I'm genuinely curious how their fanbase will react if they miss the playoffs. We will find out if they're bandwagoners or they're true fans.


I am personally very fearful of what will happen when the Golden Knights' contention is over. The Cinderella run brought in way more fans than is sustainable, and I think ownership is in for a rough ride once the likes of Stone, Pietrangelo, and Lehner start to decline in value

I remember when in 2020 when McDavid and Sam Gagner and Chiasson as his wingers and know he as Hyman and Kane as his wingers, you can't argue that Holland hasn't upgraded the Oilers forward core


I don't think the forward core has been the issue. Rather the depth, defense and goalies have been very subpar.

Can't call it a cup drought when you've never won anything

the forward has been a issue in the past, they needed top 9 wingers and the depth is way better then is was 2 season ago

They had a Cinderella run then proceeded to get beat by 2 Cinderella runs in back to back years

Kind of funny if you think about it lul

Honestly, if they can take care of the first round in the playoffs and Koskinen doesn't melt down I could see them contending.

That team can be lethal if they want to.

Roman Josi in pace for 102 points this year.

Would be the first D-man to score over 100 points since Paul Coffey in 1990.

And still he's likely ending up second in Norris voting.

Still can’t believe we went on this 10 game run to end the year that cost us one of Clarke, Eklund or Guenther

Remember when Shipachyov and Dadonov were the two big KHL Free Agents in the summer of 2017?

Now both of them are having an ugly divorce from the Golden Knights

On draft day, after LA took Clarke, would you have traded every pick we had (including pick 10) to move up to pick 9 and take Guenther? To be honest I probably would have at the time, and definitely would after seeing the guys we drafted. 1 position higher and we woulda had the perfect RW for Stutzle frown

I mean Nurse was still leaning into him after the puck was gone, coulda easily been interference on Nurse too. Kane spinning like a ballerina, losing the puck in the neutral zone, then falling over for no reason and giving up a 2-on-1 is why that happened.
