Memorable Hockey Players In Not-so Memorable Jerseys pt. 5: Present Day

Present Day  There are three players currently active in the NHL that I have a hard time watching wearing their new jerseys. One player I love and hope he wins a much deserved Stanley Cup to go with his Olympic Gold Medals, one player I hate; not because of him changing teams but because of the team he used to play for before this season, and one player who should have retired long ago like all of those former New York Rangers before him. Jarome Iginla In My Mind: Calgary Flames Remember When? Pittsburgh Penguins/Boston Bruins Iggy wasn’t going to win in Calgary but instead of pulling a “Sundin”, he actually let the Flames trade him in order to help the franchise rebuild. What guy, eh? Only thing was, he wanted to pick his destination and provided them with a list of teams. So the Flames traded Iginla to one of the teams on his list … the Boston Bruins! But wait, even though he said he allow a trade to Boston, he actually wanted …

Memorable Hockey Players In Not-so Memorable Jerseys pt. 2: NHL ’94 Era

There is one defining moment in each of our lives when it comes to our childhood memories and while it had already happened once when I was far too young to remember (or care), I couldn’t BELIEVE Wayne Gretzky could actually be traded! (Again). This is when it became a shocking reality to me that some of my favourite childhood heroes would not always be on the teams where I first learned about them in NHL ’94. NHL ’94 Era Wayne Gretzky In My Mind: Los Angeles Kings Remember When? St. Louis Blues “The Great One” (or as he is now known as, “The Drunk One”) jumped ship from the LA Kings to the St. Louis Blues in ’95-’96, to hook up with his old pal Brett Hull just in time for a first round playoff match-up with the Toronto Maple Leafs. (More foreshadowing)  It wasn’t bad enough that Gretzky single handedly ruined my childhood by preventing the Leafs from winning the Stanley Cup in ’92-’93 (because we all TOTALLY know they would have beaten …

Worst NHL Jerseys…Ever.

The NHL season is back in full swing…or skate…you know what I don’t need to impress you with my wordplay, much like these NHL teams didn’t need to impress you with a design that was even remotely good. So with that I give you the worst NHL jerseys of all time! Enjoy! Boston Bruins Known as the “winnie the pooh” jersey. This Jersey was somehow allowed to exist for 10 years from 1996-2006. Good Call. Dallas Stars Ah, the Dallas Stars (2003-2006) with their astronomically inspired jersey…which somehowcame out looking like a woman’s uterus. observe:   Vancouver Canucks This jersey is a little more forgivable because it was the late 70s and early 80s…but common buddy…common buddy…seriously? Terrible. New York Islanders The “High Liner” Fish Sticks jersey of the New York Islanders. They rocked these bad boys from 1995-1997 and when it was first unveiled I actually liked it. However I was 12, and this point just proves that kids are stupid and should have no say in anything ever. Anaheim Mighty Ducks The player …
