All around SB Nation’s hockey network, we’ve been reflecting on some hideous, terrifying, and unfortunate jerseys. There are some terrifying, horrifying sights to behold out there - Mooterus, mustard yellow Preds jerseys, whatever the Thrashers tried to do... but we think the Blues have the winner.
You know it. You love it. You hate it.
The clowns - most specifically the road blues (now home blues).
They’re some of the most divisive jerseys that the Blues have ever worn. Either you have a close attachment to them from your childhood and the great players who wore them, like Brett Hull, Al MacInnis, and Chris Pronger.
Or you view them as just God-awful, non traditional, eyeball searing relics of a decade of hockey jerseys that gave the NHL some of the worst abominations known to man, like the Islanders fisherman jersey or the Wild Wing blasting through the ice mess.
But come on, man.
Just take it all in.
Maybe this is a little garish.
The 90s were a special decade where everything was just a little over the top. Do these things make your 4K TVs sad? Yeah.
Are they ugly? Sure, they’re hideous. But they’re our hideous jerseys, and sometimes it’s just fun to be tacky. ‘Tis the season.
