    There's a link to another article where Nate Leaman says it's a no brainer to bring it to Vegas. Let's get it done.

    Places like Philly, Columbus, Chicago, St. Louis. Meh to all of them.

      At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

        Agree.

        Count me in for Vegas, period.

          Wow. I thought Tampa was off the board "forever."

          But I think some of that had to do with Yzerman. And now that he’s no longer with Tampa...

            I missed St. Louis last time. Never been there. So, I’d like to see it back there.

              No matter where it is, with the cost of tickets and the dead day between semi finals and the championship, I will not travel to attend. If they would just play back-to-back like they do al year long, the travel time and expenses could be justified. But not under the current format for me.

                This is why the host is important ó to make it a mini vacation surrounded by college hockey.

                  True, but I'm not as fortunate as some guys where Mrs. W. doesn't consider hockey to be a vacation. [emoji1787]

                    Only FFs I have been to were in Boston. I am not travelling to Buffalo or Columbus etc for this. I suppose back to back days would be fine since anyone who wants to make a real trip out of it can stay as long as they want. Never thought of back to back though. Considering the possibility of multiple OT games I think it's best to keep off day in between.

                    The bottom line is they need to stop assuming traditional hockey markets are the answer. Some are, some aren't. With the failure that was Buffalo try to get more destination spots in the mix. Start with Vegas, Tampa and although Nashville wasn't listed keep exploring that. I would also be ok with NYC since it has never been there.

                      The way the Preds fans act like college student section, I like this idea. Also, I think I could actually get Mrs. W. To go to Nashville if there was a good concert on the off day.

                        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                          Nashville would be a great host. However, Bridgestone Arena also has a long term deal for the SEC Basketball tournament and a heavy entertainment schedule that make having the Predators give up another home weekend at that time of year a difficult proposition.
