    As a Canucks fan, I am disgusted by this. This is a downgrade and bring back the stripes! This organization seems to find ways to put a zit on the face or the dent in the car of what could be a super uniform. Looks good but always has blemishes which can drive one crazy.

    I find it very odd there are that many rules and restrictions on placing an add patch on your jersey. I would not do this myself but I know some people like to have a jersey as authentic as possible and it seems like a lot of hoops to jump through.

    From a uni-only perspective, I like the pants better without stripes. Makes the overall uni feel more balanced while being less cluttered, especially with the thick stripe at the bottom of the jersey and the striped socks creating balance.

    If you scroll down to the faq about the bruins patch it states that it cannot be applied to replica jerseys only authentic. But what is “authentic” as all retail jerseys are Indonesian made so aren’t authentic anyways. And what constitutes a replica?
