Old-time hockey

The fedora hats worn by Red Wings coaches were thought of by equipment manager Paul Boyer as a tribute to the hats worn by legendary hockey coaches like Toe Blake. "Toe Blake and old-time hockey," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We needed something on our head, we thought. We didn't realize the benches were going to be quite as warm as they were. I probably didn't need it."

It would be great to see the 06 teams were the hats and old style letter jackets more often. It was an amazing look.

Move over Indiana Jones, here comes Babcock.
