This really was you’re best show yet. Great guest. Seems like having a guest with you really took the dynamic between you two to a new level, helped the show keep focused, and the show overall was much tighter.
As far as a star to market around I don’t think it needs to be an aging star or even a big time scorer necessarily. Las Vegas loves MMA and boxing. l think we just get professional fighting unlike any other city. So if our city embraces violence why not just roll with it and get, maybe not a goon but a dude that can lay people out. Ryan Reaves has been suggested. Las Vegas needs the Grim Reaver!

In 1992, Manon Rhéaume tried out for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and was signed as a free agent. This was the first time a woman tried out for an NHL team. She played one period in an exhibition game against the St. Louis Blues, allowing two goals, and played in another exhibition game against the Boston Bruins in 1993.
In that case, perhaps Vegas should sign John Scott as a publicity stunt? Scott is the biggest name in the fight game.
Just for the record, I’m anti hockey fighting.
Not saying we need a goon that can do little else (although goons are super cool). I’m talking about a dude that can dole out big legal clean hits and take care of himself if someone happens to take exception. Let’s be honest the violence of hockey is a big draw. You take it out and you’re left with ice soccer. I don’t think we should be above publicity stunts and I personally love a good one. I wouldn’t be against a Scott signing. He’s a name people like me at least recognize. You have me sold James. We need the Grim Reaver and Scott.

Hilary Knight. First signing in Golden Knights history. A step too far?
‘Let’s be honest the violence of hockey is a big draw.’
It’s not for me, but I wouldn’t disagree.
Maybe not for the regular season but certainly an exhibition game or two. I would love to take my daughter to a game with a female player. As far violence I don’t just limit that to the fist fights (which I’ve gotten hooked on through youtube. Every guy you’ve mentioned previously has his own Rocky montage. It’s amazing) I enjoy the big hits too. I get the health concerns but a part of me is like well then go be an accountant.

The reason I brought up Hilary Knight, I saw her on a Boston Bruins telecast. She is an excellent speaker. Vegas could be a pioneer by hiring her as a studio analyst after camp. Just thinking outside the box.
Hmmm I wonder if Conor McGregor can skate…..
I see your Conor McGregor, and raise you Ronda Rousey.
If Foley wants to reach out more to digital media he could sign goon Paul Bissonnette. @BizNasty2point0 has 934K followers on twitter.
Great podcast. NHL went to color at home for some sort of anniversary. I don’t remember which one. It was really before they started alternative jerseys, which I believe they are not doing next year. Chicago’s white jersey is the best jersey, not just in hockey, but sports, period. If they have kept that policy for the alternative jersey program, that would be idiocy. That is saving money, for short-sightedness. Just like the NFL didn’t want to spend peanuts to watch over footballs and spent four years dealing with deflated footballs because the billion dollar NFL went cheap. Spend the money, Gary.
As for a captain, is it Jason Zucker automatically if he is picked in the expansion draft?
Maybe I’m in the minority but I think Chicago’s red jersey blows away their whites. I generally like the color jerseys much more than the whites. I love that the Lakers have gold and forum blue jerseys and hate their white alternates. I like that we’ll be wearing colors at home. I don’t really care how sharp the visiting teams look.
Phi150, I always like to see what teams wear, even if I don’t like that team. I actually think that Chicago’s black version was one of the few alternates I liked. I don’t know how often they wore them, but I thought they looked great. And I am just old school. White at home. Especially if they are going with a no alternate policy next year.
