Really? You must really need to take a dump because it looks nothing like that. Although, previous arena designs definitely did.

Other than that not sole-sourced bridge design. (Sorry, had to.)

I'm pretty conservative fiscally but I see the value in the AB gov't pitching in for a rink. The Saddledome is a dump with long lines. The seating bowl is like a morgue, and it has to be one of the worst stadiums in all major sports on this continent for amenities and entertainment around the rink. I'm pro a top tier rink, even if it has some public money in it.
Not a chance, if the AB government pays into the Edmonton rink and the Calgary rink they're throwing $300 mil at least out there when they're running a deficit.

Neither the Flames or Oilers are in any kind of trouble, they're owned by billionaires and they're paying millionaires. I think they can foot their own bills.

I'd much rather see the government throw that money into a new convention centre facility for Calgary than a new arena. We are falling behind much smaller cities in Canada for our space and ability to attract the major conferences/shows.

I really love this design. Kudo's to the Oilers and the city of Edmonton if they can get this thing built. This absolutely blows away the ACC and whatever Vancouver is calling there barn. The gauntlet is set Calgary - this is going to be tough to beat!

Is the community rink also going to be used for Oilers practices?

Is that the lighting they're going to use?

If the Saddledome does one thing right, it's lighting. I hate old arenas that light up the crowd as much as the ice.

This makes the arena look old.

Well, they completely forgot the benches in that picture.

What? Saddledome has some of the brightest all around lighting in the league.

If you want "dark" stands look at MSG, the United Center or Staples Center. The Saddledome is not one of them.

Oilers with too many men on the ice, no?

Very nice... now that Calgary knows what Edmonton is doing, they'll do it better.

Guaranteed on this.

Brightest lighting around the actual ice, yes.



The crowd isn't lit up at all comparable to that Oilers picture.

Compared to one on my most hated, HP Pavilion:
