Made a quick mockup of what I think they might look like. Not really a fan of the orange one tbh.

Not a fan of the orange at all. It's well received because of nostalgia and McDavid but to me it's rather ugly. Love a move to darker blue though, the darker blue from 1996-onwards was a much nicer look.

Our away jersey just went from best in the NHL to crap.

Disagree. I like the navy on the whites. I just hate it on the home orange jerseys.

Not bad. They're about equal I'd say. Can you do one for the Oiler blue and Oiler whites with the darker hue?

I highly doubt that the template will be the same. More likely we go to a set of white road jerseys using the same template as the orange jerseys.

I like

edit: Actually I love these. I hope this is how they look, there will be some adjustments like the adidas striping but oh my lord these are beautiful.

Looks way better, current blue is too washed out looking, this just pops more. Take my money!

Still prefer the old copper and navy but this is a lot better than the current washed out blue.

Damn.

I do love the royal blue, but that navy logo really pops.

Looks like a sneaky way of getting more jersey sales but i doubt people will go out and get a new jersey just because the blue is a bit darker

Del's shops look a lot better than they did in my head. Still a little too close to the Islanders for my liking, but they look good.

Thanks for those mock ups Del, gave me some faith in the new look. Hopefully it is somewhat similar to what you have done, although we should expect some other minor changes with Adidas.

Just taking Del's photoshops as the projected look, I think both road and home look phenomenal with the darker blue. Gives me a bit of a more professional vibe, like a step forward.

If they look like Del's mockup, I'll be quite pleased. Really starting to grow on me.

Haha i like how ppl went from hating it to actually liking it once they saw the mock. I actually like the navy blue better as well esp for the logo. If it's close to the mock I'm fine with it.
