I never realized the Oilers wore plain blue pants with those jerseys at any point. In the playoffs this year they wore their regular striped pants with the orange jersey.

I actually like this better.  The navy helps balance the bright orange.

Neither did I and I watch every game, heh. They dropped the plain pants after last season.

From the Yahoo Sports article on the subject. "The Devils have been one of the most intriguing names on this list, and Creamer punted on offering details because he knows too much. Everything we’ve heard was that the logo is safe, the colors are still black and red, and that the biggest change might be the black “belt” coming off the bottom part of the sweater." If this is true what a terrible change for change sake move.

Ugh!  Hemstripes look good, stop removing them!

The Bruins' current home/away set is flawless, I really hope that these rumored 'changes' only involve an alternate of some sort.

Yea I'm pretty nervous for this Devils jersey. Sounds like a change for change sake, and most likely a downgrade....so disappointing, especially for a team with such a strict uniform tradition.

No alternates next year so likely not. I hope it's just a different cut changing the yoke or something slightly and that being it.

So..... Orange & Navy for the Oilers? I didn't know they were the Islanders. 

The Islanders blue is lighter than the current blue used by the Oilers.

Kind of happy the Oilers are switching to Navy. It complements the orange better and I've always felt Royal and Orange clash when put together. I guess that's why I always would get a headache looking at the Blue 80s jersey. Too much competition between the two colours or something like that.

I'm talking about this:

I know the Islanders use a lighter blue, but a Orange dominate jersey with Navy as the secondary was 1st done by the Islanders & it looked terrible. The idea works on paper.... but I feel the balance is off & it won't work for the Oilers.

My Dallas prediction (not a wish, but a prediction):

 

Different font, maybe same font with outlines.

A road jersey more in line with the home jersey? No yoke?

Death of the tie-up collar.

 

Worst case realistic scenario:

Roundel to main crest, more black usage, outlined font.

 

 

 

I'd love to just see green helmets at home instead of black...... Take us closer to green and black rangers than green Blackhawks... But that wouldn't count as a redesign would it?!

Well, shoot...sounds like my favorite matchup in the NHL is likely out the door.

It just won't look nearly as good with the Oilers in navy.

This is still the best alternative uniform the Islanders ever had.

I don't mind them, but I feel like the Adidas designers probably twitch when they see how busy the Bruins' names/numbers are. That's a lot of outlines for those tiny names. I don't think it looks great, but I do like that it's a recognizable Bruins thing.

 

The Sabres don't have the best decision-making record, on or off the ice, in the last ten years or so. I'm extremely nervous. The current jerseys are far from perfect, but they're not embarrassing.

When did this become official? I thought they were just switching to the orange jersey. Just the whites would change a little(orange yolks or something). I was bitching about my Oilers shirts being navy. Or the logo on my orange hat/shirts looking more navy than royal, kind of a tweener.

I'd like to see this as the Bruins away (with black helmets):

 Yellow helmets are a natural with yellow jerseys. Beautiful and unique. Yellow/Athletic gold as a primary should be utilized like white
