Steven Grant presents a unique third jersey with a racing theme for the Motor City-based Detroit Red Wings. He writes:

For this concept I was just messing around with a few ideas for a Red Wings third jersey. The striping pattern is inspired by racing stripes on old fashioned cars. The captain patch in a circle is also inspired by old cars, specifically how old racing cars had numbers within a circle. I then used their old fashioned D logo as the primary logo, and I kept the equipment from their current jerseys.

What do you say? Too far out for a franchise as old as the Wings? Or just what they need to shake up their look?
