What is goalie interference? We may never know.
Seattle is the front runner for one specific reason.....
Its like a catch in the NFL.
Skills competition was fun this weekend. I still find the actual AS Game to be somewhat boring, even with the 3 on 3 format.
Really? I find it's more interesting...
Islanders to play 12 home games at Nassau next year
Yup. 12 next year, and then half the following season.
Seems part of a ploy to keep Tavares, since he apparently dislikes the commute to Barclay's.
What an incredible night...3 goals in a span of a minute, after trailing 2-1, to the Flames of Calgary. Remarkable!
....but wait, that's not all.
I am royally surprise how well this team is playing throughout the season. Whatever happen when their season comes to a close, it has been a successful year, made for the history books.
I'm still waiting for your update from the Islander game last week
My team shat the bed.
If Frolik doesn't make that bad pass, Flames win.
The Carolina Hurricanes may play games in throwback Hartford Whalers gear down the road
Big if true.
Seattle guaranteed similar draft by NHL - application to be handed in.
So awesome if it happens...
Not surprising. With a 650 million dollar price tag, you wanna make the playoffs sooner rather than later.
It's a way to initially build a ground-roots solid fan base, obviously from the very beginning & and a lasting following, particularly from the youth, for many seasons to come.
Great, an expansion team in the Pacific Northwest that's likely going to be better than the Canucks.
If they're like the Knights, better than everyone in the west. Was at Knights/Jets game last night - Vegas is very impressive in person. Jets were the better team overall but the Knights made the Jets work hard. Very entertaining game and one of four last night to feature a botched goalie interference review. Business as usual for the NHL.
Seriously, much respect to the Knights and all, but trying to engineer a competitive new team through the expansion rules is like pro wrestling booking pretty much.
I feel like a lot of GM's overthought the expansion process and made some dumb deals to protect mediocre players and wound up giving up even better assets to do so.
Vegas getting Marchessault AND Reilly Smith from Florida is criminal. Dale Tallon should be jailed for that.
Then getting Alex Tuch off Minnesota so that they wouldnt take Matt Dumba? Really?
I'd assume (hope?) that these GM's will be a bit smarter the next go around. But then again this is the NHL and most of the GM's are dolts.
Well expect Seattle to ask for the same expansion draft format awarded to the Knights of Vegas.
and if they're paying $150 million more for the team, they should get it
Well, the Knights of Vegas only needed 28 games to match the record set by the 1979-80 Whalers of Hartford(known today as the Hurricanes of Carolina) in 40 games, for most home wins(22) by a team in its inaugural season, when they defeated the Canadiens of Montreal 6-3. Even Bugsy Siegel couldn't have pulled this off....congrats GK.
Aren't you being overly fancy with the Name of City descriptions.
The Knights of Vegas maintain the best record in the league with a decisive victory on home ice, over the Canucks of Vancouver 6-3...posting their 86th point with a 41-16-4 record through 61 games. The Knights are an outstanding 24-5-2 in the confines of the Fortress; yet, if the top team in the Western Conference hope to make a deep run in the playoff, they are going to have to shore up their record abroad. The team is 17-11-2...although 6th best in the league, there's still plenty of room for concern, when consider facing top teams in a series. The team is 2-2 as well, in shootouts...at .500, that's pretty much league average. The Golden Knights look to improve on their road woes Monday night, as they face natural rivalry, the Kings of Los Angeles at the L.A. Forum. Exceeding Expectations!
There are no shoot outs in the playoffs FYI...
