  1. Better brand than another "MLB copy and paste" deal. If Allentown/Bethlehem can have the Iron Pigs, Pizza Rats is fine by me.
  2. Its a shame to see such hate towards a great story simply because others feel this team doesn't "deserve" this success, or because their team was awful for their first few season after expansion, or because they're in the desert, or because the Penguins dumped MAF, or because... or because... or because... People in this community were killing this franchise before they even had a name. "How DARE the NHL go to Las Vegas and not Quebec. Why does Bettman love the desert?!"... "Vegas? Not Las Vegas? Dumb!"... "Golden Knights? Foley's Army boner is a disgrace"... "That logo looks like a spartan helmet, not a knights helmet... never mind the "V"... Dumb!"... "This team is a dumpster fire and i'm gonna love watching it"... There are members of this community that have not wanted to give this a franchise a chance since it was announced, and now that they've defied the odds, well, now it has to be the expansion draft that no one complained about before or during the proceedings, or even until the All-Star break, when it became apparent that Vegas wasn't going away I remember being this miserable as a sports fan, and it was a cancer. I hope someday some here in this community can let go of some of their misery and be happy for these players, and these fans, and just enjoy the fun that this game is, and enjoy the fun that this story is.
  3. That is one of the finer looking trophies in all of sports. Always loved it.
  4. No one was saying Vegas was a playoff team. MOST people were saying Vegas was going to be the worst team in the league. People didn't start crying "rigged" until the Knights failed to fade after a hot start. The expansion draft wasn't rigged. The expansion draft wasn't unfair. I'm sorry some team's fans are upset because their teams haven't smelled success in forever, and this brand new team is where they've never been, but that doesn't mean the system was rigged for them (or for Pittsburgh, or for Chicago, or for Detroit, or for anyone). This isn't the KHL, as much as some of you seem to want it SO BADLY to be. All this is, is Vegas getting lucky with a top-level goalie in Fleury (due to being pushed out in Pittsburgh in favor of Murray), and good scouting and GM work in picking up players the rest of the league's GM's felt were expendable, and the coach for getting the absolute most of of these guys. There is no grand conspiracy. No one is out to get you.
  5. Hockey fans: "THE expansion rules for Vegas were UNFAIR! They were always destined to be good because the NHL stacked the odds in their favor! RIGGED!!!" Also Hockey Fans, 11 months ago: Shut up.
  6. The Vegas story is huge... just them being in it will get eyeballs, especially casual fan eyeballs.
  7. Before the season: "Vegas will not only be last in their division, but last in the league. 47 point, max" Since the All-star break: "THE LEAGUE RIGGED THIS FOR VEGAS! BETTMAN IS TEH WORST! THEY GOT TO PICK ALL THE BEST PLAYERS AT EVERY POSITION!!! NO FAIR!!! THEY DON'T DESERVE SUCCESS!!!" Either the NHL is rigging things for the Penguins, or for Vegas. Can't be both.
  8. When the 'Peg got the Thrashers and they did nothing but bash America, American hockey fans, and American teams and didn't let up... Made me go from being glad to see the Jets back, to hoping they don't get a bit of success... ...and to have them lose to an American market that "shouldn't have hockey" will be fun to witness...
