Home Sweater Rank

Jace Mallory of the Sporting News ranks the home sweaters for all of the NHL teams.

The Red Wings come in 3rd.

The Detroit Red Wings' uniforms have always been one of the best in the league and it helps that the team is successful, historically, without deviating from their on-ice look. For Original Six teams, tradition plays a major role in their jerseys - and this one really hasn't changed since 1926.

the other teams, the NYR take the 1st spot...

Obviously subjective, but I was surprised to see who’s #4.

Awful, Boss.  I would have ranked MTL at #1 or #2.

Toronto and Montreal are WAY too low and Minnesota is far too high.

Obviously subjective, but I was surprised to see who’s #4.

I would’ve assumed it’s am minority opinion, but I actually like their duds. That said, number four? Dunno about that…

Pittsburgh’s ugly uniforms should be near the bottom. I agree on the Slackhawks being up there. I would rank the Slackhawks at 1, Red Wings 2, Maple Leafs 3, and Montreal 4th. cool smile

All these lists really begin at the #7 position, following The Original Six.

Nah I find NYR and BOS’s to be fairly overrated.  But I agree that 4 of the Original Six will forever be the Top 4.

Really?  #5?  No, just… no.

I’ll agree that the Rangers’ sweaters are kind of classic, but #1? Think about the design process for those (circa 1925):
Designer: What are the team colors?
Rangers Guy: Red and blue.
Designer: What’s the team called?
Rangers Guy: Rangers.
Designer: How about “Rangers” in red on a blue sweater?
Rangers Guy: Brilliant!

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
