I agree homer. I don't think a Vegas team will work. Which is probably why they will do it before Quebec lol

If you have an intolerable blue team fan crowing their record, here's something to think about:

 

Blue team record: 19-9-3

First 31 games: 21 home games, 10 road games
Next 29 games: 8 home games, 21 road games


Playing so many games on home ice likely has something to do with their record so far, and we'll see how long that lasts when they have to be on the road a lot for the next two months.

there goes Homer raining all over Pan and Canucks upcoming vacation plans to Sin City.

 

of course since Homer made such perfect sense on why NHL won't work without a real fan base u just know Bet-man will put a team in the Nevada desert so the people in the Arizona desert will have a rival

Just finished listening to this week's show and have a though about the NHL having a team in Vegas and why I think is a bad bet.

I Googled top Vegas shows and came across the following list.  

O Cirque du Soleil at Bellagio

Celine Dion at Caesars Palace

Terry Fator at the Mirage

Absinthe at Caesars Palace

Le Rêve - The Dream at Wynn Las Vegas

Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas

Penn & Teller at Rio

Boyz II Men at The Mirage

Human Nature at the Venetian

Blue Man Group at Monte Carlo

Now what do all these shows have in common?  They are all inside Hotel/Casinos.  Don't Vegas hotels/casinos want to keep their patrons inside their buildings as much as possible?  Giving comp tickets to a show in their own building is kind of like a loss leader because they know they will make the money back.

Why would hotels give comp tickets to a hockey game to a venue they don't own and have people spend money there instead?  I just don't see it happening. 

Sure you might get you Pans and Canucks of the world who might take a Vegas trip and catch a game, but that's a small percentage.  If you're a hockey fan, you can catch a game in your team's city and 29 other cities.  The shows on the list above only play in Vegas and have an appeal to a much wider audience.

I'd be willing to bet that if you offer the average visitor to Vegas a pair of comp tickets to a Vegas-Edmonton game or a pair of comp tickets to any of the above shows, most will take the shows.  If it is such a great idea, don't you thing the NFL, NBA and MLB be there already?

Remember, the house always win and they win more when their patrons stay inside their building.

Kane did spend many years in Atlanta.. think that maybe it was a bad influence? I guess he hasn't done anything dumb lately so he was due. Watched the ceremony for Beliveau yesterday. It was concise and a great tribute. Well deserved.

 A sad day. Jean Beliveau was my hero when I was young. One of the classiest men to ever play the game. I always tried to get no. 4 on all the teams I played for.

He's Canadian,  how did this happen?  usually this is reserved for U.S. football and basketball players and South American footballers......
