SetsChaos

We're the Golden Knights. I would be careful about throwing stones about color associations given our glass house.


SetsChaos

We Superman'd dem hoes. I am sad it wasn't a shutout, but I'm glad my birthday curse has been vanquished.


FlurriesofFleuryFury

I DID IN FACT ENJOY THIS GAME MUCH MORE THEN LAST GAME. GO KNIGHTS GO!


2thenines

Lehner still with a .929 sv % Stephenson with a 2 point game: Who the fuck even is Chandler Stephenson? He sounds like a low level manager at a small to medium sized credit union. Those big front pearly chompers bursting out of his mouth screaming that he has a great benefits package including orthodontics. Probably goes home to a beautiful wife named Theresa, two thriving sons named Douglas and Peter, and has a spotted Great Dane named Oswald who has a massive dangling set of untrimmed nuts. How you gunna be a 1C on a top NHL team and be named Chandler Stephenson. Might as well be named Dansby Swanson or something. Figure it out bud.


juicypoopmonkey

He kinda looks like dave grohl.


usernamedstuff

🀣 this is so true.


scottyfoxy

This is oddly specific


FlurriesofFleuryFury

I think someone on r/predators came up with it this game but I'm not sure


2thenines

It’s a copypasta as /u/FlurriesofFleuryFury mentioned.


SRSgoblin

It's a preds pasta that I think is an r/baseball pasta just modified. Dansby Swanson is the shortstop of the World Series champion Atlanta Braves, for context.


BlessTheKneesPart2

Have a great holiday y'all!


Heilos

You too!


theatrepyro2112

Huh, turns out winning 5-2 is more fun than losing 5-2!! Happy Thanksgiving Golden Faithful!


InnocentPossum

VGK are undefeated (1) where I have been able to post in the game thread for an extended period of time. Just sayin'.

Me too! I didn't find the sub until the end of season 2 but it's been absolutely great!


FlurriesofFleuryFury

embarrassingly, same here. I didn't even start watching hockey until season 2... Thus why I keep saying stupid shit :P :P


mograe

Everyone starts knowing nothing, no gatekeeping in this sub!


Heilos

I'm thankful for no injuries this game <3


FlurriesofFleuryFury

FlurriesofFleuryFury

I'm so thankful you're on this sub!


fracturedpersona

I celebrated yesterday because several family members wouldn't be able to attend on Thursday. We do Beef Wellington instead of turkey at my house.

VGK BRINGING THE FEAST WITH THE BIG WIN!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING FRIENDS!!! #βš”οΈGO KNIGHTS GO!!!βš”οΈ


migsahoy

If chandler stephenson has a million fans, then I am one of them. If chandler stephenson has ten fans, then I am one of them. If chandler stephenson has only one fan then that is me. If chandler stephenson has no fans, then that means I am no longer on earth. If the world is against chandler stephenson, then I am against the world.


mograe

You can add me to that list


cookbacondrunknaked

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! GREAT GAME! Edit: ALSO NO INJURIES!


SetsChaos

Say that last part again. I didn't think I'd appreciate it as much as I have this season.


cookbacondrunknaked

NO INJURIES!!


witchy_af

Happy Thanksgiving all! Grateful to have you crazy, wild, wonderful animals on this golden ride!


usernamedstuff

What do we do once Eichel joins the crew? Stephenson has 19 points this season. That's insane production for him. Of course a line with dad, Roy, and any one of our top three centers would be lethal too. I can't think of any time in our history where we've been that stacked.


mograe

Assuming we don't do anything with the Defense/Goalies and Dad leaves (if not Dad just swap him in for Smith because it has to be one of them): Patches / Eichel / Stone Misfits Rondbjerg / Stephenson / Roy Carrier / Howden / Kolesar I love these lines. Janmark also has to go to make this work, and Patrick, too, along with all our waiver claims (who are likely just rentals anyway). There's enough cap space to keep Patrick instead of Howden, but we haven't seen enough of Patrick yet to know which is better to keep. Rondbjerg/Leschyshyn/Cotter all basically make the same salary and are all waiver exempt, so they're somewhat interchangeable. OR, we somehow keep $5-$7mil on LTIR all season and end up with the most stacked roster in the playoffs. Dad/Stephenson/Roy would be an amazing third line...


usernamedstuff

Don't weeks of missing players equal out the cap space in some way, like it's averaged over the season?


mograe

So, that's what I thought at the beginning of the season, but someone said it didn't work like that so I eventually looked it up. If you're *under* the cap, the daily average savings comes into play and you can spend it all later in the year. If you're using LTIR, the player's cap isn't *waived* it's just that you're now allowed to spend over the cap in the amount of salary that you have on LTIR. So you're not accumulating any space because you're *always over the cap*, and as soon as the player comes off of LTIR you have to be cap-compliant again. If LTIR salary was completely waived, with the amount of injuries we've had, we could probably add Eichel and even another star player easily.


usernamedstuff

So, the key is to magically be healthy by the playoffs, TBL style? Do the non LTIR scratches like Carrier help?


mograe

I'm no cap expert, but I've been playing around with the "armchair GM" tool on capfriendly lately, and it looks like scratches and normal Injured Reserve do not provide any kind of cap relief. Last season we iced fewer skaters to be cap compliant, I'm not exactly sure how that worked, other than we were over the cap so we weren't allowed to use everyone. Yeah, the ideal situation is to get healthy right at the playoffs like Tampa, but our (current) injuries are projected to be back well before then.


usernamedstuff

Hmm, so Dad or Smith and McNabb, or two others combined. Suck.


mograe

Yeah. It's unfortunate that Dad or Smith is gon a have to go, they're both having pretty solid seasons. I'm not sure we would move McNabb, although it is a solution and I've heard it on the sub often enough. The way I look at it, we have about a million Forwards and we have 6 NHL defensemen, with 2 tweener Dmen (Coghlan and Hutton) who can work if we need them. But you don't want to have to rely on them. Just seems easier to dump Forwards and "hide" one of our young ones in the bottom 6 than to get rid of McNabb (a fairly solid defensive Dman, and a physical presence) and have to rely on a young defenseman for significant playing time.


Straycat43

YAY! Gotta watch the recap. I forgot about the last two games.
