Winnipeg Jets Custom Jersey Ain’t Bringing The Heat

Ideally, Las Vegas hockey would take after Winnipeg

Talks of NHL expansion have been swirling around the league for quite some time, but no storyline on the matter is more intriguing than the possibility of Las Vegas serving as home for one of the league's new teams. If the NHL were to expand to Las Vegas, it would be the first major American sports franchise to call Sin City home, but why does Las Vegas want an NHL team? Rather,...

Bettman: Jets' return to Winnipeg could be example for Las Vegas

  What the True North ownership group has done since getting the Winnipeg Jets from Atlanta could be an example for Las Vegas if the group led by Bill Foley is awarded an expansion franchise.

The goalie is one of the most important players on the ice, if not the most important.  Taking...
