Also, I like the thought of the Oil Kings playing at Rexall as opposed to sharing the new arena w/ the Oilers. The Vancouver Giants get the old Coliseum, making it their true home and IMO to looks weird watching the Hitmen play in an arena with another teams logo slapped on centre ice all season long.
You must have missed the criticisms surrounding Edmonton's support of the Oil Kings during the WHL final. Portland packed their building every game and were loud as heck whereas Edmonton failed to sell 8000 tickets for Game 6 at Rexall, and the building sounded like a morgue all series.

I'm over it, and the criticisms were a tad hyperbolic but the Shaw broadcasters wouldn't let us hear the end of it. The folks on Edmonton radio and even the players (on Twitter) got into the act. They were practically begging fans to show up and get loud.

Anyway, off-topic...
