PRE-GAME RANT

The Edmonton Oilers kick off their season tonight at home against the Winnipeg Jets.  They do so with their newly named captain(14th) Andrew Ferrence.  He has exhibited great leadership from the day he stepped into the dressing room and has been a great asset to the community outside of the rink since his arrival.  He’s homegrown and seems to be a perfect fit to help guide our youth.

Aside from Ference, the Oilers have added a number of new players to the lineup this season.  More notably David Perron, Boyd Gordon and Jesse Joensuu up front.   Anton Belov, Denis Grebeshkov on D and Labarbera to back-up / share the load with Devan Dubnyk.  More recently the Oilers have also added Steve MacIntyre and Luke Gazdic to up the team toughness.

PRE-GAME RANT

Oilers(3-1-1) are hosting the Jets(1-2-2) who have recently returned to the NHL, rising from the ashes of Atlanta like a Phoenix!  Which is where their previous team now resides…

Oilers have also trimmed the following from the roster:

Richard Bachman* (G) – Oklahoma City (AHL) aka Stephen King
Brad Hunt (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Jujhar Khaira (LW) – Everett (WHL)
Oscar Klefbom (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Martin Marincin (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Ryan Martindale (C) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Andrew Miller (C) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Ty Rimmer (G) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Sam Gagner (G) – IR (Thanks Kassian…)

OKC might do well this year as some of these names did fairly well in camp. 

Enough small talk, time for game talk.

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, the trade deadline came and went without too much action on the Oilers front, but a big trade was made today for us… Tom Gilbert to the Wild for defenseman Nick Schultz. The stats guys are criticizing this one. Looks like Schultz’s Corsi and such isn’t the hottest. To this I say, just watch the game. Much of what Schultz bring is what his supporters say are “intangibles”. The Wild players were upset to see him go, as was Michael Russo, beat writer for the Star Tribune. Sounds like this is a trade that could benefit both sides. Really, I just suggest everyone wait this one out before deciding. Corsi has made some bad D look brilliant, and some good D look not so brilliant. It doesn’t always tell the story, although I think stats can help at times.

Have your say on our poll on the sidebar.

Winnipeg Jets new jerseys

Here you are? What are your thoughts on them? Me, I don’t mind them. Not spectacular… but not bad. I think they will grow on people.

Winnipeg Jets Logo revealed

Winnipeg Jets logos.. click for a better image

The Winterpeg Jets have a new logo, shown above.

My take… hmm.. less than stunning. But I’d like to see it on a uni before I write it off.

EDIT:

THESE ARE NOT THE REAL JERSEY DESIGNS BELOW, RATHER CONCEPTS!


Added a couple of very rough jersey concepts. One based on a newly hack-jobbed logo based on G&S’ suggestion of combining the two main logos. Credit to Avi at hockeyjerseyconcepts.blogspot.com for the shirt design… I figured the Columbus Blue Jackets had a design that probably would work, and swiped this fellow’s concept… thus why Nash is captain of the Jets.. :P

Now with the new primary logo:

Now I know that my quick hack-job is nothing special, but I kinda wish they’d combine the two logos like G&S suggested, and maybe even add the team name like I’ve done above. I think it makes it look less plain. But that may just be me.

Scroll down through the comments for some jersey mock ups.. this is one I did that is my fave:
