Cool GDT idea


In Topic: Syracuse Crunch set indoor attendance record

Huh, they hold the record for ALL professional hockey now. How long do you think this will stand until Bettman comes up with some half-baked plan to put the SCF in larger, non-hockey arenas? 

 

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing some Wings playoff games at the Palace...IF the Palace held around 30,000k. Unfortunately, it is nowhere near that. 

 

This is kinda cool.

Attendance was definitely helped by the fact that Utica and Syracuse are less than an hour apart.

 

I am surprised they haven't bulldozed the carrier dome yet tho. (1979-80 - http://en.wikipedia....i/Carrier_Dome)

In Topic: Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

13 November 2014 - 02:22 PM

This is moving awfully fast for something that wasn't even a possibility two weeks ago.  It's almost as if they've been working on this for years and continually lying to the press and fans.

 

The NHL has settled on owners for the new franchise: 

 

 
 
 

 

Think they really haven't settled on a second city already?

They've settled on Seattle, but Seattle isn't cooperating at all...as far as we know. I heard Bob McKenzie talking about this the other day, and his sense is also that the league won't do a one-off expansion for just Vegas....there would have to be at least one other city at the same time. 

 

The only city that fits the bill at this point is QC, but that ruins the "alignment", unless they get creative with conferences and divisions and whatnot.

I like the idea of the Panthers just moving there.  Why have an expansion, when you have a franchise that is struggling to stay afloat?

 

I like the idea of Las Vegas having a team, but if they continued to struggle, they would have more "fans" in the concourse playing the slots and watching TV monitors, than actually sitting in the arena.

 

Tack on a 400 million dollar RELOCATION fee, and I think this would work.
