As both a Seattle resident and huge hockey fan, I freak out a little every time I hear talk of "NHL expansion." So naturally I've been keeping an eye on the developments in Las Vegas.
In case you haven't heard, a group in Sin City — led by investor Bill Foley — is making a big play for an NHL franchise. They recently launched a season ticket drive that's doing well according to Foley.
He took questions from hockey fans in Vegas tonight, one of which was quite relevant to Icethetics readers. I'll let the tweets do the talking.
So they may not have a team yet, but they already have a color scheme in mind. No word on a name yet. (Keep in mind, the city was home to the ECHL's Las Vegas Wranglers until this season.) So given those colors, what do you think a Vegas NHL team should be called?
