You lucky f***
No way, I have a jersey collection, I love hockey jerseys but that doesn't take away from my ridiculous obsession with the Red Wings. And I dont ever pay full price for my jerseys, I look for deals on eBay
Red Wings- Yzerman
Red Wings Winter Classic- Zetterberg
Lightning 3rd- Stamkos
Blackhawks (1992 Vintgae)- Chelios
Kings (1988 Purple and Gold)- Robitaille
Team Czech Republic
and I just got a dark Mighty Ducks Jersey, no name on it but I'm thinking of putting Salei on there.
Some of them are authentic some aren't, either way, I love hockey jerseys.
Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

HOWEVER... when it comes to NHL teams, I'm a hockey player and well rounded in who's who on the other teams around the league. But I would NEVER, EVER wear any other colors than the Detroit Red Wings and and their farm club. My favorite jersey is still my game-worn Griffins #5 Kronwall jersey. Between Griffins and Red Wings jerseys, that's where I draw the line. You can't say I'm ignorant or a homer, because I live and breathe hockey and have very good knowledge of all other teams in the league, but you can't pay me to put a Chicago jersey, or Philly, San Jose, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, etc... It's the Red Wings, it has been since I've been since about 5 years old. Same goes for the Lions, Pistons and Tigers.
I guess what I'm saying is, when it comes to pro teams in my state, I embrace them and NO other team. Those others teams can piss off. Minor league hockey is, in my opinion an exception because, well, it's minor league. But it's Red Wings (Griffins) or nothing as far as apparel at the NHL, hands down.

I got picked up by a beer league team and their jerseys are just like san jose. I can not stand wearing those socks and that jersey. I don't even like having it in my house. But thats how I get down. If you want other teams gear, go for it.
I love it!!

Also it's just what you like. I'm English, but when I was over to the US recently my girlfriend bought me a Michigan Wolverines cap as I love the colours and the 'M' logo. Don't really know anyone from there, and I know the Michigan players on the Wings roster are mainly (if not solely) Spartans, but just love that blue and gold. Also means I can support a state that I like rather than just one pro sports team.
Also want a Tebow jersey from the Gators, as I do believe he is a prophet.

I needed to get a black jersey for development league I'm playing in so I got last years Bolts jersey with Vinny on the back. It's a nice jersey but I much prefer it when I'm on the red team so I can wear my Zetty jersey with pride!
I'd get a Lightning jersey if it had Vinny on the back
I should add that I got the Vinny jersey at a very nice clearance price of 50% off otherwise I would have got a plain black Warrior jersey for $30 from the pro shop lol.

I just remind folks that my beloved Detroit Red Wings are by far my #1 team...That said there's a distant 2nd team known as the Toronto Maple Leafs that I root for, and yes - I have 4 Leaf jerseys from different eras, and it's not wrong to admit liking Wendel Clark.
Fellow LGW brethren,
I am in need of some honest opinions here. Although I am a huge Detroit Red Wings fan, I do not limit myself to watching only Wings games. I've got Center Ice, so I follow everything that's going on around the league, and although I enjoy Detroit games the most, I consider myself a fan of the NHL in general, as well. My question is this: Am I betraying our beloved Detroit Red Wings by purchasing merchandise of another team, or am I just being a "well-rounded" hockey fan? Do any of you guys/gals have merchandise (Jerseys, etc.) Of other teams? Thanks in advance for your advice.
Bring Back The Bruise Bros
EDIT - back in 2002 I was hoping/praying for a Red Wings/Maple Leafs Cup Finals...IMHO it would've been alot closer, and a ton more intense/interesting had the Leafs faced the Wings.

I have a friend who is a fan of the Blackhawks and Red Wings, and owns stuff for both teams. Although we do give him crap about it, it's all in good fun

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

I don't have a Crosby or Kane shirt on my list I've got a list of players' shirts or jerseys that I refuse to get. Kane, Crosby, Malkin, Chara, and Pronger are included. Some girls can pull off a baseball cap, so don't eliminate that possibility just because you're a girl
I wouldn't judge you. Well, okay, I'd probably judge you for certain jerseys, such as a Hawks sweater with Kane on the back or a Pens one with Crosby. But most of the time, it doesn't bother me. I bought a Lightning hat at the Draft last year because I was excited for Stevie, but I never wear it (partly because of Wings fanaticism, partly because I'm a girl and can't pull off the baseball cap look). Also, I don't have one, but I'd love to get a Tim Thomas t-shirt, and you bet I'd wear it.
