Over the course of the last week, news about the 2014 Winter Classic has been popping up like wild fire.

Prior to Kevin McGran's report in the Toronto Star on Wednesday that the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs would be the teams playing in the event, Icethetics (a hockey jersey website), ran a story about a potential leaked version of the Maple Leafs' sweater.

On Friday, leaks began popping up of what looks to be the Red Wings Winter Classic sweater, as well.

Both Icethetics and Sportslogos.net ran posts featuring an eBay listing for a "rare throwback alternative" Pavel Datsyuk jersey. However, the jersey doesn't appear to be a throwback to anything that has previously appeared in Red Wings history and looks to be in the style of recent renditions of sweaters worn in the Winter Classic.

The Datsyuk jersey appears to have all the appropriate markings (the price tags and Reebok tags, etc.) of a legitimate jersey.

What do you think? Are these the Winter Classic jerseys? Do you like them?
