    Still though, vegas is going to be busy in the next few drafts. I hope the scouts are ready.

    Big sigh of relief seeing the return for taking Thorburn.

    Some nice young pieces, assuming most stick. Exciting next few days for sure.

    I was hoping for a bit more heavy in 2018 but looks like they've only added one 2018 so far.

    In terms of the scouts, they're at a real disadvantage to the 2017 ones. I'm sure scouts on other teams have far more data on certain 2017 players and can track trends just because they zeroed in on certain guys years ago and probably have been tracking certain players better. Our staff would just have the data from this season and any additional data only if they happened to be tracking that player from a previous job.

    Today was fun but the next few days will be even more exciting. Three 1st round draft picks, a bus load of defensemen, and teams lining up to make deals with the Knights. Overall I think Las Vegas did better than I was thinking with the draft. I have to imagine the Knights switch in and out several players and end up with a few more draft picks as well. I can't wait for tomorrow and Friday.

    Enjoy Fleury. I have a feeling he won't be here long.

    MAF is a total class act. You will love him and I think he will shine for you guys. I am now a fan of the Knights (after the Pens of course). Hopefully some good things happen tomorrow for you all!!

    I love Fleury. I am gutted that he's no longer a Pen. He'll either play out his contract or be traded. He took one for the team.

    He did take one for the team, but I see the fanbase embracing him. They already made him feel at home while he was selected. The Vegas franchise may fall in love with his personality the same way the Pens did, and may want to keep him until he retires.

    currently

    Neal-Shipyachov-Smith
    Haula-Eakin-Perron
    Bellemare-Marchesseault-________
    Pulkinnen-Karlsson-Thorburn
    Lindberg

    Lindberg or Karlsson could be trade for that right wing spot.

    defense that I think is staying: Garrison, Theodore, Schmidt, Stoner, Sbisa, Emelin, Engelland, McNabb. The rest will be traded for prospects or picks.

    Fleury
    Pickard
    Berube (AHL)

    Not too bad. I wonder how different that lineup looks in a few days.

    The franchise and fans can love him all they want. It's clear that the they want him to be the face of the franchise but when he's asked about that he said that he didn't want to be the face of much and just wanted to play hockey.
    I know with the salary cap and free agency that most players don't have a single team career, but it just doesn't feel right that he's no longer a Pen. I know it had to be done, but I just have this hunch that he ends up back in Pittsburgh.

    2018 will load up just fine. There will be a flurry (no pun intended) of moves tomorrow when the freeze lifts and George will be active again I am sure.

    And then remember we will likely be players at the trade deadline, barring them getting off to a hot start. I expect them to sell/flip some guys they don't think will fit long term, maybe to include Neal if they cannot sign him.

    Vancouver fan here. Liking your team! Good (Vancouver trained!) GM, lots of picks, and from what I saw of the arena when I stayed in Vegas last, nice location and amenities.

    Yup, think it is going to go pretty well. Looking forward to the geographical rivalry and hopefully lots of road trips down there.

    All the best, Vegasians, or whatever you call yourselves!

    I really like this roster, a lot of quality throughout. There's holes, and the blueline is probably not going to be as solid as I expected, but the forwards have more scoring too.

    Got a feeling they see Lindberg as a key piece, but I probably like him more than most. And I really like Neal, hope they can get him to agree to a non-long term contract and have him captain this team. Really glad that McPhee didn't cave on an easy deal to let the Preds protect Neal.

    Camp's going to be fun to watch too with some of the prospects they acquired thrown in. I know Theo is going to show well, and if Tuch arrives in the manner the Wild expected him to last year watch out. That dude in particular could be an enormously critical piece if he starts figuring it out and he's in that window now.

    No complaints here, basically. I am a very happy and excited fan right now. :yo:

    I'm surprised they chose Neal over Auberg.
