No doubt this Vegas team is the story of the year in the NHL...expansion team legit fighting to be first place in the NHL with only about 30 games left is unbelievable.
Bettman said that Seattle will get the same expansion draft rules when they join the league.  Will be interesting to see how the perform, compare do Vegas.

The best expansion team in NHL in the modern era has been the 1993 Florida Panthers who finished 33-34-17 (0.494).  The worst expansion team in NHL in the modern era has been the 1974 Washington Capitals who finished 8-67-5 (0.131).

The fact that there has never been an expansion team finish above 0.500, makes Vegas even more unbelievable.

It's fun to go back and read the thread from the beginning. I wonder if they will make it out of Pacific, though?

Who am I kidding, it's the same question over and over and Vegas keeps answering.

Without question. While I expected the Knights to win this series (the Kings are pretty lousy), I didn't expect a sweep.

Unbelievable....VGK moving on in the playoffs.  They have a legit shot at winning it all.  They will be a tough opponent.

For sure. They have ZERO pressure on them since they've already done way better than anyone thought they would.

lol so at the beginning of this thread, we obviously all expected them to finish last. Now, we are playing them in the WCF. Wow, haha.

Bold. I like it. Tall order and they'll need to be at their absolute best to dispatch the Knights in 5.

This Vegas team is just confounding. I'll say the Jet's in 6 because I just think they're better. But they better be ready for a huge battle once again, because that's what they will get.

I look at tonights game and think jets in 4!!

We didn?t play that great and yet I never felt threatened like in the Nashville series.

It?s only 1 game, but the jets can and will play much better,  Vegas is in over their heads on this one.
