    Guess he ain't coming to LI
    Marc-Andre Fleury, the Canadian goaltender who backstopped the first-year Vegas Golden Knights on an unlikely run to the National Hockey League Final, agreed to terms Friday on a three-year contract extention. The 33-year-old goalie was a member of three Stanley Cup champion squads with the Pittsburgh

    Well said. I felt the same way. I didn't appreciate the selection process, I felt it gave the Knights too much of an advantage.
    Justin Bourne's article in The Athletic about McPhee built the team was very interesting. He also talked about how neither the coaching staff nor the front office were beholding to favorites because there weren't really any. He said it was a plan all the other teams should follow.

    We complain about that stuff all the time from Ladd's and Clutterbuck's contracts to playing guy like Strait and Chimera non-stop over potentially or already better players.

    All you had to do is look at Ovie and the Capital fans to know that this is how the Cup is supposed to be won. Years of frustration and tears finally culminating with putting that Cup high over your head. Vegas fans would have had zero appreciation for this and would have just thought. Hey that was pretty cool. In my eyes the Lore of Stanley has been preserved with the Caps winning.

    Now with saying that I was one of Vegas's biggest fans. I posted about them often throughout the year as to why they were winning. EFFORT. I watched many Knight regular season games and they were a joy to watch. A fun team to watch. An exciting team to watch!

    Vegas fans now know some heart break of trying to win Lord Stanley. They may not return to the finals for another 30 years? Who knows but at least now the fans get it or they soon will get it when they realize just how hard this Cup is supposed to be to win.

    Great job Caps Great job Knights

    The right team won!

    While we were here in Vegas, so many uber drivers were talking to us about the Knights. It's really taken over here. And most mentioned there was one team they couldn't beat. Some knew the team, some didn't, bur none of them knew we are Islanders until after they said.

    Small positive, but positive nonetheless.

    So sad lol. There is a lot of irony here. I have been so frustrated with expansion teams and it started as far back as I can remember but those memories take me to when Ottawa came in to the league. We the Islanders have never been able to beat expansion teams. For one reason we usually suck when they all came in to the league but still none the less everyone else beat up on them but we never could.

    Now for the first time in my memory the rest of the league can't beat an expansion team but we can....................so go figure. It is a nice change!
    I think it's because they don't suck, so we don't play down to them.

    They aren't doing well against teams wearing blue and orange.

    Just goes to show you what hard work and some good coaching can do.............might as well throw the GM in on this statement as well.
