They already have a hockey team in Vegas. The Wranglers in the ECHL. There won't be an NHL team there at any time. They have enough problems getting a smaller arena filled with enough people, moving a sparsely populated team from Phoenix to another area with a sparse hockey population won't cut it.

I'm tossed on this. The biggest problem is many players (who are now denying it) said they didn't want to play with him as coach any longer. Who knows the real truth? He was good on many things, not so much on others. I fear that his replacement will have many areas that he won't be so good on.
