The new Third jersey: What would YOU change..?

Would you change anything? Everything? Or, nothing at all??

First, look at the 'leaked' ones on the icethetics website:


Then, discuss what you think...

IMO: I almost like them at first sight. I like the dark forest green color, that will hold up well. I also like the fact that they went for some red (not much) in the jersey, but will use the same font for numbers and player names that the current home jerseys (the 'Iron Range Red' ones) do now. I'm not crazy, however, about the block script 'Minnesota Wild' being at a 45-degree angle (I think they had to do this to comply with the Reebok RBK template, otherwise the name would be too small to stand out on a player, especially the smaller ones (PMB, Miettinen, etc.)

Will there be room for the 'C' on Mikko Koivu's sweater where it's supposed to be? Or, like Detroit, will the Captain/Alternate letters be placed on the right-hand side of the jersey?

Inquiring minds want to know. And, come Sunday at the State Fair, I guess we will, starting at 12:30 PM at Fan Central (the former 'Modern Living' building) when Derek Boogaard takes center stage...
