When the Jacket makes the man.

What is going on in Edmonton and why is Ryan Smyth wearing that Jacket? Well in 2003-2004 the players on the Calgary Flames awarded each other a Green hard hat to signify which of them was considered the games top performer in a win. That hat landed in Toronto's Hockey hall of Fame. Now that the "Green Hat" is immortalized, they continued the practice in 2005-2006 with the Golden Hard hat. This year it is a "red tacky tie" that is the trophy of choice. Not to be undone by its Alberta rival, Edmonton Oilers have the "jacket". The eighties style jacket is awarded to the Oilers top performer. So which trophy will have the greater motivational factor? I personally like the Jacket. Who wouldn't fight hard to possess that? The fur collar will be great during the long Canadian winter.
