3. The Trade Proposal for Frank Vatrano

One additional perk of the Vegas Golden Knights getting Frank Vatrano is they're getting an additional year of control. The forward is signed through the 2024-2025 season, which means he won't be a rental. That adds more to his value, where the Golden Knights can work around him.

Therefore, it'd make sense for the Golden Knights to part ways with a second-round draft pick. While Vatrano won't carry the same weight as, say, Jake Guentzel, his contract and offensive ability give him a purpose in Bruce Cassidy's lineup. For a forward group starved of goal scorers, the Anaheim Ducks star will immediately make an impact.

Vatrano is a player the Golden Knights must have. They've been starved on the power play since their inaugural season and adding the forward with the likes of Jack Eichel makes the unit more formidable. McCrimmon must move fast to add Vatrano's services because a deal like this doesn't come around often.
