A Royal Concept

I have a couple of interesting Los Angeles Kings concept jerseys to share today. Remember these pre-Gretzky colors?



That is quite something. Want some more?



I'm sorry, but am I the only person who thinks that's more of a queen's crown than a king's? I think the current one is pretty sharp. But frankly, and I might get fileted for the very suggestion, but I always thought the king head from the mid-'90s third jersey served as a great and fierce representation of the Kings as a team. Because let's face it, without the purple, they've got nothing.



Just, instead of sticking it in the corner and having that weird swoosh thing come down around the shoulder, just make it the primary crest. Thoughts? Am I a crazy nut completely off his rocker?

Their new jerseys aren't bad either. I always liked the Gold-Purple as well. Hated the logo though.

Chris you rule about the comment for the crown.

I never thought of that, but yes it's a queen crown. On my old sweater, I always thought the logo was too small.

It's hot today in Canada. Not a good day.

You think it's hot in Canada? I think we hit about 93 today here in my part of Florida. That what I would call "not a good day." Anyway, thanks for the comments, everybody!

They should drop the black and white and just have silver and purple.

93, isn't that about 34 celsius or something? Is that about how hot it gets in Florida? It very commonly gets way higher than that in southeast BC. Anyway, did the kings actually wear that bottom one? I don't remember that.

The Kings did wear that jersey as an alternate on a few occasions during the Gretzky era.

And sadly, 93 isn't as hot as it gets. We often see days during the summer of 97 or more and that's before you factor in the humidity. Luckily, though, summer is winding down and this week is bringing lots of rain so it should be a little cooler. Probably 87 to 93.

Anyway enough about the weather from me. Thanks for the comments!
