Anything is better than National Car Rental Center.

It's just too bad the name is finally changing. I got used to GM Place. I didnt even connect it with the car company anymore in my mind.

Hopefully they do keep the word "Place" in there.

Nice to know the Canucks had the cash to spring for a 99 cent domain name.

I am going to go register all the typos from telusplace.com like teluspalce.com and make millions off the mis-hits!

BTW - they already call the Verizon Center in DC the Phone Booth.

I didn't even bother checking the other domains to see if they worked. Telus Arena doesn't work, so I guess its one of the two.

Telus corporate colours match the ones of Canucks perfectly, though.

General Motors Place getting new name. Source says Telus will not be new naming rights holder. #canucks

Bob Mackin from 24 Hours

Thing with domain registration is anyone can register just to screw with people. Not really sure what's the point. And they are likely just placeholders for whatever the potential name could be.

Well that's kind of what i expected, but makes the announcement boring.
Well, it might not be this for sure.

Im sure the Canucks made proposals to Telus and other companies on options. They have to sell the naming rights, so they would have registered URL's in anticipation of any deals.

Could still be something not as obvious as Telus.

They'll probably block all non Telus cell phone signals.

aw I was hoping for the "Hey Bieksa don't let the door hit you on the a** on the way out Centre"

can we start calling the penalty box "The Cell" now?

I wonder if any big tech companies like Microsoft might come into play; I know they just opened a huge corporate headquarters in Richmond.

Hey, if Canucks.com starts posting stuff Telus doesn't approve of, will it just sensor the domain name, like they did to the TWU?

I love it when the Canucks jump in bed with sleaze bags!
