Lots of nice jerseys on there. Great to see two Detroit teams on that list.

Blackhawks should have made the list.

I used to rank the Blues up there too, but they s*** all over themselves by adding vertical stripes on the jerseys.

I liked their "I Know What You Did Last Summer" logo better.

Glad the Red Wings are ranked high and rightfully so.

The Tigers home whites are the best uniforms in sports IMO. Simple, classic and spectacular all combined.

Good list of logos. Glad that the Tigers and Wings devotion to classic looks pay off (99% of the top logos are all classic).

What, this Nashville one wasn't good enough???

The Wings have absolutely the best looking uniform, hands down. That's why I fell in love with them as a kid.

It's a shame the League doesn't show the same control over jersey design that they show over team websites.

And the Blackhawks should totally be on the list. They definitely have the dirtiest sweaters in the league. MY only compaint about our unis are the red sleeves on the away sweaters.

Seconded.

I thought our red scheme is generally regarded as the best uniform in U.S. pro sports. Have I been living a lie?

Really surprised to not see the 'hawks on there. They usually get close to the top spot on these lists.

I believe the author of the article hosted an online chat shortly after the list was completed and the comments came from a lot of people asking why the Hawks were lower than normal and he expressed his opinion about them and that the color inside the feathers as well as the detailed stitching was overshadowed by the main red in the home jersey. I would try to find the exact quote, but he did mention that the white one is top notch.

Also, the chat expressed that the opinions and rankings were done soley by him without any outside help (if that means anything).

I'm a fan of the New Orleans Saints black with gold pants. Or just all black.
