If there was a better sports story this year than the Vegas Golden Knights, nobody told me about it. A first-year expansion team wins 51 games before soaring to the Stanley Cup Finals? Unheard of. They helped rally a city still reeling from the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. They captivated a country as an island of misfits morphed into a tropical storm. It was shocking.

Bottom line: Marchessault and Smith went on to form two of the Knights’ top four scorers last season for next to no cost. It was but one example of how Vegas general manager George McPhee shrewdly leveraged new … [Read more...] about Seattle’s NHL team will get same favorable expansion draft rules as Vegas Golden Knights.
