Back hitting the juice again. Probably shared some with the team.
They're a team full of speedy opportunists. The fact that the Canucks had extended. possession shifts against them today was. pretty sad.
Never bet against Vegas
Amazing what happens when a top pairing dman steps back into the lineup.
This thread is gold
Pretty good team all around. I love that 4th line. These three bros administer so much hurt on the opposing team, it's beautiful to watch. Scoring a bucket load of goals doesn't hurt either.
Stastny has been out for most of the season, too.
And they are back not
Patch can’t stop scoring
Btw, Stastny hasn’t played since the first week
The Knights haven't played a single game with the full planned Pacioretty-Stastny-Tuch line fully healthy.
MAF is amazing and kept them afloat during rough waters. Now they are getting healthy and starting to look like last years team.
Is it though ?
Cody Eakin quietly turning into a 2C, something that was expected to happen years ago but then he fell off.
Sounds like a Vegas thing to happen.
If the Max - Eakin - Tuch line continues to perform like a legitimate 2nd line they could just keep that together.
Marchessault - Karlsson - Smith
Pacioretty - Eakin - Tuch
Nosek - Stastny - Haula
Carrier - Bellemare - Reaves
Yeah not bad. Then they got Cody Glass coming up too.
**** Vegas man.
8-2-0 in their last 10 games.
This will continue to be bumped because the OP's post was especially smug, along with a bunch of other posts in this thread.
I don't think he was throwing the blame at Vegas for winning but how the league handled the new franchise.
Not a Cinderella story so thread is moot.
Maybe. Just maybe .. its possible that they are simply a decent team.
I know that will be hard for some to accept. But it just MIGHT be possible.
There are a couple of players who I was not overly impressed with last season that are winning me over this season. The first one is Cody Eakin, he seems like a completely different player than last season. The other is Ryan ****en Reaves, a guy I didn't want on the team... I actually think I wanted to jettison him into the sun, but he's been great on the 4th line... and the power play.
An NHL team playing Ryan Reaves on the power play.... Never thought I'd say that.
And what happens when Seattle doesn't come out of the blocks like Vegas?
What will the excuses be then?
They weren't handed anything.
They were a team that everyone thought would be in contention for Dahlin.
Then it was...."Hahahaha.....see they do suck!! Was just a fluke!! Right where they belong"!!
Now that they are back to playing good/great hockey it's back to the ol' standard....."They were gifted a great team! So unfair"!
I just wish the league would fill his team division with mockery teams instead of the Pacific. How can we ordinary teams in the Pacific even make the playoffs after Seattle joins? They and Vegas will be clear division winners every year for the foreseeable future with this league mockery going on.
I remember that !
It is just strange that franchises that have waited decades to be competitive working hard to draft players and develop them, players after players after failed experiments that a new team comes in and go to the Stanley Cup finals. I remember people salivating at the players Vegas would get. Hey we have wanted years to have a guy like Theodore and these guys get him for free. It's not like McPheee has ever been known for being a genius(the trade with the Wings and Habs showed that), it's just the new system that have allowed them to be this competitive. I also think it's more rewarding for a club like Nashville for instance that have done well early but at least struggled over the years to build themselves something good via good drafting, by their own means.
Maybe, just maybe, the "west is so much better than the east mentality", is coming through. The past 3 champs came out of the east, and it wasn't even close.
Who could take on any team from the west could be as good as the east.
The Capitals smoked Las Vegas and beat them for the cup last season.
Cinderella story is wrap.
The Golden Knights are going nowhere this season and nobody gives a 2 ****s about them.
You might want to get that ****hurt treated.
EDIT: ****hurt is censored?
