Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Jun 18, 2017 5:42 pm

Three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen are among the high-profile players available for the Vegas Golden Knights to select in the NHL expansion draft.

Now it's on Golden Knights general manager George McPhee to spend the next three days poring over the list of available players as the team selects one from each of the NHL's 30 teams.

Don't know how Fleury would feel like losing for the next few years. A younger net minder would be better for them- take a chance on someone who has potential.

They'll take him to a have a name starting goalie. But the right trade offer comes along, he's getting dealt. I think he's the pick from Pittsburgh no matter what, whether he plays for the Knights or another team is up in the air.
