Best NHL expansion team ever?: Vegas might have the cards

Models unveil the Vegas Golden Knights new hockey jersey Tuesday It's Official: Vegas selects Blues' Perron in expansion draft

But Wednesday night, Fleury found himself a new team - and a new city.

Here's the thing that maybe wasn't clear from the beginning: Not only were the Vegas Golden Knights getting to poach one player off every roster, they were also getting compensation (mostly draft picks) from the other 30 clubs in order to direct who they chose. The 29-year-old forward, nicknamed The Real Deal, has scored more than 20 goals in all nine seasons of his National Hockey League career. "I was a little surprised by that". Making those agreements got Vegas forward prospect Alex Tuch from the Wild, defenseman Shea Theodore from the Ducks, unsigned forward prospect Nikita Gusev from the Lightning and the 15th pick and defensive prospect Jake Bischoff from NY.

Fleury, you are an incredible netminder, prankster, teammate, and an even better person. Names like Petr Mrazek, Philipp Grubauer, and Michal Neuvirth all could've been grabbed as long-term options, yet Vegas went with the 32-year-old Fleury. Vegas's public threats to other teams meant the team might as well have been called the Vegas Mob, and some of the picks came with future assets attached, which is what any expansion team needs more than anything.

They won't be a threat to win the Pacific Division in the inaugural season, but they've got a chance to build something special. Injury kept him from the beginning of the 2016 playoffs, allowing rookie Matt Murray to step in and start 21 of 24 games. Without Fleury's stellar play, the Penguins nearly certainly don't hoist the Cup. "I got drafted in Nashville, played my last game (in a Pittsburgh uniform) in Nashville".

"He handles himself so well on and off the ice", Fleury said of Crosby.

"I believe we put together a great team from the net out", Golden Knights owner Bill Foley said after participating in his first Board of Governors meeting. Right now our plan is to try to draft three players.


He and his wife, Veronique, are planning on going house-hunting in the next couple of days.

Las Vegas officially has their first professional sports franchise with the conclusion of the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion draft.

"It's good to get a deal done", Engelland said. "He's incredible, top notch in every aspect. I played with some great guys". "I could never say anything bad about that guy".

On Wednesday evening, in conjunction with the NHL's annual awards gala, the Golden Knights filled out their roster as part of the first expansion draft in 17 years. Grabovski, also 33, has one year and $5 million remaining on his contract and has not played since 2015-16 because of a concussion.

If a rival GM wanted to protect a player - his choices were send Vegas a younger player such as Anaheim blueliner Shea Theodore or pass over draft picks. Not only to come back to St. Louis, but it was a different feeling this time around. At the very least, it won't be like watching the Ottawa Senators go 10-70-4 in their expansion year. It's tough to see him leave. I don't think that he felt comfortable putting a list out there. "As far as a year ago, I loved my time for many reasons". With prospects such as Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine coming out of the last two drafts, it is hard to get excited about this upcoming draft class.

On the hierarchy of goaltender performance graphed earlier, we had Fleury as the 15th best stopper in the league on a rate basis. "I've always had Sid to step behind". "Especially here, maybe hockey's not the most known sport". Calvin Pickard from Colorado and Jean-Francois Berube from the New York Islanders are only 25, and each one could be Fleury's backup or trade bait.
