February Is More Than A Light Schedule For VGK




  1. THE hockey GOD

    if they trade players now before the playoff begins it would be a drastic change from last years business plan; and it will end up in failure for the franchise.

    The greater Phoenix area has more than twice the population of Vegas valley; their hockey franchise is in big trouble.

    Can anyone say HELLO VAGINA, I mean REGInA ???? That is in Canada for you “unsophisticated” “hockey” “fans”. Not something under your underwear.

    almost ?? not quite

    Jack Eichel C, Vegas Golden Knights
    Jack Eichel (neck) was sporting a regular jersey during Monday’s practice after being cleared for contact.

    “He’s been cleared for contact,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “That’s the first day of full contact he’s had, is it 17 or 18 months or something like that? So now it’s a matter of, how does he respond? Do a little bit more the next day, a little bit more the next day. Hope for no setbacks. He feels great right now in talking to him. He’s excited. I don’t know what the timeline will be, but at least the process has started.” There have been some whispers that he could be available to play in about a week if everything goes smoothly. Eichel hasn’t played yet this season, but he appears to be closing on his Vegas debut. He skated on the fifth line Monday, while rotating in for some power-play work.

    The fifth line ? Didn’t know they had a fifth line.

      i hear ya, most players that get paid the big bucks for the first time feel the pressure regardless of situation and it takes awhile for it to sink in. Some never make it. I lost count of baseball players that hit the jack pot and where never heard from again, ever. It’s like they are jinxed as soon as the cash the check.

        were, not where.

        and certainly not under where or were or there or wear. English is a funny language.

    Implode the opposition city in the opening!

  5. Mike Johnson

    How long has Alex Martinez been IR. Is he on LTIR yet ? If not, how long before this kicks in. What $ difference between IR and LTIR amount. This us to help us calculate what amount we need to trade before Eichel can play.

  6. Bryce Alberts

    My two cents; trade Patch, Martinez, and Dadonoff to get under the cap with Eichel. Get draft picks for all of them as we have the talent in Henderson or coming from our picks to keep us going for years to come!
