Could an NHL team make it in Las Vegas?

Rumors have been flying for awhile now that the NHL is looking to add a team based out of Las Vegas. Do you think the team would make it or would it be looking to relocate within a few years? Seems to me like Sin City wouldn't have a strong, local fan base and that most of team's income would be a result of... show more Rumors have been flying for awhile now that the NHL is looking to add a team based out of Las Vegas. Do you think the team would make it or would it be looking to relocate within a few years? Seems to me like Sin City wouldn't have a strong, local fan base and that most of team's income would be a result of tourists. Might be an interesting experiment, but I'm not sure how long it would last. I'd rather see places like Winnipeg or Hamilton get a team first where there already appears to be a large group of local people ready and waiting for a team (or in Winnipeg's case, waiting for another team). What do you guys think?
