Third Jersey

Hey Guys

This is kind of weird question, but does anyone know if the Oilers third jersey will be available in white?

Thanks !

I'm guessing not for game jerseys. I have seen practice jerseys in grey though.

That's what I thought, but I was on the official site and it gives the games that the Oilers will be wearing their third and for some of the games it lists "white". Unless its something new.

I saw that too & it does seem wierd... I just thought that those were the days that the other team was wearing their third jersey.

They have switched the jerseys worn by the teams this year. Home is now dark. Away is now white or light colours. This was so that the teams only had to take 1 jersey on the road.

What puzzles me is that the third jersey with the Oildrop was black. According to how the chart reads, it looks as if it will also be in white. I guess we'll find out soon enough

I realize this, but check the page yourself... there's clearly less than 42 away games. The page is dedicated to the third jersey and when it will be worn.

http://edmontonoilers.com/features/thirdjersey.htm

I don't think there's a white third jersey, but they were less than clear as to what the top part of the chart means.

It most certainly appears that way doesn't it!!!!! COOL!! But why wouldn't they! I mean heck, how many third jerseys do you think they sold?!? How many white ones will they now sell...... and isn' there a certain time span for small market teams to get the revenue from jersey sales? I think small market teams should get the vast majority of those kinds of sales all year.... I mean that would go a LONG way......

The the road team is white all season. Why would they show it then?

Assuming I understand what you're confused by -

They will be using the dark jerseys at all of the home games except for the games on that list, where they will wear either their white road jerseys or their third jerseys, on the indicated dates.

The games mentioned where they wear white are all road games.

The problem was that teams would have to take 2 jerseys with them on the road. I remember one road trip that Ottawa had to the west. They wore their road jersey in Edmonton and Vancouver but had to wear white in Calgary.

In football, road teams have been white for who knows how long. I like it.

I like it too. White is sort of an anonymous colour, not the colour of any team. This way the home team can wear their colours at home, and the less disinctive white on the road.

On the other hand, I seem to remember the NHL admitting that this was mostly a marketing thing, saying that people prefer to wear the jerseys they see the team play in, but would also rather buy dark ones because white is so hard to keep clean.

I think that the league have a rule so teams can only have 3 jerseys. It's why we don't see the Rangers 4th jersey (their 3rd in white) anymore.

Watching one of the oiler games last year, I saw someone in the stands wearing a white version of the 3rd jersey.

I posted it on here, and no one seemed to know about them.

It looked fantastic, and I was thinking later on that maybe someone did custom jerseys for maybe a hockey team using that pattern and symbol...

Actually, the home team gets to choose in the NFL... the Broncos were recently fined because of this.

I like the dark jerseys at home. Actually, until sometime in the 70's it was always that way in the NHL.

I called Champions today to see if the third jersey Oildrop will be available in white. The answer was "no". If that's true then the chart on the official site is misleading.

I don't think they make the Rangers Liberty Jersey in white anymore for the same reason. I haven't seen one in about two years.

Notice now that they have removed the misleading part of that page.

Just for something extra, at NHLUniforms.com there isn't a 4th jersey for the Oilers with the new logo in whites, but there is a 4th and 5th jersey in the heritage style. Maybe they are wearing the old White, Blue and Orange for those 5 games.

That would be awesome. I noticed a lot of uniform changes on the site... it says a vintage Montreal jersey will be unveiled soon, and it looks like a number of teams (Van, NYR, StL, Tor, Bos) will be playing some games in their vintage silks.

There are some great looking unis in the league now (although still some crap too!!)

Notice the back of the jerseys say "Comrie" now.
It used to be Marchant....and maybe by next month it'll be "Smyth"?
