No one wants to play in edm besides people that grew up there, but there's a pretty loyal and big fanbase there. Moving would seem pretty retarded..

They're not moving anywhere, the team is just using it as a scare tactic to try to get a new arena in Edmonton, their current lease at the ancient Rexall place expires in 2014. They want the taxpayer portion to be larger for paying for the new arena.

You gotta admit it would be funny seeing the Oilers move then go on legacy run of Stanley Cups when their kids come to fruition.

The city should call the Oilers' bluff of moving. If I'm reading the article right the Oilers are contracted to 5.5M/yr to operate the arena, and they are asking taxpayers for an additional 6M to offset operational costs...wtf. They want the city to raise their committed 125M for the new arena to 300M+. The Oilers sell out $$ tickets regularly in Edmonton with lots in merchandising and concessions, let the owner take the risk of moving to a non-established non-traditional market and see how often they can sell out on $30-50 tickets. It's not like there's a shortage of financially burdened teams that wouldn't welcome a move to Edmonton should the Oilers leave.

I dont get it.

To me this seems like the translink situation in vancouver. if I was a Eskimos (assuming eskimos dont play inside Rexall) fan in Edmonton why the heck should I pay for a new hockey arena that i'll never get to sit inside of? It doesn't make sense. Why can't the ownership build an arena and lease it out to the city? Why must tax payers foot private profits? The only way I would be ok with building a new arena is if I as an Edmonton resident received some sort of concession on ticket prices for helping build the joint.

maybe i'm misunderstanding this whole thing.
