I really dig the front script, and that's about it. The complete lack of red, outside of the neck triangle, kills it for me. There really should have been some inclusion of it as an accent color. Using the primary as a shoulder patch would at least form some sort of connection to the other jerseys in this "set". The skinny shoulder trim also looks rather out of place with a jersey that is obviously designed to evoke a classic look. If the shoulder area was a contrasting color, this would be okay. But since it's just more green, it's just more of the Reebok Edge look around the shoulders. And the numbering appears to not only be single-color, it looks like it's done in Machine, the bastard stepchild of block fonts, which will send steam spouting from Spyboy's ears.

Congratulations, Minnesota. You have three uniform concepts. Now, pick one.

I don't know. The jersey is alright, I just think I'm relatively down on the Wild's whole color scheme. I love the green, but I just can't stand the red.

I think the only reason that red is hardly seen in the alternate is because it would look garish. Red pants with that all green jersey would be vomit-inducing. The regular red jerseys/green pants combo narrowly avoids that classification.

The problem , as I see it, is that I can't think of a complementary color to green that isn't already used in the NHL. Blue would seem logical, but that's already used by the Canucks. Yellow would be unique, but this is Minnesota, and those are Packers colors.

Anyway, I'm probably the only one who sees it that way, so I digress.

So-so jersey.

Oh man, that sweater's beautiful! I was a bit nervous when I heard it was going to have "Minnesota Wild" spelled out on the front, but they did it right. AWESOME job!

Now, if the Wild can have this design as their alternate, and make a white version of the red jersey for the road, they'll actually have a nice full set. As it stands, the current road looks a bit out-of-place with the overall retro look the Wild have gone for.

A white version of the red would look dumb (never mind the bad names/numbers). The current white jersey is ok, though the original version with the thicker striping was better. Plus the numbers are outstanding on that jersey.

I wonder which numbering/lettering they used for this one. It's obviously block, but that small glimpse makes me think it's not as clunky as the version on the reds.

Weren't the North Stars Green and Yellow?

I like it. I like the throwback allure of the script font.

First reaction: Man that is a beautiful jersey. Want.

Second reaction: Nitpick time. That is not the letter "M" I was expecting, and I'm not sure it works well at all. The "N"s are not connected well; too much scripty filigree there. I'm never a fan of putting more text inside the underline below script lettering. Is there another hockey team in Minnesota with whom we might confuse the wearer of this jersey? No? Then "Wild" is redundant. Needs more red. Much more red. Stripes or a yoke or even elbow pads: I kind of don't care where it appears, but this needs a touch more red.

Based on this image alone, I'm calling a B-minus, but this is still a massive Want for me.

No point in me posting, when I can use this. I don't dig the script but the rest of the post is dead on. It definitely needs more connection to the complete team identity, i.e. more red and using the logo on the sleeve.

Now they have three templates. They should definitely make the primaries match (but I fear they'd go circle logo in both cases).

Dumb as in dumber than having three different jerseys in one set? It coudn't possibly look dumber than that.

I really love the new alternate. It doesn't need alot of red to look good, it's more than fine the way it is right now. Also, it could be just the picture but that green appears a shade darker than what the Wild usually wear.

Ha! Dammit, you're right. How easily I forget. I change my mind -- it would be a brilliant move to swap out the red for yellow and make it a secondary to the green. If nothing else, it will be a symbolic move to remember the team-that-should-have-never-left. I'm going to start a campaign!
