About This Item

Basically, we are going to attempt to break down the salary cap for and dissect what that will exactly mean for the Vegas Golden Knights. That opens up a lot of doors and it will be a far cry from this off-season where the Knights were right up against the cap and had to pull the trigger on a slew of trades, sending Nikita Gusev to the New Jersey Devils, Colin Miller to the Buffalo Sabres and Erik Haula to the Carolina Hurricanes in order to be compliant with the cap.

Should he continue on his upward trend then Merrill should get a new deal, although Subban could look for a contract elsewhere given his desire to win a starting job in the NHL sooner rather than later. That is why I think the Knights traded for Garret Sparks so that they could have an insurance policy in place should Subban decide to leave next summer. Of course, there are two major caveats at play here.

Firstly, the majority of those players in all likelihood will get re-signed by their current teams before next summer, but some will hit the open market because that is always the case. Secondly, there is obviously no guarantee that the Knights will sign another big name, but they will have the cap space should they wish to head in that particular direction. They could instead opt to spread that money around in terms of plugging in little gaps throughout the roster, but given that all of their big weapons in the ilk of Mark Stone , William Karlsson and Shea Theodore are locked down to long-term deals, their Stanley Cup window is right now and they could do with adding an absolute stud on the blueline.

Bench minors, unsportsmanlike misconducts, you name it. Rains considered Mark Macgregor a great guy and coach, but unfortunately he did not travel with the team. After graduating from Uni, Dubroy decided to travel overseas and explore job opportunities that suited his skill-set. Dubroy remained here, following similar paths to his predecessors, Jim Fuyarchuk and John Botterill. They were picked after the national titles at the Canterbury rink in Sydney in where South Australia lost to the ACT in the final, after drawing in the prelim.

Later that year, he won the A-grade Premiership with his new club. Alternate captain of the state team that won the Tange Trophy U18 in and , he was top scorer in '90, runner-up in '91, and an All-Star both years. Canadian Jason Elliot was in net for the ACT, the young Canberra Knight who went on to a scholarship at Cornell from where he was drafted by Detroit, a third-string goalie in one of their Stanley Cup wins.

In , Rains won his second A-grade premiership with the Tigers. He thought that squad could have finished with the Silver but it was not to be. He finished high school in , spent two weeks training with the squad at the Australian Institute of Sport the following January, then flew to Japan with the National Youth Team in February.

They were already eliminated from the playoffs, and Rains was offered a tryout there and then. He felt he played well enough at the Powassan Hawks camp in the NOJHL, but after the third or fourth session the coach told him, "if you want to make the team you have to show me more".

The Canadians offered him a spot, but he rolled the dice, hoping to make the cut at the Barrie Colts camp, and declined. Within a few days he had landed a job at Reggies Sandwich Factory in Barrie where he spent the summer of '92 making friends. He trained mostly on dry land, on ice once or twice a week. It was Rains' favourite rink of all time and he laments its loss, "It's gone, it's a fire station now". The "ice man", Doug Moore, had developed his technique of purifying municipal tap water for ice-making at Maple Leaf Gardens fourteen years earlier, introducing ice re-surfacer additives to improve its look and finish.

He founded Jet Ice Limited in and the next year he introduced the concept of large format custom logo stencils for in-ice advertising, which is now one of the sport's standard revenue generators. Moore's company became the official supplier of products to the NHL and he travelled the land showing rink engineers all across the country how to make longer-lasting and better quality ice.

All but one NHL team still use it today. The Colts never lost a regular season game that season and went on to win the Sutherland Cup Championship. For the next two seasons —95 , they played at the Junior A Tier II level and were granted permission to join the Ontario Hockey League as an expansion franchise, starting play during the —96 season. Many of the '92 players went on to pro or college hockey, including John Madden who had a storied year NHL career that included a pair of Stanley Cup wins , with the New Jersey Devils and another with the Chicago Blackhawks Madden has acknowledged Jamie Massie's contributions to his success, the Colts owner of the time, as well as coaches Alec Ovenden and Jim Burke.

He had landed a hockey scholarship at the University of Michigan, turning down the Niagara Flyers who selected him in the OHL draft.

He recorded eighty goals and one-hundred assists in one-hundred-and-sixty games over four years with Michigan, while leading the Wolverines to an NCAA national title in His teams were always over-achievers and it was virtually the one team he had coached from when the boys were Minor Atoms, through to their Major Bantam season. McCann, on the other hand, had given up coaching in the lates to concentrate on scouting and player development.

Inducted into the Barrie Sports Hall of Fame as a Builder in , he had encouraged many of his players to pursue college scholarships. Cut late again, when most teams had signed everyone they could, he returned to Barrie and was fortunate to be able to sign with Juvenile team once more. A couple of major injuries in the team, nine all-up during the season, created an opportunity in defense. That pair and Chris Rurak, the tournament's top defender, were all ejected from the game for various reasons in the last ten minutes.

Rains scored the winning goal, and was selected to the second-line All-Stars. Redwings goalie Damien Fenton blocked thirty-two shots and stood on his head down 5-on-3 for the last two minutes. The win was particularly sweet for Smith who had competed for the coveted trophy twenty-seven years earlier in The Team Manager was Paul Roach. Back in Barrie, Rains resumed association hockey, filling a vacancy in defense for the season. He recalls "running into championship teams!

They won in with two lines; eleven players and a goalie. In fact, it was less than that, because they lost Simon Pike knee and Mitch Brindamour game suspension in the first game. The suspension was for headbutting and the tribunal had reportedly refused to look at the video, a copy of which survives. About two weeks after Rains won the Brown Trophy in Brisbane, he won the Goodall Cup in the state squad captained by Peter Tonkin, long-time captain of the local Falcons club.
