My Design Idea For The Oilers' Alternates

Earlier today, OilFanInYYC called for the Oilers to change their 3rd Jersey to a primary color of orange as a tip of the cap to the Alberta and Edmonton Oilers of the WHA, something the franchise has been neglectful of to this point:

Although the blue and orange have been the relative main stay of the Oilers organization they have never really paid tribute to their WHA years, in fact, they flat out ignore the WHA years. 2013 will be the 40th year that the Edmonton Oilers have existed as a franchise (I turn a blind eye to the Alberta Oilers for this article) and as such the franchise should pay tribute to their WHA roots.

He showed a couple of design ideas, one from Icethetics and one of his own and asked for other design ideas and submissions from readers. Below is my concept for the 3rds, heavy on the orange:

Whl3rdjersey

It's more of a direct knock off of the Alberta Oilers original sweaters, heavy on the orange, with pinstripes replacing the armbands and side panels with similar stripe details replacing the waist stripe.
