I'd rather take the live games and fake jersey. Some people just have different priorities in money. To each his own. I understand the NHL caring, but there is too much to worry about to get mad at someone over how they spend their money. Blegh
Buy a fake jersey, pair it with a Folex watch that turns a wrist green, put a Cadillac emblem on a Yugo and head out on the town.

How about no jersey + go to live games. It's the one very logical pairing you left out. If money is so tight that it is a choice between one or the other, buy a t-shirt. It's a better choice than the horrendous fakes people wear that look nothing like the real thing and highlight their willingness to buy a counterfeit.

A blank, team overstock jersey goes for under $100 blank. Legit replicas are available for around $75 and up if you're patient and know what to look for. I've bought a game worn Predators jersey for under $165 including shipping during a sale. There are plenty of preseason jerseys, legit team issued and player worn, for around $200 ..... or $100 less than a blank "authentic" at the team store. I'm sorry, but defending counterfeits just doesn't fly.
