Finally, the Golden Knights are Canada’s team because Canada needs a Vegas Stanley Cup win as much as the NHL needs a Vegas Stanley Cup win. It needs something unpredictable, uncategorical, unquantifiable and unbelievable. It needs a playoff newbie to burn postseason norms in a bonfire of the vanities. It needs every single owner to look at every single general manager with narrowed eyes when it’s suggested ancillary players are given fat and happy contracts, instead of keeping them hungry like the Knights are. It needs an expansion team to win the Stanley Cup to underscore that no one knows anything.

I plan on meeting with Coach (Sean) McDermott, (general manager) Brandon Beane and players in the near future to reiterate that.”
