It's a big CAPITAL W on the chest lol. Does that count?

 

Why specifically 3 seasons? Anything I'm missing? Ownership? End of league wide contract with adidas? Such an arbitrary number

 

This is the standard min. length of Third jerseys, been that way since Reebok.  I thought this was common knowledge.

There are exceptions though...the Ducks' black alts were only for the 25th (2018-19), and I think the Capitals' throwback alts only lasted two season in the adidas template (2018-20). 

 

And does the 3-year rule apply to the Kings and Blues 90s throwbacks (though the Kings said it's permanent). Is the Blues 90s jersey coming back in 2021-22 (no complaints if so)?

If the Oilers inverted the orange and the navy on the jersey below 👇, I don't think large bright orange shoulder yokes would look very good.

The orange works here because it's a light color with dark yokes, stripes, numbers, etc. Not the reverse. Navy would work best imo, if they removed the yokes on a navy jersey and kept some orange highlights only. White numbers on navy as well.

I don't know, i think they would look great !

^ The Oilers' AHL team has been using a navy jersey the past few seasons.

I prefer the royal and orange. The three jerseys they wore from 2015-17 were nearly perfect.

The navy looks gorgeous! I still prefer the royal, simply cause its brighter, but I wouldn't complain if they went with the navy.

The navy photoshop is not terrible. But the orange/navy jersey pops more.

 

It helps that on the orange, you have the yokes match the pants to balance out all the colors better.

Yeh, I'm pretty sure I would know.

 

The three years is for a true 3rd jersey.  Anniversary jerseys, one night retro jerseys etc... are not 3rd jerseys and are petitioned separately.

How many current third jerseys will be replaced next year? :)

Changing the numbers/captain patches from double outline to single outline would help a lot. The extra outline is ok on the white jerseys, but it muddles things on the blue (navy or royal).

The Coyotes' will be for sure since the brick red is now considered their third jersey. I'm sure that they'll make the change back to the kachina jerseys full-time with the move to the Central Division.

I think a 4 jersey set is perfect for the NHL - home, away, heritage, and alt/third. I'm cool with the RR program being added this year just for fun, but don't want a new program every year.

IMO, this really highlights how bad the orange cuffs look. Right jersey without the orange cuffs and current solid navy blue gear would be the ideal amount of orange for the home jersey. Then maybe keep the ugly orange jersey as the third option since management really seems to like it

The only acceptable Oilers primary, home-uniform.  They had it perfect in 2012, why experiment with orange and navy now...
The The The was was a great place place in in my pppppppppppppp

Man, the inability of helmet manufacturers to make a helmet with the right shade of royal blue always made this set and other royal sets look incomplete. Just a detail that drives the uniform nerd in me crazy.
 

On the other hand navy helmets almost always look a shade too dark. 
 

Ultimately, the Oilers organization just make decisions based off money so once people stop buying the navy/orange versions, they’ll change it up again. They went back to the 80’s jerseys in the first place just because they knew how well they would sell.
 

I doubt we’ll ever see a navy version of the 80s template, because they had the chance to do it in 2019 and they came up with the mediocre third they have now. I am surprised they’re pushing the navy third a lot because I figured they chose an intentionally different design so that it could stay as a third and wouldn’t undermine orange as the home colour.

Exactly. Royal blue is better of course, but since they wanted to go navy blue, that was the correct way. And they blew it

The Avs finally released their RR and Third jersey schedule

Why are they wearing those RR vs Anaheim? That matchup is gonna look awful. Granted, most uniform matchups look awful when the Ducks are involved, but still. Seems like a waste to me

I think the Ducks are wearing their orange uniforms for both games. My question is why they decided to wear them against Vegas for all 4 home games. Sure one of them is the game in Tahoe, but you couldn't mix in games against any of St. Louis's dark uniforms or LA's Reverse Retro?

If they have to do navy, go like that, and then have either an orange or royal base for the alternate and BINGO! Perfect look.
