It's about time management addressed the team's jersey problem.
Our red jerseys are based on the St. Paul Athletic Club's 1915 jerseys. Heck I wouldn't be surprised if that was an entirely novel design at the time:



Our red jerseys are paying homage to those jerseys (and more importantly the history of professional and amateur hockey in St. Paul), for those who don't know. Most teams seem to have copied that design or theirs came after ours came out (Chicago, Blues, Columbus, Pens, etc.)
