  1. So close... but the '97 version with the black numbers on the arm was both more visually pleasing (in my opinion, at least) and more legible from the press box.
  2. I'd go w/ a black helmet on the red uniform.
  3. This. A thousand times this. The black numbers on the sleeve & the white numbers on the back is the one true way.
  4. That being said, so long to those 2008-ass jerseys from seasons past, and good riddance!
  5. All in all it is a disappointment, but I feel more betrayed by the lack of proper hemstriping than by the sleeves on the white jersey. Also, I thought the shoulder patch was going to be wingless, which IMO would've been a nice touch. Disappointed by that as well.
  6. It looks weird, but I feel like the black cuffs were never that great to begin with. The nostalgic in me is kinda bummed, but the obsessive-compulsive in me is kinda glad that the colour layout for the home & away is more traditional now, if that makes any sense. You no longer have this weird home & away combo where one jersey is all black, while the other one has these very black sleeves for no particular reason. Those black cuffs always made the white jersey feel like that very 90's look where dudes would wear a t-shirt over their long sleeved shirts. Curious to see how it looks in action. Guessing it'll pretty much look like the NJ devils, which is kind of a bummer.
  7. Umm hi guys, we have a re-instatement certificate signed by Joyn Ziegler himself, so if you could kindly all quit it with your manufactured outrage about where banners are being placed, that'd be super great. We're having a rough enough time as it is lately. Thanks in advance
  8. What about something like this with black replacing blue? (obviously without the JR "A" written in there)
  9. Rumours have been swirling all season about Ottawa changing their uniforms next year as well. Curious to see what this means with regards to that.
  10. The Rangers blue should be lighter like in their uniforms form the 1920's. I've always thought that this is a much nicer look than the current royal blue. No dropshadow nonsense. A simple, crisp uniform with a lighter blue that makes the red pop just a bit more in my opinion. In fact, I believe that this is the best the Rangers have ever looked! Obviously the pants would have to be updated and last names would have to be added to the back of the sweater, but these have held up surprisingly well. Just make a white one with that classic mid-century shoulder yoke, and you've made all the changes you need to make to the Rangers. As for the collars, I really don't know what to tell you guys. Considering the current template, I imagine it wouldn't be pretty. Here are the other original 6 teams' best looks from throughout out the years, in my boring opinion:
  11. Dangit man, how can Morgo always be so wrong about everything?!! He's a decent poster and all... but goddamn! The Rangers' existing jerseys (although they get the blue somewhat wrong) are in the upper echelons of NHL uniforms. Why mess with that? That 90's Rangers look is awful and it should be mothballed forever much like current New Englad Patriots uniform that it so closely resembles. I liked it as a kid, but its time has come & gone. Very few teams should have more than 2 jerseys, and the Rangers certainly shouldn't be one of them.
