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.

Vegas has struggled with stopping shots from going through this season. So it makes sense that there would be interest in Christopher Tanev. Ironically, he fits the "Frank's Red Hot'" category, for he's tied for third in the NHL in blocked shots (118). He puts that s*** on everything.

But there are some caveats to this. Tanev does have a modified no-trade clause, which might complicate things. The defenseman's also 34 years old, which would add another older player on the Golden Knights.
