While the Vegas Golden Knights won't be getting the same Reilly Smith from the previous tenure, it's good to have a depth piece. His familiarity with the team and veteran presence will make Vegas better offensively. Plus, the fans would welcome back Smith with arms wide open.

If the Golden Knights do pull the trigger, you could look at a 2025 fourth-round or 2024 or 2025 fifth-round draft pick being swapped. Vegas will love to have their Original Misfit back in action. With the stars aligning, that reality is looking more like a possibility. It's almost like a return was written in the stars.
