Above: Jordin Tootoo and Vernon Fiddler
Vernon Fiddler and Rich Peverly always seem to play well against Edmonton. As I mentioned in a post a long time ago, the Nashville Predators have a lot of local players playing on their team. Scott Nichol, Fiddler, and Nick Tarnasky are all born and raised in Alberta. Jordin Tootoo is famous for being the first Inuit player to be drafted into the NHL.
The Oilers probably have more:
but MacT called out his team after the last game for not having enough "grit" or "pluck." All these local players seem to have a lot of pluck. Kyle Brodziak is one who ended up on the Oilers. It will be interesting to see how the Edmonton Oilers react against the plucky Predators Edmontonians.
Conclusion: Oilers unleash the inner beast and send the Predators packing in their home town
