Well, if they keep the designs for next year, at least the Leafs don't seem to be wearing vintage white.

Plus that early '80s Detroit number font is pretty unique too.

Would be interesting to see the sleeves on the jerseys. I like the logos though. Well done.

Would love to see them do a red vs. blue matchup to avoid the undoubtedly vintage white uniforms Toronto would be wearing.

This is the rare matchup where both teams look much better in their white's than their colored sets.

I would think Detroit would be wearing white and, hopefully, not of the vintage variety.

Anyone else think Detroit's current jerseys would look even better if they used that number font?

Why use such a baseless fauxback when the striped sweaters are there to use? Bad.
The females in the establishment start admiring Dirty for his assets, which just causes Dirty to return to the situation at hand: his money. He asks for the females' assistance in rectifying the situation, and subsequently asks them to expose their nether regions. Dirty finishes off the song with some nonsensical lyrics, that clearly imply his rising anger for the missing money.

This just makes me mad that I have to wait until next year to enjoy the Winter Classic! I literally live 15-25 minutes from Ann Arbor and could have been there enjoying the winter festivities.

I like the designs, and I'm pretty sure we would have had a Red vs Blue match up. While I'm not huge on the vintage white, it does help the Wings vary the colors of white and red.

Apparently they'd be wearing their 1927 throwbacks. Considering what Detroit wore last time, and how the Leafs have avoided the fauxback trend, I think we'll see both teams wearing clean white.

So Leafs vs Wings at the Big House will probably be the 2014 Winter Classic right? Any chance the league would pick new teams and a new venue? Probably not, I would think.

Nice to see that Toronto resisted the urge to go with the St. Pats throwbacks.

I have season tickets to the Red Wings and bought Winter Classic tickets. The Red Wings sent out information where you could get a refund for the Winter Classic or just let them hang onto the money until next year's game. So, its's apparent, The Big House will host the game next year.

As for the uniform match up, I am hoping for a color on color game. Red vs. Blue would look great. As it is, they were going to divide the 100K+ stadium up (as far as ticket allotment goes) into the Leafs sections and the Wings sections and were going to promote wearing of the colors to make the stadium half red, half blue.

The St. Pats era, while part of the Leafs' lineage represents a sort of failed experiment. An attempt to brand themselves as a Celtic/Irish/Catholic-centric club, a hockey version of Celtic FC if you will. It didn't really take and they became the Maple Leafs, a team embraced across southwestern Ontario, and most of English Canada for decades. While the lineage of the St. Pats and Maple Leafs is one and the same the Leafs were the team that a nation got behind while the St. Pats were the team that didn't even really appeal to the demographic they were pandering to.
Also Maple Leafs vs Red Wings is a great historical rivalry. St. Pats vs Red Wings was never even a thing.

Plus there's the fact that the Leafs were chosen for this game because of their widespread appeal. The Toronto Maple Leafs brand is very strong. Why dilute it with a uniform set so far removed from the look the brand is known for?

So true. The Wings and Leafs have a rich history going back to The Original Six days. Plus, with Toronto only being a 5 hour drive to Ann Arbor, it's a natural fit. The demand for tickets in the Detroit-Ann Arbor area and Toronto was off the charts.
