I probably won't be quite as quick - I still gotta decide on what player I want. Got a McDavid last year and already had an RNH that's too small.

I got myself a Lucic one and my best friend bought himself a Draisaitl one last week. Looks like I'll wait until those new ones come out before I buy a Larsson jersey.

Quick? You're telling me. Terrible Job DP. I expect a better effort. You'll never make it in the bigs, you practice like Eberle.

The only real issue I have is the lack of a classic historical jersey.

Dunno might just be me.


But I like how the Habs have minimally changed over a century (a few missteps at first). Same with the RedWings.

I hate the teams that change every few years. Like it loses its grandeur. The kings are a mess.

Most things are like that though

Not a fan. The light blue looks way better.

I really hope they do, it's dumb to have two different jersey templates.

I like the light blue on the orange but I would be good with them having navy on the whites.

I think when they bring back the navy blue for 2018-19 they will go back to the yoke-less design like this, but without the copper and red accents:

Dark blue looks unreal.

Bright blue/orange is way too loud to be wearing everygame.

God, that navy blue looks so much better. The royal looks washed out and faded.

Here's the 96-97 era white jerseys with the dark blue and with the blue shoulder yokes:



Not bad actually.

I like the navy blue but I don't think it goes well with bright orange. I hope I'm wrong..

Agreed, the navy is a real improvement. I hope that's the only change. Reminds me of the Otters' thirds.



Bright colour + dark to balance it out.

If I can figure out how to change the main jersey colour to white without it looking terrible I'll do it.

I'm with you on that. Although the navy blue makes them more palatable.

Are there plans to remove the huge numbers off the shoulders? I find it to be so amateur-ish, like something you would see in a ball hockey jersey. That's my complaint, i got no issues with going navy.

So my Mcdavid jersey ($240) and my wives orange ($140) won't even colour match the team on the ice. I refuse to buy another one. What an oiler move. Why cant we start tradition like the wings/ black hawks or bruins?

I'm still not overly happy about the change, but if they look like Del's pictures, then at least it could be worse. Those still are sexy jerseys, just a lot less sexy than our current setup. Since they're insisting on orange primary, then the navy works well with it.

Let's take a minute to remember how bad the change was for us last time we switched suppliers. Easily worst jerseys in our history.
