    Scratch that, Québec has also been invited to the second stage:

    Quebecor - the group backing a bid to bring NHL hockey back to Quebec City - has been invited to participate in the second phase of the expansion application process, deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed to Kevin Dube of Le Journal de Quebec.

    We confirm that the #NHL has retained Quebecor's candidacy for the 2nd phase of the expansion process. #Nordiques #Quebec City

    — Québecor (@Quebecor) August 5, 2015
    The news came shortly after the Las Vegas group confirmed an invitation to move along with a bid of its own.

    If Quebec was forced to play in the Western Conference, what a travesty. Away from natural rivalries, all that travel...

    ESPN’s Arash Markazi went on a tour of the arena being built in Las Vegas, and it sure looks like the progress is promising. Maybe most importantly, Markazi reports that that arena may be completed in 260 days (but let’s say “within a year” to be safe).

    FWIW, Daniel Negreanu (professional poker player, prospective co-owner of Vegas team) claimed that it was a "done deal" with NHL in Vegas in 2017:

    My favorite guy on TV not wearing a hockey jersey. Met him at world poker tourney 4-5 years ago.

    If he says it's a done deal....it's a done deal.
    Or maybe he's bluffing

    Yeah, DNegs is awesome. Definitely a bit odd, but it's a bit of a persona I think.
