Why No 3rd Jersey?

Just saw the Bruins new jersey and it got me upset that the Rangers aren't going to have one this season.

I don't understand...a 3rd jersey is an excellent source of revenue anywhere...much less this town.

Their last 3rd jerseys were awesome...is this just a one year thing and next year will they one...or are they not in the plans anytime soon...and regardless...why?

because they suck and are mickey mouse shouldn't be involved with an 82 year old organization. period. im all for a third jersey, but the liberty one belongs in the AHL or europe or something.

unless the third jersey is one from the past, then i dont want any part of it.....3rd jerseys are just a way for new organizations to sell more jerseys....im pretty sure the rangers dont have problems with that(i mean i know i have one....and want another one lol)

Because the Rangers should NEVER have a 3rd sweater (unless it's a historical commemorative Rangers sweater). We are blue, we are white, and we are diagnol. That's it!

I'm guessing after the RBK edge debacle of last season they just don't want any part of the new jerseys. It would just be another set that the training staff would have to modify themselves.

there is no greater hockey traditionalist than me but I must admit I did like the Liberty shirts.....especially the white one! In fact it is the only Ranger shirt I ever bought.

I commend the Wing, Leafs, Rangers and Hawks for resisting the temptation to muck with the desingn.
Hawks third shirt in black were super cool......Most of the RBK design will die a horrible death of over design........

I think Rangers are not above trying to make more money. It's a fantasy thing and as such I don't think it's bad. I don't think you should have a regular 3rd shirt to alternate, but every once a while to come up with something to spark our interest -
I don't think its a bad thing.

Rangers don't have a 3rd jersey because they don't need it...simple as that.

I actually liked our 3rd jersey, though the white one absolutely sucked. I don't think we should have a regular 3rd jersey, but a retro look every once in a while would be nice.

Great! So lower my cable bill.

Do you really care about generating revenue?

The liberty logo is a nice design in an of itself, but I don't like how it appears on a jersey.

They look cheesy and over-designed to me.


I'm fine with the good ole letter diagonal.

how does



look like



they didn't get it from richter, but rather the statue of liberty...and they did a shotty job of it imo.....

the liberty logo should be a shoulder patch at best

and they need to stay away from the dark blue.

why did they have one in the first place? $$$
I bet yo guys that the start of the '09-'10 you guys have a third jersey. probably not a retro one either. I base this on nothing, just a hunch

I don't want to bring them back for even a few games in fear of the 1 in 1000 chance they morph into the every day ones. I would be in favor of the nyr shield, diagonal New York, and probably a dozen other ideas, but not navy blue and a crap pic of the statue of liberty. It's just too Carolina Hurricanes of our 80+ year team. Original six teams should keep things traditional. You don't see Detroit wearing maroon jerseys with a speeding car on it or something you get the point.

The Rangers got liberty jerseys because that was the same year that the Liberty basketball team was founded. It was Garden synergy people.
