Best and worst uniform designs for 2011-2012

I figure it's about time I finally make a thread, huh? :P

In your opinion, what are the three or so best and worst uniform designs that we'll see on the ice this year? Not necessarily the best new designs, but designs overall?

For me, the best:

WQmBos.jpg Montreal - Not just me being a homer. :P Still the best. Timeless classic.

VMg3os.jpg Detroit - Second best design, IMO. Another generationally transcendent design that should never change one iota.

T0OO1s.jpg New York Islanders - I don't know why, but I've always liked this one. I think it doesn't get the notability it deserves because of how awful the team's been for the last 25 years.

And the worst:

6O7IGs.jpg Nashville - I'm in the minority from what I read, but I think this monstrosity is disgusting. There's a reason nobody uses yellow anymore: it's ugly! :P

yS5Zds.jpg Ottawa - The sad part is that their old uniforms from the 90s were awesome, apart from the black. This incarnation is painful. From the bad logo redesign to the nasty wordmark third sweater that looks like a practice jersey. Ew.

llxfcs.jpg Dallas - A basketball jersey with arms. And not a particularly pleasingly designed basketball jersey at that.

http://www.nhluniforms.com/ is a good place to get example graphics, but don't just steal bandwidth from them by directly linking to uniform images. Upload them to somewhere like http://imgur.com/ first.

How about you guys, girls, and mods?

Montreals always had the best, Detroit and the Rangers have nice ones. The Alternate for teh rangers is nice.

The old ducks were nice (the white one), and I like Ottawas current third, as well as nashvilles new design

LA's new one is good, as is Dallas's in my opinion I kinda like the simplicity. Minnesotas alternate are good too

I dislike Philly's, San Jose's teal, Florida, Columbus

I don't see anything visually appealing about the red wings jersey at all, though, I'll agree that its obviously historic, classic etc. I do love the habs jersey, homie or not , as you say :P. Nashville....well, I can see how their jersey may be taken as crude looking but ,SINCE there are no other yellow jersey mustard jerseys in the league, I think its a good standout jersey that is nice to see once in a while, thats just me though. I like the Islanders jersey myself, it's definitely the dark blue and orange colors that make it great. I won't disagree on the Dallas stars uniform, it's a little boring but I think it can be taken as serious and business like as well, to the point and simple with a purpose. As for other jerseys, I really dig the Columbus jerseys even though sometimes they appear kind of childish for some reason to me (the jerseys of the blue jackets). Im not a canucks fan at all, but they do have nice home uniforms.

I've always liked the wings logo(one of the nicest/clever logo's ever), but never been big on the one color uni, like the wings or leafs. Makes me the think of pj's. I like it when the shorts are different from the sweater/jersey, like the Habs or Rangers. Habs, the shorts are blue and the sweater is red, Rangers are opposite, Blue sweater, read shorts. Or like how the hawks are, black shorts, red or white sweater.

Any jersey with that mustard type color like the preds is horrible imo.

I'm saving my judgement on the new jets logo until I see it on a jersey. Who knows, I may like it once I see it all together.

That's why I like Toronto's third, White/Blue/White is such a nice combi

I have a feeling I might be in the minority here, but does anybody else really like the Sens' third jersey?

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/918649-ottawa-senators-what-is-propelling-them-on-this-winning-streak

I like it, it's a throw back to the original Sens team. I like it.

One uni I don't like, is the preds jersey... I hate that yellow. Haven't they learned from other teams?

A few other teams toyed with that color and the complaints were all the same.

The away jersey is great, I liked the home but seeing it on ice with that blue is just ugly
