Re: Vegas Golden Knights

The greatest atmosphere in all of professional sports will be on full display this WEDNESDAY NIGHT @ T-Mobile Arena
Wouldn't say the Greatest. It is what we would expect from Vegas

We will get that stupid "jousting" show on ice, too

I'll be on Winnipeg for G3 and if they lose G4, too

I am 100% certain Winnipeg wins at least 1 game in Vegas

Re: Vegas Golden Knights

So T-Mobile Wednesday night is gonna have a better atmosphere than a SB, a CL final, any MLB playoff game, etc... Ever been to a Pakistan/India cricket game? World Cup final, even an opening game? Right...

I'm guessing T Mobile won't crack 110 decibels...

"The loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium is 142.2 dbA and was achieved by fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, on 29 September 2014."
 
Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Hoards of naysayers a year ago predicted an NHL franchise in Vegas would be a complete failure..............:doh1
Bushay was completely accurate! Posting many times how the Vegas franchise would be a huge drawn. Bushay as solid as they come!:cheers

Loudest doesn't equate to best atmosphere....part of the equation.:lightbulb:

Been to three great games at Arrowhead, great atmosphere for sure!!!!

T-Mobile playoff game better though. :)

No one had the balls and stuck there neck out on the line like I did with this one. To me, it was.... and is a slam dunk.

Incorrect
Stated on many forums the NHL would be successful here.

This has been a good hockey city for years, tons of transplants here that love their hockey, throw in the great road trips for visitors to catch a game, this was really a no-brainer.

THEN, throw in the success of the team, what a PERFECT STORM.

Thought this before knowing how great a venue T-Mobile has turned out to be also, another huge plus.............everyone that comes to Vegas should make a point to try and catch a game there if NHL in season, terrific in all aspects.

You obviously were not paying attention before the season started here. You didn’t post in any of the threads here.

lots of bandwagon fans like you who hop on board the train after it already starts to roll.

This made me laugh. Superbowl in game atmosphere blows. 1/2 the crowd is corporate people with no rooting interest in the game. The other 1/2 is lulled to sleep by the continuous lengthy commercial breaks. A T-mobile regular season game against the Panthers would have a better atmosphere than any Superbowl.

Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Over the years I prolly glanced at over 1000 posts by Fishhead. Maybe more. Can count on one hand the number with hockey in them. No more than 10. He watched a few games in Tampa back in the day. Now a team moves to Vegas, someone springs for a ticket in one of the suites with free food and all of a sudden. He’s the hockey whisperer.

:LMAO:LMAO:LMAO

Hes is a funny guy sometimes that Fishhead.

Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Here. Why don’t we start with these 2 threads here Fish and let’s count how many times you chimed in on this topic compared to me. And while we’re at it, it sure is fun to read the guys in these 2 threads who think they have a clue and who talks out of their assholes when they speak. Couple of the better ones are Railbird and Fezzik, lol. Pure +ev knowledge they were throwing our way! The others I won’t call out out of respect.

Ohh. I left out resident sharpshooter Johnny Knuckles. He posted a real gem himself. I believe this was one of our first signs the knuckster was feeling froggy and jumped into a trread here at EOG! Lol.

More proof this dope belongs back at Covers forum. Think that’s where Winky got his start too.
 
Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Would have been nice to see Chicago in the Conference finals against Vegas,or The Rangers against them for the cup...and half the crowd rooting for the away team

Absolutly.

Seems to be the consensus over there anyways. I don’t post over there but will scan the 1st page a few times a month for something interesting. I read it today there myself.

Geez, must be like getting the Nobel Peace Prize -- OK, not the best example for being awarded for actual accomplishment over the past decade or so -- or finding a cure for cancer.

Re: Vegas Golden Knights

The best chance for comps from a casino standpoint may be at the Silverton, given their history of generosity and affiliation with the NHL
Turned out they didn't offer much.................on the flipside, TheM offered up luxury game suites with food and beverage provided.
 
Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas is most certainly a hockey town

By Frank Seravalli

https://www.tsn.ca/talent/vegas-is-most-certainly-a-hockey-town-1.1087275





LAS VEGAS — Mathieu Perreault walked to T-Mobile Arena for Wednesday’s morning skate from the Winnipeg Jets’ team hotel, but he didn’t walk down the famous Strip.
“I went the back way,” Perreault said.
It was a nice 10-minute walk, he said, even though it was 33 C just a few hours before puck drop for Game 3 of the Western Conference final. But Perreault said it was also “different.”
It didn’t feel different because of the heat, or because he took the long way around America’s playground. Perreault promised the Jets went to bed early on Tuesday night
“At this time of year, it’s all business,” Perreault said. “We’re here to win a Stanley Cup this year. Everybody is buying into that.”
It felt different because you can’t walk five feet here without seeing a Vegas Golden Knights logo. Vegas is a hockey town – and has been that way since the puck dropped in October – but that fact is amplified when you look around. If you don’t immediately spot someone in Golden Knights gear, you’ll see the team’s name and logo plastered on an old-school casino marquee.
“It’s unbelievable, to see it on TV, see everything that's going on,” Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. “Our fans are so good for us, it's exciting. They love their hockey team. Another 800 people watching practice. They're behind us big time.”
Wednesday night marks the single biggest professional sports game ever played in the state of Nevada and you can feel it.
Here are a few postcards from Vegas, a peek into what is welcoming the Winnipeg Jets:
Lady Liberty is dressed in gold in front of the roller coaster at New York, New York Hotel and Casino, which is just steps from T-Mobile Arena, home of the Golden Knights.

A life-size Marc-Andre Fleury was sculpted out of 90 pounds of chocolate, fondant and Rice Krispies treats at the Bellagio.
Meet Pedro and Jonathan, servers at the Westin Hotel who hail from San Diego and the Philippines, who had never seen a hockey game before this season but now are die-hard fans. Almost everyone is wearing Golden Knights gear at work.
It was another standing-room only crowd – on a Wednesday morning – for the Golden Knights’ brief skate at their practice facility in Summerlin, Nev., about a 25-minute drive from the Strip.
 
Re: Vegas Golden Knights

Missed the game tonight. Just watched the highlights. Looks like Fluerry stole the show. Again.

Jets need to steal one in this building or this series is over.
 
Re: Vegas Golden Knights

As of this morning the cheapest tickets for Wednesday’s games can be had in the $330 range. Friday’s game, (next week), going for $370. Prices won’t go any higher, only lower closer to game time. Unless the Knights sweep the first three and have a possible clinching game on Friday. Which can’t possibly happen. No chance, Zero. Just like there was no chance in hell an expansion team could make the playoffs to begin with.
Picked up 2 lower bowl for $91 each tonight. Noticed prices starting to drop yesterday. Went down to Toshiba plaza, had a beer and watched the vivid seats app waiting to pounce. Plenty of tix under $100.
