Just saw a tweet that the NHL has awarded a franchise to Las Vegas.

I don't follow hockey, but I'm surprised that Quebec doesn't already have a team.

Quebec did have a team. It's now the Colorado Avalanche.

And for all the bitching the Quebecois did about losing their team, if they'd been supporting them all along they wouldn't've left in the first place.

And no, you can't have the Hurricanes.

Bettman has got to go!  :knuppel2:

This has got to be the most asinine thing he's ever done. Who the F*&K is going to see a hockey game in Vegas?!?  ??? It's the f*@king desert FFS! Look how well that worked for Phoenix!  :idiot2:

The local don't have a clue, tourists can find a million other things to do other than go to a game they can stay in their home cities to see.... unless yer from TO in which case you probably can't afford to go.

They're counting on lots of tourists to go to the games, which should be an awesome home ice advantage ::)

I'm sure taking in a hockey game will be tops on the list of every visitor to Vegas.

Yes, let's expand the league by 1. Nothing like coming up with a balanced schedule  for a 31 team league.  :idiot2:
