If they don't want to try that, the Hurricanes should put their logo on the shoulder and put text of "Carolina" or "Hurricanes" on the front of the sweater.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning changed uniforms and their primary logo going into last season, which was a mistake.
The new blue home uniforms are terrible, and switching the primary color of the home sweaters from black to blue was not a smart move.
The good news is that the team's new road jerseys are not as bad as the home sweaters.
Tampa Bay's primary logo used from 2007-08 through 2010-11 was fantastic, and since the new one is so bad, it lowers the quality of the new home jerseys.
The Lightning have used some really good jerseys in their history, but the team's current home and road uniforms might be the worst in team history.
