I've been buying based on where I find items. But I find at least for Canadians the cheapest place once you include all the shipping and customs stuff is shop.canada.nhl.com. Amazon.com is pretty good, but the shipping and duty adds up. The most expensive, but sadly necessary at times in teamlastore.com. The reason I say it is necessary at times is that it has a lot of items unavailable elsewhere especially in larger sizes.
But what kills you is that they use UPS for shipping. UPS charges a huge fee for brokerage, I ordered a jersey in February from there and the brokerage fee was about $50 on a $90 jersey. My $50 worth of Western Conference Champs hat and t-shirt had about a $30 brokerage fee attached. This is why I was happy to see that shop.canada.nhl.com had 3XL Cup Champs shirts. It allowed me to skip the duty and brokerage fees that I'd get ordering from the US.
