Oilers Darkening blue to navy for jerseys next year

Cannot believe it. Reported by Chris Creamer's Sports Logos (the link is blocked).

Edit: The main jersey will remain orange. Just the shade of blue changes. Very Surprising.

I like that idea. I have for a long time. Navy/midnight Blue and orange.

Makes us look less like the Islanders.

We're also getting a road white jersey that is more in the style of the orange jerseys.

We are wearing orange homes either way, so we wouldn't be looking like the Isles regardless of the change.

It won't be terrible but, I wish they stayed with the Blue jerseys.
Any one have a mock of what they might look like ?

Edit:They'll probably be darkening the Logo as well if that's the case.

Ugggghhh why? I knew something like this would happen with Adidas. Time to grab another Reebok I guess before they are sold out.

I'm liking this idea. I miss the Navy Jerseys. Made us seem tougher for some reason.

Those navy ones represented the teams of the late 90's to 2000's where we didn't have a ton of talent, but we still worked hard.

I think the current blue jerseys have too many years of icky memories attached to them.

I'll wait until I see them, but I can't imagine they're going to look as good. The current colours are perfect

Agreed, I never did like any other colour schemes they've had.

Anyone think they may change the away jersey to match the original WHA road jerseys? Basically mirror the home jersey and change the blue shoulders to orange...

I didn't even like the idea of ditching our perfection jerseys, I super don't like ditching our perfection color scheme.

I'm a fan of the color navy but the blue works so well with the orange.
Hopefully it looks good. I'll be buying one regardless just a sucker for jerseys

The blue in the logo for sure needs to be darkened with the orange, way to light in HD

The dark navy blue could end up looking like black from far away.
Trick or treat?

It seems like they're going to do the navy blue on both the Orange and White jerseys, so that could still look good. I'm going to reserve judgement until I see it.

Colours would maybe be similar to these. I think the navy will be less dull on ours though, more boom (shine?) to it.

Kinda knew stuff like this would happen ... now that McDavid is here they need to cash in on the merchandising craze.

And of course in 2018-19 they will have the new "navy blue" third home jersey.

Anybody know when they will be available? Was hoping after the draft but TSN posted an article which had a Preds team-store sign saying they would be available in September. Was hoping to get one for the summer.

I'm thinking this is how they'll go with the whites. I think shoulder numbers is almost a guarantee(unless Adidas does some weird striping on the shoulders), but I think they'll flip the colors on the shoulder to match the WHA as well.

Hope not. I prefer the blue yokes on white. I think orange stripes but blue yokes. Like this:

I miss the old jerseys, too, but I'm not keen on some sort of half-breed of the two. Go full copper & blue, or don't imo. Guess we'll see how they look before I can really judge it.

As the Tavares picture above points out you're probably looking at something like this color wise:





Minus the weird triangle thing on the orange Islanders jersey.

I actually think it looks OK. I'd have to see the design, but for now I'm good with it.

I think navy blue looks better with orange than light blue does.
