A New York Oddity

I've been staring at them for a while but I'm not quite sure what to make of these New York Rangers jerseys from Ryan Christensen. This submission has been collecting dust in the vault since June 2016 — Ryan's a very prolific artist!

He submitted them with no comment. Here's what I've decided. They're from an alternate universe. One in which Original Six teams like the Rangers wear "vintage white" every night — save for that rare third jersey occasion when they "clean up" and sneak in some real white. I don't know. What do you make of them?
