Still the smaller font lettering though? I can't imagine that would be easy to strip. In any case, mind sharing a couple pics?

Makes me madder than it should that they've done this.

Only consolation is it looks like the 46 MiC WCOH jerseys have the same sized crest as the larger sizes. Now I'm even more vested in the hope they eventually release retail versions of the actual on ice authentics (because obviously no chance to pick up a TI that small).

I have a couple of pics but I don't have them on a site to upload right now- I can email them to you if you want to send me a PM.

Ick, really???  I could understand the 42-44, but come on.  Ugh...

I have had both a 46 and 50 in the Oilers jerseys and that's where the cresting/numbering/name bar gets shrunk.

I found the 50 to be uncomfortably big, so I bought blank 46's and had them customized using the normal sized name bar + numbering. Looks great and TBO the only time the logo looks off is when it is hanging up or laid out. A friend wears a 56 and the proportions look the same when worn to a game. 

I've never had someone come up to me and say "hey your logo looks small".

I get that I'm probably more stressed about this than I should be.

It's a bit different with the Rangers where the "crest" actually takes up more vertical space. I'm just used to the letters starting at a certain point on my chest and ending down near my belt across a range of different makers on the smaller sizes - and that's how I like it.

Having said that... I wonder what a 46 would look like if one where to strip the front crest off and have the regular sized crest put on.

MIC Pens (ugh) jersey came in the other day. I gotta say, I'm surprised at how much I like it and how different the material feels compared to the MIC WCOH jersey I have. Why would Adidas change the design/material in such a short timeframe? I still dislike the curved striping on the rear and the collar on most teams. If Adidas were to tweak the Hawks collar and straighten the stripes, I'd be happy to pick a few up. In the meantime, this jersey is going to be stripped and turned into a Crosby. Then chances are sold. Don't have a need for a Pens jersey in my collection, really just wanted to see how the MIC NHL jerseys were in person.

That's pretty much my same thoughts. FYI, the back numbers were pretty tough for me to get off and left A LOT of glue that I have to remove. Hope you have better luck.

watching a lot of Tampa games, looks like the shoulder patches are glued on rubber patches or something?

That might work for a standard crest as you'd cover whatever marks were left behind. Not sure it would work with the Rangers lettering.

Buuut ... It'd probably look like a Reebok 46 :) (template differences aside of course).
