I'm pretty confident it will be somewhat similar to the 1937-38 white sweater. This of course is only based off of my observations of the previous Winter Classic sweaters, and not any inside knowledge. However based on said information I would be surprised if they did not use the old "wild" leaf, with all the piping.

The best way for the Leafs to make money is to promote the Maple Leaf brand, not some defunct green team that most Leaf fans don't even know about.

There will be a lot of new and casual fans who tune in just for that game - so the Leafs may as well show the world their true colours, instead of some colour that they will never wear again.

And not to be superstitious ... but the last time the Leafs wore the St. Pats jerseys, a relative of a St. Pats alumni died on the Leaf bench, just as they were being introduced.

70's Jersey is the best. I've never seen a bad winter classic jersey so there's no reason to worry.

Mid 70s for me. Those are beauties to see.

Either one of the 1927-30s jerseys are fine. The 70s jerseys are the ugliest jerseys this team has ever worn.

I agree. They are horrible.


A Toronto Arenas throwback would be OK IMO.

Ew... mid '70s jersey is the farthest thing from "classic".

I seriously hope they don't go for those...

If you look at all the jerseys used for the WC, they have gone as far back as the franchise's history would let them... the Leafs go a lot farther back then the '70s people, come on.

Also, I'd like to point out that this game is made to spread the game of hockey across NA, and more specifically, USA, so the chances the Leafs use a green coloured jersey are very small as they NHL wouldn't want to confuse 'new'/'ocassional' fans.

They're most definitely going to go with a blue and white jersey... it's in the Maple Leaf brand that they're trying to spread.

Yup. No way they use the St. Pats jersey.

1934-35 is my pick:

Not a fan of the 70's jerseys. I don't know why so many people like them.

1927-30 or the Arenas but it would depend on if Detroit used a Red Wings version or either the Cougars or Falcons.

37-38 White please. I hate when there are too many stripes, but hate when there aren't any. Than one is just right.

I like how plain the 27-30 Home Jerseys are, them or the Arenas if they opt to go as far back as possible.

I'm really just happy we're finally in a WC game, doesn't matter to me which J's we sport!

Really, what they should have done is saved our current thirds for this game, and then brought them back as our thirds. But, that option is no longer on the table, so...

I hope they go with the Arenas, it worked really well for Detroit going back to a team from their past. The Cougars jerseys were sleek - and the Arenas T will look just as nice. Keep it simple and clean.

If not that, then I hope it's the 70s jerseys.

St. Pats' colours are too far removed from the Leafs.
37-38 is too similar to what we have now.
Hate hate hate the 27-30 blues.

I think the Toronto Arenas 1917-1918 ones would be cool, except I'm sure Cherry would crow about how those boys shoulda been in Europe at that point.
