To say the Vegas Golden Knights' 2017-18 season was surprising is an understatement. It was astonishing and flat-out jaw-dropping. Coming into the league as a first-year expansion team and completely shattering expectations was artistry. Sure, their relentless 100 miles per hour-esque style on offense and rambunctious home-ice advantage played a role. However, the emergence of forwards Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson as their top two scorers may have been the most significant contributing factor. Having a pair of youthful skaters with speed and a scoring touch goes a long way in having long-term success in the NHL. Given their offensive skill sets and young ages, can they become the NHL's next greatest dynamic duo? Below is why this may come to fruition. Both Recorded 75-Plus Points Last Season It's one thing to have a forward capable of racking up 75 or more points a season. Possessing a pair of players who can break that statistical plateau is another. The Golden...

Remarkable. Astonishing. Flat-out unexpected. Those are some of the terms that could justifiably be used to describe the Vegas Golden Knights inaugural NHL season. A Pacific Division title that was followed by a marvelous run to the Stanley Cup Final symbolized the magical season, even though they fell short in the fFnal to the Washington Capitals. Prior to the playoffs, the Golden Knights posted a 51-win, 109-point regular season that saw them handle almost every team with ease. But now that the  Golden Knights have a full year under their belt, the other 30 NHL teams have a whole season of film to study, which will stiffen the competition for Vegas. So who will be their sturdiest competitors this coming season? Here are their three toughest matchups this season. Toronto Maple Leafs - Nov. 6, 2018 (Road) Whether it is Marc-Andre Fleury or Malcolm Subban in net, one of them will have to play their best game of the season when the Golden Knights take on this offensive juggernaut....

The headline might seem confusing, as the Vegas Golden Knights are in fact set to enter their second season of play, but it's true! The team has yet to name its inaugural captain. So who should be the first to wear the 'C' in a Sin City? Last Season's Alternate Captains Last year, the team was content to give a good chunk of the roster an 'A', including Deryk Engelland, Jason Garrison, James Neal, Luca Sbisa, David Perron, Reilly Smith, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. Neal, Sbisa, and Garrison are gone, leaving us with three holdover candidates that wore a letter last season. You could easily say that Deryk Engelland served as the de facto captain last year, taking the mic to deliver an inspirational speech before the team's home opener in the wake of the tragic mass shooting on Oct. 1, 2017. He also was the one to take the Clarence S. Campbell bowl on behalf of his team after they eliminated the Winnipeg Jets and captured the Western Conference championship, bookending the...

In today's rumor rundown, the Golden Knights are trying to figure out what to do with Erik Haula and his terribly horrid defensive season, the Minnesota Wild are trying to make changes with little success, rumors of Jonathan Drouin being injured are way overblown. Finally, the Anaheim Ducks are looking at their salary cap situation and realizing they may have to move a player like Jakob Silfverberg. Golden Knights Unsure of Plan for Erik Haula Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal writes that the Vegas Golden Knights are at a bit of a crossroads with second-line center Erik Haula. The team signed Paul Stastny in free agency and while Haula had a successful season offensively — 29 goals and 55 points — his line of David Perron and James Neal was awful defensively. In fact, they were among the worst defensively in all fo the NHL. Vegas general manager George McPhee said of that line, “It produced, but the goals against per 60 minutes was not good enough."...
