Vegas Golden Knights Need To Forget The Past And Move On

from Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

It’s true that our lives are as rivers and go where they must and not always as we desire them. So as the Golden Knights opened a third training camp as the NHL team of Las Vegas on Friday, how last season ended undoubtedly offered a learning curve to embrace as a new one begins.

Players have for some time talked about burying the vision of a 5-minute major and game misconduct assessed center Cody Eakin at 9:53 of the third period in Game 7 of a first-round playoff series against San Jose.

Lower the coffin. Pick up the shovel. Pile on the dirt.

Hold the opitimism

But before optimism of the present takes its typical sturdy grip on a team thought as talented and capable as the Knights, recalling how they responded to the call on Eakin is just as significant from which to move on.

And they did so horrendously.

As bad as the call was — and we’re talking terrible — it was an immediate reaction, far more standard teeth cleaning than the root canal that followed.
