NHL 2017-18

If it was a real crew neck like the past couple of winter classics with Reebok used, it'd be a lot better.

There are some nits I could pick about the Sabres' jersey, but it's mostly good. I don't think you absolutely need yellow on both, but between the names/numbers and the yoke, that's a whole lot of blue-and-white. The NY is dumb and this whole game is a sham, but you guys already knew that.

 

For the throwback/fauxback consideration, the Sabres didn't really have a lot of places to go for a real throwback. The slugs are a no. The time probably hasn't quite come for a goat head throwback (although hopefully at or before the 50th). Other than that, they've only really had one home and one away. They did the straight throwback in the first Winter Classic. They did the "inspired by a local pre-NHL team" thing for their 40th anniversary jerseys. So, it seems like they went with "good jersey in classic colors". Not perfect, but I'm just glad they didn't completely botch it.

The Rangers jersey is alright, but... yeah, the fake version was better. The actual product just has a bit too much going on :mellow:

Yeah, but this is one of those times when I wouldn’t prefer an accurate throwback. 

 

Or maybe I would, if they had been more accurate. But with the NY shield on the front, and the horrendous collar on the modern template, they’ve already changed it enough to ruin the throwback feel.

 

I’d much rather have an “inspired by” that works on a modern template with modern materials.

The collar is bad, but I do like the yoke detail that kinda mimics the white jersey.  When it's actually on a player and shifted up towards the top of the shoulders, it reduces the clutter. 

 

The NY shield reminds me of the Phila keystone C and A patches.  Wonder if that was the inspiration.

I can see that. I honestly forgot they had the trimmed yoke on these.

Cruel, because his concept was so much better than the actual ones.

That collar.  And the stupid phantom yoke stripes.   Ugh. 

The collar’s bad (though to be fair ALL of the Adidas collars are bad), and the NY in the shield is needless clutter, but the yoke stripes? That’s the one redeeming feature. 

That shoulder stripe pattern’s a mainstay on the Rangers’ white sweaters. So seeing it on a blue sweater’s kind of cool.

Why can't they put the NHL shield inside the white part, that would improve the clutter a bit.. But still, the whole toilet seat collar are terrible.

The fake leak was a better jersey. It was more plain, but it looked better & was a nice tie to their history. The stupid NY patch & phanton yokes ruin the jersey for me.

All this hate on the yoke stripes is comical as a lot of the Rangers concepts out there have the same thing and everyone always loves it. 

 

These collars are also weird in that they're like the reverse of the other Adidas collar. This one looks like an old ccm/koho v-neck that they're adding more to make it look crew neck. The standard Adidas one is a crew neck trying to be a v.

That doesn't make it good.

I hate the Rangers with a passion but outside of the adidas collar (which should be half the size it is) I have to say that I like these jerseys.  I feel dirty having said that.

It looks like normal players will have NY logo on chest.

I like that a lot actually.  Look at all those stripes. STRIPES.

Did I say it did? I was pointing out the context.

 

Fair enough but you've been known for defending the new collars in the past so it wasn't that big of a leap.  The problem with the Rangers collar is the same problem that plagues all the Adidas jerseys.  It's just too big.  Shrink the thickness down a little bit and it would look fine.

The Rangers jersey would be perfect IMO if the NY/captain patch was on the shoulder. The yoke stripes are a nice detail, and people have been clamouring for them for years.

Those are fine but they are basically the same thing as these

The Rangers need to bring back the Lady Liberty jerseys.

Yeah, except those look better.  They’re simpler and have better collars.
