As an Oilers fan, I hate that we're going with the Orange jerseys. The Blue and Orange is classic. The Orange and Blue? Not so much.

I'm curious how the fanatics made jersey quality is going to be, and if it is worth getting the authentic. 

 

 

A rumor I've been hearing is that Adidas won't be making the made-in-Canada authentics available for sale.

Oilers switching to orange would be a big mistake.

Ottawa might use there 3rd and white version for next year

Doubtful, there's a possibility of a new red sweater for next year though.

someone clarify so i'm not confused, will there be authentics to buy?

 

The price points announced with the Fanatics deal were US$170 for replicas, US$360 for adidas authentics. No idea if those will be actual, Canadian-made 7387 authentics, or if adidas will continue Reebok's ripoff model of making lower-grade Indonesian "authentics" available through most retailers, with the real deal only sold by a privileged few.

Generally speaking, they're not available through normal retail right now. 

 

 

 

Meeting with our (now) Fanatics rep this week, supposed to have some samples with him. Will update if anything interesting comes down the line.

I'm really nervous about this Devils news...

Devils working green back into the color scheme perhaps? 


With the way the team has been playing, it may make sense to look like that discombobulated mess of a franchise from the 80's...

well, at least they'd be distinguishable from the other 47 red/black teams in the NHL

They are already. Outside of the Hawks, probably the best uniform on the ice. Classic and iconic. It's not their fault everyone tried to jump on the Red/Black bandwagon after them.

Of course the counter that is, I immediately think "green" when I think of the Devil...

I thought it would be wise to create a separate thread for next season.

 

What we know:

-Adidas is taking over the production of the on-ice jerseys. Fanatics will produce the retail jerseys.

-Alternate jerseys will not be worn during the 2017/18 season.

-Edmonton Oilers will promote their orange 3rd jersey to full-time home status.

 

Rumors:

-New Jersey Devils are reported to have a redesign in store.

-Washington Capitals are rumored to be returning to the retro jerseys full time.

 

*edit- also if a mod could move the posts from the 2016/17 thread to this one, that would be cool.

there was a guy on tsn1040 last week saying the canucks might get a complete redesign, saying there are going to wrap the orca and go with Johnny Canucks and stick and rink

 

 

go to 4134 mark

God, I hope the Capitals aren't serious about promoting those clown suits to primary status. Granted, their current uniforms suck as a whole, but at least they're more dated. What they need to do is promote the "W eagle" as the primary logo and just come up with something new for the uniforms (ones that don't include excessive piping and yoke).

If I could undo one uniform change it may very well be the Devils green to black change.  If they were to go back, I'd be ecstatic.  

 

That said, if the rumor of change is true, I'm more concerned they'll either mess with the logo or overhaul the stripping pattern.  In fact, I would guess they'd keep black and red, possibly add silver or something, keep the logo and screw up the stripes.  

 

Whatever they do with the colors, they need to keep a traditional template/style.  It's part of their brand.

 

(Though I still don't think a big change is coming)

If the Devils are to make a change I'm hoping it's only to the white jersey and make it look just like this.

Unpopular, but I love the Orca. Just ditch the script over the primary and make the orca's body more navy than black. 

 

Johnny Canuck's face on the full-body alternate and the "V" alternate just throws me off. The head is too square and 2D on the full-body, and the flow with the white space in between the V as the neck doesn't look right. 

 

The Orca itself seems more "Pacific Northwest" to me (as I've never lived there), especially with the facial features that make it look similar to an animal head on a totem pole.

From Michael Russo at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

 

Quote

The Wild is in the midst of deciding whether to go with red or green home sweaters. If the Wild chooses green, which sounds probable, the jersey likely will be slightly redesigned from the current third jersey.

 

Make the home a green version of the current roads, and we're done here, boys.
