    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Just when you think the NHL awards can't get more unbearably awkward each and every year, they always somehow find a way to top themselves.
  2. I'm in the group of people that is happy about the Golden Knights success this year. While they did get a bit of an advantage from the expansion draft process compared to others in the past, they still did overcome some adversity and I would still consider them an underdog story. Going into the season, most people predicted that they'd be near the bottom of the Western Conference and wouldn't have a shot at a playoff spot. Now look at where they are. To add to what's being said above regarding the team being deep, while they are deep, it's still a team made up of 90% 3rd liners and 2nd or 3rd pairing players, plus a few players who up until this year may have only had potential to be a 2nd line player at best, plus Neil and Fleury. The only reason this is an issue is because they pulled of a winning season somehow, and to a lesser extent the whole sunbelt stigma that exists. I guess we'll just have to give it time to see if the Vegas experiment will be a fluke or not, both on ice and when it comes to drawing fans. Also, when it comes time for the Seattle expansion draft in a couple of years, I'm sure that they'll probably change the rules up a little bit. If not, I don't believe they'll go on a run like Vegas did this year. There were too many things that just happened to go well and work for them, it'll be tough to replicate that.
  3. By the looks of the caption this was posted when all the teams had clinched a playoff spot, but before they knew who their opponents were.
  4. Is this the DC version of the Guardian Project?
  5. I don't see how that would be an issue for them. I know Vegas wore their whites a couple of times at home this season.

    2018-19 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    I liked them until I noticed the old primary logos on the sleeve. They just look very out of place there.

    PyeongChang 2018

    USA loses to Slovenia and OAR loses to Slovakia, both in close games. Sure it's not as good without the best of the best there, but the Men's hockey tournament might be very entertaining this year. Any other year, these would be either blow outs or there would be a clear winner halfway through.

    Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I've seen that with many of their games, with around 1/3 of the fans there being road fans. The only time I've seen less was the game I went to when I was down there, but the Coyotes still had all 27 of their fans make the trip up.

    PyeongChang 2018

    I doubt it, especially since the Olympics don't interfere with the NBA season the same way they did with the NHL.

    Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I believe the previous post was in its own thread earlier. They were trying to post their stat predictions for 2018-19. Doesn't really matter now since he's already been banned after 2 days. I'm just surprised he got banned for offensive statements when nobody can understand what the hell he's trying to say.

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Not likely in Seattle's case since the Thunderbirds play in Kent (which is 20 Miles south of Downtown Seattle) and from what I've heard have developed a solid following since moving there from the city. It would probably be a concern if they still played at Key Arena. They also have the Everett Silvertips 30 miles to the north of downtown too.

    2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Speaking of exciting if this were 2012....

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Not unless they get approval from London on the name, since they hold the trademark in Canada. I'm betting they'll just use the Sand Knights trademark that they already have from a while back.

    NHL in Houston

    The Panthers, Hurricanes and the Coyotes were the exemptions to what I was saying. Aside from attendance spikes during playoff runs or new arenas, they've never really been successful. When it comes to growing the game more in traditional markets, I personally don't believe there are a lot of failures there at the moment (I consider a failure consistently drawing below an average of 16,000, unless you're Winnipeg since they can't draw that due to arena capacity). Most of the ones that do exist are due to either arena issues (Islanders) or consistent mediocrity (Blue Jackets), but overall nothing to cause major concern yet (depending on if the Islanders get their new arena or not). As for being #1 or #2 in their city, that's something that will never happen for many teams, regardless of how successful they are because of the popularity of the NFL, NBA, and MLB in the US. I honestly wouldn't even be shocked to see it on the same level as the MLS in a decade or so due to the recent growth of that league.
