The NHL's Top Jerseys in 2008: Nos. 30-26

30) EDMONTON OILERS

The Good: I'm a fan of getting rid of the stripes at the base of the uni due to the "bibbing" effect created by a rounded ends.

The Bad: 99 percent of this uniform. Please raise your hand if it makes sense to have the sleeve stripes stop half way. Crickets.

29) VANCOUVER CANUCKS

The Good: I am all for the change in color scheme to green and blue—I think it has the potential to be the best color combination in the NHL if done right.

The Bad: In case you were confused, let's add VANCOUVER over a logo that already looks like it wishes it was on another jersey. Please replace it with the stick-in-rink logo or the Johnny Canuck logo.

28) NEW YORK ISLANDERS

The Good: I'm all for change and I thought the old unis were a bit dated.

The Bad: Let's take yet another traditional team and jersey and slaughter it. Sound good? Ironic that somehow this uniform set reminds us of maybe a sailor. Remember the fisherman logo?

27) TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS

The Good: Not too many alterations to the uniform. No piping is a good think.

The Bad: NO CHARACTER! They got rid of the bottom stripes and left them bluer than the Blue Man Group. Bland, just like the team.

26) CALGARY FLAMES

The Good: I have always loved the "C" logo and the colors. Plus, the transition to a more European look is a welcome change.

The Bad: I have to say, I used to be a fan of the Flames uniforms before this season. The addition of the clashing-color patches on the shoulders make me wonder how many colors are on the jersey. And what's with the weird striping continuing onto the pants?
