This can't be a left leak of a Leafs 3rd?

^^One of you missed the joke... 

 

I think the Orange and Navy look for the Oilers will work better than it did the Islanders Alt. Mostly because (and I'm assuming) the Oilers are going to wear orange socks, and not navy like Islanders did.

The Oilers are probably gonna have a pseudo-throwback, a nod to the WHA look with modern twists. With the color change officially announced, they gotta have a matching road. I can't see them using 2 different blues.

For whatever it's worth, I called up the Blue Jackets team shop after I saw this story yestertday morning and asked if they're expecting any major changes....the only answer I got was that "they would look like the originals". Not sure if they meant the inaugural jerseys, or the current ones.

 

If so...I wonder if they'll look something like this:

As far as the Bruins are concerned, I know I'm probably the only one, but I'd love to see these make a comeback:

Just fix the sock stripes to match the sweaters and it's the best they've ever looked, IMO.

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. 

First off I'll go by saying I liked the Isles having an orange alt and quite frankly if they left the side striping thing out those probably would've stood the test of time more. But again, the side striping thing throws it down a bit. A color swap alt would be kind of cool.

 

But on the other hand, although I'd rather see the Oilers stick to what they've got with royal primary and bring back the orange as an alt in 2018-19, the orange primary and navy secondary's looked good for the Syracuse women's team so I can see it working for the Oilers' jerseys more than the Isles' old alts.

I think you're right... you are the only one.

Boston just needs to ditch the outlines on the names.  Their 2007 redesign gave me so much hope for the EDGE system.

The Bruins have one of the best sets in the league- and that's coming from a Habs fan. You guys want a yellow away uni? The B's belong in black. Give em an alt if need be.

What was going on with these? Was their any meaning behind the spikes shooting in the general area of the player's crotch?

That looks good, but I don't like the socks stripes not matching the hem stripes. I'm open to a lot of possibilities so long as it's not a full adoption of the alternate uniforms with matching road, but we've already heard that's not happening. Sticking with blue red and white with the flag logo is the way to go. 

 

I think I'd like it if they went with blue pants with the regular uniforms

This era had the best version of the Bruins logo.

With the release being less than a month away for 13 teams, I am pretty impressed we haven't seen any leaks yet.

Sabres removing all silver and ditching Navy blue. Going back to Royal so I guess Buffalo and Edmonton are trading shades of blue

If true, it's a good change.

The Sabres got it half right, but kept the blue too dark and went piping crazy.

According to the HFboards Sabres section, the "insiders" are some radio jockeys who people didn't even know where on the air still.

 

I am not counting that as a trusted source.
