With the Montreal Canadiens getting set to face their first non-Canadian team of the season, the next episode of Habsent Minded looks to get information on the Vegas Golden Knights.

Joining Jared Book is Las Vegas NHL.com correspondent and Manager of SB Nation sister site Knights on Ice, Danny Webster.

Of course, they open the podcast by discussing how Vegas viewed the trade involving Max Pacioretty and Nick Suzuki, and how that set the stage for both teams to meet in this series.

They discuss the pressure on the Golden Knights. After unexpectedly making it to the Stanley Cup final in their first year, is there a need for more from the organization? How are they dealing as the heavy favourite?

We take a look at the most underrated player on the Vegas team, and look ahead to what should be a classic goaltending battle between two potential future Hall of Famers in Marc-André Fleury and Carey Price.

They come to the conclusion that these two teams are quite similar in their makeup, but at different points of their contention timeline.
