OPTIONS OPEN: The CP’s Dean Bennett noted this is “not the first time Katz and the Oilers have had talks with other potential suitors.” Team officials have “been in Hamilton before and there were even talks at one time to relocate the arena to First Nations territory outside Edmonton” (CP, 9/24). In Edmonton, Terry Jones writes the idea of Katz moving the Oilers to Seattle is “ludicrous.” Jones: “He's not a stupid man. He'd be paying rent there. He wouldn't have concession rights, pouring rights, building naming rights. Hockey would be the No. 4 or No. 5 entity on the local sports scene” (EDMONTON SUN, 9/25).
