New Third Oilers Jersey?
 
Just curious if anyone has heard anything if they are designing a new third jersey for the oilers?

With the coming of the new arena in 2016 , I'm kinda intriqued if they will have some new digs in the very first opening game in the new barn.

I still love the oilers logo and colors, I just would like to see a re-design for a third jersey.

There is nothing about it on icethetics, and they're usually far ahead of the mark when it comes to uniform changes.

That doesn't mean nothing is being planned, but I certainly haven't heard anything. If there is, I'd put money on it being an alberta oilers throwback.

It would be so simple and so awesome, something like this:

So ugly. How many jerseys do we need to see.

The ones from 05-06 were carried out from prior to the lockout, and still had the 3rd jersey. Then we got rid of the 3rd jersey and brought in the ugly rebook jerseys. Then we introduced the retro jersey as a 3rd jersey and then got rid of the ugly rebook jersey and switched full time to home/away retro jerseys.

That makes a lot of sense.

I'm not sure what they'd go for though.

BarDownBobo 02-18-2014 01:33 AM

I'm sure something will be coming soon. Can't imagine what kind of design they'll do. I keep thinking they'll do something like the Edmonton Rush third jersey, maybe orange with white letters and a blue outline on the letters.

The Flames did a third jersey nearly identical to this, just with flames colours. From what I gather, it's not terribly popular. I don't care for all letters on a jersey unless you're the Rangers or Avalanche.

Our old away jerseys were good.

Why, because people are gonna run straight to the Oilers store and empty the shelves? Haaaaaaa. good luck with that. Here's a hint, try icing an NHL calibre team and conducting your organization in a way that I'm not embarrassed to be a fan of it.

shudda stuck with the Todd Macfarlane drill bit. it would have become like the Redwing flying wheel. Old school. I might have gotten a tattie of that logo if the organization hadn't disappointed me so much lately. I still might.

I'm sure they'll go with 'Edmonton' or 'Oilers' inside a circle or something blah like that.

Surprisingly very similar to the Alberta Oilers (pre-dating the WHA)

I also think different hommage to Edmonton hockey would be better fitting than reference to the Dynasty era:
Edmonton Eskimos: (Lost in the Stanley Cup Finals to the Senators in 1923)

I remember in the summer Eakins was saying something about an updated symbol for the locker room floor. So I asume the new 3rds will have whatever symbol that is.

Rawg 02-18-2014 02:08 PM

Hopefully we get a better logo, jersey colour/look is nice, but the logo is terrible

Psycho Dad 02-18-2014 02:21 PM

With the orange jerseys being sold in stores, I wouldn't be shocked to see them as a third soon.

Not in favor of a brand new jersey of any sort right now. Would like to see a new one for the new arena's debut, but it would have to be perfect.

We custom ordered this exact uniform (including pants) for our men's league team this season and they look sweet! Too many blue teams in the NHL. It would be a welcome change (imo) to emphasize the orange.

MettleOiler 02-18-2014 05:19 PM

Thanks to those who responded. I guess its just a wait and see situation. I know it's weird but I do hope they have something planned and looking forward to see it.

Soundwave 02-18-2014 05:43 PM

I'd bet money the orange Alberta Oilers design is being saved for when ever the Oilers play their next "Heritage Classic".

I'd be happy if they brought back the 2006-era design as a third.

A black/silver/copper combo might look cool too.

flashy 02-18-2014 05:57 PM

has anybody seen the oilers coke zero cans?

I thought that would be a sick jersey.

I like the fact that it actually looks like Oil.

oXo Cube 02-18-2014 06:06 PM

Why do we need a third?

The two we already have both look great.

I don't necessarily like it, but I just have a feeling that could be a design they look at.

Mr Forever 02-18-2014 06:41 PM

something completely absurd like this

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-cFVZycXmp5...1600/eller.JPG

looks like it was made on create a team in NHL 09

A91 02-18-2014 07:00 PM

Like a few others posted, I think a black jersey would be slick. Something like the Kings jersey would be cool. Just dont add orange like the Islanders 3rd jerseys :help:

SupremeTeam16 02-18-2014 07:22 PM

It's super top secret but the new logo will be Kevin Lowe's hand wearing all his cup rings.
