Life’s good for Vegas hockey fans. They’re atop the Pacific Division, they’re the reigning Stanley Cup champions, and they’re winning games. If you’re in Sin City, you can’t complain. That is unless you’re a Raiders fan.
However, good things aren’t meant to last forever. Eventually, a newcomer will step in and challenge Vegas for the division. That’s why they play the game of hockey. In case you’re wondering, three teams pose a threat to the Golden Knights in the Pacific. For the record, the San Jose Sharks are NOT one of those teams in the NHL.
In fact, you can say that the Sharks don’t scare anybody. It took San Jose 11 games just to get their first win. 11 games! That’s as bad as the Detroit Pistons going without a win for the entire month of November. Let’s call the Sharks for who they are: the Detroit Pistons of the NHL.
So who are these mystery teams that might give Vegas fits? What do these teams bring to the table that causes some concern for hockey fans in Sin City? How can the Golden Knights counter these teams and strengthen their grip on the Pacific Division?
