Illitch wanted to but the league would not net the Wings do it not even a third jersey, if you notice all the original six teams have not changed with the times but adopted alittle of the old with the new

I think the Wings should take down Yzerman's rafter banner and replace it with Lebda's banner.

New name: The Fighting Hamsters!

New colours: Puce and chartreuse

Personally, I think the whole team name needs an overhaul. Maybe something more in the vein of wildlife. Detroit Sea Otters? Detroit Walruses? Aquatic wildlife is all the rage these days in the NHL.

If it's Octopi, wouldn't it be Walri?

Go Detroit Fighting Squid!

This is probably the most sane thing I have ever read.

After all this time, I think the Wings really need to get with the times and update their look.

Perhaps they could add something with black in it for the intimidation factor.

Red is fine and they could keep it as an accent color, but it's gotten old.

I think a black home jersey, change the logo, and maybe a red third jersey just for throwback's sake would be best.

Lose the outdated look and get with the times.

For too long, they've looked like a team from the 1950's.

Old-time used to look good, but this is the 21st century.

Or, they could add a black and silver third jersey to help with merchandise sales.

Long overdue for this, if you ask me.

So, what do you think?

its not the sweaters that need changing....its whats under them! lets give our top scoring lines some nice big ****. that way, when they have a scoring opprotunity, one of them can just flash the opposing goalie, thus distracting him enough to let the puck go by...

i don't care what the date is, i think there actually is merit behind the idea. obviously the logo doesn't change, and the general color scheme stays, but i definitely think they could do some tweaking to the jerseys.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

LOL.

I wouldn't mind a nice 3rd jersey in all honesty.

I love the "OMG That's blasphemy" responses to an April Fool's posts though.

Would have been a decent April fools joke if it tried to fool us into thinking the jerseys changed.

I agree. If it had been set up as a post saying that the jerseys HAD been changed it would have been much better. When I read this, I figured out it was a joke. Good try though.
