Bill Foley Says Las Vegas Is “In Good Shape” Regarding Expansion

from Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

Bill Foley knows he's playing a waiting game with the NHL in his attempt to bring an expansion franchise to Las Vegas. But with the news coming out of Seattle about two possible arena proposals, it's possible that Foley may have to wait a little longer.

The Seattle Times reported that the NHL is keeping an eye on a proposed arena in Seattle's Sodo District that Chris Hansen is looking to build. If the NHL were to wait on Seattle, it could be 2018-19 before the team could begin play.

Foley has his sights set on playing in 2017, if not sooner. But he may have to wait longer if Seattle becomes in play.

"I'm aware of what's going on (in Seattle) but in my communication with the league, our situation isn't dependent on third parties," Foley said Tuesday. "We believe we're in good shape and we're proceeding as if we will play in 2017."
