Hearing NHL "expansion" plan, if there is one, might be 2 new franchises, 2 relocated from East to West. 32 teams with 16/16 split.

32 always made more sense to me from a Division/Playoff Format point of view.  And they can still get a relocation fee.  In the case of the Arizona club, the NHL own it, so all the fees (sale/relocation/whatever) are like a new franchise fee.
from the east to the west? ya maybe florida but who else?

Detroit? Sarcasm

Why Vegas? Is there a market it for it there? Seems like it takes the spot of a more viable option, but I guess they know what they're doing.

They'll be called for hooking/interference a lot (one hand on the stick).

Sp, Dan Patrick is now reporting that the NHL *will* have a team in Vegas in 2016. Ground already broken for a new arena.

Of course it could also be relocation (Coyotes) and not expansion.

The NHL recognizes that gambling has made a juggernaut out of the NFL. Establishing a presence in Vegas will help them catch up to the NFL. Or so they hope.

What's the name of that Vegas NFL franchise again? Keeps slipping my mind.
