Yzerman Lightning Jersey

Gross...

I saw that, too.... absolutely pointless and trying too hard.

Agreed... It's like he was fishing for a throwback, but they're too young of an organization to really have an iconic one, so he reached... and failed horribly...

Size small 1999 Lightning jersey signed by Yzerman?

Even worse.

This dude probably bought the jersey for 30 bucks, had it signed at a team hotel, and is trying to turn a quick buck.

The jersey is disgusting thumbdown.gif

so im not okay with this at all. if a lightning fan ever walked into the joe with that he wouldn't be leaving with it attached to his body.

No he would not. And it would be a beautiful thing.

Yeah, I've seen the Yzerman Lightening jersey's before. Disgusting, but still not as disgusting as this abortion of a jersey. I still think this is the foulest of all jersey fouls I've ever seen:

Don't get me wrong, that is an abomination, but I still think a jersey of a player that never played for your organization is worse... Especially when said player never played anywhere else AND is an icon there...

Just saw a post game with Stamkos on NHL network and some jackass in the crowd was wearing a #19 Yzerman Lightning Jersey... I don't care if he's their GM, that's all kinds of wrong...

At least we know it's not authentic; most sanctioned suppliers won't put names of retired players on jerseys. Still, whoever did this should have said "HELL no" when asked to make it; I don't care who they're a fan of. This is unnatural at best.

I liken this to seeing Gordie in a Whalers jersey.

Uh. A knife to the heart.

O, Stevie, why have you forsaken us?

So the problem is that someone in Tampa is a big Yzerman fan?

We had him for over 22 years as a player, and a few more in management. Can't we at least let Tampa enjoy him for a while until he comes back to replace Holland? :D

I've only once seen Yzerman wearing Lightning gear, it was an interview at traverse city he had a jacket with small lightning logo on it... It hurt to say the least :(

And they have every right to enjoy him... An abomination of a jersey is just not the way...

That's fugly. But I guess atleast Chelios played for both teams. Unlike our Iconic Yzerman has only played for the Wings.

Imagine how ugly that jersey would look if Montreal was added.

They have a place to get names on jerseys WITHIN the St. Pete. Most likely got it done there I'd imagine since it's just a production line and people wouldn't have had the time to question it. Just take the order and pass it onto the guy with the letters.

That being said I was thinking of getting a Lightning jersey with 'YZERMAN 19' on the back for my girlfriend (she's a Bolts fan), if only to subliminally subvert her to support the Wings. I'll just get her a Vinny one instead. Also, what would you say to this: I'm looking to get a Team USA Jersey with 'HOWARD 35' :D I know he hasn't played for them yet but want one.

Didn't he play for US for juniors? I'm pretty sure he did, so that ones OK, but only under those circumstances... A jersey of a player where they never played is never ok...

Came across this picture, created for a Lightning-fan on another forum.

Great manipulation, but the whole thing just makes me sick..

I wish I never saw this. Had to remove it from the quote.

This is wrong.... Isn't it breaking some sort of law or something? If its not then it should be!
