Just don't buy the last Slater one, or I'll have to hate you.

The great thing about a jersey as a kid is you wear it to school, and get a lot more use out of it.

As I'm growing older (26 years of age now), I am realizing that thefunctionality of a jersey is justnot there any more. Yes, itwould be nice to have one to wear to games, but as much as I hate to say it I think I am leaning towards getting a nice hoodie instead. With as much as I'm
paying for tickets this season, I can't really justify spending another $300 on a jersey that I will wear only to games. If I buy a really nice hoodie for $60, I can wear it to games but also casually.

Just my 2 cents.
Booooooo! I am going to spill beer on your hoodie

Yeah, as I was saying, since I don't plan on wearing it everyday, the premier will do me just fine. Especially since they're essentially half the price as the authentics. I'm happy.

I really, really want to get an authentic. But this year I'm saving up for a really nice telescope and an authentic cuts into that big time.

Chances are I'll get an authentic next year but I think for now I'll get a premier. My question is, is it worth it to get a premier customized or wait for an authentic?

So the poll is roughly 30% for replica, 70% authentic. Does anyone know if that is pretty much how the market goes for all NHL jerseys?

On one hand I might be terrified to get stains on an authentic. On the other, I've heard the authentic actually holds up to washes better (even in a standard washing machine).

Hmm...authentic I think. Away. With the inaugural patch. Ladd or Enstrom I think.
