Canes lose Brickley to Vegas in National Hockey League expansion draft

Lucia Summers | 22 June, 2017, 07:22

"We're not afraid to try something a little different".

A few players that raise some eyebrows that could possibly be playing for the Las Vegas Golden Knights are, Sami Vatanen, Bobby Ryan, James Neal and Mathew Dumba. The change, which was made due to the NHL's witch to Adidas, resulted in some slight changes across the board, but nothing too dramatic.

Wolves general manager Wendell Young sat in his office this week staring at an empty whiteboard normally filled with moveable magnets containing the names of players who will factor into the upcoming season's roster. "We build products for the creator athlete".

The Coyotes announced Wednesday that their October 7 home opener will have them pitted against the Vegas Golden Knights, with puck drop slated for 6 p.m.

For starters, he's a big fan of analytics and advanced metrics, telling the Golden Knights official team site recently: "It's remarkable some of the things that data can clarify for you".

The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins will raise another banner and begin their quest for a three-peat October 4 against the St. Louis Blues.

Also named as the Sharks team MVP as chosen by the local media, as well as the Fan Favorite award this season, Burns signed an eight-year, $64 million contract extension with the Sharks on November 22, 2016 that kicks in next season. He's not a point producer, but brings steady defensive play and experience to whoever will be his new team. "We think it's going to be a lot of fun for our fans, particularly those here in Las Vegas". The addition of 10 teams in the past 26 years has also evened out the player field, creating a situation where the bottom 6-8 players on almost every team are virtually interchangeable from a skills perspective. There were only 24 seasons total above zero. He averaged 20:20 of ice time per night, good for the third highest mark on the team. Fleury fits the bill as he's scheduled to make $5,750,000 during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons according to Capfriendly.com.

But for every decent team, there's also a Columbus, Atlanta or Tampa Bay, wallowing in futility for a almost a decade or more.

Billups has no previous experience as an National Basketball Association executive, but he does have a long-standing relationship with Gilbert from their time together in Detroit and he knows the league well.

Defensemen Alexei Emelin, Marc Methot, Colin Miller, Griffin Reinhart and David Schlemko were all picked by the Golden Knights, along with forwards Brendan Leipsic, Oscar Lindberg and David Perron. He's seen for himself how hard it's been for new teams to be competitive.

The turmoil in Cleveland's front office came days before Thursday's draft and as the Cavs launched plans to retool their roster after being dethroned as champions in five games by the Golden State Warriors. Even if the Golden Knights do all that and find themselves with a good team, the next step toward a Cup will be an even bigger one - one many existing teams already struggle with.

"I had the chance to play my first game and score my first goal". Just don't expect a Stanley Cup.
