No NHL Week: Minor-League Jerseys

This was supposed to be the opening week of a new National Hockey League season, but because that ass-clown Gary Bettman is still inexplicably the NHL commissioner, the owners have decided that locking out the players was a better idea than playing on while negotiations continue. The players, of course, will continue to pay the rent by heading off to the increasingly competitive and lucrative European leagues. The owners will sit in their empty buildings and think they're winning. We fans can just wipe our butts with the opening night NHL tickets we bought.

So this week we'll look for alternative hockey entertainment, starting with a trip to the minors for our affiliated American Hockey League teams. The best AHL jerseys are those that work equally well when worn in the parent club's building (for added street cred) and vice versa. You want to be able to tell the squad's NHL affiliate just by looking at them. So the same (or a very similar) colour scheme and a logo that refers to the parent squad.

The Worcester Sharks, Providence Bruins and Texas Stars, frankly, aren't even trying. Points are not awarded for a near or exact copy of the parent club's logo, name, and colours. Some better variants shown above: Albany Devils. Binghamton Senators. Oklahoma City Barons. Toronto Marlies.
