Why the Vegas Golden Knights could be Stanley Cup champions


With the world slowly returning to normal and the possibility that the NHL will be able to complete the season, it’s time to look at the teams that are favored to win the Stanley Cup. From now until the playoffs begin, I’ll highlight one team per week and make the case for it to win the Stanley Cup. This week: The Vegas Golden Knights.

In the past four years, two teams have fired their coaches during the season and gone on to win the Stanley Cup. The Pittsburgh Penguins did it 2015-16, replacing Mike Johnston with Mike Sullivan, and the St. Louis Blues did it last season, bringing in Craig Berube after piping Mike Yeo. The early returns certainly suggest the Vegas Golden Knights have a shot at making it 3-for-5 in that department.
