Either way, you're far too picky if you can't find something to your taste downtown. The majority of people will find their spot after a game.
So why don't they now in that case? Games go on near downtown, thousands of patrons of Oilers game go right by downtown on LRT headed for southside. Yet if you are on one of those trains you note virtually nobody getting off downtown post game.

Looks like maybe there isn't much appeal downtown.

Hell for a decent steak after an event at Rexall I'd have to go all the way to Bistecca at Century Park or just walk to Coliseum Steak and Pizza. Not sure where people got the notion I'm a picky eater at all. I just want a decent restaurant, not pub, to go to. Thats it.

People eat steak here in Alberta. They do actually.

One of the specific problems with downtown Edmonton is it doesn't cater to an Edmonton demographic. Corso32? lol. Meanwhile, the rest of Edmonton, who see very little reason to go downtown, end up spending their money closer to home in confines that more suit their tastes. Ironically, I recently went to a Cowboy Junkies concert in St Albert and found more appealing restaurants to go to in immediate vicinity downtown St Albert then in Edmonton. Not surprisingly people from St Albert are patrons of their downtown.
