Much better looking, IMO.

Without the red strokes I liked the old ones better but they are both okay.

I like the changes, but I'm generally a fan of minimalistic designs too, so when noise is removed I typically tend to favor it.  Also I'm a sucker for laces (real ones).

Better.  Now they just need new home ones- the less elfin, the better.

 

The red and green in the logo is fine, but there needs to be less red in the rest of the uni or the whole thing looks like their helmets should have pointy ears and their skates should have curly toes.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

First new jersery design unveiled this offseason that I actually don't mind.

Now they need to update their home unis to match.

And, the great reveal was done at the Minnesota State Fair...sweet!

They're whining about the money they're losing, but they're not afraid to waste "production value" money on this video.

The red or green? 

If I were in charge, I would make a green and white jersey that's like a home version of the new road jerseys, then ditch both the current "Christmas" home jerseys and the third jerseys too.

But, that's just my opinion.

I'm kind of tired of the laces fad. Only the Rangers should have laces.

I like them

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Just me but laces added to any hockey jersey just instantly makes it better. I like this a bit better but the shoulders look too square.

I think the new jerseys should have the "red"-ish color (their current) for their C and A patches instead of the dark color.

Is it just me or do all of these "new" sweaters just look the same?  It's like teams that want to sell more merch just make an extremely stripped-down version of their old design to lower the material and production costs and... oh wait...

This is the first new uni of the summer that I like.  It's similar to the old one, but much cleaner.  Still has an appropriate amount of stripes, especially at the waist.  Nicely done, Wild.

I like the "newer" new ones rather than the new Rbk edge uniforms introduced in 2007, where nearly half the teams had that awful piping on theirs.

Improvement, yet somehow still evil. Oh, wait, no, that's just The Parise Effect.

 

For the record, I really, really like their green special jerseys. Why not just make this their road and the green one their home? That'd be cool.

Yes.
