There have only been two Heritage Classics. Both were broadcast on CBC, and featured two Canadian teams.
You know CBC would prefer two Canadian teams again - they get much better ratings for all-Canadian matchups. If NBC was involved they would likely want two American teams - the Jets are not a big draw in the US market.
Thus, I think I can almost guarantee that a Heritage Classic would involve two Canadian teams. It's not just what the Jets would want, but rather what their broadcast partners would want.
Since Calgary, Edmonton and Montreal (twice!) have had outdoor games, and the Leafs will have one next year, and CBC seems to relegate Winnipeg-Ottawa games to less than peak times, I think the likely matchup is:
Canucks - Jets.
