Retro as in they messed up and need to get that jersey back into the rotation ASAP.

I think it is overrated. It is better than the retina burning orange they use now, but I think a darker blue works better with that orange.

Wish they did a navy jersey instead. Now they’re gonna cave to fan pressure and bring back the royal blue as the Home jersey next season and have a mismatching set for a couple years. 

 

It does make sense to wear the classic jersey for the 40th anniversary, but I feel like if you’re gonna change the colour scheme, it’s best not to compromise it right away.

I really like the new shades for the Oilers. The brighter orange, plus the navy really works. I love their road jersey. I think they should have just gone with the Home jersey but in navy or similar to the previous navy era look, instead of the orange jersey they have now. I feel like the Oilers hopped on the retro bandwagon with the orange throwback, thinking it was an orange bandwagon... So now they'll probably bounce around every so often, just to shake things up...

So, if the Oilers are only going to wear the retros only 4 times, are they still coming out with another alternate?  Seems strange to only wear them on 4 times.

They wear them one time against each classic Smythe Division opponent, pretty simple.

This is probably not their alternate.  I believe throwbacks can be worn less times, but the alternate usually has about 10 or 11 dates.

The team said last year that they were designing an alternate jersey to debut this season. Fan Day is on September 15th, so perhaps it will be unveiled as a surprise. I was really hoping to see a navy uniform added.

"We completely botched this new era and the new jerseys so we're bringing back the old ones as an apology."

Seriously, their new orange jerseys just aren't working out for me. They are awful. Should've stuck with the previous set.

Count me among those who like the Oilers' new jerseys. The retro would look good as a third, though.

Hope we don't have to deal with the Canada Is Actually Bad dorks freaking out that they're wearing Smythe Division uniforms against the Jets who are ACTUALLY the Thrashers (who were Actually Good)

Tbh, I would love to see the orange jerseys as the retro jersey and worn four times a year with the blue back as the primary home.

Enjoyment? Hawks looking like 1920's prison clothes ?

Definitely a confirms that the B logo from a few pages back is in fact brown. I feel vindicated.

So the Bruins WC19 jersey is a modern take on a hybrid of 1926-32 but with the logo of 1932-34.  As long as it is brown it is fine by me...
