Bill Foley has big plans for Vegas -- and beyond


WHITEFISH, Montana -- A thousand miles north of Las Vegas, the NHL's newest owner, Bill Foley, sits in a conference room overlooking powder blue mountains. While many associate the Vegas Golden Knights with a flashy arena, glittery attractions and all the other temptations Vegas has to offer, this laid-back resort town -- just one hour from the Canadian border -- is Golden Knight territory, too. So, it turns out, is the rest of Montana, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming -- and even slivers of Arizona and California. That area comprises the authorized distribution area for Golden Knights television broadcasts.
"There's no professional sports team that attacks that marketplace, that's involved in that marketplace," Foley says. "So we can be the team of the Rockies, the professional sports team of the Rockies."
