Sometimes, it's best to look inward within the division for solutions. Here are three pending free agents from the Pacific Division that can help the Vegas Golden Knights.

Another sizable winger that the Vegas Golden Knights can poach is Dakota Joshua. The Vancouver Canucks forward stands at 6'3" and weighs 206 lbs., where he'd potentially add more size to a team that's already big. But hey, too much size is never a bad thing, right? That's what he'd bring to the table for a big team.

Joshua would be more of a checking line player for Vegas, considering he doesn't have the offensive chops to fit on the higher lines. The native of Dearborn, Michigan, has made a living off of hitting people, amassing 467 hits in the past two seasons. Such physicality would make him a good fit with players like Paul Cotter and Keegan Kolesar, adding meat to the bottom lines.

The best part is Joshua was owed $825,000 this season and shouldn't take too much cap space next season. Just like with Warren Foegele, this is a player that can be brought in at a cheap price, saving the Golden Knights some valuable cap space. While he'd simply be a role player for Bruce Cassidy, he could also be a replacement for Kolesar, who's in the last year of his current deal.
