I still think they should go with the reverse of our 3rds now but the Wild logo on the front. I would also like to see them add maybe a little wheat trim or red trim similar to the Hershey Bears white third jerseys that copied our thirds but have maroon and wheat trim. (Someone post a photo of those I can't seem to at this time.) I also don't think we can continue with three different types of uniform designs if we are going with a complete new look on the whites.

Thoughts on contrasting name plates on the home and away jerseys? Tan nameplates on the green jerseys and green nameplates on the white jerseys with a different color text in them. I like the way the Philadelphia "broad street bully-type" black nameplates make the jerseys pop, would this work on this MN set?

I'd buy a white version of our reds in a heartbeat.

If they're not going to go with an inverse of our Greens for the new away jerseys, I'd like to see them go with something like this from one of the Icethetics Concepts.



I think this one has been posted before, but having these as our new Homes and Aways and keeping our current 3rd as our alternate would be a pretty sweet deal. I've wanted a uniform set of Homes and Aways for awhile now and we can even make our Christmas-time Reds an alternate too.

No thanks. Don't like those at all.

I would be pretty okay with the "Iowa Wild" whites but now I'm a little worried if they go off the map.

I've said this before but anything that changes the color scheme of the actual, original, Wild logo isn't going to happen. Nor does to look good.

As far as what the Wild do go with, I'm pretty confident in their ability to put forth a quality sweater. Everything that they've come out with since their inception has been well received and spun a few teams following their cues shortly thereafter. It's just that with what they currently have in their quiver, it's a mish-mash of those sweaters with no relation to each other and the time period in which they were debuted.

That's why I wouldn't mind the Iowa/Houston whites. It's a more unified look with the current greens, which aren't far from the reds.

I'm having trouble remember the white jersey prototypes, but one of them had a big green stripe around the middle. Those would be pretty interesting. Like the old Detroit WC jersey in green and white and then throw the circle logo on top of it. Pretty solid look IMO.

Also would like them to make the green jerseys regular home jerseys and swap the MINNESOTA font for a logo of some kind. Then nix the reds. Keep the MINNESOTA jerseys as thirds.

I dont like the logo without the red like that. Too pale. The rest of it is good tho. Would not mind a green and wheat jersey with no red.

No offense, but those are bloody hideous.

They're not mine, so no offense taken

I'm just looking for something that can give us a matching set of home and away jerseys. I'm sure the organization will put out another great jersey, but I'm sick of seeing three completely different jerseys for this team.

We probably will get matching home and away.

They're going to just do white/red/green versions of our current home.

/myguess.

Not saying they should, but I think this would be a great phase 1 design if the team ever decided to blow it up and rebrand as the North Stars.

Phase 1: this jersey
Phase 2: add the 'N-Star' to the shoulder patch -- for the North Star State / Northland
Phase 3: alternate with the 'N-Star' as the primary
Phase 4: official name change, N-Star as primary
Phase 5: reintroduce the retro kelly greens



Realistically, I think they need to shelf the reds and use them only for one Christmas game each year. Try to make them even gaudier than they are right now. Elf shoulder patch. Hang stockings around the glass. Helmet antlers. Ugly Xmas sweater competition for the fans.

Current greens are great. But leave them as the alts. I don't approve of script logos as the primary. Bring back the old greens as the primary. Those could maybe use a little bit of cleaning up.

Completely redo the whites with a much cleaner look. I love the clean green and white only (Aeros) look. The trouble is that kind of lends itself towards a script logo. I still stand by the animal head as a quality logo that should go the distance.

We really need to move on from the North Star logo/colors. They belong in the past.

The problem with that is that there's something reminding us all the time, and not letting us move on like we want to.

I really hope they go with something that works with the greens, and we make the greens our home jerseys as well as whatever the new aways are.

No piping, please no piping. Aeroes away's are slick. I would love to see those. I would love for the Wild to get rid of the piping on the reds if they are gonna keep em. Personally I'd rather have green for the homes that coordinate with the aways. Just no piping. I hate busy uniforms.

Wheat, Green, White, Red, Burnt Orange. I don't care. Just clean and no piping. I am fully expecting the Wild to add piping to the new uniforms. I will be sad.
