I don't think it creates any kind of real link to Northlands, Coliseum is more identifiable with the franchise than the former Oiler's partner.

Arena/Place/Center(already can't remember which is Edmonton's without googling it) is purely generic with absolutely nothing memorable about it, an unimaginative corporate name at best. Roger's Coliseum -whether paying homage to Northlands Coliseum or the later Edmonton Coliseum- has far more relation to the city and franchise's history.

It's just wishful thinking though, they aren't changing it at this point.
