Memo to the NHL: The New York Rangers Need to Ax the Broadway Blueshirts

This morning, when my brother and I were opening up our presents, he unwrapped a box and pulled something out that I have been seeing way too much lately.

A blue Rangers jersey.

Don't get me wrong, I love the blue jersey, I actually only buy them—mainly because of my messy nature and would destroy the white ones.

Ever since 2003, the Garden has had no color.

There is no breaking the monotony of blue versus white. Every night it is the same thing.

One of the best things about hockey is the jerseys and uniforms that each team wears. However, we never get to see any of them.

From the '70s to 2003, the home team wore white in most cases—until the "third" or "alternate" jersey was introduced. Remember these ?

The Rangers wearing white would allow us to see the many colors of the NHL, whether it be red with Detroit, Carolina, Calgary, Florida, and of course Montreal. Even black would be a welcome when Dallas or Boston comes to town. How about seeing turquoise or green, when San Jose or Minnesota skates into the Garden?

It's one of the little things that bugs me about the NHL.
