After a good start my Canucks are back in the tank ........ When will they accept that they have zero scoring and need to clean house on the first line ..............

Leafs need a goalie yet again. Anderson is CRAAAP! They won't win much with this dude dropping to his knees and watching pucks fly over his shoulders game in and game out.
Rescue the sunken 'Good Ship Argonaut' and restore her in 2017, PLEASE!!!!

This is why the Leafs are continually bad. They throw money at unproven commodities and then have to watch the dismal results along with the fans.

Bump

31st franchise unvield as the 'Vegas Golden Knights'.

I was hoping for Silver Knights since Nevada is called the Silver State.

Disappointed that they're going with 'Vegas' dropping 'Las'.

Vegas is what tourist call the place and this team needs to cater to locals for success IMO

I think the name Golden Knights will shorten in time like the Mighty Ducks or Devil Rays to just Knights.

Boogie Knights would have been better .

I'm with you on this one Mighty Goose. When I lived there, I always would say when travelling that I am from Las Vegas. Everyone would do so, and amongst ourselves especially in business circles no one would say "Vegas."

And to this day, having a local phone number as well though I left back in 2008 for PA where I returned this year, I never say "Vegas."

I read somewhere today an article which the author claimed that the locals say "Vegas" more than Las Vegas. That might have been true a very long time ago in the prime of Wayne Newton and the like until the mid-1990s, but that has not been true for at least 15 years given the population explosion.

I'm okay with Golden Knights. Sure Nevada is The Silver State, but gold is worth at least 50 times silver historically.

And after this season though they likely won't be very good given the expansion status, I'm making the Golden Knights my top team though I'll continue to cheer for the Tampa Bay Lightning too.

2 weeks after the big launch.

The 500 million fee can't buy due diligence and get the 'i's' dotted beforehand.

NHL = Bush League :lol:
