    Thanks to you guys, we're no longer the youngest team in the league.

    On a personal note, I've been rooting for a Seattle expansion for years, given that I didn't think Vegas was ever actually going to happen.

    Excited for the years of VGK-Seattle games to come!

    Real excited for you guys. I hope the team will fill the void of the Sonics and more. Hockey has brought the city of Las Vegas closer than anything I have seen before. I hope the same for you all.

    Congratulations Seattle and Seattle fans. It’s going to be exciting to see you join the league... it’s been a long time coming.

    Now, as for all those expansion records Vegas broke in their first season... leave them alone! :laugh:

    Welcome, Seattle! For those of you already NHL fans, you know what to do. If you are a sports fan in general and want to get in on the ground level with your new team, then I can tell you from my experience with VGK, it will be a ride you will enjoy and never forget, even if you don't enjoy the level of initial success we did.
    As for media carpetbaggers, they will come out of the woodwork and I hope you take some of ours away from here. Good luck and I'm looking forward to planning my [email protected] trip!

    Thanks! I wish it could've been a season sooner? How'd you get out of the expansion draft?

    The Knights don't get paid a piece of the $650MM so they don't have to lose a player.

    Welcome expansion cousin! While maybe not as close a cousin as Buffalo and Vancouver, I will forever consider you “family”. Family I want to kick the crap out of multiple times per year, but family none the less! Look forward to making my way up there soon.

    As a Kings & Knights fan, I'm looking forward to actually having a "home" team to root for! However, I'll still stay neutral when it comes to games against VGK & L.A. :nod: I'm not giving up on the 2-time Cup champs and the greatest Expansion team in history.

    Welcome Seattle! :thumbu:
