The Rangers have installed their ice and made a subtle change. So subtle, we are not even sure it was on purpose.
The center ice is made up of the same design, but it doesn't quite fill the center circle this year. There is just a small white space between between the blue center circle and the gray border of the layout. Its small changes like these that often make our archive look like we are just posting duplicate graphics, as it takes a good eye to determine what changed from one year to the next.
Our only real thought on the change is slightly positive. We are not a fan of the center circle having to touch the red line while nothing else in the circle can. So at least the white space acts as a separator from the design in the circle. We were reaching on that but its really the only takeaway for us.
What do you think of this change? We would imagine there are no strong feelings on this, but perhaps some people do have an opinion on this. Let us know in the comments below.
