Last week for Forbes (how time flies!) I wrote about the ultimate impact the Vegas Golden Knights have had on Las Vegas:
Speaking of on-ice accomplishments, it would be hard to script a better first season for the team. Even a Stanley Cup win would have been a worse outcome. To use a gambling analogy: If you hit Megabucks for millions the first time you sit down at a machine, there really is no reason to play a second time. You’ll just never be able to match that jackpot (unless you’re Elmer Sherwin). Had the Knights taken home hockey’s biggest prize in their rookie year, there would have been no place to go but down.
Fun article to write. It is mind-blowing to think that Las Vegas is becoming a rising center for youth hockey.
