The worst breezers in the NHL are the teams that go with the plain black style. The Flyers, Bruins, Avalanche, Sharks, Kings, Stars, and Devils do nothing.
The Devils went from those sick green with red striped pants to plain black pants.
Terrible move. The only way teams can get away with the solid colored pants is if the teams sweaters are elaborate like the Caps and the Predators.
If you have more simple jerseys like the Flyers or Devils throw a stripe and a logo on there.
Just like Detroit. Plain, simple, classic.
I like how the teams that do the throwback unis bring back sick looking pants. Edmonton and the Isles went the Canadiens route with great success.
Calgary not only had the best deep red in sports but added the yellow stripes.
The Pens used to have the solid yellow line then went boring with the solid black and now have the gold Thomas Pink gold triangle cut.
This style is kind of cool and works with the All-Star unis from 2008.
Not like the plain stars and lines in the worst All-Star pants in 1983
The Tackla pants with the logos down the side are too Euro looking even though I wore a pair like this in pee-wee.
When you have boring black pants this is how you make shit work: The Tampa Bay Lightning put a bolt down the side.
When you have boring black pants this is how you mess everything up: The Dallas Stars spelled out the city down the side.
Before they tried to put stars down and that looked dopey.
The only team to pull off the stars was the Caps. Scotty still has a pair of the white Tackla Capitals breezers with the red and blue stars and 2 stripes that I wear when I suit up for roller hockey goalie. Awesome pants but you have to be an amazing hockey player to wear them and not have everyone in the rink take a run at you.
The only other guy that should be run as much as the kid in the white pants is the kid who won't zip up the insides of his Tackla pants. The extra un-zipped room is for players to pull the pants up over your skates. The zippers aren't there because you are such a dynamic skater that you need the extra room for your Kariya-like stride. Zip that shit up, loser.
Ottawa also gets away with the plain black pants with one white and one red stripe. Solid.
Kind of like Chicago which gets it done all over the board.
Some teams try to add the stripe at the end of the pants like Columbus and Carolina. I don't like these because they both look like the players are wearing shells and we can see their black pants sticking out underneath.
The only two times I think the bottom stripes work. One is the New York Rangers because they have thin white and blue stripes on red breezers along with vertical stripes.
The other time the bottom stripe worked was with the Jets. Again it worked because of the red color and white stripe didn't make it look like it was a shell.
The Blues have pretty cool futuristic RBK pants but the curved stripe. Not a bad look.
The other strong new pants are the Coyotes because of the color, stripes and it has the moon logo. Every team should have some logo on the pants.
The Wild keep it real.
The Panthers should switch to these pants full-time. Sick color, one white stripe and the sneaky sun logo on the bottom. SICK.
The best breezers in my opinion were the CCM Supras. Classic pants, simple with the two white lines down the side.
The Kings made the most of having black pants when Gretzky wore the Supras with the white stripes and the logo.
Better than the classic New Jersey green breezers were the old Whalers pants. The Whale had plain green with the logo and the white stripes on the side. If they went with a blue stripe in there it would have been game over.
A big step up from this shit:
But the best pants were Supras that the Nordiques wore.
The best pants going unless you can get away with wearing no pants at all.
