Im on the side of white at home because I like seeing the different colours when you go to games. I live near Vancouver and every game it's the exact same, blue vs white. No variety at all.

Didn't Philly have an orange out? I always wondered why teams didn't use their color instead of white. I know it's a tradition thing, but it doesn't make sense now.

White jerseys are cool, but red are better.

Voted white at home. I agree red is more intimidating on the road

I understand the arguments from some of the folks that have been watching the wings for a long time. i always discuss this with my friend who has watched them his whole life and he feels the same way - whites at home. I, however feel the opposite: As in war you defend your colors at home. Since everyone has whites they can wear them when they come in to other's buildings. You shouldnt have the right to wear your team's colors in someone else's barn - its not your house , youre the guest and should honor that.

Wings should have a fluorescent green jersey they wear every game. Until the Ducks or Sharks copy them.

The league switched so teams can wear their third jerseys (almost always dark) at home without road teams having to pack both their light and dark uniforms.
I prefer white at home and dark on the road, like most of you guys. If I had season tickets, I wouldn't want to see red vs. white every game.

I like red at home. Your barn, your colors.
I love our sweaters for the fact that no matter which one they're wearing their arms(wings) are always red.

I like to pretend this was in Colorado.

The major melee ensued at the 18:22 mark, leading to the third fight. Shortly after a collision between Red Wing center Igor Larionov and Avalanche forward Peter Forsberg, Wings enforcer Darren McCarty seized the chance to avenge his Grind Line teammate by escaping a linesman's grasp and hitting Lemieux with a right hook from the side. McCarty laid many blows on Lemieux, who fell to the ice and covered his head (labeled "turtling" in hockey terminology); McCarty managed to land a few more punches, drag Lemieux to the boards, and knee him in the head before the two were separated by officials.

It was at this point that Colorado head coach Marc Crawford unleashed "The Foot."
