Regular jerseys should have been worn in Winter Classic

Let's face it, the winter classic was a success with over 71, 000 fans enjoying a game of outdoor hockey.

But if you ask me the teams were not in proper attire.

The point of this was to get fans in the U.S. to learn to like the game of hockey, right? Well, then shouldn't the teams have been wearing their regular jerseys so that somebody doesn't go and buy a baby blue Pittsburgh jersey instead of a black and yellow one?
