There is no reason to have this argument, from either Jets or Oilers fan perspectives. I've seen playoff games in both arenas, and I've seen regular season games after long stretches of losing seasons in both arenas.
Both sets of crowds are amazing, dedicated, knowledgeable, hockey fans. Put the shoe on the other foot and you've have the same situation.Right now Edmonton is a little quiet - with a lot of excitement building - and Winnipeg is "off the hook".
Calgary on the other hand ...
