I think we can definitely expect a new Leafs jersey seeing as the 67 throwback is the current third which has been selling out everywhere. MLSE won't pass up the chance to market another jersey. Maybe an early 90s throwback.
This game is going to be great. The rivalry from the 50's lives on today more in the crowd than on the ice, but without a doubt the two team will know of the history between the two clubs and it should be a battle. I hope both clubs get a couple marquee signings/acquisitions in the offseason to make 24/7 a little better as well.
Jerseys should be classic blue from '54 and classic white from '54 for the Wings. I'm stoked. Hope it is at CoPa downtown though.
Awesome. Toronto-Detroit is a huge underrated rivalry with huge fanbases... Should be awesome. Now that we know Canadian teams can be involved, I'd love to see a Boston-Montreal in the future.
NHL made a smart move, they're going to be rolling in cash after this one. I expect the stadium to be sold out. Not a very long way to Detroit from Toronto, and Toronto fans would probably go to the end of the Earth to see the Leafs outside. Jerseys will be constantly sold out, if they continue 24/7 the ratings will be insane, etc.
