The noise level when the Oilers went to the finals in 2006 was enough to permanently damage your hearing within minutes.

I understand that the Jets 1.0 and the Oilers dynasty had a rivalry, but this is a different Jets franchise, and that dynasty is long dead. The Edmonton bashing on this forum is absolutely ridiculous, especially considering that Winnipeg really is just a smaller version of Edmonton. The cities are almost identical.



$2-2.5 million/season at most. That's all he's earned thus far.
I've only been to one game in Edmonton, which is a pretty small sample size, but I thought I'd stumbled in to a church. Absolutely the deadest crowd I have ever seen. The Oilers won the game, I think 3 - 1. Whenever Edm scored, a handful of fans would jump up and cheer, then look embarrassed and quickly sit back down. It was several years ago. I'm glad to hear things have improved.
