Anyone else with insight on other teams?
Phoenix has the "Coyotes Den"

Vancouver has "The Canucks Team Store", including a few outlets in downtown Vancouver apart from the arena.

Columbus has "The Blueline", also I'm hoping the one guy's source is right and the blue for the Jets is royal, I prefer a lighter blue.

Once the Jersey is released I/m sure you can get one here... The one place you would think would have the Jerseys is NHL.com
Was thinking that, but in-store would be quicker and easier, plus if NHL.com does have any in stock right away, im sure theyd quickly get sold out. Whatever method becomes easier once the merch is released is what ill go for

I like royal blue. I was pleasantly surprised when the Bombers had their 70s retro week and would be equally excited if the colour was in the Jets jerseys.

NHL.com's jersey customization is the insanely lame and cheap silk screen names and numbers.

If you want the straight jersey, it's fine. Otherwise, stay away.

I'm happy with my Team Canada jersey from NHL.COM. It was customized, stitched on lettering and numbers, not silk screen. I'm pretty sure all their customization is stitched lettering and numbers? I mean it should be, it adds $70 onto the cost of the jersey.

I think he means when you go to NHL.Com and order a t-shirt or sweater with custom lettering on it. They silk screen the letters/numbers onto it, which just means it's like a latex paint on the fabric.

For the replica or authentic jerseys though, they stitch the numbers and letters on, using the appropriate materials. They're fine, the quality is exactly the same as any jersey that was produced with a pre-determined player on it.

It goes without saying to avoid knock-offs. I've owned several, from different sources, NFL and NHL, and the stitching is sloppy and often goes in/out of the letter/number borders, the numbers often aren't flat and bubble up, things are slightly misaligned, letters unevenly spaced, tags are only half stitched on, colors are off, and they use inferior materials.

Anything less than $120 is probably a knock-off. Most of the stuff on Ebay is a knock-off. You probably can't spot a knock-off from 30 feet away but after awhile you can spot one closer than that, and they just look terrible, and you end up looking cheap. The real deal jerseys have pristine stitching and alignment, stiff numbers and letters, and spot-on colors.

Even the best knock-offs have several flaws, and I don't buy them anymore. Don't be fooled by tags or holograms: knock off shops have access to all those.

They might have just changed it, actually.

I remember others reporting, and me reading before I was about to order a jersey that the numbers and name would be "silk-screened", so I cancelled my order.

Yep, the custom jerseys are great. It's expensive ($80 + cost of a blank jersey), so don't bother if you're going to get a popular player on the back.

I will guess that Ladd, Kane, and Byfuglien jerseys will probably be readily available in stores. It wouldn't make much sense to order a custom Ladd jersey for and get essentially the exact same product for a higher price.

Burmistrov, however...probably not so common...

Ah, it probably depends on the type of jersey you order:

The Landing Strip is a fine beverage serving establishment by the Toronto airport. It is like walking into a Playboy magazine.

We can be like Pittsburgh and have continuity in the cities big sport teams colour branding. Blue for how big and blue our open skies are in the city landscape, and the gold could be representative of the golden boy. I'm in! Great idea!

yeah they changed it. Last time they had free customization I remember telling people to be cautious.. when they recieved their jerseys they were fine - turns out nhl used coolhockey.com for the customization. Coolhockey is great - got a couple jerseys from them and their perfect.

I feel you can get a little crazier and less traditional when it comes to concepts for minor-league teams.
Definitely. Love the Robo-Griffin for the minors, but it would be beyond miserable for the NHL.

Tradition is so hard to find in the minors. The rare teams that have them are quite welcome to stay with/keep going with simpler/classy designs (Rochester Amerks for one...Hershey up until their re-design was glorious, even with that stupid bear logo the jerseys are simplistic and nice)...but that tradition just isn't there when minor league teams skip around so often. The quirky teams are often the ones that sell their brand the best...and profits can be tough to come by in the minors. I doubt any serious baseball mind in Albuquerque wanted their minor league club to be named after a Simpsons episode...but Albuquerque Isotopes is a far more marketable name than the Albuquerque Dukes ever could have been.

That's how you get stuff like the Montgomery Biscuits.

As far as the talk about who will be selling Jerseys. I've been informed by the head manager at Sportchek polo park that they are getting in 500 plus replica jerseys ranging in price range. I took a look at the moose replicas they have and compared it to the authenitc ones I have. Considering the authentic are like 300 bucks, the replicas are a great value. Either way I might be getting mine from NHL.com

I was going back and forth as to which player to get.

So, I ask you, if I were to get Steen (25) on a new Jets jersey, is that a crime against the hockey gods? Pass or fail?

You need the right era jersey to go with the name IMO

I might get a Hull 9 if Kane wears it.

Fail, even Hull and Hawerchuk on the Jets jersey of the 90's seems like a fail to me as they never wore that style of jersey. If you want to stand out get a Stapleton Jets jersey.

If enough people got a jersey with 'Suter' on it....would he have no choice but to "be nice and sign in Winnipeg" next year?
