    In which I try not to talk obsessively about how awesome the Minnesota North Stars sweaters were in comparison to what they’ve got in Dallas with the Stars.

  4. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Columbus Blue Jackets

    Rick Nash

    They’ve always been in search of a look that makes sense, but the Columbus Blue Jackets may have found something old timey and wonderful. Hey, it’s better than a bug for a mascot at least.

  5. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Pittsburgh Penguins

    Mario Lemieux

    The Penguins have had their fair share of looks over the years, but it’s been one that’s lasted well over time and proved, once again, that sometimes a classic look is one that should be kept.

    A classic look of what a hockey sweater should look like is what the Montreal Canadiens offer to the world. They also show us how things can go horribly wrong.

  7. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Washington Capitals

    Aug 12, 2011, 10:45 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Lightning v Washington Capitals - Game Two

    The Caps best and worst shows us that you can improve on a classic look while trying to ignore that pesky experimental teal-blue and black phase.

    The Avalanche sweaters might be pretty good, but compared to what they were running with in their past it’s tough to keep up with a legendary look.

  9. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Winnipeg Jets

    Aug 11, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    Dustin Byfuglien, Nik Antropov

    You know that awkward moment when you’re doing a sweater history of a team that just relocated? This is it as there’s not a Jets sweater to be seen here.

  10. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Nashville Predators

    Carving out a great look on the ice when it comes to a sweater is something the Nashville Predators have had a very hard time with.

  11. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Toronto Maple Leafs

    Aug 11, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Wendel Clark

    The look of the Maple Leafs is a timeless one and one that you either love or hate.

  12. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: New York Rangers

    Aug 11, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

    Henrik Lundqvist

    The New York Rangers are another original six team that knows what works best: Not screwing with what’s worked so well for a virtual NHL eternity.

  13. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: San Jose Sharks

    Aug 11, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    Jeff Friesen

    There’s only one team in the NHL that can wear teal in the most manly way as possible. Start up the “Jaws” theme, it’s time for the San Jose Sharks.

  14. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Los Angeles Kings

    Aug 10, 2011, 10:19 PM EDT

    Anze Kopitar, Ray Emery

    It’s easy to pick out the best sweater from the Kings past, but is their worst just as easy to figure out? Why yes… It is.

  15. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Tampa Bay Lightning

    Aug 10, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Dave Andreychuk, Gary Bettman

    Always seeking an identity, the Tampa Bay Lightning are still hoping they can find one in their sweaters.

  16. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Edmonton Oilers

    Aug 10, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Wayne Gretzky, Glenn Anderson

    The Oilers are another team that’s going back to a classic look after getting lost in their own world of trying to do things different and make a few extra bucks.

  17. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Ottawa Senators

    Oh, Ottawa. You started off so well but you’re lost in a cycle of looking terrible. Looks like the Senators are taking that whole resembling government thing a bit too much to heart.

  18. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Detroit Red Wings

    Aug 10, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Nicklas Lidstrom

    Messing with a classic look is something the Red Wings can never be accused of doing. Ever.

  19. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Philadelphia Flyers

    Aug 10, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Bobby Clarke

    There’s not a look in the NHL fans can identify with better than that of the Philadelphia Flyers.

  20. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Phoenix Coyotes

    Aug 9, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Shane Doan

    Say what you will about the Coyotes dealings off the ice, they’ve always been… Something to look at on the ice.

  21. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Carolina Hurricanes

    Aug 9, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Ron Francis

    You came here looking for the Whalers, but please stick around for the Hurricanes. Just cue up the “Brass Bonanza” while reading this is all.

  22. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Minnesota Wild

    Aug 9, 2011, 4:15 PM EDT

    Mikko Koivu

    The Minnesota Wild don’t have much of a sweater history, but they’ve got one of the better looks in the NHL with only one sort of mistake along the way.

  23. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: New York Islanders

    Aug 9, 2011, 2:18 PM EDT

    Darius Kasparaitis, Travis Green

    The Islanders history of sweaters saw them start off so well before going off the rails in such incredible fashion they just had to start all over again. Repeatedly.

  24. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Buffalo Sabres

    Aug 9, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Alexander Mogilny

    Buffalo started off looking one way, wandered off trying to find themselves, only to figure out in the end that nothing beats the original, especially when you try to snazzy things up with pair of brand new looks that stunk.

  25. Best and worst sweaters of all-time: Chicago Blackhawks

    Aug 9, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Jonathan Toews

    An iconic look from an iconic original six team, there’s not a lot to dislike about the Chicago Blackhawks’ sweaters.
