I wear a Georgia Bulldogs hockey Jersey or a University of Las Vegas Jersey in my pick up league.

No looks at all.

Don't think any of the guys wear an NHL jersey. Maybe the NHL style, but no crest.

The people who wear the tinted visor IMO look much worse then the people just wearing a NHL jersey.

One reason we dont see many Full NHL replica and authentics could be the cost. My Authentic Sabres Hasek ran 350.ooUS so its quite a bit of coin to be wearing for pick up. Full kit replicas run almost 200...uncrested are around 75.ooUS here in the buffalo area

I wear a game worn Nordiques practice jersey from the early 90s. Picked it up off the Bay for 60 bucks... I get a lot of compliments (I guess because it fits into the 'retro' fashion)

Honestly, any number you wear is going to be safe. IF you came across 1 in 10,000 who would have any issue with a specific number I would be surprised. I wouldnt be one bit concerned about what number you choose to wear.

yeah, i mean they are numbers. if anyone cares that much about the number you wear its their problem. i wore 9 through highschool in roller hockey, no one really cared i dont think. as long as you dont act like a tool i wouldnt worry.

It seems like people are careful not to wear NHL or minor league jerseys.
I see a lot of guys wearing minor league (or more often, rec league jerseys from their team) jerseys around here, but not many NHL ones. I wore a Blues jersey for a while when I started ice hockey, and never got razzed for it.

Any opinions?
Wear it and play your game. The good/smart players will figure out you're wearing it because you like the Rangers, not because you think you're the next Leetch or Jagr. The stupid players you shouldn't care about anyway.

the one place where i found it, was, IIRC, to the east of the main square by a few blocks. It wasn't so much a store, but the place where you go to buy tickets to all the sporting events in the city. they had a jersey in the window, and i asked if they sell them there, and she said yes, they have a few to sell, so thats where i got mine.
