I will agree to this, as long as they are named the Supersonics.

A picture of Robin Williams could serve as the logo.

At least the late-game flubs could be blamed on the team name.

Is it too late to tie the Franchise's marketing to the show Frasier?

Who the hell would go to a game in Vegas? Most of the citizens there work nights and the rest are gambling and going to shows - at night

Vegas seems more like a Florida or a Phoenix. Seattle and Kansas City seem more apt to support an NHL team. So instead of expansion let's just relocate the formers to the latters. I don't really want more teams.

Oh yes it is. Just not right now. Some day the Coyotes and the Panthers will no longer exist.

Both teams should merge in Vegas and be the Nevada Peyotes.

All Bettman has to do is move Florida to Seattle.

That is literally it. Then go back to 3 divisions of 5 teams.

The revenue from a team in Seattle easily crushes any potential revenue from Florida.

You need an arena first, dawg. Just sit tight for a year or two and you'll get the NBA to finance an arena, then you can jump on than bandwagon. If you move now, the NHL is on the hook for an entire arena. May as well just wait the extra year or two.

Florida should move to Oklahoma City. A proven superior sports market to Seattle.

And, more importantly, it is closer.

I'll fight that like a mofo.

It would take OKC out of the Stars area

And they'd have to give the Oil money. Can't have that

Ha.

"Well, we aren't talking about expansion at the moment. But IF, and I do mean IF, we were going to add a team in Las Vegas, it would be owned by the Maloof family and it would play in the brand new arena we just toured."

This is like OJ's "If I Did it" book.
