2. Why Logan Thompson Should Start More

The Vegas Golden Knights should consider starting Logan Thompson more because Hill regressed to the mean. While Thompson had an absolute dud of a game against the Buffalo Sabres on March 2nd, the 27-year-old has been good for the Golden Knights in his other three starts. That includes a shutout against the San Jose Sharks, where he stopped 29 shots.

Yes, one Logan Thompson hater might say the following:

"It's the San Jose Sharks! They stink!"

Still, when Adin Hill is off his game and the other goaltender has something to prove, it's something to consider. People forget that Logan Thompson had a good month of January. Yes, he was pretty lowly in December. However, the former Brandon Wheat King has rebounded nicely, making incredible saves and winning games for the Vegas Golden Knights.
