Thank you Gary!
I think Seattle would be good in the NHL. Better than Florida and Phoenix. It would lessen the travel for teams in the west also.

Northern Gateway Pipeline Arena or Keystone Pipeline Arena, whichever goes first (or at all).

Or Katz's Playhouse

Or West Edmonton Mall Downtown Arena

Rexall Place of Blue & Orange Black Gold

Why wouldn't Katz just get Rexall on it though? I'm guessing he's locked into an agreement at current Rexall Place for several years still. Otherwise "Rexall Arena" or even "New Rexall Place" don't seem too bad.
Because Katz owns Rexall, so he'd be passing up a revenue stream that likely totals around $3M a year. I'm sure he'll have Rexall plastered throughout the arena, so the name won't be crucial. Right now, it still works as good marketing for him since he doesn't own Rexall Place.

I'd be down for WestJet, but they're HQd in Calgary, wonder if they'd dare come here.

With the arena being this fancy, and Katz a decent businessman, would be cool to see a major international company (Barclays, O2 types) stake a claim here.

Will they put the benches and penalty boxes on the opposite sides of the arena to maintain the trademark?

This is not some random blogger. This is the biggest Edmonton proponent bar none. A guy that could run for City Hall on his basis of work and win on reputation.

jebus get out there a little if you haven't heard of this guy.

Go to C2E and ask how respected a source mastermaq is.
Maybe I have missed something? I have followed the Oilers and absorbed every drop of opinion, speculation, blogging and forum i can find. This is the first time I have ever seen this name appear.

On TV, the player benches are on the bottom half of the screen (the camera angle that is used most of the game). In the other 29 arenas, they're on the top half.

Thank you Gary!
Actually, it would be a blessing for the Oilers and everybody else in the west if Seattle got a team for a few reasons...

-less travel

-another fairly local rivalry

-the league could go ahead with realignment (if its an expansion team), which would be fantastic for the western teams, 3pt games would be minimized and you only have to be better than 4 teams to make the playoffs instead of 8, plus divisional playoffs which would create much better rivalries

Dean Bennett ‏@dlb51
Mason says despite gaming revenues off table, Redford could give $100M to Oilers/Edmonton by boosting MSI by that amount. #ableg #yegarena

Jonathan Willis ‏@JonathanWillis
Redford says if #yeg wants #100MM for #yegarena, they can take it out of MSI: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=652360

The missing $100M+ is going to be the biggest issue yet for the arena. I will bet the farm on that. Trouble ahead...

I'm all but certain that the City knows they are getting the money one way or another via the Province. The question is how it's going to be worded.

And also says they can take it out of the MSI. I don't see the last 100m being an issue.

New arena still not happening?

Ok, forgive me. I'm not trying to troll here or start fights.

But my parents are saying they heard on Global News EDM an hour so ago that the new arena still might not be happening.

They're saying they heard a city counselor saying that $100,000,000 are still missing and the province isn't going to pay it. Something like that.

Yes, my parents very well may have misunderstood and be complete retards. But I'm posting this here because I'm confused and I thought I'd inform everyone just in case. I have no citations... I'm looking for further information.

And yep, if I'm wrong, you have my permission to insult my parents.

Believe me.... I realize this might be complete BS.... I can't find any information on this anywhere. Not on Global EDM website, not on MSN, not on Oilers site... not here.

I'm hoping my parents are just on crack. I dunno WTF is going on.

100m is still not accounted for, which i can foresee being an issue going forward as well.

It's said the province is going to step in with the funds, but no such thing has been confirmed.

Also, please read: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1331127

Ok, silly me.

But then what's with all this celebrating over the approval of the new arena? I thought everything was finalized, but obviously it isn't.

The "missing" money will come out of the MSI funding. That means a neighborhood or two in SW Edmonton might not see a new rec centre for the next 10 years.
