It all began at the back of the Shamrock Fruit Store in 1903. Amid apple crates and potato sacks, three enterprising newsmen produced the first edition of the Edmonton Journal on November 11, 1903. Their mission was simple: to provide relevant and reliable news and information to the Edmonton community.

    Gretzky is an Icon, the Love of Edmonton, it should move with the Team. Our spirit goes with them, The Great One should go too!

    Just put it in Mr. Katz garage and he can move it wherever he wishes, when he wishes.

    Who KNOWS the Oilers are leaving Edmonton???? The statue is honoring Gretzky, NOT the oilers, so move it anywhere and nothing changes. A great new facility, graced by a sports legend is fine by me!!>

    option C "It's a statue, and we are wasting precious mental energy worrying about a lump of steel - put it wherever you want, I couldn't care less."

    So when the oilers move to Seattle should the statue go there also?

  • Darren - 3 years ago

    It should follow the Oilers

    Mixed feelings...he played at the old building but I think it would be forgotten there. So it should be where "his team" plays.
    It will be more visible downtown.

    It should go with the team downtown.
