Posted on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by "T".
Are you a fan of Las Vegas and perhaps also of the National Hockey League? In that case we got some good news to share. According to cbc.ca, the city of Las Vegas handed in an official application on Monday (the last day to apply) to get its very own NHL team! Aside from Las Vegas, Quebec was the only other city to send in an application. An application to NHL costs approximately $10 million, inc[...]   Read more » Las Vegas Hands In Application For Own NHL Team!

It sounds very expensive just to have an application process heard and the cost of $500million for a franchise does seem quite high to start a hockey team.Also a big risk for whoever finances it.
Not many people in the UK are into ice hockey and it doesn't really get much attention but it always looks good on TV.

I have never really watched much Ice Hockey but, when the Winter Olympics are on, i normally catch a couple of games and i really enjoy it. I hope that they get their own team and good luck to them

An NFL or NBA franchise would make more sense here, since this city is getting constant droughts one after another, so bringing a sport here which this much waterconsuming is going to get some backlash IMO. Especially for the first couple years when they r going to loose 50 something games every season.

Do NHL make much money?I don't think the hockey arena would hold more than 15-20,000 fans so maybe they should go for a NFL team.
I am with you Bowie and the thought of a ice hockey team in the desert just sounds strange and where would it be situated,it must cost a fortune for prime land/areas of Vegas.

Glendale, San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles have NHL teams too, but three out four of these 'desert' teams are operating in one of the world biggest economic entity: California. Though an NBA or NFL franchise would probably cost more, it would be a better business opportunity at least in Nevada.

So, after seeing that other news article here about how Las Vegas just got behind Macau in terms of individual casino revenues but they less and less generate their revenues from gambling, I can see why they would push for one or two sport franchises more aggressively in the future. NFL would never come here since they see gambling as 'evil' but anything else could be an open race IMO.
These corporations obviously want to make Vegas appear as a tourist destination first, and gambling second - too bad the '08 crash killed the timesharing business - but hey real estate just became cheap again 4 a moment in Nevada because of it...
