Team name should be: "Vegas Free Loaders" they got the most gift wrapped expansion draft in history while other teams had to pick thru garbage when they joined the NHL.

Last expansion team paid $80 million.  Vegas paid $500 million.  I think they said every team gets $16 million from Vegas.  I don't think that's free loading.

According to capfriendly.  The Vegas team is $800k under the cap currently.

Their team consists of 14 forwards, 14 defensemen, and 3 goalies.  All of which are contracted, RFA's or UFA's, which mean they are all experienced.  Since you only need 12 forwards, 6 dmen, and 2 goalies for any game.  My guess is, they are going to start wheeling and dealing at least 4 of their Dmen.  Methot is already getting huge hits on the rumor mill.

Vegas Golden Knights Trying To Move Into Top-3

Quote

If you’ve read or taken part in any of the live chats, you’ll know that I’ve firmly believed for a while that the Vegas Golden Knights would find a way to get into the top couple of picks to get their hands on Nolan Patrick.

though the Stars have been clear about their willingness to move down if the right offer came along. With them also showing interest in the Golden Knights’ Marc Methot, hold on to your hats for the next few hours.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is a done deal, and they are just waiting to make sure Patrick is still available at #3.  Methot and the Knights #6 pick with maybe another higher pick.

it's probably something you already know, but at 30 teams, this is the most amount of teams there have ever been for an expansion draft.

NHL Trade: Golden Knights Trade Marc Methot To The Dallas Stars

Quote

The Vegas Golden Knights have traded defenseman Marc Methot to the Dallas Stars for a 2020 2nd round pick and goalie prospect Dylan Ferguson.

 

Surprised Ottawa didn't counter.  Granted it's a second rounder which in the NHL is still a good price, but it's 3 years from now. 

I'm wondering if Vegas will start moving some Dmen and eating some cap in order to get young players or more picks.

Nine goals in the first preseason game. If they can just keep that up all season...

The big news locally is that a lot of people didn't get to see the game due to some weird glitch with DirecTV and a contract issue with Cox.

Are people in Vegas getting excited about the Magnetos?  Or are they only talking about the Traitors?

Something to take the city's collective minds off the events of last Sunday. Fleury kept the Knights in the game until they found their rhythm offensively. Two third period goals win it 2-1 at Dallas. I don't know how the rest of the season will go, but we won the first game in Las Vegas professional sports history.

The first home game is going to be insane. It has been sold out since shortly after tickets went on sale. Projected to be one of the loudest arenas in the NHL.

I watched.  Both teams seemed completely disorganized at times.  Lots of credit to LV for putting it together in the third and winning, that is all that mattered.

Hopefully a certain Jesus will drop the first puck.  Jesus Campos that is.  That would kick the emotions into gear.
