When they're down to the Final Four, they will be reseeded by regular season points with the usual tiebreakers applying if necessary.

I watched a Habs game in Florida a few years ago, and even with the majority of people there being Hab fans, it was still the most depressing NHL arena I've been to. It was cool wearing shorts to the

As far as Vegas, I don’t think their window is closing. They have a mix of aging guys, guys in their prime and as still have prospects in the pipeline.  Only position that you don’t know how long it will hold up is coincidentally goaltending.  I don’t have a heck of a last I’d faith in Lehner.  Maybe he is good for the term of his contract, but he has never been consistent.

 

It's a money thing.  They're going to lose Martinez and Janmark for cap reasons and perhaps another player as a cap casualty so they can potentially avoid having to play three skaters short at times to stay cap compliant.  This is probably their best shot at a title for now until contracts like Fleury's come off the books.

Fleury could well be of interest to Seattle (unless he has a NMC that CapFriendly doesn't show) ... either as their first-year goalie or as trade bait with salary retention.

Vegas is exempt from the expansion draft.

Seriously? That's pretty ridiculous. It was one thing to exempt other expansion teams when they were adding a teams in back-to-back years, but four years later? That seems overly lenient.

Wasn’t the scuttlebut that Fleury may be going back to the Pens?

D'OH  ...  memory fails ... again ... but the Kraken still might be interested ...

They are also exempt from receiving any portion of the Seattle expansion fee.

It's out there but how is Pittsburgh affording it?  They'd need to send Jarry the other way and have Vegas eat half of Fleury's contract to make it cap-neutral for both sides but that still puts Vegas in some cap difficulty for next year.
