Well, I've been SUPER slacking with the holidays to get this posted, but I'm insanely excited to actually have managed to snag a Flyers Adidas MIC.

Jori Lehtera, 2017 Flyers Carnival

Still can't believe what I got this for at the auction, but I'm so happy. It's likely eventually going to be stripped... but I kinda want someone else to go first so I know if it strips clean (although the #19 will cover the #15 almost perfectly). My biggest question is will the Carnival patch strip cleanly... perhaps to be covered by a Lindros patch?

That’s an awesome pick up..... well the player for us Blues fans that is

I picked up this "back up worn" McElhinney from MeiGray this week, but after doing some research I found that the jersey was game worn and have been able to photomatch it.  Another interesting thing about this jersey is that it has the wrong NHL shield on it.  When the Jackets changed their shoulder patches to the newer cannon patch the jerseys also received the new thinner felt-like NHL Shield, but this jersey has the older harder shield.  In 2016-2017 the Jackets did not have enough of the new jerseys with the cannon patch so they took some of the older jerseys with the cap patch and stripped off the patch and replaced it with the new cannon patch.  You can see clear evidence on the jersey of the change.

I doubt they will use them again for the game against the craps.  No other information is out yet about what they will be wearing.

we’re still wondering if they will be wearing st pats jerseys again for the st pats game.

I've heard that the Stadium Series jerseys will be the Centennials with the colours flipped. And about the gamers, the answer I got from RealSports is that Lou suspended the game worn program jersey when he became GM.

That dude has (had?) a brilliant hockey mind, but he is really not very fun.

The funny thing is, one on one, my family has talked to him about collecting game worn jerseys and he always seemed to enjoy the interactions. Maybe it's what we own, but he's complemented us on our collection and even our displays (I have a really great story about this that i'll only share in private) but Lou the man is much different then Lou the GM.

Got these in the other day:  Taylor Hall 17-18 red set 1 game worn jersey and Marcus Johansson 17-18 white set 1 game worn jersey.  I preordered the Hall back at the start of the season and got the Johansson as an impulse buy.  Hall played in 14 games with this jersey and had 6 goals and 6 assists while wearing it. Hall also has shortened sleeves and some minor wear on it but I was able to photomatch it to a picture I took of him in December during warmups with the mark right above his shoulder number (as well as a couple of Getty images I found).  The Devils got a new equipment manager this year and it looks like they are no longer stitching together repairs but instead heat pressing swatches of fabric from the inside of the jersey to repair holes.  Hall had the A removed during their HFC night between periods and it looks like they did it in a hurry as they tore the jersey fabric.  They later re-applied the A.  The Johansson has some minor wear I am still looking to match as well as evidence of the A being removed.  Also customized with 2 additional fight straps sewn in as well.  MoJo played 9 games in this jersey and scored 3 goals and 3 assists in it (including the other assist on Brian Gibbons goal which was also assisted by Hischier and was Hischier's first NHL point).  Overall I like the look and feel of the Adidas and the fabric has zero resemblance to the Indo-Zero's sold to the public.  They are also about a size smaller than their Reebok Edge 2.0 counterparts.

 The Johansson...as well as evidence of the A being removed. 

That must have been painful for both of them. 

Those are awesome. Is that three fight straps inside a Marcus Johansson jersey? What is he afraid of, falling out of his jersey, he's not physical at all!!

lol if I told you the A went to Boyle that makes things a little bit kinkier for all the wrong reasons lol.

Yeah the two additional ones are sewn to the sides.  It is to keep the jersey from riding up/secure due to the no-tuck rule these days with jerseys.  In fact last night during the game in Dallas there was a play right beside the Dallas net with MoJo and you can see his jersey ride up a little and both the main fight strap and one of the additional fight straps were visible.  I should have taken a quick screen shot of that for reference.

I'd have cropped it closer. Devilsguy went for the whole arena feel, I would have went with more of a "chick with a slutty sign" focus.

That would require effort and quite frankly I think it adds a certain aura like you said.

I took the pic a few minutes after the game.  I forgot if we lost or won quite frankly.  She was holding the sign and allowing people to take pictures of her holding it the entire game.

Oh, and it looks like I was right about the twill nameplates for the PX jerseys? :D

They really do look like twill, and during the games they do as well. If you get around to doing a close-up, it would be appreciated.
