    I’m hoping we decide to use the Winter Classic jersey as our alternate, or some other design from the WC merchandise. I was perplexed that they would use the old white throwbacks as the alternate these past couple years. First of all, we haven’t had much luck in those particular jerseys from what I can recall, and the alternate jersey should be a HOME JERSEY. The Capitals fans are the only ones who care about the Capitals’ alternate jerseys… so why not wear them where the home fans can appreciate them?
