I'd mind, its still a decent chunk of change investing in a jersey, and having the name all on one iron on patch looks really cheesy, well to each their own.

Llisten brah, unless you are 12, there is NO excuse for getting a jersey with your own name on the back. please think about this long and hard before you go through with it.

getting your own name on your jersey is pretty tacky, dont do it. or if you do at least accept the endless ridicule you'll be asking for.

my original idea was to get callahan and 43, then i started thinking what if the rangers trade him next year? then i wanted lumpy (lundqvist) then i thought so many people have his. I freak myself out like that alot.

If you're only gonna have 1 custom jersey it would make more sense to get one for someone who's gonna be around for a while...such as Lundqvist, Drury or Gomez (although I don't know if I could ever see myself getting a Gomez jersey.) Or, you can't go wrong with a Messier or Leetch.

its just a jersey, no reason to worry about it so much. pick a player you like, get the jersey. eventually you'll probably end up with multiple jerseys anyway (think my Callahan jersey I'm getting is my 6th?)

Of course, there's nothing to say you have to put a name on the jersey....

i've been looking for about 1 hour, and i think i'll get a drury. He's a great player, he's going to with us for 5 years and he's been a ranger fan all his life, so i cant hate him. I coulnt stand getting a gomez one. i just cant see him in blue.

True as well.

And like everyone else said before, do not get your name on the back. At the same time, don't get a player for the sake of being original. This season we'll be snickering at those wearing their ORTMEYER 41 jerseys. As much as I like Callahan, say to yourself, "What has he done and how long has he been here?" And don't get a Colton Orr jersey because he's a bad ass enforcer. Not that I've seen it, but that's just beyond lame. I'd rather you went nostalgic and got a Holik because he was misunderstood.

My first three named Ranger jerseys:

#14 Fleury
#88 Lindros
#9 Bure

this man is wise, I always try to stay away from big names who are brought in, just my style. I like my locker room of a closet:

Leetch - old style home white

Leetch - Toronto Blue (have family in Toronto, was visiting after the trade, and he was my favorite player as a kid)

Messier - blue liberty (buddy of mine bought it 2 weeks before he signed with the nucks, sold it to me for $40 like a year later)

Richter - Home Blue

Lundqvist - Home Blue

Callahan - Away White (on order)

I suppose theres some risk to the Callahan jersey, since who knows what will become of him, but I thought he was great last season and brought a lot to the team and I like his playing style, and I forsee him being a big part of the team this season and for many more to come.

Hey don't feel too bad. I started off right with a Richter way back when, but then I had a Fleury, Lindros, Malholtra, and Mottau over the years. Needless to say, I tend to stick to the shirts now, although I bought a Dom Moore one and that didn't work out too well either.
