There's definitely no hope at this time. Canadian-made authentics will not be sold at retail. They will only be made available to the teams. At this point, the only way to get one will be to buy a GI or GW.

That crystallises the thought process though. It's GW/GI/TI or skip it all together at this point. It may also push the prices of those items higher. Who knows.

Henrik Lundqvist was on "Live With Kelly and Ryan" today. I had it on in the office in the background with the sound off while I was making my calls. They did some goofy segment where Henrik and Kelly took shots on Seacrest, wearing goalie pads. He flopped around like the Arse he is. But he and Ripa were wearing customized Rangers Adizero jerseys, without any tags or badges on the body like the Indo versions seem to have. 

That's incorrect. I was there. They had the badges.

I stand corrected. Thank you CJ. I had the sound off and was doing three other things at the time. But Ryan Seacrest is still a douchebag.

Someone who recently talked to EPS told me that they told him that they are not doing Devils anymore.

If true, this really sucks.

I guess that depends on who will be doing them.

With our (Devils) luck, some little shop that doesn't take outside orders.

WC logo looks pretty cool.

Rangers logo looks like it's a baseball logo.

I was hoping TI's, but with Fanatics taking over for Meigray (apparently), who knows.

Some news for all. 

Spoke with my Canucks rep. He advised that the team will be offering the Retail Authentic for $200 Canadian and the Pro On Ice Authentic for $400 Canadian. Apparently Adidas has set the pricing "league wide" which means that other teams MAY offer the made in Canada jersey for retail sale. It's up to each team to order and resell.

Did they happen to say if the On-ice authentics would be team-issued sizes only (52 and up), or whether 46/50's might be available?

Can't wait to buy $800 worth of jerseys my team's fan base hates.

No sizing confirmations. My belief is 54 and up based on historical sizing that the Canucks had on hand for team stock. Apparently Adidas has done a terrible job communicating with the team about the new jerseys and they are ordering limited stock because of high price. By comparison blank team stock was $329.99 CAD with Reebok. I was told that all ordering is done with Adidas USA meaning that prices are in US and converted to CAD which drives up cost and hence the $400 CAD MSRP. Definitely sounds like the program isn't being met with a positive reception at least in Vancouver.

I missed the whole US vs. Canadian dollar thing. 

Can't wait to buy $658 worth of jerseys my team's fan base hates.

Lol. With the way the CAD VS USD exchange is going you might be back to your original $800 ;)  

For any Van fans, nothing to really be excited about. Virtually unchanged when you see it in person.

I wouldn't trust second-hand info. I'd go directly to the source.

Wonder if the Devils are going with the perforated Adidas numbering?

I could have sworn I saw something recently that indicated the Devils were keeping the regular twill. If I find it again, I'll let you know.

Disappointing. I'd like to say I'm surprised, but I'm not. 

Now you'll have to excuse my ignorance here but are the teams charged those prices for their jerseys? Effectively retail prices when selling direct from manufacturer to clubs?

I was told that Adidas sells pro jerseys direct to the team equipment managers for the same price ($400) and the team is forced to apply the Adidas MSRP if they resell. I know there is margins for all the other products (hats, retail Authentic, shirts, etc) but it sounds like these are not intended to have a wholesale and retail margin since they don't actually offer at retail.
