Tier Five: Could Be MUCH Better

Calgary Flames

Aside from being somewhat boring, the striping is obnoxiously placed. Despite being a part of the Flames’ jersey history, it just doesn’t work.

If you’re doing a black Flames jersey, leave it at the “Blasty” horse head jerseys they’re wearing as an alternate.

Columbus Blue Jackets

Too. Many. Blues.

The addition of royal blue to the arms of a black jersey goes against the rest of the blue in the logo. The stars on the arm also make it seem like we’re looking at a 2006 “Team World” all-star jersey.

Vegas Golden Knights

The fonts are all over the place despite being an homage to Vegas hotels. The weirdest part about it, however, is that the lettering glows in the dark.

Hockey isn’t played in the dark, so what’s the point?

Detroit Red Wings

Another year, another disappointing Red Wings alternate. They have a limited jersey history, yes, but they’re now 0 for 2 on Reverse Retro contributions.

There’s just nothing going on here that would place it higher.

St. Louis Blues

Woah, that’s a lot of yellow.

The yellow on the Blues’ jerseys is usually an accent, not a feature. This is just hard to look at and will be difficult to watch throughout the year.

Toronto Maple Leafs

This almost got its own tier of “Is this not the regular jersey?” but didn’t because the shoulder pads went unnoticed at the start. That said, it is quite literally their home blue jersey with white shoulder pads.

It feels like nearly no effort was put in.
