I would like to see a third jersey like the winter classic one... they could even replace the "D" with the winged wheele... that would be pretty cool

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

This post seriously made me spit my drink out of my mouth. lol

Would have worked better to do a "Lidstrom out for the season" April Fools joke.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

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.

How bout the zebra mussels?

O.K. .....it's after 12:oo noon so Apr. Fools is officially over. However,there are some people seriously sucked in who DO want a change. When I look at a picture of Gordie Howe in the 50s & a present day one of Zett, the uniforms are basically the same & to me that says pride. I don't want the Wings to be look like the Thrashers or Penguins & come into town dressed like a semi-pro roller derby team!Let the original 6 stay the original 6.

When I saw the name of the thread I thought, "idiot". Then I saw who started it, and I smiled.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

wow what a bad idea, April fools or not, do you guys remember when the Pistons changed their whole logo colors and everything to that ugly ass teal black and yellow stuff from the Grant Hill era? with the flaming horse on the front lol ?? it would be almost as bad as that. Thank god they changed back to red white and blue the pistons have the best colors in the NBA with them.

Trying to make us into a Cali team?? Remember the LA Kings Yellow Purple jerseys haha wow, and how about the Lakers same thing ugly ass colors.

Red Wings 3rd Jersey :lol:

Has the mandatory gold piping that every other 3rd jersey has, has black for intimidation, the the camo pattern is for the troops.

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?

Good April fools joke
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du,
When I see you Red Wings,
I go out of my head,
I just can't get enough,
I just can't get enough,
All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du
