It has been three days since the clock struck zero at T-Mobile Arena. While the Washington Capitals' players have been making appearances throughout Washington, D.C. with the Stanley Cup, the Vegas Golden Knights have cleaned out their lockers, disappointed about the end to their season. “It’s the worst feeling ever,” Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland said. “You never want to lose any game, but at this point it’s awful.” “It’s difficult to come up short,” Alex Tuch said after Game 5, fighting back his emotions. “I had the time of my life, but it wouldn’t be the same without this group of guys.” Despite ending the season with no hardware, the Knights franchise is optimistic about the future. Starting the season with 500-1 odds as an inaugural team and then making it to the Stanley Cup Final, there are a lot of positives to take away from this historic run. With any team that loses in the playoffs, questions loom as they prepare for the...

With the Vegas Golden Knights' miraculous first NHL season coming up just short of being one of the greatest stories in sports history, it is now time for the franchise to look forward toward its' first real offseason bonanza. While they technically existed in June and July last year, the focus was more about setting up a competent team for opening night than making a big splash in free agency. With a roster full of veteran players on expiring contracts, Golden Knights general manager George McPhee has a lot of work to do once again in the summer months in order to keep his team highly competitive in year two. However, the success of the Golden Knights this year could have a much larger effect on the NHL than just being a positive press story for their newest franchise. By pulling so much high-end talent off of other teams' third lines and bottom defensive pairings, GM's all around the league have to be asking themselves the question: "Do we need to sign a big name free agent,...

In today's Rumor Rundown we look at the fallout from the Vegas Golden Knights nearly-golden run and what that means for some very big-name free agents who want to stay but are going to need to be paid well to do so. Will the team also go big-game hunting in the offseason since the new NHL Expansion Draft rules don't apply to them? There is speculation on the status of contract negotiations between the Washington Capitals and defenseman John Carlson and someone close to the Ottawa Senators believes the team may have no choice but to trade their best player. On James Neal and David Perron Vegas reporter David Schoen spoke with pending unrestricted free agent James Neal who expressed interest in staying with the Golden Knights franchise. He said,  “I love it here. I thought we had a great thing going here. I want to win. So close. We have a great group of guys here, so I hope things can work out.” In a second tweet, Neal told Schoen, "I want to be part of a great team. I want...

There is nothing quite like the spectacle that unfolds when the horn sounds, marking the end of an NHL season. The winning team is filled with elation, throwing their gloves in the air and embracing each other in victory. The losing team, on the other hand, bows their heads in disappointment, as they know the opportunity to win the championship has slipped away. Last night, at T-Mobile Arena in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, it was the Washington Capitals who would experience the celebration. They had defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 en route to winning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. As the Caps' players were hugging each other, filled with overwhelming joy, the fans in T-Mobile Arena stood up and clapped for both teams. The Knights raised their sticks, thanking their fans for what has been a remarkable season. It was a classy gesture by the Vegas fan base, showing gratitude to a team that many thought would never get to this point. Long Shot Odds for...
