NHL Shop should be embarrassed: "Montreal Canadians"
 
It's nice that the vintage "barber pole"/C.A.C. jersey is finally for sale on the NHL Shop.

But it's pathetic that they were put up as "Montreal Canadians."

I bet whoever did it was a fan of the Maple Leaves.

also historical... "canadiens" literally means "french canadians", this was originally the francophone team of the city

I'm a sucker for vintage jerseys.:( I think I might have to buy one.

JMMR 12-05-2008 10:08 PM

How come they do not have the Jerseys they wore last night on there?

Sined 12-05-2008 10:11 PM

Can anyone explain why Authentic < Premier < Youth in price for the barber poll one.

Ross MacLochness 12-05-2008 10:24 PM

I'm surprised how many people spell this wrong. It's pretty obvious those who do are new to hockey. I mean no one goes around calling Toronto the "Maple Leaves".

Is this really worth making a fuss over?

Yeah, this is truly an outrage. This may be the single worst thing I've ever heard happening ever. Oh my.

In the real world...no, but on HF it's definitely thread worthy. ;)

A sucker for the CAC eh?

....Sorry couldnt resist. All in good fun.

Interestingly enough, if you go to the page and choose a player to "customize" the jersey, you can see kind of what the numbering and names will look like. Numbers look kind of vintage-ish.

My biggest fear is when I'll be sporting that sexy jersey, people might not get at first that it's the Canadiens.

But you can feel confident that people who know what the jersey is are good hockey people. Just like when I wear my Montreal Maroons one to a bar or something. If someone recognizes it, yeah that will probably be a good person to talk hockey with.

I'm a Sabres fan and I want the barber pole jersey. :D

The Forum was the Maroons' arena originally, right?

It's an hilarous shirt. Yet...in cannot help but pull you in, right?

Pascal 12-06-2008 07:11 AM

on CNN last night they had a big huge headline with "General Moters" and it stayed there for a good 20 mins.

Let's see if we can keep this on topic, and/or continue with interesting historical info. If it devolves even slightly towards a language debate, it will be locked.
