ESPN has recently ranked the Rangers unform #11 in their 2012 Uni Watch Power Ranking…
The Rangers present the best argument for why the NHL should go back to having teams wear white at home: Their white design crackles with contrast and crisp highlights (arguably the strongest single uni in the NHL), while the blue set — well, it’s solid, but it doesn’t have the razzle-dazzle of the white. Toss in an unnecessary but unobjectionable retro alternate and you have one of the NHL’s best-dressed teams. Just wish they’d wear their top outfit at home.
…love that ESPN gives the Rangers whites some props. Too bad we Rangers fans never get to see them in person at MSG anymore.
…easily the worst decision of the Bettman error era has been the decision to change the home whites to road whites. Now instead of seeing the different visiting teams’ colors when attending a game at MSG, we only get to see blue vs. white. Absolutely awful.
