NHL Expansion to Vegas - Official


Recommended Posts

Hahaha.  Got to love this quote.

Bill Foley coy on Las Vegas’ team nickname, unworried by Raiders’ intentions

Quote

Foley was asked if he had a problem with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders possibly moving to Las Vegas and what impact it would have on his franchise.

“I’m not going to be politically correct here,” he said. “But I believe if you’re going to spend $750 million of the public’s money, it should be on policemen, firefighters and teachers.

What do you mean I can't control the puck?  It's made of rubber?  WTF. Yeah, I get nothing too.  

if they are requiring Knight in the name i think it's pretty clear what direction they have to go: the mutha f*cking Las Vegas Knight Riders

I think the Spearmint gets involved and we see the Las Vegas Rhinos.

Rumblings: Las Vegas will get a head start on free agency

Newest wrinkle.  Vegas gets a 2 week head start on FA'cy.  If a team has an UFA, or RFA, Vegas can negotiate with them as long as they are not on the protected list.  If Vegas signs the UFA/RFA, then that counts as that teams pick by Vegas. 

In the Ducks case, it would be sweet if Vegas signs UFA Bernier.  In the Kings case, Toffoli and Pearson stand out as RFA's.  But I'm sure they would be protected.

yeah, no way they let toffoli walk away. pretty sure they'd want to keep pearson, too. two good young players to build around.

The story circulated for years that the NHL wanted to play one of their outdoor games here on or near the Strip.

The year that they did this, there was also an outdoor game to be played in North Carolina, also between the Kings and Rangers. It was cancelled due to poor ice, but ticket sales were incredible. This propelled NC to get their expansion team.

I wonder if the league was putting out feelers back then for the Vegas expansion as well? Tickets sold well, and the ice held up, so it was a success.
