  1. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I really like those new Pens road unis... especially all patched up. My appetite for that jersey is only outmatched by Phil's appetite for... everything. Might have to get one one day and make it a Kessel as well.

  5. eBay version 4.0

    Just got my retro and it's a Lextra. Probably going with Hall just to mess with you guys.
  6. eBay version 4.0

    Got a christmas tree. I really like that style and wanted one in a 52 and at a good price. My patience was rewarded.
  7. eBay version 4.0

    Even I bought one!!
  8. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Thought about it - put all the gear on and pretend I'm a walking display If you look at the Preds jersey, looks like there's some stitching in the elbow that would suggest double elbows. I didn't notice until I just looked now. Um, maybe a little better than replicas, but maybe just because they're sewed down. Haven't seen the new Indos.

    I agree. Couple shots of them on display:

    I had that thought as well, especially considering these were done just for the draft. Interestingly enough, I dropped by City Sports Lettering today and asked them if they'll be doing the on-ice lettering for the Hawks still, and they confirmed they will be. Sounds like Adidas did push them to go with their new style lettering (and I think new method for doing crests, as the guy mentioned the Hawks wanted to keep the chain stitching - which obviously doesn't apply to numbers). So at least for the Hawks, nothing should be changing. Ah, that makes sense. I hadn't seen one in person.

    I was at the draft and got some photos of the jerseys. Confirmed looking at the collars these are the on-ice made in Canada ones. Sucks we can't get them at retail, but maybe it will be just for a year that's the case. One big change I noticed is a number of shoulder patches are mostly sublimated then stitched around the outside. In the photo below you can see this for Tampa, Sharks and Capitals. Also noticed a lot of previously two-layered twill numbers are now just single layer-sublimated (like Nashville previously). The gold outline on the Vegas numbers is a very abrasive material, not like anything I've seen elsewhere. Anyways, a couple shots below.

    Not to crap all over the excitement, but the wording on this page doesn't have me hopeful this is the case: https://www.nhl.com/goldenknights/news/when-where-and-how-to-buy-a-golden-knights-jersey/c-290042660 Canada isn't exactly overseas

    Ahhh man, wish I knew about it... could have had someone pick one up for me. Hawks had 50% off sales but don't have Canadian 2.0s

    Noticed that myself... the shoulder patch looked particularly bad.
