Still no pictures of the Oilers roads? 

 

Nope.

 

Are they making last second changes or something? How do they know people aren't going to like it, if nobody had a chance to see it?

They can't make last second changes. There's already warehouses full of sweaters ready to be shipped and sold. The designs, for better or worse, are locked in.

My guess is the Oilers whites will be these with navy blue in place of royal blue.

But I could also see a reality where their stripes are orange - white - navy - white - orange in an inverse of the stripes on the new orange jerseys.

Um, guys? Need we remember what they wore at home the last time they wore the oranges full-time?

Shop.NHL.com now sells fidget spinners.

 

Just thought you should know.

Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting old, but I just don't get fidget spinners (and I have ADD), or why they are everywhere.

That'd make some sense if they had made the throwbacks they wore in the playoffs the full-timers, but they came out with a new uniform entirely.

There's a chance the roads will have an orange yoke outlined in navy, if they decide to base it on the throwback. If they use a navy yoke, it will look a lot like Buffalo, in a way. I'd go with orange.

It will soon go away, It´s just a fad, like Pokemon last year, and competitiveness in the NBA

One thing that has changed on the Canucks uniform is the socks. Now they have thin white stripes to match the jersey. I'm not a fan of these proportions. To me they have this bad 70's kind of look. The 3rd jersey stripes look so much better.

I'm not a fan of the new socks but the third jersey stripes are infinitely worse. The smaller amount of green being bordered by blue just turns it into a muddy mess. Combining that with the different stripe proportions and it becomes almost undetectable at a distance, which makes it look like a Maple Leafs jersey.

Pokemon will never go away, for better or worse.

I like how there are a bunch of teams left out but they feel the need to sell no less than three Pens versions.

Is it just me, or have Montreal's uniforms improved this year?

There's really not much in it, but I prefer last year's version. The collar was a bit nicer.

I'm just shocked that a product with a lot of teams not represented has the Predators. Usually, we're one of four teams they just don't make the product for.

Seeing the primary logo on the front of both sweaters again is great. While the green jersey has a few flaws, I think the home and road sweaters compliment each other.

Have we found out why the Knights logo no longer appears to have the teal in it. Not on the jerseys or merchandise that I've seen.

I was asking this a few pages back, too. Dunno, but I would like to !!! 

 

It definitely went from a dark tealish grey to just a flat grey... I was told that the teal was still there, but again, look carefully. Under no lighting does it look even remotely teal.

I could be wrong, but I think the greenish gray was only ever an issue translating between different color systems.
