Vegas: Second exit of the American Cinderella to the public

What in a new season the sensational finalist of the last Stanley Cup - Vegas will please admirers with.


Vegas is obliged to make a noise in the forthcoming season. At least surely to get to the playoffs in very difficult in every respect - from logistics to power style - the Western Conference. It, perhaps, sounds very optimistically. But the last year's fairy tale is still too fresh in memory. In this regard it is impossible to treat to team with indulgence and to consider her debut performance miracle of one season.

on protection don't reach a cup-final of Stanley. Of course, during the summer something could change in the heads of players, many of which have for the first time felt people of the premium in NHL. Perhaps, losses in structure will affect, after all experience of the left David Perron and James Neil played an important role. For team where, except the main goalkeeper Mark-Andra Fleri, nobody laid claim to the top player, it is the serious changes capable to break balance in collective. Nobody also knows how the management and hockey players of "Gold Knights" will cope with test by glory when they a slogan "outcast the whole world prove the right among equal" will stop being to work.

nevertheless would Be silly something sharply to change and be engaged in stage-by-stage construction of the applicant as it is done by other teams rising from a bottom. To Vegas by the standards of NHL a very short time, and the club already lives in the spirit of a rock star by the principle "it is necessary to enjoy life to the full here and now". The general manager George McPhee who had before last season in the head the three-year plan has sent all to hell and behaves just as those years when he tried to bring Washington to the Stanley Cup. Then it has been doomed by

to regularly to give elections on a draft and perspective youth in a pursuit of momentary strengthening. McPhee has spent present off-season aggressively though he first of all tried to offset losses. On paper at him everything has turned out nicely. Among free agents he has caught Paul Shtyastna - the most valuable center forward in the market, except for John Tavares. This already solid line in team became even stronger. Even if the overpayment takes place, 6,5 million dollars during the season are a decent sum, then three-year term leaves the place for maneuver if at Shtyastna something goes in team not so.

With his arrival can send quietly Finn Eric Haula to the flank of attack and to enter into the main structure of 19-year talent of Cody Glass. The junior for a start should prove well in the training camp. The attacking line where has completely remained the excellent first three of Marshesso - Carlson - Smith, looks balanced, angry and skilled at the same time.

Long time went persistent rumors that Vegas is ready to give half-kingdoms for the defender of Ottawa Eric Carlson. Compensation offered San Jose was more interesting therefore "Gold Knights" were left without superstar. As a consolation prize of McPhee has got saves
