Oilers ditching the blue jerseys, will wear orange "going forward"

http://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/edmonton-oilers/terry-jones-oilers-getting-futuristic-orange-as-crowd-gets-2006-loud-for-nhl-playoffs

Quote

At 9:39 p.m., Bob Nicholson popped the cork on the Oilers playoff plans to your correspondent. They weren’t going to do it until the Oilers officially clinched their first playoff position in 11 years. They weren’t going to jinx it. They weren’t going to announce their playoff plans until the result had been made official.

Then Oilers Entertainment Group vice-cbairman allowed himself to pop it.

The Oilers will wear orange in the playoffs and orange going forward to their future.

It’s not a fashion statement.

It’s a future statement.

I presume this means that since Adidas is only allowing one home set, it will be orange next year at home.

In fairness, that article doesn't mention whose jock strap he was wearing. So its possible.

Watching the Habs / Rangers and it looks like the white collar on the Habs jersey isn't ribbed anymore (like the leafs alt from last season, wild green alt)

anyone else notice this? Or am I just blind?

edit -  never mind I'm just blind.

Let's be honest. Who among us DOES not dress exactly like Wayne and Garth? Swap out the Hawks jerseys for an obscure minor league team and I'm there. All day. Even at work.

JB finally has the Leafs Centennial alumni game jerseys, though he got them sans patch so you will have to source that yourself

There are authentic patches on eBay

He also has goalie cuts.  I got a 58G which will be a Palmateer after this beauty!

And his brother (vince palmateer) was vice principal at my elementary school for a couple of years.  He would spend lunches with us sometimes trading hockey stickers.....good times

Yes, I'm also under the impression we'll be able to purchase Adidas authentics. The Canucks are giving away soon-to-be-released authentics to those who renew their season tickets:

I also reached out to @adidashockey on Twitter about the availability of authentics at the retail level, but they haven't responded.

They are "Authentic Retail Pro jerseys." That is what Fanatics will be selling as their equivalent, but not the on ice jerseys. It does not say that they are Adidas jerseys and Jersey Baron has said to some who asked that they will not be able to get the Adidas authentics.

Interesting.  It shows there are "customizable" jerseys as well as ones "Customized by Adidas to match what your favorite NHL players wear On-Ice."  Will this solve the problem of us having to look for on-ice lettering for each of our teams?

Well, it says that they are "252J Adidas NHL Authentic Pro jersey". But, that description in the link above reads an awful lot like anything said officially about a current Indo Edge.

Adidas may be hard pressed to meet all demand from pro teams for jerseys (hence only two uniforms for next year) in their Canadian factories, but I suspect they've got plenty of other locations round the world where they can churn out 'Authentic Pro' jerseys - Indonesia, for example.

There's also a worrying reference to clima-lite. Even though pro issue soccer jerseys are of a heavier grade than retail, that stuff does not really say 'hockey jersey' to me. Hopefully it'll be a different grade of the stuff (or will this be the difference between retail 'Authentic Pro' and actual authentic pro jerseys?)

From what I heard from JB, you can buy the Adidas equivalent to the indo-Edge at retail, but the made in Canada on-ice jerseys will be unavailable.

 

Take that for what its worth.

The code for the Canadian made adidas wcoh authentics was "7387".  This 252J could be the indo equivalent.

Just like with the edge switch it might take a year or two before Canadian made authentics become readily available.

I think this is what will turn out to be the most accurate info.  Basically you will have 3 options for next year:

1) On-ice jerseys (Made in Canada) - Will need to purchase either game worn or game issued jerseys.  JB and others will not have access to these.

2) Retail Authentics - Basically the successor to the Indo-Edges that will be available to the retail masses.

3) Fanatics replicas - Successor to the Reebok Premier replicas.

If not being able to get the On-Ice Jerseys is just for the first year or production, and as long as in year two they will be available, I am fine with that.  It will give me a chance to purchase discounted Reebok jersey I want but have not had a chance to get yet.  I just hope that at some point, we will be able to purchase them.  If they are eliminated completely, that would suck the big one.

My impression as well.  Regarding the retail authentics, I still find it amazing that a company would rather go through the trouble of creating an additional jersey production plant to make a redesigned authentic using different materials and making them in a different location, instead of just making more units of the exact same thing they are already making for the teams anyway.  Seems like the word "authentic" doesn't mean anything anymore.  Even so, if they used Canadian materials and outsourced the assembly for retails, like what Starter did using USA materials and assembling them in El Salvador, I wouldn't have much of a problem with that.  But if this is going to be another Indo-Edge situation, with an obvious difference in quality between retail and on-ice authentics, I most likely will quit buying new jerseys.  To this day I have never purchased an Indo-Edge.
