If they don't go back to the old ones after this season, they will be around until the NHL comes out with something "better". I can't see them going away anytime soon really though, mainly because I'm sure the league has a contract with RBK. Personally, I won't be buying one anytime soon, probably not for a few years.

I bought one of the practice jerseys to use for when I play. I must admit that I don't like it, but for only one reason. I always used my jersey to wipe sweat from my face, and because of the whicking material, I am not able to do that. So, I wouldn't get another jersey to play in, but if I had the money I would considering getting one to wear to games.

We had a thread going on the Bruins board about this. Take a look at the lettered jerseys before buying one and make sure you like the new style -- the names and numbers are silkscreened, not stitched on like they used to be.

FWIW I think the jerseys will be around for a few years. If you don't like red (and I like the retro look of the new jerseys) you can probably get clearance prices on the old style jersey.

If you have the money I would say go ahead and buy 1 of the new Caps jerseys, those things look pretty sweet.

You clicked the links, right? The vintage is in the same style as the Capitals' first jersey when they entered the league. Technically the one being sold on nhl.com is a replica -- the fabric is of a lighter weight than the "authentic" and it doesn't have a fight strap (or whatever they call it) which would allow you to secure it to your hockey pants. What they're calling a replica is a practice jersey. This year's premier is what I would have called a replica last year. The style is the same as what Ovechkin will wear this year but the fabric is lighter and it's less expensive than the authentic, which is allegedly the same jersey in every way that the players would wear. There are die hard fans who will buy the authentic but on the whole I think most fans would buy the premier. It looks good enough and it cost about half as much as the authentic.

An authentic is the actual jersey to spec as those worn on the ice in game by the players. One key point is that an Authentic is sized by number and has the fight strap. Sized as S,M,L,Xl w/ a fight strap is NOT authentic.

Also the weight of the fabric in a replica is about HALF of the material used in authentic. Replicas are easily cut or ripped in play. Auhtentics are difficult to damage under normal non-check play. An authentic can be more easily repaired so you cant see the damage where as a replica is pretty much toast.

given the replica is my only choice I would go with a replica thats sublimated over any screen print. Sublimated graphics do not wear or fade.

how can it be the same but lighter? its either the same or NOT the same, right? Recall your easter candy? Its like saying that a hollow and solid bunny are the same but one is lighter. YEah, both are chocolate but there are obvious differences between the two in what your going to get.

The premier will rip easily in comparison to the authentic.

If you were to take 3 replica jerseys and put one inside the other, thats about what game weight is(no crest/lettering/numbering. The knit is much heavier. another example: Two guys standing at a camp fire side by side. Wind blows hot embers up onto the jerseys of both. Both jump back and brush off quickly. The replica will have holes in it while the game weight may have scorch marks but no hole.

in repairing, the game weight you can "darn" back in well and easily enough that a small rent would be hard to notice. These vintage/replicas are too thin for the same method and a repair stands out like a sore thumb.

I think you misunderstood my post.
The authentic is made with the thickest material and has a fight strap.
I believe all the others -- the vintage, the premier and the replica -- are made from the same gauge material which is thinner than the authentic. The authentic and the premier look alike but the premier is mostly made to be worn on the street, not on the ice.

Furthermore, if the replica were "the same but lighter", then wouldn't it be better than the authentic? And then the players would wear the replicas.
