Turns out it may be more than one-and-done for the Edmonton Rush following their playoff ousting.

Maybe a lot more. For Edmonton, at least.

Rumours — whose roots extend from the minor lacrosse level that the professional club is getting more and more involved in with each passing year — were swirling around Rexall Place Tuesday as the team held its final press conference following their semifinal playoff loss in Washington.

And they had to do with the Rush's future in Edmonton.

Or not, as it were.

“I don't think anyone should ever question Bruce Urban's commitment to the game of lacrosse or the city of Edmonton,” club president Dave Jamieson said of owner Bruce Urban. “Let the record show, he has lost a lot of money, he's spent a lot of time, he may even have grey hairs that have come from this experience, because he has put a lot of himself into it.

“He really, passionately wants this team to do well and win here.”
