Sorta official-ish kinda.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Bettman said there was an update on expansion to the Board today. Says there is no formal process yet started, no vote taken today. But...

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Bettman says the interest the league is getting from Las Vegas has generated discussion...

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Bettman says potential Vegas owner Bill Foley has been given the green light to generate season-ticket drive to see what interest there is


Given the cheapness of flights & accommodation, I could seriously see myself going to at least one game every other year.

We pretty much go to Vegas once a year lately - so I could definitely see it being a Flames centered vacation.

And the hotels would buy up the luxury suites for comps so getting the ticket sales might not be a problem. Getting butts in seats would be the more difficult thing, I think.

Just checking other boards on this.

Talk on Seattle and Portland being possible places for expansion in the future. Another realignment of divisions with Edmonton and Calgary moving away from the Pacific.



Seattle Storm!

Quote:
LAS VEGAS — The time has come. The NHL is ready to expand beyond 30 teams.

Barring something unforeseen, commissioner Gary Bettman will emerge from today’s board of governors meeting at the Bellagio Hotel and announce that the league is opening a formal expansion process, according to several sources.


According to Elliotte Friedman, press conference set for 2 PM Vegas time.

They should "expand" out of Glendale while they're at it.

From Bettman's press conference:

- expansion interest from Quebec City, Seattle & Las Vegas (maybe interest in Toronto2)
- expansion fee would be $500 million
- applications in by July, executive would review them
- earliest possible start for an expansion team is 2017/18
- the Coyotes are going to play in Glendale (nothing new here)

If I had to guess, I'd say we see expansion to four cities: Vegas (Aces), Seattle (Pilots), Quebec City (Nordiques) & Markham (Shamrocks).

I'd also guess the Coyotes will move to either Kansas City (Scouts 2.0) or Houston (Aeros?).

So Quebec City and Las Vegas have submitted expansion applications.
