SI Ranks Third Jerseys

Coming on the heels of Icethetics' third jersey rankings, Sports Illustrated has released a ranking of their own. I respect it but for the most part I find it simply makes a lot of excuses for putting "classic" jerseys at the top of the list and becomes very whiny when talking about the more unique designs.

Just like me, SI puts the Penguins at the top of the list and the Stars at the very bottom. To see their complete rankings and read their mostly snide and cynical reviews, click here. Below is the list of their picks.

  1. Pittsburgh Penguins
  2. St. Louis Blues
  3. Philadelphia Flyers
  4. Montreal Canadiens (Centennial, not third)
  5. Chicago Blackhawks
  6. Edmonton Oilers
  7. Buffalo Sabres
  8. Toronto Maple Leafs
  9. San Jose Sharks
  10. Boston Bruins
  11. Phoenix Coyotes
  12. Carolina Hurricanes
  13. Vancouver Canucks
  14. Tampa Bay Lightning
  15. New York Islanders
  16. Los Angeles Kings
  17. Ottawa Senators
  18. Atlanta Thrashers
  19. Dallas Stars

Thanks to Spencer for pointing this out.

By the way, I plan to set up a rating system this weekend so you guys can weigh in on the new sweaters.
