    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.

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

    http://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/564698

    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.
