The tale of how I got it goes like this, and it shows how Prooch caught a lot of people by surprise last season.

Meigray sell Rangers game worn jerseys, and last season, the pre-season jerseys where being used in the first few weeks of the regular season as well. So not as many jerseys where available. But cos Prooch wanted a different number when he made the team, they had his 2 pre-season jerseys to sell. And I snapped one up at a time there was not much call for them. They where on Meigrays website for a while with no buyer! I got it at a reasonable price for a game worn - basically cost me not much more than if I'd bought a pro jesey and got it professionally crested with name and numbers.

It wasn't till later in the season, that Meigray realised how big a star Prooch was gonna be that season, and upped the prices of the jerseys. So noway could I have ever afforded one, so I count meself lucky to snag his pre-season jersey when I did!

By all accounts, I think it's staying the same this year but I'm not a fan.

Does anyone know definatively if this dark/home, light/road is facet of Bettman's new NHL?
I believe I read somewhere that the road whites (home whites sounds so much better) was a change put in place to help the equipment manager of the away team - that way the team only has to travel with one set of jerseys, rather than bringing third jerseys too..

That would make alot of sense. That way you'll never run into the problem of having similar jersey colors.

Thats cool man, again to show how little most people payed attention to Prucha early on in the season. I had no idea he even wore #58. Nice find

I have a Red Wings sweater. Two. Ew.

I respect the legacy, not the team!

But I find it hard to hate the Red Wings anymore with the salary cap in place.
