This had to kill them this year... When I flew out for the Finals my intention was to bring my Simmonds jersey to wear to a game and then pick up a white jersey for the second game. I get there and there is no Kopitar, no Brown, no Quick, no Richards, no Doughty, no Carter... The only jerseys they had were Williams and Gagne and I wasn't buying either of those. I was shocked at how terrible the selection was and how they could not have any of the other players. I know at Excel here in town you can walk in and they have about 30 jerseys for ever player on the team in any style and discouted older player jerseys. I understand there are 3 teams they have to cater to at Staples but man they had to be losing big time money not having anything in stock.
