3. The Trade Proposal for Jordan Eberle

Jordan Eberle is due $5.5 million for the rest of the season, which means one thing: salary retention. If the Golden Knights trade for Eberle, it'll mean possibly getting another team involved to take on his salary. After all, it's been the trend for this trade deadline.

Which team could take on the salary? Here, I'll say the Columbus Blue Jackets, who have salary cap space galore. The trade deadline motif gets bumped again, as the Golden Knights swing another trade by paying less than intended. This time, it'll be with the Seattle Kraken.

It's no secret the Vegas Golden Knights want to make another move. Acquiring Mantha and Hanifin isn't enough for the defending Stanley Cup champions, especially with their current slump. Therefore, all options are on the table for McCrimmon and company at the trade deadline.
