The Vegas Golden Knights traded away future hall of fame goalie, Marc-Andre Fleury, this off-season. The Knights needed to get rid of some cap space, and with that came the decision to move Fleury and ride out Robin Lehner out in net for the foreseeable future. However, there are rumors starting to circulate that would send Marc-Andre Fleury back into the Pacific Division.

The Vegas Golden Knights traded away, Marc-Andre Fleury during this past off-season to the Chicago Blackhawks to help clear some cap. With the Blackhawks knowing how close they are to truly competing, they made sure they acquired a top tier goalie that they could lean on.

There are some trade rumors going around the league that could create some problems for the Vegas Golden Knights. One of the biggest competitors in the Pacific division could be getting a lot more dangerous.

The Vegas Golden Knights are in a very good spot when you consider how crazy this season has been. Seems like they have legitimately not had a single game where they’ve had a complete roster, but nonetheless, they are playing way above expectations. However, there has been one team in particular that should be considered the biggest threat: the Edmonton Oilers.

So far the Vegas Golden Knights and Edmonton Oilers have played two games against each other. In those two games, the Edmonton Oilers won. Which, in complete honesty, they should. They have Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Darnell Nurse along with many other top players in the league. As if they couldn’t get any better, there are now some rumors that they could be bringing in former Vegas Golden Knights goalie, Marc-Andre Fleury.

Marc-Andre Fleury who was in fact, the first ever starting goalie for the Vegas Golden Knights, could be returning to the Pacific Division as a Edmonton Oiler. Although, there’s not been much out there from either organization, there are a lot of rumors going around.
