I think I'll wait out the "Olympic Fever" and buy one for $9.99 from the bargain bin.

No, they had to change the crest because of a stupid IOC ruling. This should be the design pretty much from now on.
I don't like the separation between the 2 stripes - they are too far apart.

The cheapest I'd expect these to drop would be ~50% off.

Too bad they're made by Nike :(

Wow $400 for authentic! Who are they trying to kid!
Even the replicas are pretty expensive.

I don't like the new design either.

You can get the OLD replicas from like, Sport Chek usually for like under ~$80 and practice jerseys for ~$20

Seriously. Who's paying $400 for a jersey you can wear for 2 weeks?

Why is the inside of the maple leaf not solid red? It looks kinda smudgy. I wished they used the old maple leaf logo from their alternate jerseys.

I don't know about Olympic jerseys, but NHL jerseys are the same price.

Definitely doesn't belong under hot deals. It's not even luke-warm.

Those are ugly. The old one looked far better. You can't even see the design on the leaf unless you're up really close. The design makes it look even worse.

That's what I was thinking. What does native art have to do with hockey anyways? I don't get the connection...

It was more like Hockey Canada being stubborn.

There's actually pictures inside the leaf. It's some native designs. You can see a close up of the leaf @ http://www.cbc.ca/sports/story/2009/08/ ... rseys.html
wow, i didn't like it at first but that makes it pretty neat... still not gonna shell out any kind of money for anything but the 1976 design :)
