    Default Which NHL Jersey to get

    I have a 46 point lead in a 20 box pool I entered along with 150 other people. The 2nd place team has 11 different players then me so with a week to go, I am getting very close to winning the league. The top prize is an NHL jersey of my choice. I am wondering which NHL jersey/player to get. I am an Oilers fan but do not want an Oilers jersey as I live in Edmonton and I already have one of them. Being an Oiler fan also means no Flames and no Canucks. I also have a Thrashers' Kovalchuk, a NY Rangers' Shanahan, a Ducks' Pronger, and a Blue Jackets non-personalized jersey so I do not want any of those teams. I would prefer to get a jersey of a player that is going to be with the team for at least a few more years (impossible to predict I know but going by reasonable chance).

    Which team, which make (home, away, 3rd), which player should I get?

    (If I choose to get a Wild jersey, I could likely get it signed by the player in question due to a connection of mine)

    Take the money and burn it instead. I love NHL hockey and I still watch games but they still owe me half a season's worth of hockey. No purchases for this guy!

    If you aren't a hardliner though get something that won't conflict with Edmonton fandom, so someone from the East. I think Karlsson makes a sneaky good choice that you might not think of right away but that's still got north-of-the-border conflict potential so instead how about a Stamkos?

    It will be impossible to answer because ultimately it's a personal preference. Given the parameters you listed I'd say you have 3 choice.

    1. Get a Wild Jersey-Having a signed jersey is pretty cool whether you display it or not. I'm not a huge fan of theirs but I do like the cougar(?) head with the red and green horizon thing. As far as name Parise and Suter are the studs and you know they'll be there for a long while. I'd pick Parise.

    2. Pick your favourite Player- Pick your favourite player from throughout the league. Guys who I think will be with their current team for a while include: Ovechkin, Crosby, Stamkos, Giroux, Getzlaf, Perry, Sedins, Tavares. Obviously the list is lengthy. Penguins and Flyers are the only jerseys I like on this list and I'd probably go with a Crosby skating Penguin one.

    3. Pick your favourite Jersey - Again totally personal opinion I'm biased towards the following sweaters: Canadiens red, Bruins classic, Blackhawks red, Red Wings red, Maple Leafs(cringe) blue. So yeah the original 6 (minus Rangers you already have) I think they're all pretty classic to look at. If picking one I'd go: Subban, Seguin, Toews, Zetterburg, Kessel on the back.

    Let us know if you win and what you end up getting!

    If you can get a Wild jersey signed by Parise or Suter that would be sick! If not, go with your favourite player that doesn't play on the Oilers.

    Signed Parise jersey, or Karlsson third jersey (striped one) - entertaining player, will be on team forever

    Another idea is to get an old school retro jersey (no worries about player getting traded). Here is a good link.

    I'd personally get a Kaner jersey in red. Coincidentally, the exact one in fungchen's avatar above haha.

    Love those red Hawks jerseys... timeless IMO.

    My second choice would be a blue Stammer jersey... love the look of that one as well, but not as huge a fan of their logo (kinda tacky).

    Kings white Doughty Jersey is pretty sick. If your not opposed to the Leafs 8 think there new jerseys are the best looking in the league.

    If new school, I'd go with Karlsson (3rd) or Pietrangelo (3rd).

    Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. Right now I am leaning towards one of the following (in no particular order):

    Stamkos Home Blue
    Tavares Home Blue
    Doughty Road White
    Couture Road White
    Bergeron Home Black
    Brodin 3rd
    Suter 3rd
    Parise 3rd


    My lead has expanded to 53 points after last night's games so I am getting closer to having to make a decision.
