Just me.... I like Nosek and got to watch him play for the griffins. He should do pretty good for Vegas.

Getting out of contracts like the Howard, Mrazek, Ericcsson, Helm, Abdelkader, Kronwal, Nielson, Nyquist, Sheahan, Etc. should be a top priority this off season.

It's gonna be a hard watch the next few years in our fancy new stadium with jacked up ticket prices...

I Totally agree, and I'm at the point of jumping on the wagon to remove Holland from the Wings association.

well, without having to follow it, consider this.

The expansion draft basically said protect X number of players, the rest are free to be chosen by the new Vegas team. (I think they got 1 player from each NHL team)

We protected a few players, and they chose one of our minor league players. What does that say about the other x number of guys we didn't protect and their contracts?

To me it says, none of those players have any trade value because of bad cotracts and or bad play, and or a combination of both. If an expansion team didn't want any of our players, why would any of the established teams want any of them?

We have a bunch of bad players, bad contracts, and ZERO trade bait except for our few good players.

We're in rough shape.

Ohh......the general sports media apparently doesn't like Holland's draft picks:
