The Jacket: Who Will Wear It Tonight?


Nice to see the Oilers get a sense of humour. I swear to god if Raffi Torres ever wins the jacket, the asshole factor will blow through the roof with that frathawk haircut and
porn landing strip on the end of his chin.

Yeah, that's pretty, alright. That Paul Coffey was a fashion maven.

Got a kick out of the Flames meatheads in the comments section under the story who all apparently think theirs was the only team in history to make its players wear goofy bullshit for the press after a good game. At least this jacket has history.

Anyhow, feeling good about tonight. 4-2 Oilers, goals from Raffi, Smyth, Sykora and Greene (!).

chris!

That jacket is hilarious! I love that Roli is the current owner. I wish there were pictures.

Nice picture of Smytty.

So, what does this jacket look like that they hand out?

I swear, I have a picture of myself wearing nearly the exact same jacket in a store in China from about 6 years ago. I gotta find that somewhere, I think i'm making the exact same expression as Smyth there.

Is it wrong for me to think that the ugly coat is insanely hot on Smyth? The fur makes his hair seem like the least of his worries.

Seriously, I'd hit it.

Roli? In THAT jacket?!?

This I have got to see.

the way flames fans go on, it seems the flames invented hockey and everything about it.

So it really was an old coat of Coffey's?

I think Torres would rock this coat right...he'd come with corresponding shades and the whole deal. Personally I'd like to see Hemsky wear this thing. He's so timid and understated that him wearing the jacket would crack me up.

And it would also please me if saying he was wearing this coat to the Shark Tank in May;)

I agree with Jordi. I have no idea how or why but yes, the coat on Smytty os totally (if oddly) hot.

To add to the coat story, from a comment on the TSN article:

"The jacket was origionally owned by Oiler great Paul Coffey in the early 80's. After the Oilers eliminated the Flames in the '84 Smythe finals, when the Flames had come back from a 3-1 deficit to force a game 7, Messier jokingly grabbed it while he acted like he was King of the Oilers, attempting to motivate the team not to get in that predicament again. After the Oilers swept the Stars in the Conference finals, Coffey "awarded" the coat to Messier. It hung around the locker for several years, more as a joke than anything, but eventually got shuffled into storage. Kevin Lowe remember the jacket this summer, and suggested to MacTavish to use it this season. And that is the rest of the story..."

Althought most of you already knew this.
