The announcement we’ve all been waiting for, and The Creator said he expected in December, appears as if it will be delayed once again.
No decision on expansion should be made at the NHL Board of Governors meeting in December.

I can confirm #NHL Board of Governors will NOT vote on expansion at December meeting. “Still working” says league. #Vegas#Quebec#Seattle

I wish I could pick apart the credibility of these two guys to make us all feel better, but you just can’t, they are both well respected in the hockey community and there’s no reason to doubt these reports.
The delay, as our friends up in Seattle point out, likely has something to do with the pending stadium vote in Tukwila.
Either way, the waiting game appears as if it’s going to continue into the new year, and as we’ve speculated here on SunBin.vegas, it will likely take 2017-18 out of the picture.

They could vote All Star Weekend in Nashville in January
