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.
Fine then Roger's Forum

Unfortunately the company sponsored names are here to stay and after X amount of years, said company can try to renew or relinquish the deal, which means we'll see lots of name changes in a lifetime. Its a quick cash grab that we can't stop. You are right though, it would be nice to see something more creative than "Place, Arena, Centre."
