After the Buffalo Sabres revealed their 2018 Winter Classic jerseys earlier this week, the Rangers have finally unveiled theirs in a cute, albeit mildly kitschy commercial pushed to Twitter:

 

This confirms speculation that the Rangers would, in fact, be wearing a navy-colored design for the game.

  1. I don't mind them at all. I like it better than the last ones. My only gripe is the plain white RANGERS. I don't mind the size, just that its only white. Throw some red in there.

    I like the colors, stripes, and the shield motif.

    Without looking closely, it kind of looks like the front says RANCERS on it.

    My biggest criticism of all the new adidas uniforms is that the collar designs are so large that they kind of make the players look like a little kid wearing an adult jersey. The giant collar on these, along with the giant logo/numbers, amplifies that look even moreso, but I do get why there has been a shift to larger features in outdoor game jerseys.



    Lol, I thought the same thing! The whole font is bad imo. It almost looks juvenile.
    Look.pretty good.

    Might even get one to wear in 532 at Citi along with 6 other layers of heavy warm stuff for outdoor hockey in January

    Probably do my best Chance the Rapper..

    That's what I dislike most about it — the typography, and especially the size. The jersey itself is fine IMO.



    The little kids jersey looks better because the letters arent so big.

    I can't help but think of those knockoff style house league jerseys I wore as a kid.
