Looks like the NHL has bounced back from the lockout. And jersey/logo redesigns are good for business, no matter their quality.

I can attest to the Oilers stuff being hot. I was trying to get a Youth Oilers jersey for my nephew. In Edmonton, I checked all the official Oilers merchandisers in town, plus any other generic sporting goods store and none had any. At the game I found one.. just one youth L jersey. In the entire city. A year ago, if you walked into a sporting goods store, you'd be tripping over them!

People are just trying to get the good jerseys before RBK ****s everything up for next season. That's all it means.

And for the record, I think anyone who buys a hockey jersey from NHL is an idiot. I found a place that sells the exact same jerseys with customizing that run $20 to $30 bucks cheaper.

Does anyone out there own one of the current practice jerseys that are form-fitting, if so how well do they fit you. I'm tempted to wait until next season to get a Lightning jersey and was wondering how they felt and fit.

I've tried on the RBK "swift" practise jerseys. (I would heartily buy a Ducks one if it was available here). While made of a different material, they fit exactly the same as a regular polyester NHL replica of the same size. (Although that silver piping that runs down the sleeves is more like a long strip of reflective plastic.) If you want a comparison of each jersey style, just use the zoom feature on icejerseys.com.

IMO, the blue Leafs practise jersey is one of the best Leafs jerseys I've seen period.
