"On Tuesday, when members of the feasibility committee met with the Edmonton Journal's editorial board, there were already dark hints that without a new arena, the Oilers could leave town when their current lease expires."
— Paula Simons, The Edmonton Journal
That makes it the second time in four years that the Edmonton Oilers and their minions have threatened to leave town if they didn't get what they want. The first time was during the "cost certainty" PR campaign during the lockout, and now it's in regards to a new arena within six years. Who could have guessed it.
As well, last night's game against Minnesota hurt. It hurt real bad.
