Sources close to the situation have indicated Las Vegas is a done deal, the only thing to be determined being which owner will be entitled to proclaim that he brought the first major league sports franchise to Sin City.

Luna says it's complete garbage based on the author.

I says it's awesome and I'd love for this to be true - road trip, baby!

sourcing Gallagher is like sourcing the National Enquirer

And now they're saying not only Vegas, but Seattle, Quebec City, and Toronto2 as well.

Vegas is a stupid idea. You think the NHL has trouble drawing fans to Coyotes games? Watch what happens if they put a team in a place where NHL hockey would rank #57 on the list of must-see things in the city. I love hockey as much as the next guy, but if I was in Vegas I sure wouldn't waste three hours in a hockey arena.

The other cities I'm fine with, but the NHL already has too many teams. With the current (stupid) format 32 teams makes sense, but it's still too many. 34 is just insane. Fine, add teams to Seattle and Quebec, but take out Florida, the Islanders, the BJs, and the Coyotes. 28 teams, 4 divisions of 7, top 4 make the playoffs.

Major difference between Arizona and Vegas is Vegas will have the tickets bought up by casinos as comps and will go un-used. Arizona will just have people continue not going.

You wouldn't go to a Flames game in Vegas? I sure would. And I'd be drunk off my ass the entire time (maybe go hug Hiller at the end or something too)

If I had a guess, in the next 3-4 years there will be two expansions (Vegas & Seattle) and Florida would move to Quebec City. Evens out the East & West.

Toronto/Buffalo/Detroit would all fight against a 2nd Toronto area team.

I would for sure go to a hockey game in Vegas. As long as I could bring my yard long margarita into the arena :P

I bet those 4 cities are on the preferred list and the ones the NHL is interested in taking bids from.

Seattle has huge arena issues. Vegas will have no home fan base and little TV or Merch revenue (this means more than the ticket sales). Quebec City lost their team so fuck them and I am down for T.O v2.0

You would probably be able to get another one while there... And bet on the outcome of the third period as well.

Multiple sources stating this will truly become a thing.

http://nypost.com/2014/11/12/nhl-picks- ... egas-team/

I want them to be named "Las Vegas Tigers"

for this:
