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.
Fully agreed. It could also really raise the NHL's profile in the US.
