NHL fans better hope there’s no snow in the forecast for Annapolis, Md., on March 3.
The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Washington Capitals will meet at the United States Naval Academy’s Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to square off in the latest NHL Stadium Series game. And considering the great setting and talent on both teams’ rosters, the outdoor game should make for a great viewing experience.
Except the Maple Leafs on Saturday revealed their jerseys for the game, and they’re almost entirely white. The uniforms certainly look cool, but they might not be all that practical, considering the game will be played on, you know, white ice.

So, what are the Leafs going for here?
Well, the uniforms honor the Royal Canadian Navy, whose motto is “Ready, Aye, Ready.” That slogan, along with the Leafs’ “Honor Pride Courage” motto,” will appear on the jerseys.
Admittedly, that’s a pretty cool touch. But we’re still not sold on all that white, given what just took place in the NHL All-Star Game.
However, the Leafs’ jerseys certainly are more appealing than the ones the Caps will be wearing. Take a look at these eyesores:
In retrospect, maybe Toronto’s sweaters aren’t so bad.
