As an Oilers fan, I think the new jerseys look much better than last year's. Unpopular opinion, I know, but I like the way the new shades compliment each other better than the old shades.

 

 

This is totally true.

 

The throwbacks were a fun nostalgia phase. But the new ones are a fresh, modernized take on the retros while maintaining regard of their team history. The new shades look brillant.

The navy on the home jersey should not touch the orange... If they kept last years striping pattern, but changed the royal to navy it would look much better.

Vegas are playing in white... at home

Most teams that unveil a new set or road jersey will generally wear it at home once or twice to show it off to the fans... I know the Minnesota Wild did it in 2014. I thought the Panthers, Coyotes, and possibly the Leafs did it over the last couple of years... I could be wrong about those last couple of ones though.

And paired versus the classic looking Avs in maroon/burgundy/sedona red (whatever the correct name is), it's such a beautiful non-O6 matchup...

I've only seen the whites in action and I think they look like garbage. Look the way you looked when you had a dynasty; it isn't that hard.

I wish the NHL would go back to white being the primary home jerseys.  I think the home teams should be in white more often than not across every sport

That's a never ending discussion around here. I think the advent of colour tvs has defeated the purpose of home teams wearing white.

Avs shoulder logos look ridiculous,  they are even pointing in opposite directions

Plenty of teams have shoulder logos pointing in opposite directions. I don't see what the issue is.

Yes, this isn't the KHL, our letters read left-to-right.

Issue is that the logos sucks.

You are from the UK i see,  that logo reminds me of the RAF   ;)

Who cares, look at the jersey straight on, looks awful.

 

Avs were best like this.

Everything since has been thrash, now they have tried to fix it, but they have still have not gone back to the true set.

Stripes are missing, and that Cubs logo on the shoulder.

Looking at the Vegas jersey, there’s not a single thing I don’t like. I wasn’t on board with the lack of black at first, but the pants balance it out perfectly. The white gloves actually work well, too.

Vegas' look is growing on me, though i do feel like theres something a little bit busy about them. Id put their unis in the top 15 in the league though. They're solid.

Chicago Blackhawks v Edmonton Oilers : News Photoedmonton-oilers-goalie-cam-talbot-watches-the-play-during-the-oilers-picture-id858106150?s=170x17

 

 

I wasnt a fan of how gaudy the oilers looked on ice last season so i welcome the navy. Sure its a little dark but i think its a nice change for now (of course they will go back eventually, relax) and theyre one of only a few teams who have made the collar look decent.

Do you make the same criticism of the Blackhawks?

I still have my home team wear white jerseys in the NHL games.
