Fair point - I say they'd be at the new arena because I personally don't truly believe the existing Rexall Place will exist past 2016, no matter what Northlands currently says.

Actually, if I was a betting person, Katz will buy the Rush before the new arena opens like the Flames purchased the Roughnecks in Calgary... because if he doesn't, your second point will be correct, they won't remain here at all.

Carry on. Obviously, my opinion is the minority. Guess I'll need to start looking at other options.
I'm not sure of your financial position, so if you are personally struggling please don't think I'm trying to put you down, because I'm not. I'm simply pointing out Rexall Place is filled on a regular basis, and I suspect most of those people are average people income people like myself and not rich folk. Edmonton is not Toronto where everyone goes to the game wearing a suit.
