Bravo, Vegas Golden Knights social media person. They may not do much for an expansion team but at least their social media game is on point.

Was originally coming in here to post about my displeasure with the Wings for resigning GM Ken Holland to a two-year extension (insert gif of confused girl/Vader "No"/Michael Scott "NOOOOOOOOOOO" here), but saw that our last posts were about the Vegas Knights...wow were we way off.

Go from being an expansion squad to being my pick to make the Cup Final (against Tampa Bay, FYI). Good for them.

yea, we were!
Although, I think on one of your top five lists I picked the Knights making the playoffs. That means I can be on ESPN right?  :)

Impressive...Vegas Knights recorded their first playoff series victory in team history before recording their first playoff game loss. Starting to think them and Winnipeg are on a collision course for the conference final.

Conference final predictions: Winnipeg in 7, Tampa Bay in 6.

Poor Caps...finally get past their nemesis in Pittsburgh only to run into a well balanced Bolts squad.

It's supposed to be a bit of a parody, but while there are a couple of things in this video I disagree with this is a pretty accurate description of why the Wings have fallen.

Just like I predicted  :P
Not even going to bother with picking a winner in the Final here because none of this makes sense anymore haha

That game was fun, and I would be completely happy with 6 more games of this. Caps need to figure out how to handle Vegas' speed...they just play fast really well.

It took the Washington Capitals until 2018 to win their first Stanley Cup Final game...they liked the feeling so much they just decided to win three more to claim the Stanley Cup. Clock strikes midnight on the Golden Knights in a finish that, while it may be disappointing, shouldn't diminish the accomplishments of one amazing season for them.

But I'm happy for Ovechkin and the Capitals, though...some definite parallels between this Caps team and the 1997 Wings Cup team, overcoming adversity and all the doubts to finally lift the best trophy in sports.

Was able to see this interview live on the CBC feed a few minutes ago...damn I need to dust my living room, got some dust in my eyes during that.
