    What's your excuse?
    Good to see them reach out a bit.

    I know I'm technically in the Whitecaps assigned area according to the MLS, but I don't feel like they are even trying to appeal to me.

    I agree with this approach. Hockey may be a tough sell in Vegas, good to see the team reaching out in an effort to grow the game there.

    The more I hear about VGK's marketing strategy, the more I like it.

    You bet. So much of its just common sense, the sorts of things many have been screaming at the NHL & Expansion / Relo'd teams, that they should have been doing themselves for years.

    I was talking with some high school hockey coaches from Nevada a couple of years ago and they said their league has been getting bigger. Hopefully the Knights put some resources in those type of leagues like Anaheim and Los Angeles have done, I've seen first hand how much that type of support has helped those leagues.
