An offseason that saw plenty of action, the Golden Knights are poised to be a team for now and down the road thanks to GM Mat Peltier.
The Vegas Golden Knights have been waiting for this moment for the past 3 months.
With coming together to pick a GM in Mathew Peltier to build a cup contender, to going through the grueling Dispersal Draft, and then an entry draft which saw them pick Juraj Slafkovsky...this team was build around many different visions.
Most of all, a solid goaltender (Jacob Markstrom), a solid D-core, and a depth forward group.
Peltier built the perfect team, being the only team in BEARD Hockey to not have to send a player down on waivers, by selecting Johnny Hockey (Gaudreau) and Alex Ovechkin and turning them into depth forwards, future picks, and prospects.
This team is built for now and for the future.
The Knights started off the season against LA with scoring punch, notching 5 goals but fell short to the kings. The team will re-group and look forward to the next few games.
We expect Peltier to assess and maybe re-tool. Stay tuned to this team as things will get real!!!!!!!
