Romanian prime minister, gov't ousted in no-confidence vote
This was the first time a governing coalition has sacked its own prime minister, according to Romanian news channel Digi24. Romania's government has collapsed after only six months in office, AFP reported on Wednesday, citing an unnamed official.
The NHL has had its new deal with Adidas hyped up for a while at this point, and hockey fans were waiting on Tuesday to check out the official reveal for all of the new jerseys coming with the new apparel deal.
"We're excited for the fans and players to see the innovation and performance features that Adidas put into creating the new jerseys", said Brian Jennings, the NHL's chief branding officer and executive vice president of marketing. Dion Phaneuf refusing to waive his no-movement clause forced Ottawa to protect him and expose 31-year-old Marc Methot. He intends to inform teams who Vegas is selecting in the event they want to strike a deal to have the Golden Knights choose another player.
Patrik Elias just retired, and over the last five years Brodeur, Dainius Zubrus, Scott Gomez, Martin Havlat, Jaromir Jagr and Marek Zidlicky were either traded or left to sign with other teams. If Smith were to come to Vegas tomorrow, he could appoint himself in Golden Knights t-shirts, jackets, hats, thermal vests and so on. Vegas has at least six trades ready to be announced with the possibility of more before and after the expansion draft. This week, they'll finally have one player apiece from the other 30 clubs, putting recognizable faces on the franchise for the first time. Once that expires, he'll be an unrestricted free agent. The team exceeded expectations in 2015-16, posting a 38-36-8 mark and staying in contention until the final two months as goaltender Cory Schneider and forwards Kyle Palmieri and Adam Henrique had big seasons. From the Anaheim Ducks - who left both Josh Manson and Sami Vatanen exposed - to teams like the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins, there were a handful of clubs that are nearly certain to lose an NHL-caliber skater or goaltender. "Goalie's one position where there's a lot of good goaltenders out there right now and not a whole lot of spots". The team carries a $61.2 million cap.
Anyway, 21 years later, Las Vegas finally has an National Hockey League team.
