Day 1 of free agency is open and the Golden Knights were active. A couple trades (including a one big one), a couple re-signings, and a new backup goalie. But, are the Golden Knights really that much better today than yesterday? Hosted by Ken Boehlke and Jason Pothier.

Just listened to your podcast. Lots of good points, as usual. I particularly appreciated your emphasis on how Bill Foley’s capitulation to his FO indicated a lack of honor and loyalty on his part. However, I had the sense (tho you can correct me if I’m wrong), that you might be inclined to say it is all worth it if the team wins the Cup next season. In my mind, no prize is worth exhibiting dishonor and disloyalty, which is exactly what the Knights displayed in their dealings with Fleury. The motto of West Point begins “duty, honor…..” I don’t expect McPhee or McCrimmon to understand this, but I did have higher hopes for Mr. Foley. I guess I was wrong.
Spot on Miri. It’s one thing to pay lip service to values, but another to display them in crunch time.
I lived in Vegas for many years up until the week before the 1st ever game. That first team (and coach) were so likeable. However, the team and franchise has become dislikable over time, to the point where I have swung over to the team in the city I moved to.
Patch/Eichel/Stone. That would be some kind of line.
It’s too bad all those nice parting comments were not made to Fleury immediately after the deal was consummated, however it was made out of necessity for one reason and one reason only. To clear $7m cap. Had to be done and there is no doubt in my mind that Fleury was more or less privy to it as it was going down.
They are not better today than they were last week. The front office just sent a good team with great chemistry to hell as they placed a huge wager on a number on the roulette wheel.
