The betting public, and non betting public for that matter, loves the Vegas Golden Knights. Let's face it, we all have a little Vegas in us. Love for teams don't cash wagers and being as close to the organization as I am I know a thing or two about how they run.
I don't think all is harmonious with the Knights internally. Their goaltending coach, Dave Prior, was asked to leave but somehow GM Kelly McCrimmon had no idea that hw was gone, allegedly. I don't think Pete DeBoer was too pleased with the set-up that allowed prior to tell the head coach who to play in net. I also know that the plan is to play Robin Lehner in order to get him groomed for the future.
In addition, Max Pacioretty didn't travel with the team because of an undisclosed injury.
The vibe around the team isn't one where I would suggest laying my money on until it looks to be a synchronized unit on and off the ice. Winning cures all but the Stars are worth a shot.
