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.
