While having two outdoor games at Yankee Stadium this season is thrilling enough, Jim Cerny at Blueshirts United has sent my excitement level through the roof after reporting during a recent live chat that the Rangers will be wearing a brand new alternate jersey for the two Stadium Series games.
If you remember, the Rangers had a huge jersey unveiling ceremony at Wollman Rink in New York City for the 2012 Winter Classic...
...one of my favorite parts about the 2012 Winter Classic was all the speculation about the jersey. While I don't anticipate a big ceremony such as the one above, I do think they'll have some kind of unveiling event for the fans.
...as far as the expected look, my hope is that it'll look a little something like this...
...and please, I beg of you, don't be the guy who buys the Chinese knock-off jersey before the actual one is unveiled...
...would love to hear you thoughts on possible design in the comments section.
I honestly want them to bring back the Liberty jersey for this. Always loved that sweater. Although this design is different and a throw back I think that tit would look better with lady liberty on the jersey.
I"m totally with you on what you are hoping for...I was really hoping that they'd wear the original sweaters and uniforms from the 1920's with the brown pants. I'm not a fan of the mid-40's sweaters that they wore for one season with the word "Rangers" over the player number on the front. Let's hope they go REALLY old-school!
I would love an updated Liberty jersey, maybe with a classic twist.
I absolutely despise the basketball jerseys in hockey. I think it undermines the mantra of "play for the name on the front and not the one on the back".
@Lordstanleybroadway white home sweaters are the only thing stopping us from winning the Cup
@Lordstanleybroadway Hear hear
@Rangers3024At least they didn't make Sports Illustrated looking like this:
@BrendyJohnson Me likey!!!!!
@CJ Not so sure. I think the NHL would allow the Rangers to wear blue if Islanders and Devils wanted to go with a home white alternate jersey.
@ThinmanStrikes LOL! Could you imagine?
@nyrmike21 Hope not. Been there, done that.
Ha hey I'm superstitious last time we hoisted Stanley we were wearing whites on garden ice . It's the blue sweater jinx.
I hate the lady liberty jersey. I think it's a freaking curse. until we rid ourselves of every last vestige of that era we will be doomed! doomed I tell you!!! that even includes the nut on the helmets. I'm being facetious of course but I do hate the liberty jersey.
That would be pretty awesome if they did pinstripes, I hope they do something like that being in Yankee Stadium in all.
@Lordstanleybroadway I know thats what I meant, I guess I worded it wrong. If we have white home sweaters we will win it all. just like '94
