Hey all, first post here :)  long time lurker.

 

I noticed in the exhibition games the names on the back of the jersies go straight across, but I always remember that they arc.  Are these exhibition jersies or did they just make a change?

Just preseason. Easier to stitch.

The arc is a ***** to sew for the equipment managers so they tend to save those for the roster players, nameplates are easy so they use those in the pre-season

Beats duct tape and magic marker, which would be really easy.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

every year this question gets asked :) its cheaper to sew these names on the jersey than the fancy ones that take a lot of time to get right. Consider the sheer number of players we had up to start the preseason and the number of jerseys that would have to be made for them all.

No worries.  It's become sort of an inadvertent LGW tradition, so I'm glad you asked!

Quite so!  In fact, it's become a drinking game.  Those of us who participate will thank you once we're sober enough to type.

 

In other words, you are far from alone.  :D

Nope Exhibition Jerseys are all ways like that will change to regular ones at the start of the season
