Before we look ahead to the new season, it's worth taking a brief look back. Over the past several months, Icethetics has been conducting a series of polls asking readers to rate all of the 90 uniforms worn in the NHL during the 2010-11 season. Now here they are, in the order you chose, from best to worst:
NHL Uniform Ranking 2010-11
When I posted this today I forgot to mention the big number — how many votes there were. And actually, it's kind of impressive. In all, there were 483,790 votes cast amongst the 90 uniforms seen during the 2010-11 NHL season. That's about 5,375 votes per uniform.
The results of each poll were used to determine a numerical rating between 1 and 10. The highest-rated jersey (Oilers home) received an 8.642 while the lowest (Thrashers alternate) received a 2.003 rating. I can publish all of the individal ratings if there's an interest, but I figured the visual ranking would be more interesting. And for the record, there were no ties. Every jersey seen above actually rated higher than the one after it.
PollDaddy.com was used to conduct all 90 polls and I employed a feature that restricted voters (by IP address) to casting no more than one vote per day while each poll was open (two weeks for each poll) to avoid ballot-stuffing. It was the largest series of polls Icethetics has ever run.
