NHL Hedges Bets On Vegas

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from the Miami Herald:

The NHL won’t rule out Las Vegas, but said changes would need to be made regarding sports gambling issues.
‘‘Las Vegas we’ve had talks with—it’s a great sports town and certainly could be considered,’’ NHL spokeswoman Bernadette Mansur said. ‘‘There would have to be restrictions with gambling. But it’s all speculation. We are not considering any expansion or relocation of clubs.’’ Mansur reiterated the NHL hopes the Penguins—whose future is in question—will remain in Pittsburgh.

Paul added this at 8:46am, from the New York Times,

Meanwhile, given the N.H.L.’s struggles, perhaps it was not surprising that Bill Daly, the league’s deputy commissioner, said in a telephone interview Friday that the league would have a “flexible approach” toward local betting on the sport if a franchise ended up in Las Vegas.
Goodman first met with officials from the N.H.L. several years ago. “There’s clearly a return interest,” Daly said, adding that some private parties in Las Vegas were having continuing discussions.

Blues want to keep Brewer and Legace, talking contracts with them, but it they don’t sign, look for them to move the last 24 hours of the deadline.
Forsberg- same stuff we have heard.

added 3:00pm, from Bill Clement at MSNBC,

I once said about Dominik Hasek that he protects his goal as if his children were in the net behind him. I made that remark about a dozen years ago and it is still true today.
Hasek is 42 now, and he’s all about the purpose of helping bring another Stanley Cup to Detroit.
But he can’t do that if he’s not healthy, and given his chronic groin problems the Red Wings are holding their collective breath that Hasek holds up through the playoffs
