According to awesome Slim’s sweet book, the Kings wore airknits and ultrafils in 1992/93. Does anyone know if their final-worn jerseys were ultrafil or airknit? And what year did the Kings abandon ultrafils for good? Need to get my next project right. 

Pretty sure LAK74 will know.

Chevy logo jerseys were airknit in every playoff season from 1990-93.  Last ultrafils were used during 1995/96.

Yes.  Actually all the way back from 1988 to 1996.

Airknit jerseys tend to tear more easily than ultrafil and need more repairs, although they have the advantage of better ventilation and therefore they are “cooler” to play in. The regular season sets generally needed to last half a season, so the team went with ultrafil for more durability.  Unless the team went really deep in the playoffs, a playoff set wouldn’t usually be used for more than 3 to 7 games, so the team switched to airknit for better player comfort, without having to worry about the need for excessive repairs or multiple jerseys for each player.

I got this info from the Kings’ equipment manager.

That’s crazy.  I would have never known that.

Truth be told, I would much rather slap a 100th cup patch on my ultrafil than a final patch anyway. 

This is just part of the reason I’ve never had a Kings ‘93 Finals jersey made up.  Airknit Chevys were team-issued only, and extremely hard to find.  (The only one I have is a playoff gamer.)   Also, an authentic Finals patch is super rare.  Add to that, having to cut a weirdly-shaped ultrafil swatch to stitch the patch to before stitching the whole assembly over an already-existing SC100 patch, is too much trouble and expense to go to, just to make a jersey they lost in.  😠

I think you meant to say "A jersey that shouldn't even have existed". 

F YOU KERRY FRASER

Geeze, I think I have problems because I am still upset about the missed Tuck Rule call.

Of course when your team hasn’t won a cup since before the original Woodstock, I understand why you might complain about borderline penalties in the playoffs in the early 90s.

It wasn't a borderline penalty.  The blood was on Gilmour's chin to prove it.  Kerry Fraser is a lying sack of s*** piece of garbage.

For Blue Jackets home jersey Edge 2.0 wordmark (2011-17), narrowed it down to these:

17 Dubinsky (A), 13 Atkinson, 71 Foligno (C), 61 Nash (C), or 72 Bobrovsky?

Note that the shoulder patches changed for the 2015-16 season.  If you have the cannon shoulder patches it's 2015-17.  For the hat shoulder patches it would be 2011-15.

Good catch. It's the hat. Will have to go back and cross-reference to confirm who gets eliminated.

The beauty of this form on display... more eyes and minds on your project the better and we all learn something from it.  I'd have never thought or known about the differing shoulder patches in this instance but now I've learned something about Blue Jackets jerseys.

My vote would go for Foligno or Atkinson.

I'm thinking about Pisani on this 2.0? But did he ever wear that as a 2.0?

Was originally thinking about Gagner, but who knows how long he'll be around for.... and he hasn't done much for the Oilers.

 

Thanks! 🙂

A quick look at the Meigray population reports appears to show that Pisani wore exclusively 1.0's with the Oilers.

Thanks. Who would you recommend I put on it then? Would Smyth work?

Those jerseys should not even exist as 2.0’s.  No Oiler player ever wore a 2.0 until after that style was retired.  So if that jersey is really team-issued (and I have no reason to doubt that it is), the team simply never used them in games.

Wow! Didn't know that.

I wonder if I should just leave it blank then.

If that’s true, then I would say anyone who wore that style as a 1.0 is fair game. There’s no way to customize it “correctly”, so any player who wore that style as a 1.0 would be the most accurate you could get.
