Too mainstream? (I agree, there are too many circles.)

It's problematic, because I really like the jerseys to have sort of a classic feel to them, but Wild's logo doesn't really support that. On the other hand, I'm not too happy with the idea of not having your team's logo on home and away jerseys.

Someone had a mock up of the current thirds (and a subsequent matching white sweater) with just the Wild's main logo:



Looked quite good, in my opinion. The circle just seems like something to use as a shoulder patch at this point. Even if I HATE shoulder patches...

Would love to see that, I don't think I ever have.

I think that would look a little too much like a practice jersey.

going back to the Wild jersey issue, i like the green but not so much the lettering on it, i t just seems too baseball to me.

i would love it if we "re-did" the green to have a top down style just saying Minnesota in plain letters. and if we changed our away jerseys to a wheat colored version.

Would probably look better without the "Minnesota Wild" text curving above. Nonetheless, I do like the concept.

Agreed. Very nice concept. A wheat version would look splendid for the road.

This would look sweet for road jerseys as well. Just change the green to white, have green outlines on the numbers, then have green breezers as well.

I'm not sure. If they have to be white then shame on me for not knowing. :-)

I'm torn, but I'd rather see that logos on our red jerseys, and leave the 3rds alone.

How bout this.

Reds become 3rds

Greens become home
change the whites to be complete opposite of greens. (with Mnnesota across the sweater)

White and green for the norm, and the reds the 3rd's? This way eeryone that likes the reds-no biggie.

That is awesome.

How do you guys feel about the red uni's? Those are probably my favorite in the entire NHL...use those for the home, make the road uni look kind of like that one. The road one you guys use is the only one that I think needs some minor tweaking, not a fan of the stripe going all the way down the arm.

I pretty much suggested that earlier.

I would like a wheat version of the green 3rds.

And agree with the "no red, more green" crowd. The reds were unique for its time when they were the third jerseys and are polarizing; however, I lean on the "ugly" side and the uniqueness has gone away over the past 5 years as other teams utilize the circle logo for their 3rds.
I really like the red jerseys. The fact that other teams utilize the circle logo, in my opinion, shouldn't be our problem. It's the other teams lack of creativity. However, I do think that they will be moving from the reds to the greens, which I prefer anyway, once the Winter Classic comes around.

Hate the Whites, though. They just don't hold a candle to the home jerseys. I find the logo, with nothing else, very boring, the Wild logo on the shoulders to be very bad, and the striping to be too much going on. I say change them to a Wheat, perhaps a Wheat and Green version of our Reds after they get phased out by the WC.

As I have said a million times before, please drop the reds. They just look ugly.

Too christmasy.

Either remake the home and away jerseys or bring back the original greens so they match the away whites, or make the current third the home jersey and make a white/wheat version of that jersey for away and come up with new 3rds.

I don't think so. The Wild have spent the last 15 years trying to create their own identity. They FINALLY have a franchise landmark day with Suter and Parise coming in, and now, with this momentum, they're gonna promote a franchise in Dallas with on their biggest showcase? No way, Jose. First of all, they already sell NS gear, and make plenty of money from that. Second, the Winter Classic jerseys will make a boatful of money, even if the logo is DR taking a dump on the state of Minnesota. Every WC jersey has made money, especially since they tend to become alternates. Throw in the fact that, again, the Winter Classic will be the biggest showcase this franchise will ever have had, and there's no way they won't put out the likeness of THEIR franchise during it.

I know I'm ranting, but I'm tired of the Wild being second best to a team that doesn't exist anymore.

Yeah I agree, the reds look more like a joke than something a team would really wear, lol.

This is a good take. It was in another thread and I thought picking ONE high school team would probably anger most people, same with if they went with old school Minnesota Gophers jerseys over any of the other teams.

The Fighting Saints though I did think would be cool, love that sweater. I've got a picture of all three of the Carlsons autographed that their Mom gave me with them in those sweaters on my "Minnesota Sports Wall of Fame".

That would definitely be cool, and I'm sure they could get the rights. It should be the North Stars, I think we all know that, but if the WC is Minnesota/Dallas...what is Dallas going to go with? and they never gave the rights or history back (like the Browns) so they have those rights if I'm not mistaken.

Probably have to work something out. I just think if this team gets a WC, it's against Dallas so they can take our team and then tap into the Southern Market and have some type of jilted lover story to sell to casual fans.
I seriously want the North Stars as far away from the Winter Classic as possible. If they get realignment done, I'd love to see a Wild-Blues WC. Though I suspect it would be Wild-Blackhawks, which would be cool too, I guess. Certainly sexier.

Or they could do an old-time Norris matchup and get the Wild playing the Lightning.

Here are two mock-ups that people have requested in this thread:



I think the third one could turn out damned sexy, if I may say so myself.
