Never gonna happen but a fun concept to imagine
Haha Pretty much what I was thinking. Its like the useless Gold camo for guns in Cod.

It does absolutely nothing for you, but when someone watches the kill cam where you decimate them, they know for sure they just got pwned by a pro.

Instead of cutting a few of the struggling teams that have shown they aren't hockey markets, lets expand the league, and make Las Vegas one of the new cities. And lets continue to demand the players be the ones to have to make salary sacrifices rather than the league show some financial responsibility at the next CBA because that makes more sense :sarcasm

Ads are coming. I'm sure of it but I don't understand why they have to slap them on there like afterthoughts. Look at soccer jerseys. They're almost designed around the sponsor and they look great.

Las Vegas might do a lot better than the other weaker markets.

Just think how many Canadians fly there during winter?

Stag trips. Corporate events.

I would love to fly down there. Watch a game. Go gamble. Strip clubs. And drink throughout the night.

soo more rumblings about expansion..
Report: Toronto, Seattle, Quebec City to join Vegas in 2017 NHL expansion - NHL - SI.com
this site mentions gallaghers article, but changed kansas city to toronto for some reason. kansas city seems like a weird decision, yet there would be many problems with another team in toronto.

people in vegas dont think they can support an nhl team, even with tourists. they would prefer a cheaper option like the mls, which could be popular with the mexican population.
Is it finally Las Vegas? time to get a major pro sports team? - Las Vegas Sun News
yet, as mgm is building the arena, id think they have no problem paying for a team, then filling the arena with events on the side. + possibly a basketball team in the future.

if the league goes to 34 teams, playoffs would more than likely have to be restructured, as youd have another 4 teams missing the playoffs. with too many teams missing, theres going to be problems with revenue.

For sure the NHL will expand to 32 teams (2 expansion teams). I'm guessing Vegas and Quebec City.

I think 4 expansion teams would be pushing it

What would you prefer? Jersey with corporate sponsorship or a New Orleans Pelican jersey?

soccer jerseys aren't bad...but that's probably because they've always been that way for as far as i can remember

euro hockey jerseys just overdo it with the ads

i'm actually surprised we haven't seen any ads creep into jerseys in the NHL yet (like the practice jerseys type of ads)

Aw yeah, that's good news for Seattle and the Canucks! We have a northwest rival now. -good chance that tickets to watch the Seattle hockey games would be cheaper than Canucks tickets.


-another reason to go to Seattle besides the Seahawks.

It's funny how Pratt always goes on about how bettman is just about the money and he'll damage the league in order to get expansion fee's etc yet right now the NHL has never been stronger in it's history. For Bettmans faults he's made enough good moves along the way to get the game where it is today.

It would be such an uncertain market for a city to rely on tourists and at-the-gate sales over season ticket holders.

With gambling playing such a major role in Las Vegas, the integrity of the team and the sport would be put into question with the possibility of match-fixing.

There is a reason why other major sports leagues haven't put a team in Las Vegas and perhaps the NHL should consider why that is.


I do remember the CFL expantion Las Vegas Posse and what a joke they were. There are a number of people south of the border who see the NHL as small time and not much above the mickey mouse CFL. Changing that perception in LV won't be easy.

A Las Vegas NHL team would cover the spread every time on home games.


Road teams would fly in to LV to play a game. -players get hammered on booze and worn out from partying with the ladies on the strip.

-might be a shit show on the ice for the tired road team when they play the Las Vegas team.

That's literally the going rate for an average NHL team by Forbes valuations (14, 15, 16, 17 add up to $1.457B)

Islanders and Panthers (easy swap to Quebec City staying in same division) are probably teams being relocated while Las Vegas and Toronto gets expansion teams

John Tavares on the West Coast
