I like it.  I thought part of the reason for choosing a name that starts with "E" was so that they could keep using the classic "EE" logo, but perhaps they can still incorporate it onto the jerseys.

The Edmonton Eskimos football team was originally named after the Edmonton Eskimos rugby team, who got the name on a trip to Calgary when a Calgary sports-writer called for the local side to "send these eskimos back to the tundra from whence they came!" sometime in the 1890s. The name stuck.

I read today that at some point the Edmonton Eskimos rugby team was later renamed the Edmonton Elks, so this seems fitting.

I'm guessing they kept the E so that they can cash in on vintage gear using the EE logo in the future and not have it completely outdated.

Makes sense. Why not?
