I'm still confused. Btw Replicas, premier Pro and Authentics. Maybe someone can shed some light on that for me.
Rbk Edge Authentic Pro
Introduced during the 2007-08 season, the EDGE Authentic Jersey is the actual jersey worn on-ice by all NHL players. This technical jersey features a four-way stretch core body material with BeadAway™, a water repellent treatment. Four-way Stretch Mesh provides a balance of ventilation and range of motion in the underarm and back regions (where applicable). Highly durable BeadAway™ treated X-trafil fabric provides additional reinforcement in shoulder and elbow areas. Neck collar features PlayDry performance Lycratalic (with polyester ribknit when applicable). Team front and shoulder crests (where applicable) feature a combination of direct stitched embroidery and twill appliqué. All crests are directly sewn to the jersey. An authentic tie down fight strap is attached inside the lower back of the jersey. The Reebok vector logo is embroidered on the back of the neck and sleeve and the NHL shield patch is sewn on the bottom of the front collar fabric insert. Includes Rbk/NHL Center Ice Authentic Woven neck label and Rbk/NHL Center Ice jock tag with numeric sizing is applied to the lower left of the bottom of the jersey.

Rbk Premier Replica
Introduced during the 2007-08 season, the Premier Replica Jersey is engineered and constructed to duplicate the look of on-ice team designs.

Performance polyester engineered interlock or striped knit collar, with NHL shield logo patch sewn to bottom of front collar fabric insert. Front chest crest features a combination of direct stitched embroidery and twill appliqué.

CCM Classic/550 Replica
This semi-pro 550 series replica jersey manufactured by CCM® is the classic cut replica of the jersey last worn during the 2006-2007 season. Chest and shoulder crests (where applicable) feature a combination of embroidery and appliqué tackle twill. Other features include:
- Patented AIR-KNIT® 100% polyester (mid-weight version)
- Double shoulders with reinforced stitching on shoulders and armholes
- CCM®/NHL™ neck label
- CCM® embroidered patch on back neck & left sleeve
Basically Replica refers to anything that isn't engineered to the exact specifications as the jersey worn on the ice by the players.
Authentic: Exactly what the pros wear
Reebok Premier: Looks like the real deal, but no reinforced stitching, everything is heat pressed on and not sewn (unless you do the customization from other stores, where the letters and numbers will be stitched). There is jock tag on the front with size information. The front logo is not stitched on, but pressed on.
CCM Replica: Looks like the authentic CCMs, everything is stitched on, the material is just lighter than the real deal. CCM had the best replicas.
