    So, if Vegas pulls this off, the best strategy to succeed in the league will clearly be to dissolve your current team and start a GoFundMe to pay what I assume will be $750 million in expansion fees.

    If Vegas pulls this off, in the next expansion draft each team will be allowed to protect 30 skaters and 5 goalies.

    Not giving a sh-t who won really helped. It must have been hell to have a strong rooting interest.

    Srsly, if the whole country was forced to watch that game NHL fandom would quadruple overnight. So, to say 100k.

    You split into 2 16 team leagues - Premier and Championship. Bottom 3 from Premier get relegated and top 3 from Championship get promoted.

    I, for one, enjoy spending evenings by the lake watching hockey, and having it help close the gap to football season.
