Dear Golden Knights,

Lehtera is wonderful and i would be crushed if you pick him.

No doubting going on, it was more about seeing different ways that VGN could approach this. Clearly they want him as the face of their franchise, and he will be great for that. He is the only true starter of the three goalies chosen.

Fleury was very popular out here, but they freed up big Cap space.

What do you think of the Vegas roster ? Some say it ain't half bad ?

Having two true starters is always a challenge, not just from the cost viewpoint. Fleury will be perfect for a few seasons, allowing VGN to get established.


I am not too certain it is appropriate for me to judge their efforts, or roster. That said, I do have a few general comments. There are a few players they now own that will never play a game for them. I expect some trades in the next few days (during the draft) and I was surprised that VGN didn't take certain players to flip for more picks (perhaps they explored that and found little interest). I was also surprised that they only took three goalies, shocked actually, especially when you look at who was unprotected.

Chicago is going to be interesting, both in actual picks, and in opportunities being put out there. Berg has a plan, but has competition, hoping it goes well for us.

So in short, they get the Pens Number 2 goalie and it makes national headlines and he is THE pick of the expansion.

The Montreal player, no one cares about.

Sounds about right.

Raanta is the better goalie long term, Fleury is the perfect choice for marketing.

Emelin will bring some solid hitting, and was who we were led to believe they would be taking. The choice is not earth quaking, as he is third pairing defence on that team.
