Good selection by the VGK. No offense to the Flo Bros but the only reason Gallant got **** canned was because the Panthers were having an identity crisis and seemed to have no idea what the direction of their team was supposed to be going in. Not to mention all the injuries they had to deal with.

Gallant is far from the perfect coach but he gets the best out of his players and he runs a safe system that works in today's NHL.

Good choice
I'm sure he'll hand-pick the Panthers selection in the expansion draft

Was hoping he'd end up in LA but of course he ends up close enough to cause harm instead, haha.

Congrats VGK, it's all coming together!

nice to be the 1st NHL coach of a franchise...

and nice chalenge with a underrated team, might be a better team than Colorado, Vancouver and N-J


Gallant in LA could have been nice too

He was near the top of my list. I'm not sure he was in the running, but I'm definitely happy it wasn't Hitch.

Gallant definitely seems like a good choice for LV. What i gathered from his time in Florida was that he made his players compete really hard and his team played with the right attitude. Resulted in a lot of OT games, which is going to be important for the Knights if they want to gather as many points as they can. At the end of the day they're not going to have many scorers, if any, so they have to keep games low scoring and tight and if they lose rather at least get the loser point.

He was hilariously bad with the coaches challenge at times though, i remember several that made me shake my head

No I mean, why did he go there?

I mean, upon thinking more, I get the appeal, but there are a few more established options. Vegas has the lowest potential of every team right now due to no draft picks. Oh well. Time will tell. He may squeak out a decent season.
