Golden Knights Coaching Candidates With The Most To Gain/Lose


Pair Of Golden Knights Prospects Collecting Trophies In QMJHL


  1. Original 6 ✅

    My first stanley cup i went to was 1971 Hawks vs Habs. I’ve seen the most brutal sport in my opinion with some of the most vicious retaliation and was excepted in the sport & still allows fighting ! How long have you been watching hockey cuz i think your soft! Your comment on Q &!thinking Any knights fans gives a rat ass on that especially when it it was McDonough who should of ended it Not the 3rd guy in line that was going into Finals for the first time in 50 years & who was your team before the knights became an expansion?

  2. Mike StG

    Agree on bringing Stastny back on a 1 or 2 year value deal. There’s a reasonable chance Roy gets an offer sheet and moves on, and if not he’s a perfect 4C. Paul is the smartest guy on the ice, a great playmaker, good net front, and a mentor to younger forwards. A reconstituted line of Pauly, Stone & Patch would be great. That plus a new line with Eichel at C would be a tremendous top 6.

    Would also provide a lot of options for assembling an Eichel line that clicks. Could keep Karlsson as 3C and Stevie probably goes on Eichel’s wing.

    • knights fan in minny

      stats had 20 goals this year i dont know roy personnally but i think he would stay gut feeling but money does crazy things

    • Roy is as good as gone he average .5 points a game and there is no way VGK can afford to pay between 3 and 3.5 million to play 3rd or 4th line.

  3. Galdom

    Original 6. People who act tough commenting on a blog sound like pussies to me.

    • THE hockey GOD

      yeah galdom well well well, umm umm um um um

      you wanna step out side and discuss this?



      where’s the cotton you mutton head !

      • knights fan in minny

        king cotton ball has spoke again all bow down now he thinks he is a tough guy to much time in front of the mirror with his only friend

        • THE hockey GOD

          really minny, you don’t get it at all, post when way over your head as usual.

      • knights fan in minny

        why are you calling galdom a mutton head because your the king of the posters

        • THE hockey GOD

          i am not calling him a mutton head you moron. like i said the post went completely over your head

          • knights fan in minny

            your non hockey babble goes over everyones head but your the king of this site so were suppose to take as golden

          • THE hockey GOD

            your the incoherent one, take your insults elsewhere.
            clueless as usual

  4. ulf

    Love most of the answers (not sure about the Stastny one, but otherwise all good) – except this one

    “But the real answer is eat. We have the best restaurant scene in the world both on and off the Strip.”

    The WORLD? Really? I mean, Vegas is fun and all but I’m not sure you’ve been anywhere else in the world yet. Unless you’re using “World” the same way MLB uses it in “World Series” (really best in the USA). Even then I’d say New York and LA beat Vegas hands down (and maybe other places as well) but then you’ve got London, Paris, Montréal, Copenhagen, Berlin…and those are just places I’ve been off the top of my head that had stellar restaurants way above Vegas.

    • THE hockey GOD

      new york and Italy yes

      LA , london , no/

      unless you like tacos / beans and yes boiled mutton !!!

      the others ?? idk

      • Ulf

        After living in the UK for 3 years I can tell you wiyh confidence London’s restaurant options are world class -don’t buy into the stereotype of English food. And LA restaurants? Hell yes.
        Italy does indeed have fabulous restaurants and the Naples pizza is to die for (a reason it’s UNESCO protected) but I found the range of options less there than in other countries – although with so much good pizza; pasta and fish you might ask why you’d want other options I suppose 🙂

        • THE hockey GOD

          If you say so. Naples pizza is no more than crap on a cracker in my opinion. And Americans invented the real pizza, not this crap on a cracker stuff with lumps of buffalo cheese. Sicilian “pizza” is the best though. I rate it a 9.5 out of ten. Napolean style about 1.5 out of 10.

          • ulf

            The rest of the world would have an issue with the statement “Americans invented the real pizza” since Napoli-style pizza is most popular around the world.
            I do dig the Chicago Deep-Dish from time to time, guilty pleasure.

    this is something that will never happen in VEGAS !

    Johnny Gaudreau will be looking to cash-in after scoring a career-high 115 points to lead the Calgary Flames this season.

    Some fans will do anything to keep their favourite players in town.

    During the Calgary Flames’ end-of-year media availability on Saturday, star forward and impending unrestricted free agent Johnny Gaudreau spoke about the upcoming offseason and the difficult decisions that face him.

    Gaudreau had nothing but good things to say about Calgary, expressing his desire to stay in Alberta and try to bring the organization a long-awaited championship.

    • knights fan in minny

      okay elliot friedman your word is golden what you say goes

    • Original 6✅

      @The hockey God. Blackhawks Nation posted that it seems like Trotz has deal in place if so Q would be only one left that can straighten out the FO mess and has 3 cups to back it up but i’m not sure if they Got the Balls to do it.

      • THE hockey GOD

        thanks O6

        Let’s see if Bettman lets Qman out of the dog house. Even if he does, he still has unfinished business in Florida.

  6. knights fan in minny

    what does johnny hockey have to do with this more babble from the cotton ball king

  7. Pistol Pete

    Pains me to see what Evander Kane has done in the playoffs: 12 G/3A in 12 games. To think of what him and Eichel (they played together in Buffalo) could have done down the stretch and into the postseason.

    Kane is way more controversial than Q imo.

    • Ulf

      Except Kane would never sign in Vegas (coach being one reason , world class Center options in EDM for another…)
      We can dream but not every player and coach in the world want to join the. VGK. At this moment especially.

      • Pistol Pete

        I would say DeBoer was dead against it even if Kane was interested. Not sure on Kane’s chemistry with Eichel at BUF. As for DeBoer he messed up down the stretch by not facing up to Lehner being disabled. If he was unable to face up to Kane’s talent, another body he needed down the stretch, it’s one more irony.

        • Mike StG

          Vegas would never have signed Kane. The fan base absolutely hated him, he’s a jackass and a gambling addict. He stiffed one of the major casino groups for $1.5M in markers he never paid. Might be MGM, who owns TMA.

          Plus with all his baggage and SJS players who didn’t want to play with him, his missing practices because presumably he didn’t need it… who needs that crap?

          There’s no guarantee he would have been nearly as productive in Vegas as he has playing with Connor and Leon nightly.

          • Pistol Pete

            As I said more controversial than Q and by a long shot (I would hope as I don’t personally find Q to be very controversial as I have implied ad nauseum). I agree Kane’s performance at EDM does not guarantee the same in Vegas. Still though 10 gets you 1 they make the postseason with him on Eichel’s line. I would agree it was too controversial to bring him here so not sure why I even visit the matter (again). Just the irony of what could have been I guess.

            Btw watch Kane’s behavior improve. I’m a big fan of second chances.

          • THE hockey GOD

            “He stiffed one of the major casino groups for $1.5M in markers he never paid”

            translation >> “Tony the Ant” would have gone all Luca Bracci on him. He wouldn’t have lasted a week before he would be reported as “sleeping with the sand wurms” somewhere between Blue Diamond, Pahrump, and Scotty’s Castle.

          • Pistol Pete

            Pretty sure it was Cosmo, now operated by MGM Resorts.

        • THE hockey GOD

          don’t drink the kool aid

          ” As for DeBoer he messed up down the stretch by not facing up to Lehner being disabled. ”

          Coaches are not the on the hook when 1) a player says he’s good to go and says he can play and 2) the medical/training staff says the player is good to go 3) NHL protocol says he’s good to go.

          Ask the player, ask the medical training staff, and finally check the NHL protocol. This RL so called, mob media fueled BS, is not on the coach. There are layers and layers before the coach makes the call.

          • Pistol Pete

            I agree ThG for starting him when he came back from the 3 week injury lay-off. What I have a problem with is fans noted Lehner did not appear 100% which proved to be true. It came to a head with the Devils—then we knew we were right. Still he started him for NYR and pulled him. Players can say they are good to go when they are not because to them they can get the job done injured. The coach has the authority to step in and say no. It’s a tough delicate call but it was the right move here. We know that in hindsight.

    • Original 6 ✅

      To Pustol Pete & The Hockey God. Blackhawks nation on twitter just posted it seems like Barry trotz has a deal in place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Makes Sense because they would give him more say so in picking players since Wirtz kid who replaced Bowman is GM and Toews & Kane in last year of contract will free up huge cap. and they traded Flower away as the oldest hawks & they r young team

      • Original 6✅

        sorry. Pistol Pete. on spelling error it 5:15 am. chicago time

        • Pistol Pete

          Np Original 6 and ty for the update. Narrows it down to Tocchet and Q, for me anyways. I was not all that keen on Trotz who may have been another too rigid on systems approach which can stifle offensive production for some players. We need a player’s coach who can unlock Eichel’s full potential, to name just one.

      • THE hockey GOD

        if so, O6 then Trotz has his work cut out for him. He must think that the Hawks are on verge of turning things around. And that organization is worse than anything the mob media can trump up for VGK reputation wise, He would be good for the face of the organization. But I fear he is one or two key players from turning things around.

        thanks for update O6

  8. Original 6✅

    it also seems like Tortorella. is headed to the fliers ! That would leave VGK slim pickings of coaches that i had possibly on a list. Now Who’s left to clean up FO mess. You know who i always wanted. !

  9. THE hockey GOD

    VGK still has Ryan Craig.

    Who is Ryan Craig ?

    Ryan F. Craig is a Canadian former professional ice hockey centre and current assistant coach with the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League. Prior to retirement, he was the captain of the Cleveland Monsters in the American Hockey League.

    Ryan Craig, Vegas Assistant Coach

    A veteran of 198 career NHL games and countless stops across junior and professional hockey, Ryan Craig didn’t have many elite skills to speak of, unless you count his drive and determination. Over the course of a career that began in Manitoba with the Brandon Wheat Kings all the way through to the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters, Craig sported a ‘C’ on his chest in no less than five stops during his career.

    That high level of character likely helped Craig secure an assistant role on the expansion Golden Knights and has probably helped him keep the job through a head coaching change. Of course, general manager Kelly McCrimmon may have also had something to do with Craig’s job security. The two go back to Craig’s days with the Wheat Kings, and no one truly knows what kind of person the 38-year-old is better than McCrimmon.

  10. THE hockey GOD

    THG experience with Ryan Craig. Every time I ran into RC personally was in the men’s room. It seem our urination cycles for some reason “line up”. After the third time, he recognized me. He was standing in stall next to me pissing away. I said “the water is a bit chilly today”. He started laughing and said “I can’t tell I lost all feeling because it’s covered in all the icy shit they put down in the urinal”. We both walked away laughing. Funny guy.

    Don’t be surprised if he gets the job. He’s been here since day one. He’s truly an original face of franchise.

    • Pistol Pete

      I prefer Tocchet. Not only does he have 6 years as a head coach, and as I implied in an earlier post that is like a break-in period nearly identical to Trotz’s first 6 years at NSH in W/L, but he was a such a freaking good NHL player, he brings something to the group a less prominent player has trouble bringing. Scotty Bowman was not a big NHL player, Q was so it does cut both ways as far as that aspect goes. Still, just Gallant was a really good NHL player and had some success here so can Tocchet or Q. As I mentioned earlier, Q just wins everywhere he goes and right away he’s such a good motivator and strategist.

    • knights fan in minny

      your sick who wants to here about your bathroom stories

      • THE hockey GOD

        minny, you are just jealous because you can not participate and would be unable to reach water or even ice level!!!! OH My, I apologize, I shouldn’t have said that.

        You aren’t even in VEGAS !!

        Take a chill pill, dude.

        Happy Mem day.

        • knights fan in minny

    • knights fan in minny

  11. Tim

    It’s already a done deal for better or worse Trotz is signed sealed and delivered to the Knights.

  12. THE hockey GOD

    Barry Trotz Reportedly Has Talked to the Detroit Red Wings

    Hockey Night In Canada’s Elliotte Friedman is reporting Barry Trotz had an interview with the Red Wings for their coaching position

    • knights fan in minny

      are you sure remember when you ragged on elliot and said he did not know anything

  13. Obvious

    Sure hope Trotz is not so desperate or stupid to even consider coming to Vegas and working under Fat Bastard and the other 2 clowns… McPh’d and 2 face foley

    Only person who would come here would be someone utterly desperate for work

  14. Obvious

    Vegas needs a coach like the rangers got. Took a team that never made the playoffs last year and now in the conference finals this year!!

    Just sayin….
