Long nameplates are the greatest thing in all of the land.

They should have just gone full-circle on that one. All around the wee #10.

That's good thank you and confirms what I already thought. Author is slightly misleading (though I believe simply mistaken and in good faith) with an inference that the Indos will be same as players wear on ice. The quote below referencing the different material used in shoulders for Fanatics. 

Quote - "...however, it’s way different looking than what the players wear and it screams, this jersey is not the authentic one."

There were a couple of other spots like when discussing the tie down strap for example that makes me think people believe the Indos to be on ice versions. 

The price difference is pretty close between the two (to me at least). Not sure why you'd go Fanatics when you could have Authentic-ish. Then again, I doubt I'll be picking up an Indo and at the moment and I'm not sure I'll get an Adidas at all. If I do I'll probably try for a TI/GI. Maybe. 

 

Edit - holy crap! My font changed halfway through. Sorry about that. If Keener or EPS tried that stunt I'd be well dark.

Agree, but the author does make the statement in the comments section "Correct. It’s the official “authentic” jersey for fans. When I say “on ice” I mean it as a term not literally."

This should have been in the body of the article

That said, there are fans like us all over (even here in Las Vegas) that know the difference between the adizero and the indozero and want the real deal!!

The article was not geared towards jersey snobs like us.  It was geared to the general fanbase which are the same ones who have often claimed for years they cannot tell the difference between officially licensed jerseys and cheap Chinese knockoffs.  I don't think the author cared or even knew about he nuances of retail authentic and on-ice authentics.

Not a fan of JFK wearing 23. That number should be retired to recognize all-time Boston great Chris Kelly. ("Christopher", if you're using annoying Pierre McGuire voice.)

Thank you. I didn't read the comments.

Well, I just talked to MeiGray's Bruins rep and I'm starting the process of acquiring this jersey. He's on an ELC and played a grand total of one game last year so I shouldn't really be breaking the bank to get it.

Good call, that name is too awesome not to own that jersey.

I think the nameplate goes onto his arms. My God, I must have it just for the novelty of it.

Hockey lodge has customization for $70 but they have an option for stitching which is plus $50 on top of that. So $120 total customization.

Caught some reruns of the Devils Rangers game from the other night. Looks like the new Adidas jerseys held up pretty good during the Puempel vs. Lappin fight.

Yeah they did.

Also, after Miles Wood's hand pass in OT they zoomed in on him as he was standing up. Got a decent view of the Meigray and PX tagging.

Devils jerseys are in stock on IJ. I have emails in to both IJ and EPS as to whether they have Adidas nameplate material.

in my estimation, the differences in the customization this year are irrelevant in terms of doing an Indo. I’ll save dealing with PX until the Canadian ones are available.

Next blank gets ordered immediately.

I ordered a Hischier this morning. Told them not to use twill for the plate, so whatever else they stick on I'll deal with until I can get a Canadian made.

I wasn't bothering sending out an indo for accuracy. This is a short term jersey.

Well you are smarter than I, clearly.
