The Florida Connection In Vegas

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

They’ve been called the Vegas Golden Misfits, a collection of 31 castoffs who have bonded together to write a tale Disney wouldn’t believe.

No part of the Golden Knights has fit quite like Gerard Gallant’s first line - the gift from the Florida Panthers that keeps on giving.

Together with former Blue Jackets product , Dale Tallon’s miscalculation on  as the enticement to dump ’s $25-million contract are three big reasons Vegas is three wins from the Stanley Cup Final in their first season.

Oh, and they’re coached by Jack Adams Award finalist Gerard Gallant, the man the Panthers unceremoniously fired and left to wait outside the arena for a taxi after a road game last season.
