As I do a little work at some other SBnation page that won't be named ( www.fiveforhowling.com ), I'm always looking for cool links regarding all things hockey. One of my favorite pages to look for updates on is http://www.icethetics.info/ . They have tons of jersey updates, even leaking possible jerseys before they're even announced.

Here are the concepts, and love 'em or hate 'em, we can all agree this a fun topic for debate with lots of people liking things this way or that.

Let the debate begin!
(But before you go nuts, maybe some smooth jazz will calm your nerves: )
