Erik Karlsson to Vegas…should the Golden Knights do it?

A little while ago I wrote an article about whether the Vegas Golden Knights needed to pursue John Tavares this summer, and now that situation is over after he signed a huge deal to go home to Toronto, is there a different big name Vegas need to go after?

Obviously Erik Karlsson is less than happy in Ottawa, I’m sure it’s a lovely city, I’ve never been but I’m sure it’s a nice city, just a toxic environment within the Senators organisation.

Now more than ever it looks like the Senators captain will be on his way out of the Canadian capital after reports the team are allowing interested teams to open contract talks with the 28-year-old.

After it appeared as though the relationship between Ryan Reaves and the Vegas Golden Knights had ended, TSNs Darren Dreger reported late Saturday night that the bruising forward is expected to stay in Vegas, agreeing on an extension.

Vegas could be about to lose some key names.

Free Agency is hard on fans, some guys just can’t strike a deal to stay around no matter how much the fans want them to be there.

It looks like the Vegas Golden Knights might have to say goodbye to some of their history making stars who helped guide them to the Stanley Cup finals in just their first year of operation as an NHL team.

Vegas didn’t nail the draft, but they didn’t need to

The Vegas Golden Knights May have had to wait until day two of the NHL draft, but just how well did they do this weekend in helping their team down the line?

Nobody expects you to find an NHL ready talent on day two, let alone outside the top 5 picks usually, so the Golden Knights will just have to keep pumping players into their prospect pool to try and make sure that the incredible inaugural season they’ve just had wasn’t one fuelled by hype, but more fuelled by an actually competitive team that will be just that for the foreseeable future.

O Captain! My Captain! Is it time for a captain in Vegas?

When the Vegas Golden Knights hit the ice for the first time to start their first ever season in the NHL way back in October, they did so without a captain.

Admittedly, after the tragic events in Las Vegas in October, and the fantastic speech delivered at centre ice, Deryk Engelland sort of assumed the unofficial captains role, but through the season he had an A on his jersey along with James Neal, David Perron and Luca Sbisa.

So honestly this post requires a bit more thought than I’m giving it because some influential players aren’t guaranteed to be around for the 2018/19 season.

Also, do Vegas need a captain?

Marc-Andre Fleury doesn’t need to apologise to anyone

After the Vegas Golden Knights lost 4 – 3 in game five of the Stanley Cup finals to the Washington Capitals, who as a result lifted their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, Marc-Andre Fleury had the difficult task of facing the media shortly after.

It’s never fun having to talk about a loss, but talking about one where the other side win what every team has fought since October to get makes it all that more tough.

But during his media scrum in the Golden Knights lockeroom, Fleury did something he didn’t need to.

He said sorry for not winning the cup.
