I believe they are brick (sedona) red.

 

Fair enough. :)

Unpopular opinion: single colour numbers look better and way more teams should have them.

Henrik+Sedin+Ryan+Kesler+Montreal+Canadi

 

 

As beautiful as those Canuck unis are, I feel the green should be "a little" lighter to make it stand out from the blue. I still stand by my argument that having a green border on the font would give the Canucks their own font identity(current Agency font is weak). The Sabres have a yellow border on their away blue font, the Islanders and Oilers have orange, the Canadiens have red(the old single border is a classic) and even the Jets have a powder blue with their navy. A green border on blue would look beautiful and distinctive. I've seen concepts as well as merchandise and it works.

Am I the only one who HATES the new Oilers jerseys?

 

I think they were a massive downgrade from last year.

I want to like them, but I find that the navy they chose is just too dark. I understand the desire to contrast with the brighter orange, but it muddies the design, I find.

It's not even close how much better EDM looked a year ago.

 

Last year, those orange jerseys were absolutely perfect. This year- an abomination.

 

Biggest downgrade in the league by far.

I'd say it hurts the current uniform, too, that the navy arm stripe is so thin. When you have a color so dark it appears black from distance, you need to go big with it. I find it televises so dark it appears to be a black arm band. Just my 2 pennies.

The only thing the Oilers had to do was move the shoulder numbers to the sleeves and it was perfect. Their new look is growing on me, but will never be on the same page as the ones from last year.

Maybe they're mourning the death of their offense?

I think the Oilers should drop the navy yokes on the road white only.

No, the Hawks need a little more red on the whites and the red number trim handles that well.

 

It also makes the numbers muddier (especially on the sleeves), and changes their tone relative to the solid black stripes.

 

There’s a red stripe on both arms, the waist, the pants and the socks, as well as all three logos. More than enough.

Someone bought a game worn jersey and this is the only way to identify if it is genuine...  The fabric is indeed made in Canada.

It's probably the lighting making the current set look drab but I still prefer last years set over this. I just wanted them to move the numbers form the shoulders to the arms. I didn't want them to completely change the colors. Oilers had a classic set right when things were finally going right for them and they decided to ditch it completely. That's just a shame.

I disagree. The last time they wore navy, dropping the navy yokes from the white jerseys made the design worse.

I think the new Oilers white jerseys are the best they've ever worn. I strongly prefer the navy.
