There should be quite a few Winnipeg fans at the Oilers home opener against the Jets this season.
October 1 vs. Winnipeg
This is the first time that Oilers fans will get a chance to see the upstart Winnipeg Jets first hand and there should be quite the Jets contingent in Rexall to support the visiting team.
While this may not be the most exciting game, it could lead to a potential geographical rivalry between the Oilers and the Jets.
November 13 vs. Dallas
This may not be the sexiest game, but Dallas and Edmonton have been bitter rivals for years, extending back to the early 2000s as the Stars almost routinely eliminated Edmonton from the playoffs year after year.
This game will be a must see if not just to see the reaction former captain Shawn Horcoff receives from the Edmonton crowd.
Horcoff was a loyal soldier for the team, but served as a whipping boy ever since signing his large contract following the 2006 season.
While he should receive a warm welcome, a chorus of boos may ring out.
November 16 vs. Calgary
It’s hard to believe that it will take nearly a month and half before the first Battle of Alberta, but by the time these two teams clash the season will be well underway.
The Flames have had the Oilers' number over the past few seasons, but now with Calgary rebuilding, the Oilers will look to reassert their dominance over their provincial rivals.
