When the Vegas Golden Knights acquired Max Pacioretty from the Montreal Canadiens, the expectation was to bolster the offense. The Golden Knights had scoring depth, yet nobody stood out as a go-to scorer.

While Pacioretty wasn't anywhere near Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid, he was consistent. He had four straight seasons of 30 or more goals with Montreal and won the Masterton trophy in 2011-2012. Nothing could go wrong with the Connecticut native joining the Golden Knights, right?
