Daily Nuggets: Blues Help Golden Knights; NHL Could Move Coyotes



NHL trade talk, news, vegas golden knights

Those NHL Stanley Cup playoffs that seemed assured to the Vegas Golden Knights just a couple of weeks ago are suddenly in doubt. The Golden Knights got some help in that playoff race from the St. Louis Blues. Coach Bruce Cassidy talked about the significant difference between this season’s and last season’s team. Elsewhere in the Daily, the Avalanche and Oilers put on an astounding display of speed and hockey. The Dallas Stars gained steam at the expense of the LA Kings, and the Arizona Coyotes are down to their last chance.

I must apologize to you, readers at Vegas Hockey Now. We were forced to cut ties with our last beat writer, but two subsequent hires have fallen through due to my perceived lack of heartfelt desire for the job. This job requires a love of the profession and a passion for hockey, but the desert is short on those types who are available. We’re looking and interviewing every day and hope to have VHN back to full speed as soon as possible.

Let’s get to it.
