Gretzky in its inaugural year

Jagr fromr recently

I saw third jerseys being discussed in the NHL forum and after I saw Gretzky in it, I thought the jersey looked better. Has it been tinkered with or am I losing my mind? Thanks.

It looks darker to me.

I think it just might be the lighting in each picture. Either that or they made them a darker blue.

Balej20* 02-28-2007 10:08 PM

I think it's the lighting. I bought their third jersey right after they intorduced it and it is the dark blue that Jagr is wearing in the new pic. So it is the lighting.

Either way I can't stand them. The alternate jerseys are awful.

I personally don't like them much either. I wish they would just wear their blues at home all the time...best jerseys in the NHL.

Agreed. I liked the white liberties better too. Hope after next year, when the NHL changes jersey and limits each team to just the home white and the road dark, the Rangers bring back the white liberty as the alternate.

Thanks for clarifying guys.

Im with you. Disgusting.

clmetsfan 03-01-2007 09:28 AM

No more alternates!

I love the Rangers traditionals, I hate the light and dark Liberty jerseys.

I'm also a big fan of the stipulation that next year every team will go back to home whites and road colors.

3rd jersey = loss.

SingnBluesOnBroadway 03-01-2007 11:31 AM

The only real change is they seem to have gotten rid of the white liberty logo jersey.

Exactly. And like people have said, they're ugly as hell. I have a lot of bad memories seeing the Rangers in those jerseys--late in the season, afternoon game, ugly jersey and losing to the Devils in another non-playoff year. :(

I never had a problem with the 3rd jersey's. Lady liberty is actually a cool logo. If they where it once and awhile who cares?

I'm against third and alternate jerseys in general, no matter what the sport is.

1) They never look as good as the primary jerseys.

2) The reason they exist is simply to make more merchandising money.

Nich 03-01-2007 12:49 PM

yeah they both suck...but still the lighter blue makes it somewhat more bearable....can't wait till i don't have to see those next year!

The coolest thing about the liberty logo is that its inspired by Richter's mask

There's no difference. I have an original one and one I bought last year.
