lol I do like chops when properly cooked so I do find that design appealing in a way and the skywalk appears to be the new 'it' thing these days!

To me it fits that definition. Fortunately, I live outside of Canada, so you can't have me charged with thoughtcrime.

No thanks. Oracle already looks dated and reminds me of a giant Cineplex in the suburbs. The Portland arena couldn't be more plain and boring if it tried.

I disagree, its conservative design but Portland arena looks nice.

It's a nice arena, but there's nothing really interesting about it. Just a 90s-style generic arena, inside and out.

I think we've reached a point in arena designs where being generic needs to be considered lazy, unambitious and flat out bad. This is why I applaud anyone attempting to make their own mark ... even the currently under construction arena in Perth, Australia. Aesthetically, it looks quite unpleasing but at least they have broken free from the mold.

Besides going to see the Leafs last year, I haven't watched an NHL game in about 10 years so I'll take your word for it!

Actually my original point was about the early 60s version, about 40 yards away. The Rose Garden is pretty ugly, too. I like buildings with lots of glass, if they are done right.

It's a shame they've tooken so long with how much depth is in there prospect system and how talented there offense is. There defense is what kills them.

For me, the exterior has a New Street (a railway station here in the UK) look about it. The cladding for the railway station is stunning, and hopefully that's what they'll opt for in cladding this new arena:

This would immediately become the best looking arena in North America if realized. I doubt that the funding gap can be met though without radically changing the scope of the project.

I don't think any of the current LRT routes even stops in that part of downtown.

There are two stations, one to the east and one to the south, both about half a click away. Building a spur to link the arena directly might double the cost of the project, as the line is underground through there.

North LRT to NAIT is already under construction. The MacEwan station will be connected to the future arena.

Is this confirmed?

I remember hearing a few years ago about Bettman mulling relocating the Oilers if they didn't get a replacement for Rexall.

Except the situation is not exactly dire. It's one thing when he throws out the threat with the Islanders who draw flies and desperately need a building to be viable. It's another to do it with Oilers who are 6th in the league in game day revenue already. I know the building is old, but the the threat of viability is a lie. This is more a "want" masquerading as a "need" in the name of greed. Just the name of the game in pro sports.
