I LOVE these jerseys... But what was the point of a big unveiling when they're the vintage jerseys? Why not just say "We're going to wear our vintage jerseys as alternate jerseys this year."?

I would also like to see the Oilers bring back their 2002-2007 alternate jerseys. Those were HOT!!!

2008-10-17T09:04:00.000-04:00

Once again, old is better. This jersey never should have changed in the first place...
Another question though, with all those captains, wouldn't it be easier to find a guy who ISN'T an Oilers captain? Just saying...

Love it also!! FINALLY, some old-fashioned SHOULDER BARS!! And bright colors with no black overtones!

Love it! LOVE IT!! As a long-suffering Canucks fan who hated the Oilers during their glory years, I always had a soft spot for these classic sweaters. Royal blue and orange look so great together and they say "Edmonton Oilers". These uniforms are colourful, but simple and traditional. Does anybody remember the January 1982 edition of Sports Illustrated with Wayne Gretzky on the front cover?

2008-10-08T22:11:00.000-04:00

I like this new jersey. I honestly was not a big fan of the McFarlane Oilers 3rd. It was too... well it looked like a Chevy Kings style jersey with a new logo.

The collar though I don't think I like. Looks like its incomplete but other then that I think it looks fine.

I looked on the site, you can preorder this jersey already and they finally did something smart! They brought

2008-10-08T19:43:00.000-04:00

Bravo Edmonton Bravo!!! That's the way a retro uniforn is supposed to look. I like the sabres new 3rds but HATE the silver piping crap. Now hopefully my Pens will follow suit and create a 3rd or even all new uniform when they move into the new Arena. Maybe, I don't know, the '91 - '92 Cup uniforms!

2008-10-08T14:49:00.000-04:00

well this is actually a little different than the 79 sweater as the stripes around the waist are MUCH smaller and there is more blank space around the crest



are you kidding, the slug a godly logo?

2008-10-08T14:45:00.000-04:00

2008-10-08T10:21:00.000-04:00

The slug is a godly logo, way better than the sheeps head and the original, but I love the original with silver piping. Oilers third is boring we need something new, Blues are way better by far than all third jerseys released so far.

2008-10-08T10:14:00.000-04:00

Wow, involved their fans in the process? What a crazy idea! Great job Oilers!

I love what the Sabres ended up with for their third, but a focus group might have nixed the silver piping, not to mention what they would have done to the slug back when that decision was being made.

Should have gone with the standard collar.

Otherwise, awesome.

I think we can go ahead and say that they win this third jeresy thing.


Came here to say this.

wasn't disappointed.

2008-10-07T19:27:00.000-04:00

I like that they're doing the whole kit and caboodle. Sometimes, they just change the sweater, and it looks dorky with the different colours.

Now I have to scrounge up $140 or whatever for this come November. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

2008-10-07T17:32:00.000-04:00

I'm a fan of these. I've been waiting to start an NHL 09 franchise based 90% on if I liked this third jersey, and it turns out I am liking it quite a lot. Instead of my Caps, I may go with the Oil now.

2008-10-07T17:29:00.000-04:00

Apparently the Oilers goalies are even going to have unique masks and pads that they will wear with this jersey. Dwayne Roloson will have a Grant Fuhr replica mask and pads. Matthieu Garon will have a mask that will be a Fuhr/Ranford/Garon fusion. Nice touch!

2008-10-07T17:04:00.000-04:00

s-m and lance there are actually 4-5 collar styles for RBK Edge jerseys. The Hurricanes new 3rd jersey has a more triangular collar. There is the lace, this Oilers 3rd collar, the Sabers Home/Away, Calgary Flames and a few more. Quite a few styles out there to choose from.

Great jersey! This will look awesome once they redesign their home/away jerseys.

Hey Chris, for the Pittsburgh jersey countdown, you have it listed as the Blackhawks. just wanted to point that out to you

2008-10-07T14:24:00.000-04:00

s-m the oilers apparently wanted a triangle affect but obviously them and rbk/nhl compromised in the end.

dan, sorry for the confusion.

2008-10-07T13:37:00.000-04:00

only thing i dont like about this jersey is the neck. it looks weird to me. other then that, its sweet. sabres and oilers got the best so far.

2008-10-07T13:25:00.000-04:00

good job on the oilers' part. their fans got what they wanted.
the next move for them is exchange their super ugly white jersey for the vintage white.

2 interesting things about the last two new thirds: the collar.
RBK managed to impose a single style of collar to all NHL teams (we could say 2 styles if you count the lace up).
however, the leafs' and oilers broke the trend.



I'm sure the focus groups unanimously agreed they ...

2008-10-07T13:24:00.000-04:00

I'm sure the focus groups unanimously agreed they only wanted to wear the uniform for 14 games this year too...

Like the Sabres New Third, the Oilers jersey should have been introduced as "The New First Jersey"



Too bad I have to wait till Nov 18 to get it :S
