  1. Same reason why the Sabres used a fauxback third for the first year of the Buffaslugs.
  2. It's still too plain but it looks a lot better in person.
  3. They still have to factor in Hossa's cap hit for cap compliance purposes prior to the beginning of the season. They can't put him on LTIR until the season starts.
  4. There's gray trim on the road collar.
  5. IT'S NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT A PLAYER HAS BEEN STASHED ON LTIR! THIS IS NOT A RULE BEING BENT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE BLACKHAWKS!
  6. This isn't the first time that a player has ended their career on LTIR so stop acting like the league is bending the rules just to help the Hawks. Besides, they can't put him on LTIR until the season starts so they still have to deal with his cap hit to be cap compliant for the start of the season. Also, Hossa had a NMC so he had to be protected.
  7. It makes perfect sense. The Reebok Edge jerseys were made in three tiers. There were the Premiers, which were the replicas. The Fanatics replicas will replace them. Then there were the so-called "Indo-Edges," which were made in Indonesia and were halfway between being a replica and an authentic. The Adidas jerseys with the button, which will also be made in Indonesia, will replace those. Then there were the Canadian-made authentics. Those were almost identical to the on-ice product with a couple of small differences. As of right now, there have been multiple indications that Adidas will be making the Canadian-made authentics available to the general public. However, given that some online sellers (such as the legendary Jersey Baron) have been able to get their hands on team-issued jerseys (which are the on-ice product, just blank without the teams' respective names/numbers added) which I assume weren't intended to be released to the public (though if they truly weren't, I'm sure Reebok would have put the kibosh on people selling them a long time ago) so I'm sure that the Canadian-made jerseys will make their way to the market eventually. As of right now, though, it looks like the only way that people will be able to get Canadian-made Adidas authentics will be to buy game-issued or game-worn jerseys.
  8. Minnesota's shoulder patch was first used on their Stadium Series jerseys.
  9. That assumes that the Canadian authentics are available at retail. A lot of indications are that they won't be.
  10. Understandable. I don't pretend to speak for all Flames fans, seeing as though I'm not one.
  11. While I would have preferred that the Flames get rid of the Edge jerseys, going to the retro would have been a step in the wrong direction. The pre-Edge jerseys were the best look the Flames have ever had. Just get rid of the flaming snot shoulder stripe and they'd be perfect.
  12. Ten years, IIRC. The Edge jerseys lasted the exact same amount of time.
  13. Hi there.
  14. On the bright side, they're still one of the more conservative designs, as they should be.
  15. White and that shade of gold don't blend well when placed right next to each other.
