(Benjamin Hager/Las Vegas Review-Journal) @BenjaminHphoto When William Karlsson stood in front of his locker at City National Arena in late April, he twice made reference to the possibility of not returning to the Golden Knights. This isn’t to say the restricted free-agent center is leaving town, so don’t freak out just yet. But it does illustrate that even the perpetually glass-half-full Karlsson recognizes the Knights’ salary cap … [Read more...] about Golden Knights Karlsson is prime candidate to get offer sheet

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Rare whisky was the most lucrative investment tracked in a new luxury asset index, rising 40 percent in value in 2018 versus a 12 percent gain in collectors' coins, which was runner-up, index compiler Knight Frank said on Wednesday. The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index included rare whisky for the first time among alternative assets. In the 10 years to 2018, the value of rare whisky has surged almost 600 percent.
