Success in the KHL doesn't always translate into NHL success so considering him the best forward is a little premature imo. Vegas has some pretty good forwards.

As for Theodore, it's mostly a numbers game and IIRC his contract allows him to be sent to the minors without having to clear waivers. Vegas is most likely showcasing the dmen they're shopping.

meh, I said arguably and I would still argue that he is probably their best center.

also, it's not like Vegas has come out and said it was a merit based demotion. They just signed the guy to a fairly expensive contract. It stinks of disorganization and bad management to me, though Arp is probably right, this will be forgotten in the long run and it probably doesn't really matter.

I maybe wrong but I donít think previous expansion drafts had quality players like Neal and Fleury?

Geoff Sanderson might be a good comparable for Neal.

I dont really know how much of these relocations are about attendance, or about ownership.
Attendance was down last night (which is why im guessing you asked) but thats pretty common for Carolina before the NFL season ends.

Plus, attendance would be a lot higher if this team was good, ie in the playoffs. Not enough of the fans trust the product, yet. Its been 10yrs since they sniffed a playoff game.
My bet? They make the playoffs, every game is a sellout, and next year attendance is up significantly if the playoffs dont leave a bad taste in their mouth. (ie swept away in 1st round)

I think King Henry is nearing the end. What do you think, John?

Ya I saw the attendance was 7000+. Apparently Houston wants a team.

Houston, really? I didn't know that one at all, wouldn't Seattle and Quebec come first?
Or is the NHL saving Sea+Que for $$$$ expansion fees I wonder.

I wasn’t aware of the rules change regarding unlimited offsides coaches challenges. It makes sense but I had no idea.
