I am really happy that the Oil Knigs are coming back because I never seen them play and it is cool to have a junoir team in Edmonton. Now that we have a junoir hockey team I can find who will be great prospects and good draft pick.

Oilers Rule!!!

I think it will give a cheaper alternative to the Oilers. Let's face it, the majority of people are not in the tax bracket to be able to afford an Oiler Game. Decent tickets are $80 at least. Then, it's $15 for a slice of BP's and a pop. Then, a couple of beers is another $15. So, you are up to $110 per person. A couple if $220 and a family of 4 around $400, more if it's a Friday or Saturday game and you tie one on. For the price of 3-20 oz drafts you can buy a dozen beer and sit on the couch infront of the big screen at home.

I know I am not in the position to spend $200+ on 2 1/2 hours of entertainment.

Now, the Oil Kings are here. The concession stuff will be as expensive, but the tickets are being advertised at $22/game for gold season tickets. Now that is affordable.

I think it will be good!

For hockey loving cities, it's fantastic.
I'm sure they will be a success in Edmonton.

The Giants in Vancouver has drawn fantastic crowds and have their own following based a large part on your observations (ticket price, ..). Some people are also drawn to the game where some of the kids are playing for a chance to make the show, and other know they wont, but they all just want to win.

Good entertainment. Good value.

I would have thought that this vote would have been a slam dunk. I'm really curious about the person who voted 'No', why they voted that way, and why they didnt back it up with a post.

Heck, I don't even live in the same country. Who are the Oil Kings? (Obviously from the name I knew they had to be from Edmonton though). I don't really follow the CHL nor do I get coverage, but I voted yes because, well, the more hockey teams the better!

I'm happy, being a reisdent of Edmonton.
Finally I can afford to go to a hockey game and not have to sit in the nosebleeds.

But why is everything around Edmonton named after oil?
I mean I get the big industry but isn't "Kings" enough? Or Fort McMurray? Couldn't they just be called the "Barons"? Even the rec league teams are called oil kings.

I've wondered that too...is there anything else associated with Edmonton other than oil? I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, I'm just wondering...

Does this mean the Oilers have a farm team now? As far as I know, they don't have one yet, right?

Go Sens
Crosby is God
Tucker is a douche
