The rumor has been floating out there for awhile. Where there is smoke, there is fire. As the Rush were unable to secure a new arena lease. Another black eye for the NLL. As the defending champions move to the backwoods of Canada. Press conference to held in Saskatchewan on Tuesday July 21.

Is this a good move? Only time will tell. As the NLL moves to smaller markets. In an effort to cut the red ink. Got wonder if the shift in the business model. Will lead to long term success. As the jury is still out on Langley and New England.

The SaskTel Centre holds 15,100 for Hockey.

So after speaking with the Rush office. Given the same old song and dance. Got to think the Rush are gone. Hope we are wrong. However……they appear to be left in the dark. Same as the fans. Great way to treat employes and fans alike.

Rush on the ropes

As expected, NLL giving Edmonton plenty of time. To find a solution arena lease in Edmonton. I still believe team is good as gone. However, that is just what I expect the end result to be. NLL off season the fun is just starting.

More to come as it comes available.

Matthew scored the game winning goal at 13:58 of the fourth quarter. To secure the first ever champions cup for the Edmonton Rush.

Rush appear to have one foot out the door. How long before the moving vans are called? Sorry Rush fans. Looks like you need a white knight, to ride in.

The Rock jumped out to an early 2-0 lead. On goals by Kasey Beirnes and Brock Sorensen. The Rush came awake soon after that. Scoring the next six goals. Before the Rock answered. The hole was too deep. As the Rush defense went to work. To stife the Rock offense.

Game two of the NLL Champions Cup final goes Friday June 5 in Edmonton at 9:30 EST.

NLL Statement on Edmonton Rush

National Lacrosse League Commissioner George Daniel has issued a statement following the Edmonton Journal article regarding the Edmonton Rush that was published on Wednesday, May 20.

“The NLL strongly believes in the Edmonton market,” Daniel said. “The NLL can prosper in Edmonton under the right business conditions. It is our understanding that the current facility lease for the Rush expires at the end of the season. It is our hope that Bruce Urban can secure the necessary arrangements to make that happen to ensure the long-term viability of the NLL in Edmonton.”

Another NLL team done in by a bad lease? We shall see. Statement is nothing more than damage control, on the league’s part. There is more to come. Get the popcorn ready.
