These three Free Agents could fill key roles for the Vegas Golden Knights.
Free Agency frenzy is firmly upon us and the Vegas Golden Knights are at the heart of all the drama, with the hunt for a big-hitter in stud defenseman Alex Pietrangelo still very much on.
The Golden Knights have put all of their eggs in one basket for the elite blueliner, who is currently on a visit in Sin City as we speak.
It is looking likely right now that the Knights will come out on top when it comes to bagging one of the biggest prizes of Free Agency, and the addition of Pietrangelo would certainly put them over the top in their quest for a championship.

However, there are other areas of the roster that could do with tweaking and it will be interesting to see what other moves the Golden Knights might make in Free Agency.
There’s still a lot of talent out there, including elite forward Taylor Hall and proven goalscorer Mike Hoffman, and that is down to the impact COVID-19 has had on the National Hockey League with teams having to deal with a flat cap for at least the next couple of seasons.
But, should the Golden Knights be successful in luring Pietrangelo to Sin City, any further moves they make will be depth ones to compliment what they already have.
They will need to pull the trigger on a significant trade or two in order to get cap compliant for the start of the 2020-21 season with teams able to go over the cap by 10 percent during the off-season, so the Knights won’t have a boatload of money to add depth pieces to this built-to-win now roster.
As we stand, the Golden Knights have $1,875,896 in cap space but that will obviously change if or when Pietrangelo signs, so the front office would have to make further moves before dipping into Free Agency to address other needs.
But, with the lack of secondary scoring needing addressing, we’ve pinpointed three forwards that could impact the Golden Knights at a fair price…
