It's no surprise that a franchise named after a Disney comedy would have such funny, cartoonish uniforms. The third jerseys, with a duck bursting through the ice, were just plain awful.

New York Islanders (1995-97)
When the team rebranded and unveiled a new logo, fans noticed that the stick-wielding fisherman bore an uncanny resemblance to the mascot of Gorton's fish sticks. That earned the Islanders the nickname Fish Sticks for years after.

Montreal Canadiens (2009)
These prison-striped jerseys were an homage to the 1912-13 Canadiens. Montreal wore them once in 2009. That was more than enough.

Dallas Stars (2003-06)
The constellation in the shape of a bull's head was meant to blend stars with Texas's iconic longhorn symbol. Instead it ended up looking like an evil skeleton.

Vancouver Canucks (1978-85)
The huge V-striped jerseys achieved the difficult combination of being both very plain and very ugly.

Phoenix Coyotes (1998-2003)
The team's abstract hockey-playing Coyote logo was bad enough. But Phoenix's third jerseys, which were green with trim that was supposed to evoke the desert, were even worse.

Edmonton Oilers (2001-07)
Nothing says "Oilers" quite like what appears to be a giant gear streaking through outer space. With a teardrop on it. Well, maybe the teardrop was appropriate: Edmonton lost the Stanley Cup finals in 2006, the next-to-last season these third jerseys were worn.

Nashville Predators (2001-07)
Unlike the Ducks, the Predators were not run by Disney. But their saber-toothed tiger logo still looks as if it came from a cartoon. Even worse, though, is the color: a dull yellow the same hue as Dijon mustard.

Tampa Bay Lightning (1996-99)
These third jerseys were a little busy. They included streaking rain in two colors, lightning bolts on the sleeves, black water waves along the trim, and three different fonts.

Ottawa Senators (2008-11)
Ever forget to do your homework and have to throw something down real quick when it's time to turn in your work? Looks like that happened here. And is Sens even a word?
