I don't see why a combo hockey/indoor sports arena which could also be used for concerts and other shows wouldn't work on the strip. Doesn't have to have a huge capacity either. Attendees could get to whatever casino owns the arena, gamble a bit til the game, then afterwards have dinner and drinks there.

If marketed properly, every Oilers/Flames/Canucks/Jets game would be well attended from people coming down alone.

The NHL should let Vegas, who knows how to market things better than they do, give an NHL team a shot.

The attendance couldn't be any worse than most of the teams in the south east.
