I know what you're thinking, this poll will answer deep philosophical questions about hockey and society

Right. So it's not profound, I was just curious and wanted to gauge how HF feels about alts.

So since 99% of the time they're worn at home (except the Caps who have white alts) the choices will be out of 41 home games. Make it road games for the Caps.

About 3 or 4 times a year. Except for the Devils Christmas trees those should only be brought out on Christmas and St. Marty's day

Somewhere between 8 and 12 times a season (if that), depending on the team.

Think Blues do it for weekend home games only. Works for me

I recall reading on icethetics that the NHL has rules regarding teams using third jerseys. I will check into it, but I think you have to use the thirds for 8 games.

Depends on the team. I'd like Ottawa to use theirs as much as possible.

Around 5. I like the Bruins' alternates but I really don't care if they wear them or not.

10, but considering the Stars don't have alternate jerseys, it doesn't really matter to me.

The Sharks alternates are the only nice jerseys out of the ones they have now so I'd want them worn as much as possible. The Sharks only wear them on Thursday home games and have started wearing them for home playoff games.

Yes we do. The only one with an actual logo.

EDIT - Facepalm not meant for you, the fact that we don't use a logo.

I believe once or twice a decade is the right answer here

Around 10 for alternates. And once a season for throwbacks.

I said about ten times. I like it when two original six teams for example wear their alternate jerseys
