I love them. I am ordering a Nathan Horton one because that's all I can buy right now. They're all $99 dollars right now on the NHL Shop.

Guys? Guys. No. Guys, no. Jerseys are to hockey fans what shiny red shoes are to the pope. Sacred.

Also, sometimes red.

I'm not buying anything NHL related until the Stars release their new green jerseys.

I'd probably wear one to something like hockey practice, or as an actual jersey, but for going to sporting events and such... I don't think so.

Forget the design--you're really going to send money to the league in the midst of a lockout that's canceled three month's worth of games?

Order it from eBay from a reliable shop with good reviews. Why do you guys keep throwing $ at the NHL directly? Show some restraint

I actually like the toronto one. wouldn't wear it to a game but as a poster above said, it could be useful for actually playing in.

At a glance I thought this said 'opinions on black players' and I was like Uhhh. The black jerseys are pretty lame I think. The oilers one looked stupid and it just takes away personality from the jerseys.

Honestly don't care if people like it or hate it, I really enjoy mine because it's something different that no one else has and it is a great everyday jersey that I don't have to worry about getting absolutely ruined.

I'm not a fan of wearing Burgundy, so I rarely wear an Avs Home jersey if ever and the White ones are dirt magnets, no matter how much I try to keep them pristine.

Considering picking up another one as a spare and seeing if I can get Altitude Authentics to try customizing it with another player.

Not even to mention Duchene scored a hat trick the game following my order of it.

I don't know why anyone would voluntarily buy one of these.

That's my biggest issue with them. Black really doesn't have much of a personality unless you're the Bruins or the Penguins so I'm not sure why other teams insist on wearing it.

As a casual sweater to wear around town as a fan, maybe that's a little different. I can see wearing one around, they don't look that bad, but not as something to ever replace your real home uniform.

I'm a fan of Tampa's just because we don't have a black jersey anymore, so this is the closest we can get. I don't have any intention of getting one, but my roommate got one when Stamkos scored his 50th goal (all Stamkos merch was 50% off), and it looks pretty good.

I really like some of them, and absolutely hate others. For instance, I think the Caps, Rangers and Flyers black ice jerseys are damn good looking, while the Pens, Bruins and Red Wings look like trash to me.
