  1. You want us wearing one of the least popular away kits in our history? Are you by any chance a Liverpool supporter?
  2. Found a 1980's style Calgary Flames white jersey at Value Village yesterday. Score.
  3. They did. White only with red and green trim (no blue), diagonal stripe like Halifax or the Mighty Ducks used to have. Cartoony logo of a plane and the Ambassador Bridge. Pics here, one of the guys is wearing it: http://s202.photobucket.com/albums/aa182/O...l%20Cup%202009/ Incidentally, I know a fair bit about OHL jerseys and such, feel free to email me through ohlarenaguide.com or send me a PM. Email's probably faster. The Knights page is incorrect as well, I tried correcting it once upon a time but apparently nothing was done.
  4. Just make sure that the letters weren't heat-pressed on in addition to being sewn on or it might leave a gluey residue. I had to do major surgery on my Team Canada soccer jersey ($3.99 at VV) to get some random dink's name off it. I kept his number 5 but changed the NOB to Jason de Vos. So far I have been pretty lucky. After I remove the lettering and numbers I run it through the gentle cycle 2 or 3 times and the "ghost" of the old name and numbers are gone! Has anybody had success removing the Starter logo from a hockey jersey seleve or the new RBK logo of a new Edge jersey? -Dan It really just depends on the jersey. I've used dichloromethane (thanks to a suggestion of a CCSLCer, don't try this at home, kids) to remove heat-pressed vinyl letters from three jerseys before. Two turned out fine and one left a horrible glue that won't come off no matter what I do to it. I'm planning to get it professionally lettered with the same number and a nameplate to cover the residue, but it's one of those "waiting until money grows on trees" projects. Still worth it though, it was a vintage Swift Current Broncos jersey. Getting back on the thread topic, I haven't found much lately at thrift shops apart from a Mighty Ducks white late-90's alternate jersey for $13. It's unfortunately a 2XL but my best friend was happy to have it.

  6. In a nutshell, a new owner bought the team who knew and cared nothing about hockey, and wanted to put his own "stamp" on the team.
  7. This abomination, used between 1992-2002.... Not to nitpick (ok, yes to nitpick) but they used those from the start of the 1994-95 season to February of 2002.
  8. In my perfect world the Oil Kings exist exactly as they do right now.
  9. Wasn't there some talk a few years back about the WHL returning to Victoria? Would Victorians prefer the WHL or the AHL? Obviously the WHL was never going to be an option for Abbotsford, being so close to Chilliwack and Vancouver.
  10. Haven't actually got it yet, bought on eBay. I'll let you know.
  11. Here's the situation. About a year ago I found a thrift store gem - a red Chicago Blackhawks jersey with Jeremy Roenick's #27 on the back, full and accurate customization, and a Stanley Cup centennial patch from 1992-93. For $10. Sweet, right? Well, yes... except the previous owner happened to install the French version of the patch, and so it says "Coupe Stanley" instead of Stanley Cup. So what I'd like to do - I just ordered an NHL 75th anniversary patch from eBay, and I'm planning to remove the 1992-93 French patch and have the NHL 75 put on instead, since the Hawks made the Cup final in 1991-92 anyway. Then, I'm going to have the French patch put on a Habs jersey, since they won the Cup that year and the language will match. The problem is that the Centennial patch has been on the Hawks jersey for a long time and I'm worried it won't come off properly. It's not glued on, but the plastic backing on the patch is sticky, and when you pull at the fabric behind the patch it sticks a little bit. I don't want to remove the patch from the Hawks jersey if it's not going to come off cleanly. Any advice? Should I remove it, and if I do and there's residue, is there any way to get that residue out?
  12. Those two sentences have never been used together before.
  13. Doug Gilmour rookie card, traded away for nothing special when I was 9. At least the guy I traded it to doesn't have it anymore either.
  14. #1 according to who? I've only ever seen Victor Hedman and John Tavares slotted 1-2. By next year he means 2010. Hall is rated #1 for that draft right now.
