Old Feb 28th, 2009, 09:50 PM        the shop at nhl.com can go fuck itself
Because kelly-green is one of the few colors that actually looks sensible on us redheaded freaks, I'm always excited when their St. Patrick's edition stuff comes out in the spring. I saw a thermal and made up my mind to get it for myself as a birthday gift next month.

Keep in mind, there is NO MENTION in the catalog of any of this stuff only being available for certain teams. They just implied that it was there for all teams. So when I checked the website to see how much it would be with shipping, surprise surprise...no Blue Jackets version available. As usual.

You know, Rick Nash is great and all and he does seem like a really nice guy, but if you're a Blue Jackets fan and you don't want a #61 jersey you're pretty much fucked. I don't know how they fill up a store with stuff because it's just a few variations on a very limited theme. The only special edition anything I've ever gotten is a green 2008 puck, and that's because it was easy enough for them to slap a Blue Jackets sticker on it.

As far as they're concerned, if you're not an Original 6 fan, who cares and fuck you. I realize they're trying to make a profit but how will they ever know if the stuff sells if it's never available?

I mean, it's not like I'm asking for a fucking Danny Gare bobblehead.


The boyfriend got dicked over by them at Christmas when he tried to get me a hoodie. They told him it was out of stock and that they would give him a refund, then suddenly shipped it and charged him. Which was fine, but almost caused a problem planningwise.

Stupid fucking place burns me everytime.

I hear ya all the way from the mick colored shirts to the nhl.com store being bad times. Whenever I go to the sabres store at the arena I get all these whenever I mention the online store. I'm lucky enough we have almost everything green so we can go celebrate the 17th and the sabres at the same time. I definitely think more teams should do it.

They can't even get their shit together between the catalog and the website....getting their shit together between the website and the stores would be totally hopeless.

Edit: Here. Here's a really good example of this bullshit.

Shop by team -> Western Conference -> Columbus Blue Jackets, right?

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS TEAM STORE PAGE.

Click on St. Patrick's Day shop.

Look at this.



NHL Shop Home > Columbus Blue Jackets > Colorado Avalanche.

Idiots.

Take it as a sign that no one cares about the Blue Jackets aside from you.

So what they're saying is that, if you like the Blue Jackets, you must like the Avalanche too.

That's not a syllogism, it's an ORDER!!!

It seems to working fine for me, although the only Blue Jackets items they have are the t-shirt and the fitted hat.

One of the few times I'm glad I'm a Rangers fan.

Can you post a link to the specific shirt/hat? Maybe Kitsa can get the shirt she wants from that?

Eh, it's just that they barely ever have anything available for the Blue Jackets. I'm used to it. I have a jersey, a Leclaire t-shirt and a longsleeved "hockey club" olive-green shirt I wear on every major holiday (I was unaware I did that, but it's in all the family photos). There's just not much to be had. I wouldn't be caught dead in that pink girly-cut bullshit.

I have a doctor appointment next week that's like 10 mins from the Blue Jackets store, I'll just stop by and see if they have anything. If they did, it'd be there.

Sounds like the shop at nhl.com has a discipline problem.

The problem can be solved if they would just fuck themselves.
