  1. Unfortunately, it seems like forums just don't appeal to the younger crowd. We've shifted from organizing content to simply throwing thoughts out there, consuming it, then throwing away again. That's all Discord is - a stream of thought conversation. It's almost impossible to actually save information. Reddit, on the other hand, is a tell-me-again platform. From what I've used of it, generally it's the same questions/answers getting posted again and again and again (and no one will search). On a forum, that type of behavior is discouraged. I haven't been too active here recently
  2. Given that it's the people you never heard of or hardly post, I'm guessing it's people who don't have much of a collection (and cannot afford it). Therefore, their aim is to drive the market down to where they can enter.
  3. It also makes me question the lengths some of us in this hobby go to get everything exact to what the players wore on the ice. After all, no one's (presumably) disassembling and resewing a Crosby jersey to get it perfect. Of course, fonts and sizes are much different than the fit of a jersey (which may not be as visible/easily noticed).
  4. For those of you who may not have caught it on NHL.com, here's a little insight into Pro Knitwear: https://www.nhl.com/penguins/video/how-its-made-reverse-retro/t-277443440/c-7547253?fbclid=IwAR1XebktmnWKn4E0LBL6cVDcjmTryYtA5l4qb_QqF8gx7ZkxHaTy5bkmKdo
  5. After missing every other game, I finally got to see the gold medal game. I know the jersey material has been talked about before on here, but it looked like everyone was wearing colored garbage bags during the medal presentation.
  6. There is a history....just very different in how it's viewed. Caps see the Pens as a rival, but not the other way around, since the caps have lost to the Pens in all meaningful games. (No, the WC doesn't count...that's just a glorified regular season match.)
  7. I guess I can update this with Consol Energy Center (Pens) and the United Center (Blackhawks).
  8. Their email is cuttingedgesport@aol.com, or at least it was when I got a jersey done by them about eight months ago.
  9. Seems like RCS is just trying to save some money, since they'd be responsible for shipping both ways again. Maybe take it to get it cleaned, and get documentation from the dry cleaners in case the stain doesn't come out, that way you can still send it back? And keep documentation of all your dealings with RCS in the matter in case they try to back out. Just a thought anyway. Sending the jersey back is probably the least stressful option in case something goes wrong. Speaking of which, you should probably bring that up to RCS before doing anything as well.
  10. I know what you mean, although I'm rooting for Finland so I thought it was hilarious how the Russian goalie just stared at him after. I would hate to see the game decided on that goal though. Here's the video:
  11. Since we didn't have a thread about the tournament yet, I figured I'd start one...mainly to discuss Mikael Grandlund's goal today (although it'll be a catch-all thread for any other discussions). I hope I'm not the only one to see it, but I'm sure it'll be on the highlights tonight. It was the first goal in the Finland - Russia game. Pretty incredible for a kid to try that in the semifinals! No video yet :/
  12. I think it's more that the NHL didn't want to suspend key players that could determine the results of the whole series instead of just one game, since both would be game 7's. Which, seems to have been the case most of the year with the exception of the Cooke suspension.
  13. Wow, just got two jerseys back from there not too long ago and was getting ready to send two more out. Thanks for the heads up!
  14. Having known the rule, but not the actual language it was written in, I had always assumed it was the way the refs called it in that game. Black and white. Unless you or the opponent plays the puck, it's a hand pass. However, the rulebook does allow for that grey area, a refs discretion which would apply in your in-game scenario. Going by the rules, it probably shouldn't have been called. But, like I said, the refs tend to make it a black and white case and call it as such. Personally, I think that the phrasing in the rulebook should change and just make it black and white. I hate whe
