    I'll just copy my last post:

    I just don't see how Vegas loses with Fleury in net. Any other team would've been bounced after round 1 in four games if they only scored seven goals, let alone getting the sweep. Instead, he's had his best regular season in 8 years and his best playoff ever.

    I want Ovechkin to demand a trade and land in Vegas.

    Then Vegas better win the Cup this year, because once Ovechkin gets there, they sure as heck ain't gonna win one. Ovechkin is the Patrick Barkley (Charles Ewing) of the NHL. His name is never getting etched on the Stanley Cup.

    It's pretty amazing what has happened in LV. Let's be honest, virtually nobody outside that locker room saw a playoff appearance happening, let alone playing to June.

    But, when they land a very solid coach (another Panthers mistake), a franchise goaltender, and naturally a team full of guys with a chip on their shoulder (essentially the same as saying they were in a 'contract year')...

    They're a dang fun team to watch, to boot. Fast, sneaky skill. I want to say I think Tampa finally ends this chapter if they match up, but I think LV actually beats the Caps should they come back.

    Exactly. Anyone saying that Vegas was "handed" their team by the NHL obviously doesn't understand what actually happened. Especially those Wild fans here who seem to think that Tuch and Haula were stolen by Vegas when George McPhee held Chuck Fletcher's dog at gunpoint.

    A lot of GMs just got brutally embarrassed. I'm looking at you, Garth Snow.

    If Vegas figures who is heir-apparent to Flower they'll be set for a decade. Sorry, it's not PK's little brother Mal.

    Vegas has 27 picks over the next three draft years. There are only 7 rounds, so they have 27 of 21 possible! Yes, that is correct.

    A lot of GMs were too smart by half (tip of cap to the Brits). They thought they were outsmarting McPhee by cutting deals and ensuring who'd be taken from them. But McPhee was merely amassing extra picks and players, and the "toss in" players he got all seem to fit his basic team design. See: Tuch, March-eh-can't-spell-it-so.

    It's not about the Wild being "outsmarted" it's about the available player pool afforded to Vegas that no other franchise before them had. Good on them for taking advantage, but Bettman can still kiss my arse for allowing it to happen.

    I saw a quote today that I think was a fair statement- that Vegas was given more of a leg up than any other expansion team in any other sport.
    Combine that with some GMs making dumb moves, MAF, and a few guys having career seasons, well, here we are.

    Well, the player pool today is significantly better than any other expansion team had available to them, too.

    To compare, realistically, it seems you believe LV should only have had access to AHL roster players.

    It's been said, but HARDLY ANYBODY COMPLAINED A YEAR AGO. Hindsight is 20/20, and only now is it a big deal because they are having early success.
