The actual on-ice jerseys look better than those, it’s still too low but not as bad. For comparison:

damn when you see them side by side the amount of excessive striping on the sleeves and especially at the bottom is another miss for me along with the crest needing to be raised. The white one is just so much cleaner and classier in every way in my eyes.

@titans04 that was my issue with the old red and green too.  The top white border of the sleeve stripes almost looks like a piece of tape...and it feels like a lot of striping.  As far as the pre-red and black era goes, I always liked the whites more than the reds.  I would actually welcome a white, red, and black with the Heritage layout.

Oh and the Rangers RR sucks.  Partly because it's a Ranger jersey.  And heavily because it's the end result is just...off.  Has the same issue that the Red Wings jersey does...looks more like a practice jersey, with the Statue of Liberty crest thrown on it.  

So then it looks like one of our normal game jerseys, except its made for a bunch of jabroni's to wear.

This (white, red and black), no green, way less stripes and center the logo, not asking for much. Clearly teams had a sh!t ton of leeway with where they went with these.  They're not eternally locked into the never ending green/white/red theme.

As mfitz pointed out before, the one shown in the pictures is an Indonesian-made authentic which are poorly-done psuedo-"authentics" that Adidas has been trying to pass off on fans as being authentics.  I would not be surprised if the on-ice MiC jerseys have the crest placed better.

FWIW when the league switched to Adidas, they purposefully placed all team's crests slightly lower on the jerseys because of how little room the Edge template gave teams to put patches on the shoulders.  That is why the NHL100 patches in 16-17 were placed on the arm instead of the chest.  Not only that, but many teams are doing 2 or even 3 patches at once, so the shoulder was getting really crowded and the teams want more room.

EDIT: Also, it looks like the Devils posted a video on their FB page titled something like "From the depths of the pine barrens" and it shows clips of what appears to be a MiC version with the crest seemingly placed in a more normal position.

The green reverse looks like a wild jersey..   why no news from the league about camp starts and a preseason. Not good

Thanks!  Yeah, it's been a little over four months.  I decided to leave for good in July for a variety of reasons.  However, since one of the biggest reasons of why I left recently left here for good (or at least seems to), I decided to come back in some capacity.

Yup, that is the video.

The one in the video is definitely an improvement.

Clearly it’s buy GI or GW or deal with a serious lack of quality.

All I know is if they center the crest and make the on-ice jerseys available to buy, they’ve got my $375 or whatever it’ll cost. If they put the crest at belly button level and peddle indo knockoffs with glued on names and numbers, I wouldn’t wear one if the Devils paid me.

The Rangers LIberty was a great great jersey...I may or may not own one. They went and messed it up. If they really wanted a fun RR- they should've brought back the short lived white version of that.

Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing (re:  the white SoL jerseys).

Yeah you can’t just admit stuff like that. Some secrets are supposed to stay buried.

I’m sorry, but unless you had a gun pressed to your temple, there’s no reason to own a Rags jersey. It would would be acceptable, however, if after receiving it, you used it as kindling for a fire, or as a form of toilet paper.

If this isn’t permanent-ban worthy, nothing is.

Nobody would ever think of giving me a Rangers jersey as a gift. Just sayin'. 

That’s because people have to like you enough to spend money on you, even for a gag gift.
