It takes a lot to get the best free agent on the market and still have a troubled offseason. But after getting Pietrangelo and Lehner, the Knights still have holes.

They unloaded Stastny, replaced him with the hope of Cody Glass, dumped Schmidt, and when they couldn't find a taker for Fleury dangled Pacioretty and other vets, who now aren't feeling like this is one big happy family.

Cap pressures have robbed them of depth, and being a new organization aren't stacked with picks.

They've made the SCF & WCF in 2 of their first 3 years and as you said, landed the top UFA. Do they really need to be stacked with picks? They have pretty much kicked the traditional expansion model to the curb with help from the league. And I kind of like it, as previous expansion teams were pretty much unwatchable for years.

They don't, but it would help their cap situation if they could find some minimum salary types you would normally find through the draft. Nico Roy was a shrewd ad: he might be a dirt cheap 3C.

Yeah but they can't whine about needing low priced players after landing the big UFA fish. :lol:

McCrimmon's tenure as the official GM has been tumultuous to say the least. Coaching change and a big overhaul of the defense, goaltending, and center corps.

I can't say this Vegas team is radically better than the one that finished in the bubble. In fact...I'd say it might be worse. I don't think you can get away with a depth chart up the middle of Wild Bill/Chanandler Bong/Cody Glass/Nosek. They didn't address their biggest need--firepower up front--and in fact might have exacerbated the situation.

I'm sure they'd love to get Haula back, but I don't think the money will work, unless he's willing to play for the minimum.
