There are 70 days of waiting left until the Oilers kick off the season in their shiny new building. In a perfect world, Chiarelli will spend the remainder of the off season upgrading some bottom six forward depth, and more importantly, a top pairing defenceman.

Unfortunately, there aren't many worthwhile free agents left available, or even players available for trade, which makes it extremely difficult for Chia to get anything done before the season starts. With that said, I feel like it's an appropriate time to start talking about our expectations for the 2016-17 season.

Speaking of... The Best and Worst NHL Jerseys

A heated debate erupted at Nation HQ yesterday afternoon when Baggedmilk commented on how bad the Nashville Predators home jersey looked. I disagreed (I think he's crazy), and, personally, really like the gold/navy/yellow combination. Anyways, this turned into a long-winded conversation about how bad some jerseys in the NHL currently look, and how bad some have looked in the past. 

Now, I want to turn the debate over to you fine citizens. Through the power of this beautiful poll, I am curious about what the Nation feels is the best and worst looking jersey in the NHL.
