Vegas Golden Knights

The 2018-19 NHL season is finally upon us and with it comes the frivolous task for writers like me to get you ready for the season and make some silly predictions for the Golden Misfits: Part Deux. Much like last season, the Vegas Golden Knights will enter the season with something to prove. Last year, it was a group of castaways each with a chip on their shoulder banding together to form a potent force. They vowed revenge on their former teams and showed through their play that those teams were wrong to leave them exposed in the expansion draft, or for sacrificing them to protect other players. As for this year? Well, the 2018-19 Golden Knights are out to show everyone that last season was no fluke. Making the Stanley Cup Final in your first season is a hard act to follow, but if any franchise can rise to the occasion, it's this one. Reinforcements were brought in to bolster a solid core and money was spent to keep key pieces in place. But before we can dive into the...

There's no cookie cutter formula for building a franchise. The front office implements a five-year plan, then is judged by fans and the all-important win column on whether it worked or not. The hope is for gradual improvements each year while eventually making a run at the postseason. And patience is key, as finding the winning combination is a delicate balance that can be elusive. Management has to make choices regarding player evaluation, teaching the kids, bringing in veterans, balancing the salary cap, and dozens of other decision in an attempt to build a winner. You can hit the jackpot with a star player from the draft, only to have the personnel around him underachieve. You can develop a terrific offensive team, only to see a shortage of wins because of a soft defense. It's no easy task to construct a winner, although on rare occasions it may seem that way. The Vegas Golden Knights under general manager George McPhee were one of those rarities, a remarkable story last...

The hardest division to predict for the 2018-19 NHL season might be the Pacific Division. There's plenty of star power amongst the eight teams, but that being said, there's plenty of wildcards as well. Health is a crucial component for many teams in the Pacific, but the Vegas Golden Knights proved last year that even with injuries, sometimes all you need is a little magic and Lady Luck on your side. So in putting together this year's preview of the Pacific Division, we've looked at each team, their strengths, weaknesses, and biggest question mark heading into the season. So why is the Pacific Division proving to be so unpredictable? With an offensive stud in Clayton Keller and a goalie that stood on his head last year (Antti Raanta), the Arizona Coyotes are proving they might be able to give some teams a run for their money. The Anaheim Ducks were dealt a massive blow with some of their injuries, but with Rickard Rakell's emergence, a deep defense, and a world-class...

Almost one year ago the NHL expansion Vegas Golden Knights won their first home opener, 5-2, over Arizona with a T-Mobile Arena sellout crowd of 18,191. It was an emotional game for a variety of reasons. The Knights became the first NHL expansion team to win its first three games. It was not just the team's first home game ever but came a week after the tragic shooting at a concert outside Mandalay Bay just down the street. It was an unforgettable night for the community. Just as important, the NHL fan interest never stopped. On StubHub, a ticket resale site, Vegas was the top-selling NHL team during the 2017-18 season. The Knights won more than 50 games, a new record for an expansion squad, and took the Pacific Division title. By the time the playoffs were rolling, Vegas already sold out its season tickets for the 2018-19 campaign. And for the second year in a row, the Golden Knights are again the top-selling team on StubHub, surpassing the second-place Toronto Maple Leafs in...
