    NHL Expansion (team in Vegas a "done deal")

    Post by wprager on Tue Aug 26, 2014 10:31 pm

    It's all over twitter. Sportsnet (and others) are reporting that the NHL expansion to Las Vegas is a "done deal".

    Thoughts? How about some potential names:

    The Bookies
    The Odds
    The Gamblers (too obvious)

    So 31 teams?

    Let's just get to 32 teams and be done with it so we can have a proper balance between conferences. Jeezus Diddle.

    Stop the madness.

    Interesting news. Their population is somewhere around 600,000, but with tourists and the surrounding area, I doubt they have trouble selling tickets...for a while anyway.

    This is Cussing stupid if true. Where are you getting 90+ more players?

    At least this means we can get rid of some duds.

    Adding 4 teams seems crazy.

    We go from barely any NHL expansion talk, with the NHL denying any plans consistently, to plans for 4 teams by 2017.

    Feast or famine for the NHL.

    Expansion is natural, but it goes without saying the existing struggling teams should be relocated first.
