Garon's Pads A Prequel To Alternate?

I got lots of emails tonight about this so it must be worth posting. The Edmonton Journal is reporting that Mathieu Garon has a new set of pads designed to match the Edmonton Oilers' new vintage third jersey.

Apparently he's been breaking them in at practice.

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mathieu Garon trotted out a stiff new pair of blue and orange goalie pads during a long practice at Millennium Place on Thursday morning.

Garon is the advance man for the Oilers' turn-back-the-clock third NHL jersey, which will likely be unveiled at their season and home opener Oct. 12.

Garon will be dressed from head to toe in blue and orange, apparently, because he's also getting a new painted goalie mask for the salute to the Oilers teams of the '80s.

The team's retro jersey likely will be unveiled next Tuesday on the Oilers website.

It would've been nice if they had offered pictures, but sometimes we don't have that kind of luck. If anything surfaces, you'll see it right here.

Any other accent colors on them? What shade of blue and orange?

These things are important to those of us trying to guess!

I don't know how much of a spoiler this is because we all knew that the Oilers were gonna go to this color scheme for their alternate, and it's to be revealed before the season begins. But I think it's a cool idea for Garon to do this.

Maybe he's dead... It's not like to him to just not post. He usually writes a post apoligizing for not getting to write a real post.

Maybe Chris is having a busy weekend working on Part 6 of the season preview. Did you all think about that?

I did think about that, but then I thought about how he usually gives us a reason about why he isn't posting anything. Plus the last time he left us with nothing was when a tropical storm was passing through Florida. (Sometime in mid August)
