    The Golden Knights are now where they are supposed to be.

    Add it to a miracle they were able to create last year.

    So Karlsson and his 25% shooting percentage wasn't sustainable

    At this point of the season, that means you're pretty much done.

    Not easy to make up points in this league.

    They accomplished last season what many franchises that have been in the league for decades never have, and nearly won the Stanley Cup. All because of the moronic expansion draft that Seattle is going to be getting as well. Joke.

    We'll take him in Carolina. It is his destiny after all since it's the place he was left out on the curb waiting for a taxi.

    I think a lot of people saw this coming. Which made the Tatar and Pacioretty trades so dumb. Even while they were in the chase I thought either Neal or Perron should've been dealt. It was a perfect storm last year and now reality is set in.

    Eh I don't blame them for not making a move for the pending UFAs last year. And getting to the SCF - right call.

    The Tatar move was clearly "EK trade fell through let's drop a piece or two from the deal and get someone else". Was a bad deal at the time, looks worse now that they traded him + other pieces for a guy who looks toast.

    GMGM is not a good GM. He had some teams over the barrel during the EDraft, and he still made some questionable moves. I kind of feel bad for Seattle because of the expectations set. GMs are going to be better prepared this time around.

    A pity. They were amazing last year. I will root for them again, if they make playoffs.

    A lot of good teams last year are not even in the picture. It's not just Vegas.

    Oh come on. No one saw the team they drafted and expected them to even be half decent, let alone make the playoffs

    I forgot about that. That just adds another layer to how stupid that was. I remember hearing that those pieces offered for Tatar were offered for Karlsson but the deal fell through. I remember thinking why not just wait till the summer. The picks plus Hague and Haula for Karlsson + Ryan would've been a solid deal for both sides.
