Ranking Golden Knight Trade Candidates Based On... Wing Spiciness

The trade deadline is coming, which means players are flying across the NHL. While Vegas is limited in what they can trade for, it doesn't mean we can't dream up some possibilities. Here's who Vegas should consider bringing on board.

So you're the Golden Knights. You just beat arguably the best team in the Eastern Conference in the Boston Bruins, 2-1. It was an overtime thriller where the Bruins defense collapsed, leaving Mark Stone to feed Alex Pietrangelo for the winning goal. T-Mobile is a-rockin' and everyone's feeling good.

However, that doesn't change the fact that they've been average in their last 20 games heading into Thursday's game against Boston.

Granted, an array of injuries plays a major role in that. Losing Shea Theodore, William Karlsson, and Adin Hill (to name a few) can devastate a team. In fact, it can cause you to lose your grip on the Pacific Division, with the Vancouver Canucks overtaking you.

So what's a team to do? Rest on their laurels and do nothing? Not the defending champs. They need to look at making a move. While cap space might be tough to come by, the Golden Knights have no choice but to improve.

With that, we're going to look at trade candidates for the Golden Knights based on... wing spiciness. The spicier the wing, the spicier the trade (and more absurd). Here's where each trade candidate ranks on the spiciness scale.
