So do I go for authentic at 50% off or are the imitations still cheaper and just as good?
Some of the imitations are absolutely terrible, the blue color is off and the crest is simply horrible. Personally you should get the semi pro one at the boutique of the player you like

Just took a walk since I don't work too far from the BC and folks the jersey prices with # are 239.99$ so ya even at half price your looking at about 150$ with taxes for a jersey

The "imitations" were never even CLOSE to being as good as even the authentic replica sold by the team. Ugh.

Most Quebecers have been missing hockey since last april... I'm thinking the lineup will be 21273 people by 16:45 tops.

And here I am contemplating an afternoon «medical appointment»... when I should really use those for interviews or actual appointments...

I have to say it's a pretty poor way to win back or thanks the fans for their support after seeing the press conference where Geoff Molson seemed to really care about the fans here in Montreal.

I wish they could have promotional nights.

If you can't make it to the scrimmages on Thursday or Saturday, can you still get merchandise at 50% off ? That's what Molson should do.

prob just at the boutique at bell center.

i also love how the deal is only on those 2 days. it would be better it it was for at least a week.

imo super lame.

it is basically just a smoke and mirrors deal to get fans in the arena for a practice and the reserve of excess food they will give away. (from all the canceled games)

basically when the puck drops it will be full price tickets and premium pricing and full price concession and merchandise as usual.

i do not consider this an apology



''but i gave you free practice and free food"



''NO EXCUSES''

The 50% off at the store is nice. If I had the money available now, I'd probably buy a jersey with either Eller or Galchenyuk on it. Oh well, I can wait and just pay regular pricing in the future.

its nice because you live within reasonable distance of the BC.

Montreal fan base goes far beyond us, who live in the city.

Are you kidding me ?? This is our religion....we could care less about the lock out at this point we want hockey. Win us back.....have you read just these boards for example since the announcement ? Every where i go someone has a JDM is their hands reading about Subban and Gomez.

Win us back....i lol'd
