Brendan Smith reminds me of the Stralman signing - he'll likely be buried behind massive contracts for Alzner and Shattenkirk, but probably one of the best pickups.

Why not go for Shattenkirk?

They were too busy drafting absolutely nobody worth a *poo poo*.

Dreger said the price is high for Methot and the Stars are balking at the price. Good, hopefully Vegas trades him somewhere else.

I guess. The D needs an upgrade. If Nill plays this game with every available guy, it probably means nothing changes.

I wonder if we will see someone compare what Vegas will have when they are done vs what they would have had if they simply took whatever player they wanted from each team. Compare the haul of picks/prospects versus the better players they could have drafted.

That's the biggest problem is the majority of the players best days are behind them, it's not a smart idea to pay a premium for the players decline. In free agency short-term (1-2 years), it's not that bad of a deal vs giving up assets that are better used to trade for someone younger.
At least in Brendan Smith's case you're getting some of his best seasons next few years, before a decline starts to happen.

They, appropriately, went for strategy of acquiring draft picks and making the shittiest team possible to draft and develop for future instead of making a competitive bubble team.

Coulda maybe hauled in more picks though

Agreed. There is no chance they are successful for a while, as is the case with all expansion teams. Might as well just accept the shitty seasons in the beginning and treat it as if it was a rebuild for any other team.

Yeah, when Cody Eakin is the third-best player on your roster, you're going to struggle to win 12 games.

But at least Vegas has 3 1st round picks in this "weak" draft. And they got Shea Theodore, who will probably be awesome.

They really missed out on a cool opportunity when they passed up Jagr, tho.

Our cameras catch everything. Except, you know, a gunman who was in our hotel for a week smuggling in dozens of automatic weapons.

Former Stars AHL goalie Maxime Lagace is starting for Vegas tonight against the Rangers, as they're down to their 4th string goalie.
Lagace's backup goalie? Dylan Ferguson, the Stars 7th rounder traded to Vegas in the Methot deal.
Lagace played last night against the Islanders, he allowed 4 goals on 11 shots. Islanders won the game 6-3.

If Lagace is out tonight, Vegas will have 4 goalies out with injuries.

Dylan Ferguson is the 7th rounder from June that we traded to Vegas as a thrown-in for Methot.

The United States Army has been threatening to file a trademark claim over the Vegas Golden Knights’ branding, and yesterday they finally did so, submitting a formal Notice of Opposition with the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board on the last possible day. The notice, which you can read in full below, takes issue with the Golden Knights’ logo, coloring scheme, and name, which the hockey team shares with the Army’s parachute team.

The statement they released was great:

Indeed, the two entities have been coexisting without any issues for over a year (along with several other Golden Knights trademark owners) and we are not aware of a single complaint from anyone attending our games that they were expecting to see the parachute team and not a professional hockey game

The claim is pretty silly. It's a lot like the more recent music copyright claims where artists have moved away from suing over stolen lyrics or stolen music and are now suing because songs have similar feel.

The colors are kind of the same. The names share one word but not both words. They both use a knight's helmet in their logo, but the helmets looks entirely different. At best, you could say the Golden Knights were clearly influenced by the Army's designs, but enough changes were made that this shouldn't be a problem.
