Quote:

For the jersey geeks (like me), expect the Oilers to make the navy uniform the team's primary home look while sprinkling in some games using the orange next season. A return to royal blue could come after, perhaps with a modernized look. Haven't heard anything on reverse retros.


One concept I have seen thrown out there:

I’m pretty tired of them changing jerseys although I would probably prefer a navy blue to the current orange.

It sounded to me like they were rolling with the current navy jerseys, so if so, yuck. If they make them better, I'm intrigued.

The current navy jerseys are among the worst the Oilers have worn, and easily the worst of the four last year. I really hate how they are trying to force those on fans and boost sales.

Also will be highly disappointed if we don't get more than three games out of those beautiful Reverse Retros.

Oh I see, yes I read it that way too now.

That would be the worst thing to happen…

Totally disagree. I think the current navy jerseys look amazing on the ice and also think the reverse retros are second worst in the team's history to only the navy pajama jerseys (2008-11).

Eye of the beholder, etc!

I'll grant you that the orange pants and gloves do the jersey no favours for the Reverse Retros. Would look better against blue pants and gloves. But I think that jersey is fire.

Honestly, if they put a normal crest on the navys, it would have made a big difference. But watching on TV, the orange doesn't stand out enough at distance and, you can't even tell there is a crest on the front of the jersey. It all blends together and looks like a practice jersey. In-person and on-ice is slightly better than on TV, but the crest is still almost hidden into the rest of the jersey.

I agree with you on the two-tone navy uniforms. Among the worst the Oilers have ever worn.

The pants and gloves for the retros were terrible. Didn't mind the jersey itself.

According to Gregor on twitter, the players didn't like the outfit, and didn't want to wear it more, so it may really be 3 and done.

I question your eyesight. Hahaha.

Three jersey's have killed my spirit. The 2 sets of pyjama jerseys and this terrible blue jersey we wore this season. This last rendition is better suited for a pair of blue jeans and is so far away from the jersey scheme I love.

Although winning is first and foremost, part of the fan experience is seeing a nice jersey representing your team. A nice jersey can win over a new fan without ever seeing the product play on ice.

Our current atrocities would look better tucked into Wayne from Letterkenny's beltless blue jeans.

Oscar - I saw them on the ice and although better in person, they do not present well on TV. Most of the fan base will never see a live game. Oil marketing team must do better. Selling jerseys in Canada is like selling a shovel in Saskatchewan, during January. People will buy regardless, but shoot your shot on the 3rd jersey. If people love it, then maybe consider making the switch full-time.

The current Navy is not universally loved.

Yup nice jersey are cool to have but if they are losing, fans or new fans are probably not going to buy them. Everyone likes a winner.

I don't know - the midnight blues were released in the mid-90s when we hadn't won much for a while. The Spawn jersey in the early 2000s when all we ever did was lose to Dallas. The Sharks jerseys were among the league's most popular when they joined, despite being an absolutely terrible team.

I don't think winning and jersey sales are entirely connected.

Maybe you stumbled in to the wrong conversation then. This is a conversation about the jerseys, so if you don't care about them, then maybe not worth commenting on it. Especially if you're going to get annoyed about people responding to your comment.

100%. Winning likely plays the least significant role in jersey sales. Colour. Design. Marketing. The navy jersey went 0 for 3, imo. Although slight, it does take away from my enjoyment on the overall package of the Oilers.

Bright side? I will not be spending $300 on this jersey and that is cash that can be directed to nice rum and cigars.

It's

If Hall signs that throws a wrench into the big jersey retirement night doesn't it? Oilers vs. Rangers I assume.

No chance Lowe lets him have it. In fact, that may be one of the reasons the Oilers have apparently not pursued Hall last year in free agency or at the trade deadline. Much easier to take it off Kris Russell who no one cares about!

That Hall home Jersey to be authentic should probably be reinforced with armor to guard against whipping in case he doesn't light it up for the Oil...😏

If Hall signs that throws a wrench into the big jersey retirement night doesn't it? Oilers vs. Rangers I assume.


No chance Lowe lets him have it. In fact, that may be one of the reasons the Oilers have apparently not pursued Hall last year in free agency or at the trade deadline. Much easier to take it off Kris Russell who no one cares about!


Hall will be 19 (Koskinen being gone) or 91 if returns. The narrative will be, it worked for Jesse. Fresh start. New beginnings.

Lowe goes to the rafters and I miss my first jersey retirement night out of protest.

If/when Lowe's jersey goes up, it's going up because of what he did as a player. But sadly, there will always be classless people who won't separate what he did as a player vs any beefs they may have with him in management

Wayne Gretzky, the greatest player of all time was a lousy NHL coach. So because he is the same person, that means you piss on his legacy as a hockey player?

When Wayne Gretzky figured out he wasn't cutting it as a coach after just a few years, he moved on from the profession and the Coyotes.

Lowe failed upwards, hired all of his buddies, sunk the franchise, and wasted all of our time and money for two decades.

I think I would be tempted to boo the organization for retiring the number of a player that was never even the best defenseman on any Oilers team he was on, let alone one of the greatest in the league to warrant jersey retirement.

I don't think fans should be expected to ignore the fact that Kevin Lowe was/is the the architect of arguably the worst run sports franchise in the past 20 years, and one of the worst couple decades in NHL history, but even if we did, what did Kevin Lowe do as a player that makes him worthy of jersey retirement?

He knows something about winning. I have no idea how Lowe made the HHOF and I can accept a jersey retirement based on past requirements to have your number being honoured, but I will in no way support this honour. Like I’ve said before, I’ve been to all of the previous jersey retirement nights and enjoyed the ceremonies. Messier night, not being my favourite as Lowe marred that evening for me, but it’s a special night for people in my age bracket and older. It was a special time to be an Oilers fan.

I will watch the game on TV. I will skip the ceremony. For all the good Lowe has done as a player, he’s been a bigger contributor to the demise of a once great franchise. He’s not worth paying $400 to boo.

Happy they tossed the orange, no mojo, like navy as base colour, I'd like the current Navy better if they simply just exchanged the "orange" Oiler logo for the standard..
