Btw, anyone else think Daryl Katz looks like Andy Dick??
I hate the Canucks so much they're my second favorite team.

How 'bout we take the Oilers and Seattle can have the Canucks? One more top 5 draft pick and we'll have a dynasty! :frantic:

I don't want the Oilers. The Canucks may lose, but they're our losers.

There's no doubt he could make way more money in Seattle than in Edmonton.

Katz was born and raised in Edmonton though, there's no way he would take the Oilers away from Edmonton.

He's likely getting advice from the group in Seattle about how to deal with city officials.

Why the hell will he go to Edmonton to do that? Vancouver is the place to be for b.s like that. How do you think we scored the olympics. The government and city was all in for it. However if the city is not ok with an arena, then it's going to be real hard.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.


1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares



combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

Oilers with a new arena are worth more than without one. Minimizing the amount of money Katz puts into the arena deal maximizes the amount of money he can make if and when he sells the team. This is just a pure business strat. that he is using.

However, if you think that he is bluffing, Edmonton fans should just say no. Then they can join the list that includes Sonics fans and Browns fans. Edmonton fans need to wake up and realize that their beloved Oil-slicks won't say in Rexal forever.

Put up or shut up. It's that simple.
