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.

Thanks for the clarification. Could be you're right but I don't think Bruce Urban, and the Edmonton Rush are really Katz cup of tea. Again it would be a subpar low marketable product with low ticket prices occupying some dates that are likely better filled.

Can't really see it happening. Thats not at all a big money product in terms of tickets, merchandise sold or concessions. Plus that to have an over 18K rink housing 7K attendance lacrosse seems like a misfit.
