Third Jersey Ideas

Now that McNextOne is coming, that likely means the merchandising bonaza isn't far behind and a new third will be part of that.

While the orange Alberta Oilers retro unis or bringing back the Smyth-Weight era dark blues both make some sense, maybe something new might be cool too.

Ever since the Oilers drew the gold ticket, I wondered if a gold or gold-ish/copper Oilers jersey would be OK.

Like picture a gold/copper Oilers logo, numbers, and lettering, similar to the Oilers entrance door:



On a very dark blue jersey (maybe even darker than the 90s unis) or even black.

Might be interesting anyway. I'm not photoshop savvy so maybe someone could make a mock up.

Replace the copper with gold on all our jerseys perhaps? Lol

I'd love to see them use the new Oiler logo that is on the new casino renders:

Just use the dark ones from the 2006 cup run. Best Oiler jerseys ever.

Or all black with EDMONTON on the front, no logo.

If we truly get a rebuild of management and what not it would be cool to start a new era with new jersey's, but id imagine that wouldn't be till the new arena is built

I wouldn't mind a copper/gold + black (or extremely dark blue) third.

Awesome thread idea.

Gold on Black is boss.

If someone can rig a template that can be colored in mspaint, everyone could have their shot at trying a new color scheme.

Same jerseys, but with McDavid's face as the logo, imo.

Maybe it's time someone came up with a modern font for the word "OILERS" in the logo? I've never understood why the O and S don't follow the shape of the circle. I wouldn't like an entirely new logo, but even the Leafs, Habs, and Wings have seen updates over time.

For a third jersey I really don't have much of a preference aside from just saying whatever they do, they should keep it simple. Maybe something like the black ice jersey, but make it easier to actually see the logo and numbers. I think I'd prefer a black ice style black with the logo entirely copper, but I'm not sure how they'd make the numbers look good and still easy to see on TV. Maybe white or grey with a copper trim?

Been harping on my green & gold idea. Think it would be a great to pay homage to the Eskies, Golden Bears, and any other Edmonton team that wears that colour that I don't know about.

Would love it if the colours were just green and gold, with no white at all. I think that solid colour would look awesome. Green jerseys with gold lettering and piping. It looks so beautiful in my mind.

Also, I LOVE our '06 style jerseys. The whites were so damn sexy. I'd be thrilled with these as thirds or if they became our main jerseys again.

Every name on the back is "umad?"

That would be great for our next outdoor game ... which now also only seems like a matter of time.

It would also pay homage to Blades of Steel.

New team celebration too:



Penalty shots will be taken from the blue line.

Got to think now with McDAVID that they will not have any problem selling their current jerseys, and it won't be until the sales go stale that they add a third jersey?

A lot of people - myself included - would absolutely buy a 3rd jersey when I already own several of the current ones.

Ya, but they're going to sell a million McDavid jerseys this summer (I already bought mine), so they may as well wait, and bring a new 3rd jersey out in the new building

The top one is nice. You don't want to go too bright with the orange I think, it'll end up blinding people, lol.

This is kind of interesting. It seems unlikely that the Katz group would allow a mock Oilers logo on a casino going in the AED, so the design must have been given the thumbs up by someone in the OEG. I wonder if it's a preview of something?

I love the green and gold idea to pay homage to the Eskimos and Golden Bears. I love these jerseys, although I'm not sure how well it would translate to an Oilers jersey:
