Official Rangers EDGE Photos

One other thing I meant to mention with regard to Reebok's new EDGE uniform web site that I wrote about earlier is that it's offering us our first official photos of the new sweaters for the New York Rangers.

Not even the NHL.com Shop has photos of the jerseys. In fact, the Rangers are the only team without official photos on that site. But regardless, I just wanted to make mention of that.

That's all I've got for today. Expect loads more stuff tomorrow!

No relation, but I watched last night game between the Habs and Penguins.

The unis looked great, but Montreal was clearly the best jersy on the ice.

I find it very interesting that the New York Rangers are the only NHL team that has yet to relaunch their web site under the NHL.com template (seen it and it's still not finished) and as you mentioned Chris, they're the only team not to have their jerseys shown on official NHL Shop sites.

I don't know the motive behind the delay, but it isn't making anybody happier they're the last holdout. I'm sure capt89 wants to complete his jersey grid and he still has to wait for the Rangers to get their act together and caught up to speed.

As far as the jerseys go, hopefully all the fears I had when theirs were informally unveiled and saw the diagonal "RANGERS" across the front off center are eased. Chris, when you posted that image from Blueshirt Bulletin, it appears that the "RANGERS" across Chris Drury's jersey looks fine.

It looks like they have changed the positioning slightly. The "R" looks like it starts a little lower and slightly further from the stitching, making the text more horizontal than it was on the original pictures we saw. The final on the Rbk EDGE site looks great in comparison to the one we saw thrown on the floor.

Looking at the site right now, and it looks like they have taken the Rangers down, it says coming soon on the front selection wheel... and they are missing from the sidebar... what is up with the Rangers?

Chris said...

Hmm, you're right. I wonder what that's all about. I'll see what I can find out. Thanks for the comments!

The only thing I can think of would be that the Rangers asked them to take it down because they decided to have some sort of official unveiling, or they are waiting until the Rangers play their first pre-season game... either way it is slightly fishy.
