Vegas Golden Knights
« on: November 22, 2016, 09:23:02 PM »

Just had a ceremony in Vegas to unveil the team name and logo.  They will be the Vegas Golden Knights and seems color scheme is black and gold. 

Maybe this is why the Pens went back to the their retro gold (yellow) color instead of "Vegas" Gold.

1st selection for Vegas is Calvin Pickard, goaltender from the Avalanche.
2nd pick is Luca Sbisa, defenseman from Vancouver.
3rd pick from Arizona is Teemu Pulkkinen forward.
4th from the Devils is Jon Merrill defenseman.
5th pick from Buffalo is William Carrier forward and Vegas gets a 6th round pick from Buffalo.
6th pick from Detroit is Thomas Nosek a forward.
7th pick from Dallas is Cody Rakin a forward.
8th pick from Florida is Jonathan Marchessault a forward and they traded for Reilly Smith for a 2018 pick.

They are making their selections by starting with the worst team starting at Colorado ending with Washington the President trophy winner.

Vegas picks one goalie but they have to pick 2 more

Here are the last 6 picks for Vegas:

25th pick from the Dicks defenseman Clayton Stoner and they get Shea Theodore ina trade
26th pick from the Wild is forward Erik Haula and get Alex Tuck in a trade
27th pick from the Jackets is forward William Karlsson and they get in trade David Clarkson and 2 picks one is CBj's first round pick this year
28th pick from Chicago is defenseman Trevor Van Riemsdyk
29th pick from the Penguins is Marc Andre Fleury and Hagelin and Crosby who are in the audience are teared up. And they get a 2020 2nd round pick from Pittsburgh. So weird to see him in a different uniform
30th pick from the Capitals is defenseman Nate Schmidt and Caps fans are not happy. he was an up and coming defenseman who should have been a steady defenseman in their lineup last season but they traded for Shattenkirk instead

With all these picks, looks to me like Vegas is going for more of a gritty lineup. Going to look more like the LA Kings than a team like the Penguins. They also stockpiled a ton of draft picks so their scouts will be busy

Place went nuts when Fleury was picked. He was there in a Golden Knights jersey. I will be at PPG arena when Vegas comes to play the Penguins. Can't wait to see the video tribute the Penguins put on for Fleury

Clarkson (back) and Grabovski (concussion) are both on LTIR, so LV most likely just picked up the contracts as neither player has a projected return date.

Only 8 players have contracts that run past next season. That makes me expect the older guys (Neal, Perron, Methot) will be moved at the trade deadline.

Announcers last night were saying expect a lot of horse trading to be going on starting today
