My Uncle found the deal of the year at a garage sale, an official Reebok blank home Wings jersey, fight strap and all, and gave it to me for a belated birthday or early Christmas present. I doesn't really matter what for, because it's a sweeeet gift!

I already have an Yzerman, Shanahan, and McCarty jersey, and have an idea who I want to get on this new one, but it's always a tough decision. For fun, I want to see who you all think I should get. I like all the Wings, but on the current roster, I'd get one of these 5, so there's no "Other" choice in the voting. After you vote though, feel free to post someone other than these 5.

I suggest you choose Zetterberg, as he is the only one of those five who is likely to be on the team in five years. Osgood, Maltby, Draper and Holmstrom will all likely be retired by then.

Eh Zetterberg jerseys are a dime a dozen. Even though those other guys will be retired in 5 years, they will still all be memorable iconic Red Wings figures for a long time to come. I like the idea of getting a jersey of one of our more unsung heroes.

Get a Homer. Lifelong Wing and underrepresented guy who's been huge for us.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

I'd go Zetterberg 40 - a future captain. Homer 96 a close second for all the dirty work he does.

Holmstrom ftw.

Or Franzen, even though it wasn't one of your options. Franzen's a beast.

Alternatively, I would go with Holmstrom. As someone stated above, he's a real unsung hero on this team. He's not the most skilled guy, but he's a pest and he draws the opposing team's attention very well.

If you are really set on one of the current players i would go for the one you see the least often. Homer would be a good choice for the unsung hero category, but then again i guess they all would :unsure:

I would say go with the player that you consider your favorite. That's usually the process I go with when buying a jersey. For me, I would go with a Zetterberg jersey. I still don't have number 40 in red or white. Right now I have a red Yzerman, a white Lidstrom, and a red Datsyuk. I would probably have more, but authentic jersey's aren't cheap, and I hate wearing replicas. My next jersey will be a white Zetterberg. I'm thinking sometime around Christmas time.

I'm biased towards goaltenders so I say Ozzie. He's done a ton for us, and even in the midst of poor seasons I still love that guy. :D

Well if you want someone who is going to be around for just a little while longer than most of your choices but is off the beaten path, why not go with Cleary? Think that might be my next one actually.
