More About Vintage Edmonton Oilers Jerseys
It is kind of strange using the word vintage to describe the Edmonton Oilers. However, as little as I like to admit it, considering they weren’t around when I was a kid, the Oilers have actually been kicking around for quite a few years now. First they toiled in the WHA, and when that rival league was merged into the NHL they joined, and almost immediately became one of the best teams in the league.
Of course, the main reason they had so much early success in the NHL was the quality of the players on their roster. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier both made the jump and guys like Kurri, Coffey, Anderson and Fuhr followed soon after. The Oilers wasted little time becoming one of the greatest dynasties the game had ever seen. They reached their first Stanley Cup Final in 1983, just their 4th season of NHL existence, and won their first Stanley Cup the following year. Led by Wayne Gretzky, the greatest player in NHL history, the Oilers reeled off 4 Stanley Cups in 5 years. However, the team had plenty of firepower besides #99 and after the fateful 1988 trade that sent Gretzky to the sunny south to ply his trade with the Los Angeles Kings the Oilers won one more cup for good measure, beating the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years to capture the 1990 Stanley Cup.
Though they had a great run in 2006, making it all the way to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Edmonton Oilers, for the most part, have been toiling through a low point in their history. In the 2009-10 season they finished dead last in the entire NHL. The silver lining of that horrible season was the #1 overall draft pick they got as a result. With it they selected Taylor Hall, and he, along with young stars like Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi and Sam Gagner should ensure that the Oilers will once again rise to prominence and thrill fans just like they did during their heyday in the 1980s.
