    I understood, and I'm hearing that the expansion draft will work the same way - number of protected at positions, etc.

    Tough to charge Seattle an extra $100MM for a lesser initial deal than what Vegas got. The GMs will be unhappy, but the owners will cash $20 MM cheques each, so they'll do it.

    And while it was a better deal than past expansions, I think the management and players in Vegas deserve a lot of credit. They did a great job, no matter what happens from here on out.

    Indeed, yes. There is not a better announcer in any sport today.

    Las Vegas has really embraced their team. Of course, it’s a lot easier to do that when they are playing at a historic level for an expansion team. Tickets for each game of the playoffs are the hottest tickets in town. Go Knights!

    The Vegas Golden Knights have made the Stanley Cup Finals in their first year as an expansion team.

    imo this is now the sports story of the year, an incredible achievement.

    VGK lost the Stanley Cup but won the hearts of locals and even some fans who live elsewhere.

    Here's the story:

    In other Vegas pro sports news, the Vegas Aces (WNBA) started playing this Summer. Although they aren't winning most games yet, they're coming together and have won the last two. They are a lot of fun to watch (I have season tickets) and because it's Vegas the half time shows are pretty amazing too. Tickets are not expensive (unlike the hockey games) and it's very family-friendly. The crowd is fun and energetic but not insane like the VGK crowds. Also home games are aired on the same channel as the Knights games were aired if you want to stay home or watch at a local bar/restaurant.

    Details here: http://aces.wnba.com/
