Do Teams Need More Colourful Jerseys?

Jibblescripts, a blog devoted to Avalanche news, has a post from a few days ago calling on NHL teams to move away from the black jerseys and infuse some style and colour into their sweaters.

In all the leaked reports that seem to be coming out or Franchises this season, one disturbing trend that seems to be gaining steam is the black third jersey. According to the one-stop source for all your Hockey Aesthetics, Icethetics (a really fun blog FYI), has 7 teams that are looking at having black 3rd jerseys (Bruins, Kings, Hurricanes, Sharks, Blackhawks, Senators, and Coyotes). Add to that the teams that already normally have black jerseys (Flyers, Pens, Stars, Ducks, Lightning, and yes the kings and Bruins) means that there are a grand total of 12 teams that will have some form of a black jersey. Way to break the mold guys.

I completely agree. The sweaters and third-jerseys have tended towards the drab the last few years, with little in the way of imagination. I am not advocating any radical, Euro-style, changes but maybe a return to the old days of bright primary colours. Your thoughts in the comments.

The Jets are scheduled to return to the ice for practice tomorrow after taking today off.

The Moose will play the first ever school day game. @ICdave will join @danielthefink on the broadcast.
