Third Jersey Coming in November

From @stevezipay...

Rangers will unveil "third" jersey in November: Confirmedless than a minute ago via web


...now the question is what is it going to look like. Most rumors are that it will be away blue with New York written diagonal across the front. Which would be pretty boring if you ask me.

Wow. Way to be jealous about the fact that everyone else has a third jersey except you. They should be atrocious.

Dennis said...

Hopefully it will be the classic vintage logo. The Statue of Liberty logo sucks balls.

yeah anonymous bro they're gonna suck bro. rangers suck bros

I think the statue of liberty wasn't too bad but I think the new york down the front isn't a bad idea either and maybe put the rangers crest on the shoulders would make it look pretty good.

Jack said...

I don't mind the diagonal "New York" across the chest as long as they put the shield on the shoulders.

Honestly the Rangers have little-to-no room to play with alternate logos. What is "ranger" anyway? (spare me the team history).

From a design standpoint the only place they can go is extract something iconic from NYC (skyline, watertower, manhole cover..). The liberty logo was meh as was the dopey hockey glove holding the torch.

The rangers OLD shield looks insanely dated (more so than the Maple Leafs or Canadiens old logos).

this one's pretty good

I happen to like the Islanders third jerseys quite a bit. Doubt the Rangers will be as good.

Dan W said...

Eeww why?! Im fine with just two of the games nicest jerseys.

Kevin DeLury said...

C'mon Dan you must know the only reason for it is so the Dolans can make more $$$$.

Speaking of atrocious logos, how the f*ck is this an actual registered logo of the New York Rangers!?

That logo is a joke.

I like the idea of the "New York", and I hope they go with old lines and font etc, make it look like a really old sweater.

I also don't mind the Lady Liberty logo, but I hate the colours. I'd like them to use the regular blue, red and white.

I'm expecting something along the lines of the Ottawa's 3rd with "Sens" oe TB's 3rd with "Bolts" using NYR. I hope I'm wrong because I hate both of those jerseys.

Jimmy said...

To tell you the truth, I really don't like the Rangers jerseys at all. They're too bright. The players look like a bunch of circus clowns out there. Bright red, bright white, and bright blue. I never understood the obsession with the Rangers jerseys. I think the nicest jerseys in the league are: Flames 3rd jerseys, Islanders 3rd jerseys, San Jose home jerseys, Montreal home jerseys.

What do people think of these jerseys when the NHL tried out the vintage collection.

In response to Jimmy: The Rangers home and away jerseys are beautiful. Comparing them to a sharks uniform is just silly. MTL Canadiens are a fair comparison as they have great jerseys as well.

I am not opposed to the New York Running down the center of the jersey idea either. As long as Lady LIberty does not grace the jersey I am fine.

Now, I am not a proponent of any of these designs but I think they are worth looking at.

Personally, I don't mind "New York" across the front. I think it will add diversity to the jersey, but not enough to change the originality. The Rangers jerseys are one of the nicest in the league. It would be a shame to see such an extreme change like those of the Panthers, Penguins, Dallas, and Sens.
With that said, one could argue that the point of a 3rd jersey is to change it drastically.

I would hate to see such an atrocious logo replace the original Home/Away jersey we all love

I'm eager is see what the staff has come up with.

Kevin DeLury said...

I'm a big fan if the 1970s jersey with the NYR crest.

AnnoyingJoe said...

oh no, kevin, really? I think theres a reason those only lasted a little while.

I like the fact that the jersey hasn't changed all that much. I like the fact that really none of the original six teams have kept their jerseys consistent over the decades.

Paul said...

kevin i agree with you. the old school 70's jerseys are legit

Scotty Hockey said...

Considering the NHL/Reebok digs the arc'd name with the number underneath - see Dallas and Atlanta - I wouldn't be shocked to see the 46=47s ...

And I like the late 70s pajama sweaters - as you can see in my avatar.

Brent said...

Evan,

Those are some pretty hideous re-branding logos in the last link that you posted.

Rick said...

I kind of prefer the 50-60 logo with the crisper colors instead of the matted colors of today. Diagional RANGERS of the 70's is good. But I like the 3D version of the logo with the year underneath.
