My guess is, that Northlands and the city are still trying to work the deal to build the arena out near Northlands and have Northlands own and run it and Edmonton pay rent.
For me Northlands is a Dinosaur that has not kept up with modern times
Eh? Not sure where this comes from the city has agreed on a and spent lots of time and money on the downton arena and have essentially tried to cut Northlands out of the whole deal.
Northlands may be a dinosaur as far as glitzy hockey rinks goes but in the grand scheme of building age it is not at all old for a large building/infrastructure.
