A 42-year old franchise based out of Canada, the Edmonton Oilers have won 5 Stanley Cups (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1990) during their “Dynasty” era in the 80’s. The Oilers have also won seven conference championships, nine division championships and two President’s trophies. The five Oilers championship rings were all within a ten-year period when they were a young team.
When the Oilers were only 11 years old in 1984, they won 57 games with the help of superstars like Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurry and Glenn Anderson. They swept the Jets and defeated the Flames and the North Stars in the playoffs before beating the Islanders for their first Stanley Cup Championship. They came back the following year in 1985 and beat the Kings, the Jets and the Blackhawks in the playoffs before taking the Stanley Cup from the Flyers for their second straight title.
They sat out a year then returned to the Finals for another two-peat, defeating the Flyers in 1987 and the Bruins in 1988. During game four of the 1988 finals, the power went out at Boston Garden during a tied game at 3-3, forcing the cancellation of the entire game. The Oilers ctually swept the Bruins in five games ending in Edmonton instead of Boston due to the canceled game.
They would also add one more Stanley Cup ring after they lost Gretzky (traded in 1988). In 1990, Edmonton bested Boston in five games to bring home their fifth NHL title.
There has been an absolute abundance of replicas of the Oilers Stanley rings selling on eBay. They have sold for as little as $2.76 all the way up to $185. A 1984 ring features a single prong set cubic zirconia on top surrounded by bright blue enamel. It is crafted of jewelers alloy and plated in 18K gold and is offered in multiple sizes.
Other replicas of the Oilers championship rings are made of alloy and feature multiple handset as well as glued CZ’s. The 1988 replica weighs about 75 grams.
