**This footage of game 6 vs. the Jets in 1990. Oiler fans might want to fast forward to the 9:30 mark.***
The Winnipeg Jets haven't played in Edmonton since March 29th, 1996 when Miroslav Satan had a pair of goals in a 3-2 Oilers victory while Nikolai Khabibulin was in goal for the Jets, and Ryan Smyth was in his rookie season.
However, according to my source, that 17-year drought will end October 1st when the Jets return to Rexall Place for opening night against the Edmonton Oilers.

As the summer days stretch out and the warmth of the sun, holidays and lack of hockey news begins to impact our ability to keep track of the day-to-day, it's important to remember there are holes in the Oilers and available free agents. Those free agents are currently weighing job opportunities with salary demands, and another two weeks of unemployment will probably mean these players are finding new homes for 2013-14. One player of interest to the Oilers may be Daniel Cleary.
