(Update #1 (4/18/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced from round 1. Thanks to all those who chose the L.A. Kings for playing!)
We are making a BOLD prediction, COMC Nation! We’re drawing a line in the sand and proclaiming the Vegas Golden Knights as our pick to win the Stanley Cup in the 2017-18 NHL Playoffs! We can’t help but to show our support for the 1st year expansion team. We’re thrilled for the excitement that team has generated both with their rapidly growing Nevada-area local fan base, and worldwide among hockey enthusiasts. Their unlikely rise to convincingly win the Pacific Division of the Western Conference is one of the best sports stories of the year – and now we’re hoping that story continues and doesn’t end until it’s cemented in history.
Why are we so proudly behind the Vegas Golden Knights? Their success in the rink and growing support only acts as proof that there is growing demand for hockey not only across the United States, but around the globe. COMC is located just a short distance away from Seattle, WA, which has put a power play on the NHL and has demanded an expansion franchise of our own. Last month, Seattle fans put their money where their mouth is with 25,000 fans putting down deposits to be the first to purchase seasons tickets if and when Seattle is awarded an NHL franchise.
But enough grandstanding, it’s time for COMC to put our money where our mouth is! We’re willing to offer $25 COMC Store Credit to one lucky hockey Nostradamus who can correctly predict in the comments below which team can eliminate the Vegas Golden Knights from the NHL Playoffs. Or, if you’re like us and believe the Golden Knights will reign victorious, show your support in the comments below for an chance to win once the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup!
