I signed up to volunteer at the Alumni game. Received an email they'd let me know. Now that there's two, I stand a good chance.

They need to role a 4 man line with the Russians and have a little tribute to Vlad. Maybe Anastasia can dress out? =)

Even though im not going to see these I'm still shaking thinking about all of the detroit alum together again on the ice.

I am ALL ABOUT getting the Grind Line together and even more about the Russian Five, though the latter I'm sure would be a lot more difficult to pull off. But regarding that, I think they will have some sort of Vladdy tribute either way, since he is still active in the area and what not. It's gonna be awesome!!!!

As far as jerseys go, I'm pretty certain that the jerseys in the pictures will not be the ones the teams wear, but I could be wrong. The teams wear the same jerseys for the actual Winter Classic game and the Alumni Game, correct? Though this year's events I also assume are a bit unprecedented for the event, considering there are NHL/Alumni/NCAA/OHL/AHL games going on at two different venues.

I think that for jerseys, the NHL likes to have a separate event to unveil them and then shortly after, release them to be purchased by the public, usually a few months before the Winter Classic, so that people will anticipate, purchases, continue to purchase, etc.

Like Ram said, the unveiling of the jerseys will be an event onto itself. I'd imagine it'll be nearly Fall before we see them.

I haven't been following the WC ticket dilemma that much, but I was wondering if just anyone can buy tickets for the alum. games and the festivities downtown.
