NHL Stanley Cup Final 2018 picks: Vegas Golden Knights vs. Washington Capitals preview | Predictions, odds

Technically it's possible for a modern expansion franchise to make the Stanley Cup Final faster than the Vegas Golden Knights. But they should be able to avoid Washington's struggles.

If there's a series-clinching game in which the Golden Knights could win the Stanley Cup, Martin says the plan is to broadcast it on a big screen at Credit Union Place, where local hockey games are played. "The more the merrier, but the loyal ones are here and that's good enough for us".

McPhee is responsible for acquiring 13 players on the current roster during his 17 years as general manager and also hired longtime friend Brian MacLellan, who became his successor and built the rest of the team.

Then there's that whole thing about the Golden Knights being a division rival. Now they'll go head-to-head in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final.

And they'll try to do it against McPhee's former team.

The Capitals won just eight games out of 80 and finished with a meager 21 points. Vegas fans yelled "Knights!" at the appropriated time, as is tradition at their home games. You're on-call for them all the time.

The truth is that the conditions of athletic labor have more in common with the version of industrial capitalism Marx confronted in the mid-nineteenth century than they do with conditions on Wall Street or Silicon Valley.

Both teams have come a long way since their first games of the playoffs. No, not the "Miracle on Ice" gang at Lake Placid.

Williams notched 22 goals and 58 points that expansion season. There had been some doubts that Ovechkin would ever lead the Caps to a title, but he has given some inspired performances this season.

As a team, Washington has scored the most total goals, with 66, and is sitting pretty with a 3.47 goals-per-game average. The league's worst plus/minus total this season was almost half that number, a -42 registered by New York Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy. The temperature on the Strip should hit 100 degrees on Wednesday before Game 2. That's still an National Hockey League record, as is their 446 goals against.

You get the gist. Matter of fact, don't enter Game 1 expecting the contest to be all that embarrassing for either side because blowouts have been extremely rare to open the Stanley Cup final. It was more of a, you didn't feel well or you were sick. Ovechkin is looking to finally erase his status as the best National Hockey League player without a championship.

But while the players in Washington's dressing room aware of Vegas' unprecedented run, they aren't interested in adopting a "villain" persona.

This Expansion Draft was unlike any before, as were the men making the decisions.

Sporting News will provide updates throughout Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Washington has been chasing glory for 42 seasons, and this is only their second Final appearance.

"Every round we played, everybody picked the other team against us", Fleury said. "They've never been sat around the table on the floor at the draft together".

McPhee yielded immediate results few GMs have experienced.

Most NHL GMs choose their assistants from among their past colleagues. It's been the best year of my life.

"It's amusing how life goes", said the Golden Knights GM, who managed the Capitals for 17 years.

A warm getaway destination that offers live winter sports, Las Vegas now fits that bill for Western Canadians. It can't in Seattle, either.
