Agreed, I too have no problem with it. Personally I'd rather have a current player, but the odd retro player on current jerseys that I've seen look alright. Might have something to do with the jerseys looking so slick in general.

I saw a guy with that jersey, but it was a really bad fake.

I would understand if it were a Jets 1.0 jersey, but Selanne has never played for Jets 2.0.

It's like the idiots in Vancouver who have a Bure #10 in their new jerseys. Guy never wore that particular jersey.

I'm thinking about getting my Kane jersey changed. My gut was to go with Wheeler and he sucked at the beginning of last year so I got Kane instead. Don't know what I was thinking since Kane isn't my favourite player on the Jets. Wasn't even my favourite Giant when he played junior. Although I have a Burmistrov jersey too so it does even out. I decided too quickly for my jersey. Usually I take my time with deciding who gets on the back of my jerseys. After finally deciding to get a new Canucks jersey (Have an old whale with Ohlund on the back) it took me months to decide to go with Kesler (razz me all you want. Yes he dives, but he plays with heart & soul every dang game) . Same with my Pens jersey (went with Malkin)

Why change it. I also got a #4 Bogosian home jersey with the inaugural patch. Him changing his number is just another opportunity to get an away with #44. You own a little bit of history keep it.

Same goes for the OT. You are one of a handful of people with a Glass jersey. Just keep it and wear it proudly.

I do love my Glass jersey and am still wearing it. I got it signed last season to so I have gone back and forth with whether or not I want to change it. Definitely airing on the side of no now. Will probably just use it as an excuse to get a new one next season!

Yeah, true enuff...My # 4 does have the inaugural patch too, so it is technically and historically correct - just saved myself 80 bucks

I sit not too far from that guy. When I first saw it I thought 'cool'. I actually thought it was his wishful thinking interpreted on the jersey, especially if he got it when all the talk heated up on that awesome night when Teemu came to town, just after Carlye got canned.

Great night btw. Anyway, seeing that jersey instantly made me think, I wish that was a guy we could get...guess I'm nostalgic but I thought the jersey was ok.

If it was me, and I bought a Bogo #4 jersey last year, and if it had the inaugural season patch on it, I'd like to keep it that way. Shows you were a fan in the first year (although who wasnt?) and it will help separate the real Jets fans from the not so die-hard ones, as the die hards will know Bogo used to wear #4.

Why would anyone question someone about who they have on their jersey? 4th line GST or not, is there a rule that you must only have a superstar's numbers on your back? I think it's cool.

My wife has a Stuart jersey. She likes him. That's all... and I think it's great! She considered Slater. She likes the underdog. I wear Enstrom. I like Luke Skywalker and smurfs and players with sick flow. Everybody has their reasons.

As for a Selanne on a Jets 2.0... that's a whole other discussion.

For $300 a pop, get whoever you want.

I can understand a Selanne 2.0, think it's cool, but Gretzky destroyed the Jets as a player, and talked S**t against our city while with the Coyotes.

A Gretzky "Jets" jersey is offensive.

Might as well follow the Canadiens and Canucks, the TWO Canadian teams who voted against the Jets 1.0 joining the NHL.

IMHO as long as it's a licensed replica or authentic, put whatever you want on it, have fun.

Knock-offs IMHO look awful no matter what's on the back. Colors off, bubbly letters and logo, bad spacing of stripes, odd stitching. They look terrible even from a distance, and not only that your cash probably went to supporting a sweat shop and criminal activity instead of TNSE. I'd rather you wore the free Jets t-shirt you got from signing up for a credit card.

I've seen a few Hawerchuck jerseys with the 90's style when he never wore it. Its a bit silly but oh well.

Its not as bad as peopel who get jerseys made of other teams players. Liek a Gretzky 99 Habs jersey.

All I can say is someone with a Selanne Jets 2.0 jersey is probably loving life a lot more than someone moaning about him wearing that jersey.

Disagree. I've seen that guy and that jersey and I truly enjoy mocking both.

I also laugh heartily at the Fail compliations on youtube for similar reasons.

Jersey politics.

Reminds me of teenagers arguing over whether it's okay to wear a band shirt to their show.

the first question one has to ask is why a grown man wants to walk around with someone else's name and number on his back.
then ask: is it even more strange to put your own last name on an NHL replica jersey?

if i wore a jersey, the name and # would totally be out of irony.
i have a replica jets jersey i wear to hockey. i wear 23 for good ol' Hanuu Jaarvenpas.

This makes me laugh. You spent the money on the jersey, put whatever you damn well want on it.

That settles it. I was holding off putting "Brogosian" on the back of my jersey because I thought people would think it's a typo, but I just don't care any more. Live a little!!!

Hopefully you didn't spell it like that on the back of the jersey

Agreed, but "Brogosian" is about 17 million times cooler than a Selanne 2.0. Most, if not all, would know it was a joke and not a typo. For the non-player named customized jersey, that is an outstanding jersey.

"Hey, check out that BROgosian jersey, dude"

Hmm. I'm Asian, so maybe here is my opportunity to put 'Bro Asian' on my jersey. Number 88 of course. Double lucky!

^^^^^^^^ This.

If you get wound up about what someone puts on the back of their Jersey, you need some real things to be upset about.

Kind of makes me want to get a #85 Stegall Jets jersey

I would like to get a road white jersey and am thinking about a "Little" jersey just because I think it would be funny seeing a 6'6" 300lbs dude wearing a jersey that says "Little"

I learned this lesson in desperation on trade deadline day in 2008.

I had a white Enstrom Thrashers jersey, and my favorite forward on the team was Pascal Dupuis, so I decided to get his name on it. A couple days after I sent it out, Idiot Waddell traded Dupuis to Pittsburgh as a throw-in for the Hossa trade.

Needless to say, I called the creating company in desperation, and they asked which name I wanted instead. I said the first name that came to mind....

Eric ****ing Perrin

I could have gone with Slava Kozlov, one of Atlanta's all-time most loved players. I could have gone with Mark Recchi, a guaranteed HOF'er (The only Thrasher that will ever get that honour). Other options included Little, Kovalchuk, Hedberg, Lehtonen or Slater...but I chose Eric ****ing Perrin...
