Default The NHL rolls the dice on Las Vegas

The league Board of Governors has unanimously approved Las Vegas as the NHL's 31st franchise, which will begin play in the 2017-18 season. Las Vegas secured well over 13,000 season ticket deposits, and they'll play at the T-Mobile Arena(a 20,000 seat facility that opened in April).

The NHL also deferred Quebec City's expansion bid; Commissioner Gary Bettman said the action was taken primarily due to the low Canadian dollar.

Call me nuts, but if the NHL does this right, the Las Vegas Black Knights could be the most successful expansion team ever. More than the Sharks, more than the Blue Jackets.
If the NHL can crank up the glitz and glamour, and sell hockey as just another entertainment option in Vegas, Bettman may hit a MAJOR home run here. And as the first major sport to set up their tent in Vegas, the NHL will have the massive Las Vegas stage all to itself. Having had a successful outdoor game in Los Angeles a while ago, where do you think the next outdoor game is going to go? The next Draft, All-Star Game, etc.
When the Florida Panthers started, they got 83 points in their first year. Don't be surprised if Vegas achieves something very similar.

The team hasn't actually been named yet although the owner said he likes the name "Black Knights".

I kind of like that nickname, too; of course, there is a team that already uses the nickname the Black Knights-the U.S. Military Academy(aka Army).

Completely agree.

I can also see fans from other markets travelling to Vegas, catching their team play the Knights and staying Vegas for a few days.

I will for sure, and I agree 99% of the population will call them the Knights.
