They look a little less like Christmas decorations now, but still look a lot like Christmas decorations.  Until the Parise/Suter thing, I always had an affinity for the Wild.  Mostly because I think Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are all alike in a lot of ways (mid-western, northern, all that).  But having said that, I always hated their color scheme.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

An improvement for sure. I especially like the newly added laces as well as the colour separation between the jersey and pants.

They changed a few colors and a font. Big deal. They will still suck, play 6 goalies this year and be hard to watch.

 I used to like the idea of the Wild's success, but they play a too boring style for that.

Interesting read from Icethetics regarding the design process for the new sweater. Never knew that the process was so involved, and that the league had requirements regarding timeframe from start to finish. Worth a read, for sure.

Good read, Jedi.
 

They forgot to mention that the font has to be small enough to fit Niederrieter on the back. :P


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$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)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

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 agree.  I think all jerseys should have laces.  As for the "new" jerserys, they're barely changed.  The stripes on the bottom and less dark green on the sleeves, likely cause the old white jerseys had too much dark on them and that's just obnoxious to do in a white design.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.
