    Thus, this is a guess at the lines today (definitely wouldn't say this is confirmed)
    Pacioretty-Stephenson-Stone
    Marchessault-Karlsson-Smith
    Krebs-Patrick-Dadonov
    Dorofeyev-Kolesar-Coghlan
    Martinez-Pietrangelo
    McNabb-Theodore
    Hague-Whitecloud
    Lehner
    Brossoit

    The Golden Knights and NHL hope the pandemic’s impact on this season will be smaller than the previous two. But there are still a lot of unknowns as training camps open this week.

    From fan favorites returning to holiday games and rivalries renewed, the Golden Knights’ fifth season should have something for everyone, including an Olympic break.

    At the season’s halfway point, Mark Stone and Marc-Andre Fleury are among several Knights in contention for end-of-season awards.

    And we think we have cap issues!

    https://twitter.com/PuckPedia/status...56841596551168

    The #VegasBorn opening roster includes 20 Players & unique 13F/5D/2G. This roster is $227K Projected Under the Cap. If player is injured & they play 1 game w/ <20 (or 0 games if out due to COVID), can Emerg Recall player w/ Cap Hit <$1M & exceed cap.

    we had other commitments on Saturday so we could not arrange to be there for the Isles game.


    Some massive home court advantages for Vegas:

    * First pro sports team in the market
    * Weather year round = can create a game day experience outside the arena that is just awesome
    * If the team sucks - the visting team fans can lap up the excess tix
    * Brand new building that seems very inviting - I sat in Section 18 - but my incomplete eval is that the seats up top seemed closer to ice than say Chicago or LA buildings which are HUGE

    If Malkin and Ledecky are building a building like this - that could be a great thing for us.

    A beer was 16 bucks.

    the food choices inside and outside the building is not rivaled

    There was a pep rally in front with great looking cheer squad and a DJ (Vegas!) and it whipped up the crowd. Inside - they have a ton of cheerleaders and rally squads and that marching band. The pre-game entertainment is pure Vegas. It would be so attractive to casual fans - without pissing off all but the holier - than - thou Original Six fan

    Sight lines were terrific

    Music was 3x as loud as most buildings ( could be a negative)

    Announcer was annoying with regard to announcing goals super loud and the "NE ENERGY POWER PLAY" during play which I could tell - distracted the Caps.

    They have a DJ in the "Tower" who runs the show and all that.

    The game is the game. Once the puck drops - it's up to the players to play well.

    we thought it was one of the best games I have been to in a while - and I get to go to a lot of good games.

    we heard that the Caps suffered from Vegas flu. The fans were real nice - we sat with Vegas season ticket holders. One works for the gaming industry and said the Caps lit it up the night before - says that some of the teams just let them go - figuring that it's just one game - but some teams stay in Henderson or some other place to avoid the Strip.

    we were helping another fan plan her trip to see a few NHL games - she is new to Hockey but said she has attended every game the past two years and we invited her to the Coliseum next year with her husband as- they asked " What are the old historic buildings" to see before they go. we told them - that functionally there are none left besides Nassau. Isn't like Anaheim or Colorado the oldest building now?

    They had about 10 % of the crowd as Caps fans - partly because it's hard to get tix - but a lot traveled to see Ovi get 700

    Our recommendation - get to a game in Vegas if you can. Great experience.
    Great report. I enjoyed reading it. Funny you mentioned the PA guy. Last game I noticed he talked for a full 20 seconds in to the PP just to tell the fans the Knights were on a PP. The NHL should put a stop to that.
