    I'm guessing as the alternate. iirc teams can't make changes for the first two seasons of the Adidas contract.

    The Oilers looked perfect in 2016-17. Go back to those.

    Please be true.

    Those orange jerseys are hideous.

    I liked them at first but that striping doesn't work well on an orange jersey, and the navy is too dark. The numbers on the roads are also kind of a mess without a white outline in between.

    I'm still convinced the Hunter orange is half to blame for the home PK trouble.

    I actually grew to like the new jerseys throughout the year but still prefer out Royal Blues those were a thing of beauty.

    Looking back on this, I realize it's not the navy that I hate, it's the new brighter orange. That photoshopped jersey is sharp - as is the original one.

    I own three of them, but the orange jerseys are the ugliest things ever. How did we go from having one of the nicest jerseys in the league to one of the ugliest?

    Please go back to Blue. I'll always cheer for my Oilers, and I thought the Orange was an okay 3rd jersey... but this season has an orange stain all over it. Personally I would love to go back to the Navy jerseys. That is what I grew up with and loved. They were solid in the last cup run. But honestly, any Blue will do.

    Still prefer the Royal Blue and orange, but don't mind this concept. I would move the numbers to the sleeves and add a third logo like the Oiler worker from the 06 jerseys.

    All they need to do is swap the blue and orange around on the current home jerseys.

    Disagree. Orange yokes would look out of place on a navy jersey. I also think the current orange is too bright/fluorescent as it is.

    Years and years ago there was an article on fleury. They asked him why he got rid of his yellow pads. He said a season ticket holder was an eye doctor and told him yellow is one of the colors the human eye can see fastest.

    I couldn't help but think of this when wondering why such a discrepancy between home and away. Maybe full speed you have a millisecond to react those neon orange jerseys make it easier on the opposition?

    Still not a fan. Contrast is too jarring with all that orange on the yoke and not nearly as much orange anywhere else. I prefer the concept that was on icethetics (posted here by The Messiah).
