Bill Foley Denies Max Pacioretty Trade Rumors, More



Bill Foley Vegas Golden Knights

In an interview with Las Vegas’ 8NewsNow, Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley shot down Max Pacioretty trade rumors. Subtly he dropped in another nugget: he’s recruiting other teams to play in Vegas.

He did acknowledge that the Golden Knights have cap issues and will need to figure it out yet. When pressed on reports from Canadian media about Pacioretty trade rumors, he said¬†“we are not shopping Patches (Pacioretty)… he definitely is not being shopped.”

Even before Foley touched on the Pacioretty trade rumors, he spoke of how the California-based San Jose Sharks, L.A. Kings and Anaheim Ducks “won’t be playing” in their home state any time soon.

“So they need to come here,” Foley said.

Previous proposals have talked about the potential for a “mini-bubble” where teams travel to a hub city for a week or two, play games and return home after. That scenario hasn’t been talked about much lately, but Foley may reignite the conversation with his comments.

Foley also discussed wanting to bring an indoor lacrosse team to the Henderson arena in the next few years.
