This installment of the Worst to First Jerseys features the Winnipeg Jets, and much thanks to Jets Nation for letting me guest post on their blog. On my own blog, I talk about about graphic design in hockey and I'll be doing the jerseys for the rest of the league over time, so come by Hockey By Design to check it out.
By John van der Woude
The big question for the Jets is which jerseys should be included? Did I ignore the jerseys of the Jets incarnation that moved to Phoenix to become the Coyotes? Or, do I include the jerseys of the Atlanta Thrashers, the same organization that now resides in Winnipeg? Or, do I decide to get really lazy, ignore both and make this the easiest post to write ever, with only their current jersey? Or do I throw everything into the mix since I'll never get the chance to tear apart some awful Thrashers jerseys?

Two KHL games for you today. First we have the Czech team Lev facing their Slovakian rivals Slovan, and then Latvian Dinamo Riga playing their Belarusian rivals Dinamo Minsk. Two great games, and absolutely rabid fans. Great seeing packed barns for a hockey game. I almost forgot what it looked like.

Lots of interesting stuff across the Nation websites this week, including an exclusive interview with an NHL head coach, 2013 Draft talk, a look at how goalies perform as they age, and obligatory stuff on the NHL lockout. Read more, after the jump!

Any league that has the sense not to lock themselves out through Christmas and any team that has the sense to mysteriously drive off Theo Peckham gets our business. Where do you go when there is nothing to do and you are still riding high on having survived a Raiders game?
It's time to go to an ECHL game.

I hope you watch all these games, but for the love of all that is hockey, at very least watch the Dynamo Moscow vs. Red Army (CSKA Moscow) game.
