After all was said and done, that didn't turn out as bad as many of us thought it would.
Despite icing a lineup that - save for one forward line and one defensive pair - was laced with AHL level talent at best, and facing an Oilers lineup that was 75% of their expected NHL roster the Jets did relatively well.

The quick pace of the NHL preseason is in full effect tonight as the Winnipeg Jets - fresh off last night's OT loss to the Minnesota Wild - are in Edmonton to take on the perennially young and rebuilding Oilers.
The Oilers have managed to get out to a fine 2 and 0 start to the preseason after a couple of wins on Monday night in split squad games against the Calgary Flames so of course Oilers fans are planning the parade already.
Let's take a look at the rosters for tonight's game...

It wasn't the most enjoyable hockey we've seen ever. In fact, it was a snoozefest that rivaled the pace and intensity of an All-Star Game that sadly didn't feature all-stars.
We should have expected it really if we had just done some simple math: First preseason game + Minnesota Wild clogging style of play = Zzzzzzzzzz.
But boy-oh-boy that 3 on 3 overtime sure made up for it didn't it? Granted the Jets ended up losing in that OT on a goal from Matt Dumba, but being that it's simply exhibition hockey we can overlook that little fact right?
