The wings should make the winter classic sweaters the thirds... I know fans love twhen teams where the alternates but I also know detroits commitment to standard and tradition. what do you think? Is there a way we can help make this happen? discuss...

They've really grown on me since we first saw them at the beginning of the season. If Hossa re-signs, I think I'm going to pick one up.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Any kind of alternate would be cool, I like the winter classics and they make the most sense because we alrady have them but Ive always said we should have a black alternate like carolina or just take the WC jersey and make them black with red instead of white...

Nope, because, as you said, the Wings are all about tradition.

And I'm fine with that. They're practice jerseys.

I like the Winter Classic jersey, and I'm sure it will be considered as their official third jersey replacing the old red, white, and black jersey. I'd like it better they dropped the shoulder patches. It's very clean and simple.

I've also considered getting a Hossa Winter Classic and may still even if he doesn't sign.

The black jerseys used to be worn by the "Black Aces", reserve players who practice with the team and are ready to step in if a regular gets injured.

Hey now, I've had my black practice jersey for a while now and I think it would be awesome to at least try out.

I'm a big fan of the black practice jerseys, but there are more than enough black in-game jerseys.

Lets go with a 3rd jersey dedicated to the Octopus!

Primary color purple with the octopus on the front.

I'm all for it being a 3rd jersey. Fairly simple but it still stands out. Problem is though I think pretty much all 3rd jerseys in the league right now aren't white. Don't know if that makes much of a difference/not.

I like it as a third jersey, though I'd like to keep it to O6 opponents. However, given that we don't see Toronto, NY, Boston and Montreal that much...
