Forecast: Ice Age

Back in the '90s, hockey jerseys took on something of a life of their own, as their bright colours and generous cuts made them popular with African-American kids (a demographic almost completely unrepresented among NHL players). Progress has been mixed since those days—Jarome Iginla has emerged as an elite player, but last year's Reebok redesign of the jerseys has made them generally less attractive and comfortable. Although nobody here is a Kings fan, we think Los Angeles is the league's best-dressed team. The crown logo is iconic, the city name across the bottom is unique, and the regal colour scheme is pretty damn sharp. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)
