The beginning of the new NHL season is only days away, and on Saturday we will finally see our favorite players trade in their KHL jerseys, practice get-ups and street clothes for the uniforms they were born to wear.
As the teams take to the ice, the look for some squads might be prettier than it is for others.
A team's uniform is its identity. It can be an homage to a classic look and storied teams, a cutting-edge and untested color scheme, or a look that the franchise has stuck with for decades. Some teams simply have great looks.
Other teams could use a little adjustment. In this slideshow, we'll look at each jersey in use for the 2013 season and determine whether it is good-to-go—or needs to go. And if it needs to go, we'll consider some alternatives.
