Im trying to remember the last season to Oilers didn't introduce a new jersey....seems like there is a new one for fans to buy every season.

It's already been said in the thread that it's just a third jersey, which almost every team in the league has. Why in the world would they take out the home or away jerseys?

I'm really just hoping for something new. No throwbacks, please. I wouldn't mind seeing our third jerseys as our aways just flip the orange and the blue around. Wouldn't be too bad.

Honestly these could look cool if it was tweaked a little bit. Throw some blue in there, especially for the Oilers logo. Maybe cut the orange completely out.

I'd really like to see a darker, meaner jersey as our 3rd jersey. I'm really tired of the same old rehashed jerseys.

I like this jersey. I wouldn't mind if the made this. I don't like the oil worker guy I think it's too rednecky and I think it's a poor drawing to boot. I was also not too crazy about the Todd Mcfarlane oil drop with a gear on it jersey we got a few years back. Nothing can beat the early 80s classic medium blue with orange. If they do come out with a 3rd jersey hopefully it'll be something good.

Third Jersey talk?

I want these:



No ECHL-style Rigger on the front. No return to 90s mistakes (as far as 90s thirds go, the MacFarlane jerseys are pretty gorgeous. But they ain't Oilers jerseys.). No garish throwback color-scheme. No lame 'looks cool' black & neon color scheme or gimmicks (see how the 90s thirds are collectively thought of by the zeitgeist, and that's how any 'kewl' jersey stunt will be thought of in a few years, if that).

I want the above. Simple, classy, modern. The jerseys we should have had 5 years ago.

Why would we rip off the Bruins jersey?

It looks like a darker version of our home jerseys. A third jersey should be completely different then the two main ones.

As long as it isn't like the Islanders third jerseys. Dear god those are bad.

I also think that a green and gold eskies/golden bears color scheme would look badass. If I had any skills whatsoever I'd shop one up, the image in my mind is beautiful though.

I hope that the new jersey honours the "Alberta" Oilers. That would definitely be apropos.

I know the history with the Alberta Oilers and everything, but doing that is at the same level as the Flames putting the Canadian and Albertan flags on their shoulders.

I thought that was supposed to be a one year thing, because damn, that looks tacky. The only thing uglier than the C on the front is the contrasting blue of the Alberta flag on the Flames red jersey... And that's not the flag's fault, let me tell you.

We should be expecting the orange. They're going to look like the flyers out there.

Also, I did note that Tom Gazzola ended his post-game story on the Oilers main webpage by calling the Oilers the "orange and blue" instead of the "blue and orange," which is what they're normally called.

Hmm.

Where is this third jersey talk coming from? It's not happening. Teams need to give the league notice about it. No way they could keep it hush hush until right before the unveiling.

although, really i'm just thankful they finally brought the right uni back, they should never go away from the current uni ever again IMO.

Yeah i thought it looked ok too, as far as orange goes anyways, i'm not really a big fan of orange being a primary colour for a uni, although Philly's looks good on them, and the other one i posted i thought looked pretty good for orange as well.

There has been absolutely nothing to lead me to believe we are getting new jerseys.
