    Are the Adidas "authentic" versions on NHL.com and Fanatics.com the versions worn by the players on the ice. I bought an Adidas "authentic" from Dick's during a sale and LUNDQVIST and the 30s were all like plastic like. Currently both Dick's and NHL/Fanatics sell "authentic" jerseys for the same price.

    The customization is the same way it was for the old Reebok premier jerseys which were the replicas. Aside from the customization, the jerseys themselves aren't the on ice versions. They're made in Indonesia while the adidas on ice jerseys are made in Canada and the difference in quality is astronomical, even bigger than the old IndoEDGE and Canadian EDGE jerseys. The only way to get your hands on an actual on ice jersey is to buy a game used or team issued jersey at this point. Some sneak through the cracks here and there via eBay but they aren't being produced for retail at the moment and who knows if that'll change.

    Yeah I am pretty upset that they aren't releasing more MICs. The way I see it, Adidas should have and could have went with the way Nike does NFL. You have the bottom tier which is the fanatics/nike where it's the jersey, but casual with the sublimated/screenprint numbers/1 layer, then the in-between (forgot what Nike calls it) which really is where Indodidas is. Not on-ice, but has at least 1 layer of stitching and a better material/fight strap (or what the replica version is), then the full authentic on ice/field version, the MIC priced about the same as an Edge 2.0. Would honestly make perfect sense.

    I think it's crappy that give "authentics" being peddled by Adidas are basically replicas. Single layer screenprint stitched on the jersey. That's not authentic.

    Gonna post this here too, but seems like AW's contact page is broken. Do they still customize for fans?

    I got a few CCM and Starters I would like done (done right, and especially the Liberty because places cheap out on letters and cuts)... do they still take fan work? If not, does the NHL store still send to them?

    I'm obviously no lawyer, but I still wonder if there's legal action available for anyone with proof of purchase for trying to pass it off as a more expensive authentic when its really no more authentic than the fanatic brand shirts...at least to have Adidas recall these, make the ones they wear and trade the premier authentic things for the ones they wear. Like every brand did before Adidas disappointed anyone who cares about these things LOL.

    hello,
    the adidas not customized retails at $180. sportsk has them new, direct from adidas for $125. you could get aftermarket sewing for about $75. good luck

    To be fair, Adidas announced that none of the teams would get a 3rd jersey last year because it was the first year and they focused on just home and away, but we got a 3rd jersey anyway because we played in the Winter Classic.

    To see other teams get a 3rd jersey now seems only fair.
