Hot new rumour on Twitter about the Oilers getting a new third jersey:

Quote:


@tyleryaremchuk

I've seen what the new jerseys will look like and I can say this: The mockup here by Marcel is 99.99% bang on. Great work! This is what the Oilers will be introducing as third jerseys next season

Good guess for sure

@mschoenhardt

Looking more at recent Adidas designs and the Stadium Series colour jerseys from last year, I'll update my guess to the attached (ignore the roughness of the mockup).

I did this mockup in 2011. I think I like it better than the rumoured third. (Though it does bear some resemblance to the Washington Capitals jersey in the 2000s).

Just my worthless opinion, but I don't mind a black base. I think black looks good and can be really used to make other colours pop (i.e. blue and orange). But in this case, I think the blue and white trim add to the overall look, and I really like white background of the logo. The rumoured one feels weird without it. It feels very "Canadian Tire"-like.

But then again, I also have no problem with the Oilers orange jersey (I like it), and I would be happy with keeping the orange & blue as the home and alternate. What the Condos have done with the navy blue is also pretty good.

Ugly! I mean the proposed one at the top not yours. The black is pretty sharp.

Yuck. That two-toned one is terrible. Looks like an Islander jersey.

Two tone jerseys like the above and the ones Pittsburgh and Philadelphia wore this season look like Wal-Mart knock offs. I will take an silly jersey from the 90s (stuff like the Gorton Fisherman and Burger King) over plain boring jerseys any day.

I'm surprised they haven't ever brought silver back into the colour scheme like with the McFarlane jerseys. That combination looked pretty sleek.

Why can't they just wear the Bakersfield Condor's dark blue style jerseys and call it a day? Let the orange jersey be the third and we're done?

Simple, update on the old boys orange and blue, and they look really nice!

Hopefully, like the pyjamas, it's a horrible flop and no one buys it. That's the only certain way to rid ourselves quickly of a jersey travesty.

People still bought the pyjamas. You gotta stay current. Hell, people bought the Halloween black and orange monstrosity. People are dumb.

Yes, but it was by far the lowest selling jersey the Oilers have ever had, and the miserable sales on it combined with the fact that everyone hated it, including all the management contributed to the team jettisoning it at the first possible opportunity.

I do wish they'd had some spines originally and never let it happen. That moment with Reebok was a good barometer for how much teams realized that they actually controlled their own fate.

You can tell who the 50 biggest morons in Calgary are by watching a playoff game and seeing who is wearing the Ronald McDonald jerseys. They clearly stick out.

For me I'd get rid of the current home orange and just go with the Royal Blue as the permanent home jersey.

The 3rd jersey should be either the inverse of the current orange (with the darker blue like Bakersfield has done) :

Or the 3rd should be an old WHA throwback, Bakersfield again :

Or, like I have said many times in previous other threads, just get the colors spot on from the old home jersey's that Nike made in the mid to late 80's, the greatest Oilers jersey IMO :

Slightly updated rumour:

@tyleryaremchuk

FWIW, I was told this was a prototype from the design process. But I was also told this is the jersey they've decided on.

Obviously, team has not confirmed anything

IMO they could have improved this with two changes

- Keep white in the logo
- Thicker orange on the bottom

Still wouldn't be my choice.

Also, keep an eye on what the helmets will look like

Maybe, like so much the Oilers do, this is a planned leak in order to see the reaction of fans before they actually do it?

On things like jerseys (unlike hockey-related decisions), I actually don't mind if that's the strategy - it generates a little buzz and you're able to create a little focus group for free.

Of course, it's the Oilers, so I could see this being one they charge blindly ahead on, while they continue to float trial balloons about trading Nuge or the like.
