As many of you may have heard, I have accepted a position with Vegas Hockey Now to cover the Golden Knights. One of the stipulations was I could not write for a compelling entity. Thus, my tenure at SinBin.vegas has come to an end.
When Ken approached me three years ago about writing a weekly column, I saw it as an opportunity to remain connected to the team and its fan base. But it ultimately became much more than that. I got to become good friends with Ken and Jason, who have put so much effort to launch and grow SinBin.vegas. I had a wonderful sponsor in Las Vegas attorney Jim Jimmerson. And I got to interact with a group of readers who are truly passionate about hockey in general and the Golden Knights in particular.
Yes, we may have disagreed from time to time, but I always appreciated the respect shown to me on this site as I wrote every Sunday. That meant a lot and was the main reason I continued to write for SinBin.
So while this may mean farewell, it does not mean goodbye. I will remain in Las Vegas. I will continue to write about the Golden Knights, only on a different platform. I invite all of you to check out my work at vegashockeynow.com and if you like what you see, we’d love to have you come on board as a subscriber.
Yes, vegashockeynow.com and SinBin.Vegas are technically competitors. But we are also friends and will remain friends. I believe it’s healthy to have different points of view and it helps the reader get more information.
So as I leave this space, allow me to say thank you. First, to Ken and Jason for having me as a colleague the last three years. You guys are awesome. My one regret was not appearing on more SinBin podcasts where Ken just lets ‘er rip and doesn’t hold back any punches.
Second, my thanks to attorney Jim Jimmerson for his sponsorship of my column. He is a good man, an excellent lawyer, and someone I consider a friend. Without his financial backing, there would not have been a column.
Finally, my biggest thanks goes to the readers. You folks are awesome. I admire your passion and dedication to hockey and the Golden Knights and you are the reason the NHL is working in Las Vegas. Your unwavering support of sites such as SinBin shows the world that this is indeed a great hockey town. Thank you again for your support of my work and your kind comments every week. I will always remember your appreciation that made this a great experience.
Enjoy the upcoming hockey season and I hope to hear from many of you in the days and weeks ahead in my new venture.

Good luck, Steve. Thanks for the great columns to read.
Will miss you Carp but, will not be reading your work at your new employer. That site is crazy to even look at. Take a page from this site with you on the simplicity of layouts that are enjoyable to read and not distracted by all the “stuff” on that site. Kudos to Ken and Jason for not selling out like VHN has. Sponsorship is one thing…but overdone on VHN.
Good luck to you and thanks for the articles on sin bin.

but this is not a compelling entity, so you can stay !!!

AND NO , getting eichel would be a mistake !!
McCrimmon admitted details leaked before the Golden Knights trade was official (and thus he had not yet called Fleury), he contradicted the perception that Fleury and his agent Allan Walsh were blindsided. McCrimmon specifically detailed dates of conversations, including July 12 when he informed Fleury that Chicago was interested.
“It was more important for me to be open and transparent with Marc-Andre than any potential risks there might be by making that circle (of information) bigger than what you might ordinarily,” McCrimmon said. “I’m really comfortable with the way we chose to do it, and it was a conscious decision I made immediately following the season.”
“…As a team, you can’t speak to things or announce moves that your team has made until they’re final…We can’t contact a player and tell that player he’s been traded if we haven’t completed a trade call…” translation >> Fleury’s agent Welsh is a dirt bag. But we all already knew that from his prior cartoons.
Good riddance. The Colorado Hockey Now has that assclown Adrian Dater, a total newspaper hack who hasn’t a clue about hockey. Now the Vegas version can get the same with this clueless Carp.
