I remember Steve Yzerman night being pretty long, maybe an hour and a half?  I'd say get there 2 hours before to be safe.


In Topic: Hockeytown authentics is not really authentic

01 January 2014 - 10:17 AM

Ugh, Reeeeebok!!!!!  I knew this was going to happen sooner or later.  I haven't shopped for a jersey in a while, but when looking for a winter classic authentic I ran into the Indonesian made "authentic" edge jerseys (indo-edge).  I wouldn't mind if they dropped the price on these, but they're still charging a premium.  And as stated above, they market them as "what the pros wear" which is a lie.

 

You used to be able to get a real good quality replica back in the day, when CCM, Koho, Nike, etc made them.  Materials were nice, constructions was great, and they last forever.  Reebok replicas are not as nice, with thin material.  Looks like the authentics are going down the same path.

 

There are still ways to get authentic Edge 2.0 jerseys just like the team wears, some Canadian shops sell them. Frozen Pond had them, but they look to be sold out.  You can get the regular team jersey though: http://www.frozenpon...ey-jerseys.html

 

It's Canadian made, and is the exact item they're going to wear on the ice.


In Topic: 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Wish I was going to this one :confused:   I would have been there if they had it last year, but now I have responsibilities, other things to spend money on, blah blah blah.

 

Hope everyone who's at the game has a blast, looks like the weather will be perfect for an outdoor game.

You can't create drama. I think that episode nothing really even happened so yeah it was kinda boring. Still pretty cool. They should have shown something about how the plywood was put up in Florida would have been funny

 

True, but that's what a good producer/editor does.  They should be able to take boring material and make it interesting.  I enjoyed the episode, just thought it fell flat.

I was underwhelmed by the episode.  I felt like HBO was just calling it in with this one, going through the motions.  About half way through the toaster scene, I was like "CAN WE PLEASE MOVE ON??"

 

 

If anyone has not seen the episode, the full episode is on NHL.com

Why do I even pay for HBO.........
