Its up to you whether that matters or not.
Thanks, all give it some thought, then its possible if I wait it out a bit that the Reebok will be cheaper? or probably just discontinued

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.



Both are bad, but my god the whites were just horrendous. Straight up practice jerseys

I wouldn't mind a orange home and a blue away jersey. I also wouldn't mind if they wore these logos from years past (only for a few games, though):

The more I see that navy blue, the more sad I feel. They look like the Isles jersey during their **** 2002-2007 era. I hope this source is wrong and they stick with royal blue.

They're discontinued. Reebok isn't shipping anymore. So what ever's left out there is all there will be. I know United Cycle in Edmonton had to buy a bunch from other stores across the country so they would have some jerseys for playoffs. They might be hard to find.

So?

The Oilers have shared a similar colour as the Islanders pretty much their entire existence. So we can't have a colour scheme because a team had it for a few years and wasn't amazing?

The darker blue looks better than royal blue. Just as the muted orange will probably look better with the darker blue than our current orange does.

These are probably going to happen for some of the inevitable future outdoor games we have, with McDavid we'll be in demand for several more I would guess.

I would like to see the numbers moved to the sleeve.

As long as they don't mess around with the orange, I'm fine with it. The orange jersey was made to be worn by McDavid. Kid looks much faster when he's wearing orange

This part I disagree with, but I agree that the Isles' history shouldn't be a consideration. But I love our current shade of orange. Hate muted orange. But the navy looks decent.

Are they thinking of changing the orange as well? Is there a legit source on this? I thought they're only changing the blue

I'm like 60% certain the only source on that change is this sentence by this fellow.

I don't think there has been any real source claiming the orange is changing.

I really don't understand either. They make the switch to Orange jersey over Blue and then they don't even stick with the same colours.

I'm not sure about the accuracy though, seeing as it's just what he's heard. We can basically confirm the darker blue, but the orange has been largely unreported.

Maybe it's just that adidas has different shades that they want to try?

I'm okay with this. The current orange looks too much like a pylon orange, it hurts my eyes. I can live with a less pylon-y orange and navy blue.

If they can darken it and move the numbers down it might be the best jersey ever.

honestly, he talks like he is unsure. I think its an optical illusion from darkening the blue. the guy who photoshopped theMcDavid jersey to give an estimate of the tone of the new jersey actually had a crossover effect minimally but noticeable to the orange as well (got darker).

wait until we see them I guess.

personally I think its a jinx to switch the colors...but they have a new supplier so changes might be made just for that (last I checked...ADIDAS owned RBK// and Bauer is NIKE...so not even changing companies as much as the actual sourcing factory/label)
