I will be in the minority on this but I like the Oilers third jersey. I got to see the jersey live when they played in Philly and almost wanted to buy one. Much better than the Flyers third jersey, which turned into the road jersey. If I am going to spend over $100 on a jersey then I want something different, not just a change in color. Give me a new logo, look, colors, etc. Just give me some value for my money.
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
I was never wild about the Hartford Whalers jerseys or even the Quebec Nordiques - it was a really lame logo - as for 3rd jerseys, I HATE the Rangers Lady Liberty jerseys - they were even worse in white than they are in dark blue
and for those who might be interested in old WHA jerseys - check out this link - they really spent a lot of money on that Calgary jersey.....not
The new one that I don't like is the Nashville Sabertooth skull jersey.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
Don't kill me, that was a joke! I like the Liberty NYR jersey though. I don't really like it when the 3rd jersey is just a different color than the home/away jerseys. Then again, when they totally change the design and anything you associate with the team it gets hard to palate as well. The Sens 3rd one still freaks me..

I am among those that LOVE the Oilers third jerseys. I also like Vancouver 3rd jersey as well.
You all know the story about the new Logo on the Oilers 3rd jersey right?
First off there's the oil drop in the center of the gear to signify the old logo. The five bolts on the gear signify the 5 Cups they won. And the 10 teeth represent the 10 Captains in the history of the franchise.
That's a decent point, I'd imagine a more youthful team/ players would have more in the tank when overtime comes around. As older teams might really need that 2 minute break three or four times a 20-minute period...
