by Edmonton Oilers Press Release / Edmonton Oilers
In response to the Arena Feasibility Report handed down a few hours ago, Edmonton Oilers President & CEO, Patrick LaForge, stated, “First of all, the Oilers are very pleased that the study committee has now tabled their report for all to see. There is no doubt a great deal of work and careful study went into the document. From the beginning the Oilers were keenly interested in knowing whether a downtown facility would make sense on all fronts. Our fans tell us every day they want to us to be competitive, and competitive in a facility comparable to other first rate buildings in our league – they deserve nothing less. The recommendation that this facility be the cornerstone of a larger development comes as good news for Oilers fans.”Kevin Lowe, Oilers General Manager, also sees the report as very positive news. “Frankly, I’ve been anxious to see what this report would contain and I’m pleased that they would recommend a new facility on this scale. I’m excited about our future, and our fans are as well, but there is no question that keeping world class players, and also securing those kinds of players, requires the best facilities and surrounding amenities, and I think that idea is pretty much fully covered in this report.”
