Reebok Authentic NHL Jerseys

Vintage Hockey Jerseys are starting to make a big comeback. When the NHL 3rd jerseys were released last year, you may have noticed that a lot of the jerseys werent necessarily new, but rather retro hockey jerseys from years past. Vintage hockey jerseys in the NHL began their latest popularity run when the Outdoor Winter Classics started. In the first outdoor game, the Edmonton Oilers and Montreal Canadians played in Edmonton. Worn that day were Vintage Montreal Canadians jerseys and vintage Edmonton Oilers jerseys.

The next Winter Classic saw the Penguins play the Sabers. In that game, you saw the Pittsburgh Penguins vintage blue jerseys and the Buffalo Sabers vintage hockey jerseys. The next year it was the Red Wings against the Blackhawks donning their retro hockey jerseys. This last year we watched a couple of Eastern Conference teams duke it out, wearing vintage Philadelphia Flyers jerseys and vintage Boston Bruins hockey jerseys.

I am sure this tradition will roll on, especially now that a lot of teams are wearing vintage 3rd hockey jerseys. Check out a few of them below.

NHL 2009 3rd Round Playoff Predictions – NHL Conference Divsion Finals

May 15th, 2009 | Posted by admin in nhl playoffs | 1 Comment

NHL Interactive

The 2009 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs have now gone through 2 exciting rounds. After the 2nd round, we are now left with 4 teams remaining, competing for a chance to fight for the Stanley Cup. The Eastern Conference Finals will be played exclusively between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes. The Western Conference Division Finals has the #2 ranked Detroit Red Wings playing against a young Chicago Blackhawks team. The 2009 3nd Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs should be filled with some great matchups and some exciting hockey. I will offer my 2009 Conference Finals round Playoff predictions below, and I will also add my Stanley Cup Finals predictions as well, and we’ll see how well my predictions fare. Stay tuned to updates for the NHL Playoffs as well as NHL draft news by subscribing to the Ultimate Hockey Warrior:

Western Conference Final NHL Playoff 3nd Round MatchUps

2. Detroit Red Wings (defeated Ducks 4-3)
4. Chicago Blackhawks (defeated Canucks 4-2)

The Red Wings are coming off a hard-fought matchup with the Anaheim Ducks. They are getting a lot of scoring from Franzen as well as their character players.  The Hawks took down two Canadian teams, the Canucks and Flames.  The Hawks are getting scoring from all 4 lines and are being backstopped by Khabibulin, one of the best goalies in the NHL. The Red Wings are well-coached and experienced and have the edge in the series over a very young Blackhawks team.

I see this game going 6 games. The Detroit Red Wings will win the 2008 NHL Playoff Western Conference Final 4-2

Eastern Conference Final NHL Playoff 3nd Round MatchUps

4. Pittsburgh Penguins (defeated Capitals 4-3)
6. Carolina Hurricanes (defeated Bruins 4-3)

The Penguins and the Hurricanes both had long, hard-fought series. The Penguins matched up against a tough Capitals team last round before they blew out the Caps in game 7. The Hurricanes beat the #1 seed Bruins with a brand of tough hockey and timely scoring. The Hurricanes are not making any mistakes when they find themselves with a good scoring chance. These two teams will match up well against each other in terms of speed and physical play. Crosby and Malkin put the Penguins overtop and will lead the Penguins to victory. The Penguins will win in 6 games.

NHL 2009 2nd Round Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions

April 28th, 2009 | Posted by admin in nhl playoffs | 1 Comment

NHL Interactive

The 2009 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs have made it through the 1st round with some surprise upsets and some sound beatings, including the reigning Stanley Cup champs, the Detroit Red Wings manhandling the Blue Jackets in the 1st round. The 2009 2nd Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs should be filled with some great matchups and some exciting hockey.  My picks went 5-3 in the 1st round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.  I offer my 2009 2nd round Playoff predictions below, and my 3rd round predictions and Stanley Cup Final predictions as well will follow, so we’ll see how well my predictions fare. Stay tuned to updates for the NHL Playoffs as well as NHL draft news by subscribing to the Ultimate Hockey Warrior:

Western Conference 2009 NHL Playoff 2nd Round MatchUps

2. Detroit Red Wings (defeated Columbus 4-0)
6. Anaheim Ducks (defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2)

A series with some history. Expect a very tight series with two experienced and playoff tested teams.  Older defensive stalwarts will be highlighted in this series, with Pronger and Niedermayer for the Ducks and Lidstrom for the Wings.  Both teams have the capacity to score big, with Getzlap, Perry, Selanne and Ryan for the Ducks, and Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Hossa and Franzen for the Wings.  In the end the Red Wings depth offensively and defensively wins out. Detroit wins the playoffs series 4-3

3. Vancouver Canucks (defeated the Blues 4-0)
4. Chicago Blackhawks (defeated the Flames 4-2)

The Canucks easily beat the Blues behind outstanding goaltending from Roberto Luongo and timely scoring from a number of players.  The Hawks beat a good Flames team in 6 games and despite their young team age, they have some veterans that offer solid leadership and playoff experience.  The question in this series will be goaltending.  Will Lungo be as good as he was in the 1st round, and can Khabibulin carry his team to the next round.  Both teams have big, strong and mobile defenseman and good speed up front.  This one could definitely go the full 7 games.  Chicago wins the playoffs series 4-3

Eastern Conference 2009 NHL Playoff 2nd Round MatchUps

1. Boston Bruins (beat Montreal 4-0)
6. Carolina Hurricanes (beat Devils 4-3)

The Boston Bruins are flying.  They ruined the Canadians 100 year anniversary without even blinking.  This team is as solid as they come with 4 solid lines, outstanding defense, and a world-class goalie with Tim Thomas.  The Hurricanes are a solid team, though not nearly as talented or deep as the Bruins.  They are clutch though and know how to turn it on in important situations.  The Canes wont quite have enough this time around. Bruins wins the playoffs series 4-2

2. Washington Capitals (defeated the Rangers 4-3)
4. Pittsburgh Penguins (defeated the Flyers 4-2)

The Washington Capitals took 7 games to beat the Rangers in a tough grinding series.  The Rangers did a good job of containing Mike Green and Alexander Ovechkin and at times were able to take advantage of a rookie goaltender.  The Capitals are fast and gritty and have the best hockey player on their side.  The Penguins are loaded up front as well with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.  This series should feature some high scoring and physical games.  The difference maker will be the goaltender . . . and in this case, Pittsburgh has Marc-Andre Fleury who will end up winning this series for the Penguins.   Pittsburgh wins the playoffs series 4-3
