The Edmonton Oilers are a NHL team that was founded in 1972 as the Alberta Oilers. They
were moved to Edmonton in 1973 and joined the NHL in 1979. The team competes in the
Western Conference of the league and is in the northwest division. Over the course of their
history, the team has been extremely successful. Edmonton Oilers tickets holders have seen
their team claim nine division titles, two Presidents' trophies, seven conference
championships, and five Stanley Cup titles. The most recent Stanley Cup success came in
1989-90. Their most recent Conference success was in 2005-2006. The Edmonton Oilers
tickets holders will be hoping that past successes can be repeated in the coming seasons.
There have been some terrifically talented players that Edmonton Oilers tickets holders have
had the pleasure of seeing in their team's jersey. The likes of Al Hamilton, Paul Coffey, Glenn
Anderson, Mark Messier, and Grant Fuhr were all legends of their era and played a huge role
in the history of the Edmonton Oilers.
The past five seasons have been very difficult for the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton
Oilers tickets holders. They have not made the playoffs for a while and actually endured
losing seasons in 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12. There will have to be major changes if the
team is to reclaim its rightful place at the top table of the NHL. This might be possible with
the draft, as Edmonton Oilers tickets buyers will get to see No.1 draft pick Nail Yakupov in
the coming season. Defensive prospect Justin Schultz will also be with the Oilers in 2012-
In 1974, the Edmonton Oilers moved to the Rexall Place arena and have been playing their
home games there ever since. The arena can hold 16,839 fans and most times the Edmonton
Oilers tickets are sold out for these games. The great thing about the Edmonton Oilers is
that fans will always come back for more. Their passionate supporter base ensures that
almost all home games are sold out. In fact, for playoff games, it is almost impossible to get
Edmonton Oilers tickets. That is how high demand can be.
Fans of the Edmonton Oilers have been spoiled over the past 30-40 years. They have seen
some sublime hockey being played. They have had the chance to see players such as Wayne
Gretzky playing his trade for the Oilers. That is why there are so many seasonal Edmonton
Oilers tickets holders. The fans have been on a steady diet of success and they hope that it
will continue in the future. The past five seasons have been hard for them, as being in the
playoffs used to be a given for a team of their stature. The coaching staff will have to make
big improvements and the players will have to buck up their ideas as well.
The important thing is that fans are not staying away. They have been supporting their team
with the same pride and noise as they have always done. Games are still sell outs and
Edmonton Oilers tickets are just as much in demand now as they were five or ten years ago.
