And the team?

Your Vancouver Tasers?

Your Vancouver Members?

Not sure I would like the red serge unis, however.
Well it would have to be "The Mounties"

Naww nevermind. A professional sports team would never consider such a ridiculous name.

Ahh that would be sensible. I hope it's not something like "Inukshuk Place".

Something simple please. But there's no way Aquilini doesn't get a payday with this considering how much of a deal GM Place got.

Thank you... The first time in this thread I've been scared of a name. If this happens, I blame you.

No that should be our team name. The BC Ferries. Think of the marketing opportunities!

Telus or Shaw make the most sense.

Telus was all over making sure they got the UBC arena rights. Bell has ramping up here when the deal was on tender, and Telus over paid to get it. Now they operate as the same company, and Telus is getting their ass handed to them lately with a poor revenue forecast. They need some good news.

Shaw is launching mobile wireless next year, and also need some higher exposure perhaps.

Interesting to see what this deal is worth.

No that was Gaglardi, the guy who was going to buy the team and ended up in a bitter lawsuit with Aquilini instead. Probably doubtful that he gets any naming rights

The "Ballard Energy Center" might help welcome our new defender, although I am really partial to the Taserdome.

Just heard Blake Price on Team 1040 mention that the domain name www.telusplace.com is owned by Canucks Sports & Entertainment.

Interesting...

Ya, Telus is definitely the best bet even before finding that URL registration info. I was just hoping we wouldn't get 'Google Arena' or something ridiculous. Telus Place I really don't mind; it's not the worst in the league anyways.

But given Telus's profile in this city, and since Telus is splashed all over the 300 level, I wouldn't be surprised.
Originally I said Telus Centre... but still, I win.

Although it's not something I'm happy about. **** Telus.

Yep. http://whois.domaintools.com/telusplace.com

Well that's kind of what i expected, but makes the announcement boring.

Either that or someone really felt like screwing with us. What is the record for generalmotorsplace.com?

Edit: Okay, generalmotorsplace.com has exact same info
