With all the guys away at NHL camps I hope the team gets a few back before the home opener Sept 20th!! I'd hate to be a WHL GM and have to guess who's going to be back and who's not. Any guess's on opening night roster?
Looks like it's going to be a King, like on a deck of cards. Would have liked a darker green. Don't think the lime will do it justice. Will be interested to see it though.
I have a "Burger King" Gretzky LA Kings jersey, so my tastes in jerseys are admittedly terrible, but I'm really looking forward to this jersey. They needed something fresh and new to call their own, and the lime green on black will "pop". A third jersey was long overdue.
Oil Kings had a 5-2 lead going into the 3rd and lost 7-5! Dea let in 5 on 17 shots, I think he'd be better off spending this season in Midget as he hasn't seemed to had a great training camp and Pre-season while Santos has showed well and could be a VG back-up to Jarry. Nice to see they finally scored some goals in a game with 3 from the forwards and 2 from the D.
I could see us battling for a playoff spot, but I have a feeling there won't be a rubber match with Portland.
That would be sick. Would have to be ala Kootaney a couple years ago (ie a solid but unspectacular team catching fire and running roughshod in the playoffs) if it were to happen though, not a clash of the titans as in recent years.
Playoffs are definitely doable- IMO, with the right mix of players coming back and a good year from Jarry I could conceivably see us, without bias, winning a round or two.
Just curious do you have an inside source? Because that'd be wicked!
Hell no. Just reading between the lines here. For the Oilers third jersey in 2001, Todd McFarlane unapologetically used the Dallas Cowboys color scheme. The Seahawks colors are hugely popular right now. But the green is a little too pukey and the Oilers exhausted the use of navy.
