Suppossed Winter Classic Jerseys...

I think they're great. I'm not sure about the font. What don't you like about them?

I like the font. Its something the Wings used for a few years in the late 70's/early 80's, I believe. I thought using the old logo was the way to go and im glad they used that. The striping and lack of similarity of the striping to anything the Wings have ever wore is what gets me. I love the tradition of the Wings and their refusal to make throwaway design jerseys. (See Toronto's silver striping, Boston's bear head jersey, Ney Yorks lady liberty jersey) Montreal, Detroit, and Chicago have really resisted trends over the years and I think it gives the team heritage an extra element. Our last WC jersey, I thought, was a great homage to the teams beginnings (see Detroit Falcons/Cougars), was simple yet elegant, and gave us the Wings version of a 'D" logo. I think this jersey tries to be vintage, but looks too much like somethings ive seen NHL heritage sweaters make. Simplicity is key with original 6/Wings stuff...and theres just too much happening here.

I posted this in the 2014 WC thread but there wasn't a ton of discussion.

I'm not a huge fan, myself. The piping and such is okay, but the front feels crowded with so much going on and the name font doesn't fit with the number font whatsoever.

I don't necessarily like the logo & city combo on the front but the rest of the jersey looks great to me.

Agreed to both above...

The city/logo combo looks crowded, and doesn't look right.

The Leafs on the other hand looks great.
