If you honestly think its a coincidence that the NHL awards were held in Vegas the last two years and Las Vegas has been a big sponsor with Versus you are mistaken. One of the next expansion teams is undoubtedly going to be Las Vegas.
I have to agree that Vegas will get a team as will Quebec,Seattle,Southern Ontario and Portland. With Houston,Salt Lake,Halifax also due consideration. Some current NHL teams will move(Phoenix...)
