  1. Thanks for the info everyone.
  2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Authentic-Jack-Eichel-Buffalo-Sabres-Reebok-Away-Jersey-52/124041468533?hash=item1ce1729a75:g:KzMAAOSwPjZd1xRG Not the best photos in the listing, but opinions?
  3. Nah, as a Kovalchuk fan, it is an easy choice for me as well. Edit: Didn't pay attention and realized I was replying to a post from September, oops. And I see Mfitz is a Devils fan, completely understand the dislike of Kovalchuk in that case.

    Newer Jerseys

    So best bet is look on eBay for made in Canada authentic Adidas jerseys, fortunately right now the only ones I'd be looking for is the Kings, Canadiens, and Sabres, though in a couple years I'll be looking to get Seattle. Guess this will take time, but to get the best items, the wait is worth it.

    Newer Jerseys

    Looked at a few other sites and noticed that many said don't order customized from NHL.com as the numbers and letters aren't actually fully sewn on, so best bet is to buy a blank or buy from a retailer like icejerseys or other similar sites to get proper stitching.

    Thanks for the info everyone, kind of disappointing that the "authentics" sold online and in stores aren't the same as the on-ice product. Guess I will have to decide if those are "good enough" for me or not.

    Newer Jerseys

    Hi everyone, been out of the jersey game for a little while now but am looking at picking up a few new ones, I have occasionally logged in and handled moderator stuff when I get the email notices, but haven't posted in threads. Due to having purchased any new jerseys in a bunch of years, not sure on the newer products. I see Adidas now makes the jerseys, how are their Authentics? I see the replicas are now Fanatics branded, or are there other replicas that other retailers get now? Other than that, looking forward to rejoining in the conversations.
  8. I created that thread back when this forum was first started, I guess after yesterdays news of Seattle being awarded a team, I get to see how my loyalties are impacted. I know I will cheer for Seattle, but we shall see if they supplant Buffalo as my #1.
  9. My personal preference, get rid of the points in general. You win, you win, you lose, you lose. Only thing about this is I would say that OT and shootout has to change if you are going to go straight wins/losses.
  10. Didn't see anything on this recently. So Seattle sent in an application a couple weeks ago to be the leagues 32nd team. The city finally reached a deal to completely renovate Key Arena (again). The league has already said that the next expansion team Expansion Draft would be the same rules as what Vegas had. Starting 1 Mar, Seattle will be doing their Season Ticket drive. Goal for Seattle is to begin play in the 20/21 season as the Arena would be ready in 2020. All my life, I have cheered for Seattle sports (except for baseball, but my fandom of the A's is still tied to the State of Washington), I have always wondered if Seattle got a team would I change allegiances from the Sabres to a Seattle team, I guess we could possibly find out in a few years.
  11. Wranglers has been used by 3 different teams in Vegas, though 2 of them were baseball teams in the 50's. Could work to use that one, though obviously won't have as many specialty jerseys as the ECHL team did. I am curious on how long the league will remain at an odd number of teams and who will be next to get back to an even number to balance the divisions. Still holding out for Seattle, but until they have an arena plan, I know that isn't likely to happen.
  12. For the Islanders, I would go Peca or Yashin myself. For the Oilers, Doug Weight.
  13. There are many people who only own 1 jersey. If it is a hockey jersey and they go to a hockey game, I personally have no issue with it as they are still wearing the proper sport at least. Now when you wear a hockey jersey to a baseball game or something like that, then that would be a no-go for me.
  14. Have a few priorities to take care of when it comes to finances, but am definitely hoping to get a Sabres Eichel jersey.
  15. I am definitely looking forward to the 10th. Heading down to Austin for the Iron Maiden and Megadeth show, my 2 favorite bands on 1 ticket, gonna be amazing.
  16. Some of the game matches on this are great. Unfortunately my Rucchin gamer doesn't have many distinguishing marks, am still happy to know that he was wearing it when he scored the OT goal in this game. http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/boxscore?gameId=230416025
  17. If you were to get rid of anything, do not get rid of the hard to acquire, rare stuff. These are items that you would likely never get back no matter how hard you tried. Getting rid of things like an Ovechkin Capitals red jersey is one thing, getting rid of a WBS Game Worn that was only worn in one game is another.
  18. Well, as one of the Sabre fans here, all I can say is...Ick, what the hell were they thinking?
  19. As one of the bigger non Devil Kovalchuk fans that I know, just read this and was completely surprised. Though before the lockout ended, he did express an interest in staying in Russian but the agreement between the NHL and KHL pretty much prevented that from being an option this past season.

  21. Glad to see that the 2.0's are now available and they are going away from the Indo's. The biggest disappointment to me is the $300 price tag for a blank 2.0, but it is the way the market has gone in just about every sport the past few years.
  22. So I have been to quite a few events at American Airlines Center and recently I was at an event there and I noticed that of all the banners that the Stars have hanging, they are all from the Dallas Stars era. They have nothing other than the retired numbers banner that acknowledges their time in Minnesota, and even that doesn't say Minnesota, it just has the numbers. I was wondering how the other relocated teams have handled their past.
  23. USCHO and Hockey East used to sell them, but I haven't seen them online in quite a while.
  24. This site hasn't be updated in a few years but it is a good resource too. http://www.azhockey.com/shirts/shirts.html
  25. ESPN has a list of players that have signed overseas and which teams they signed with. http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/page/12lockoutsignings/where-nhl-players-playing
