Fleury expected to be picked up by Vegas in Wednesday's expansion draft

Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee had difficulty containing his excitement in anticipation of the NHL's expansion draft list being released. The Golden Knights could land Eakin in their expansion draft on Wedn.

"The jersey design for the Golden Knights represents power, strength and valor which is what our team stands for", Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley said.

"We knew that from the start we are going to claim 30 players", said McPhee.

While the wait to see the Golden Knights jersey is over, you still can't get your hands on one until October.

Based on previous mock drafts, McPhee doesn't expect the Golden Knights to have any difficulty getting to the NHL's minimum payroll of 60 percent of the $75 million salary cap.

He added that Obama managed during his tenure to free 10 Americans held in North Korea. Warmbier had been released by Pyongyang days earlier after 17 months in state prison.

Prosecutors and police detectives read aloud portions of Cosby's statements to police in 2005 and in a civil deposition in 2006. Cosby testified over a decade ago as part of her lawsuit, eventually settling the case for an undisclosed sum.

McCain: Only 'Stupid' Americans Would Still Have Interest In Visiting North Korea
The North Korean government has vowed to develop a nuclear-tipped intercontinental missile capable of hitting the USA mainland. It says he developed food-borne botulism and was given a sleeping pill but never reawakened.

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.
