Absolutely.

Is it true that some non-Oiler NHL players still come back to Edmonton during the off season and may have houses here?

Sure.

What does it matter that Chara trains for a month here? Did he buy a house here? I'm guessing that Chara renting for a month here doesn't mean he's investing any significant amount of money into the city.

In order to get any clarity in the issue - do we know which NHL players actually own a house in Edmonton and its environs?
So why is the opposite true then? Why can we assume that Gagner is taking all his moeny and not spending it here? Or Souray never spent any money in Alberta?

And where exactly is the money Jbo, Boychuck, Langkow, Chimera, etc... going? It can't be STL, Boston or Washington right?
