After reading Denkiteki's post, I'm hopeful that LV picks Sbisa... the argument of Vegas' cap floor + Gaunce's RFA are reasonable.

Quick question: does anyone know when Vegas announces their picks? Before or after the NHL Awards show?

Man. I had no trouble assembling a good list of assets without the Anaheim players and without taking Strome or deHaan.

Quality available is highest in G, then D, then forwards.

Philosophy:
Take three goalies that don't have to clear waivers.

Take extra D and G to make some deals.

No long term murderous contracts.

Assuming that they will get high picks from Columbus, Anaheim and NYI.

Neal Plekanec Bailey
Weal Marchessault Chiasson
Sheahan Shipachyov Grigorenko
McGinn Paquette Nolan
Gaunce
Paajarvi
Kerdiles

Hamhuis Dumba
Enstrom Miller
Methot TVR
Dillon
Reinhart
Merrill
Dahlbeck

Fleury
Raanta
Grubauer
Korpisalo (AHL)
Ulllmark (AHL)
Bibeau (ECHL)

Draft
1st (Mittelstadt)
1st NYI 15th (Valimaki)
1st CBJ 24th (Kostin)
2nd 34th (Lipanov)
2nd ANA 50th (Gildon) + Sam Steel

How I would improve this:

Get Lucas Johanson from Washington in exchange for leaving Grubauer and Schmidt. Take Connolly instead.

Get 29th (Chytil) from Dallas and leave Hamhuis taking Niemi instead.

It'll be towards the end of the NHL Awards show. All the award winners will be on stage with their trophies. Then 30 guys in Golden Knight jerseys will storm the stage, putting everyone through a table, when George McPhee saunters up on stage announcing these are the Golden Knights and serving the NHL notice that they're here.

That would be great.

Can the come to the arena in a Coors light truck and spray everyone with beer? And are introduced by a glass shattering sound?

With hearing about the deal with Leafs getting Method and not getting the Anahiem or maybe even Minny dmen i think Las Vegas will take Sbisa. Cant change my vote. Dang

That could work as well. Less violent.

Sbisa is just wishful thinking. Maybe if Benning hadn't signed a bottom-pairing defenseman at nearly $4M AAV. Bye, bye Gaunce.

Sbisa only has a one year contract left anyways. The real question is, would you rather have Sbisa and trade Gudbranson to Florida, or lose Sbisa and keep Gudbranson?

Apparently they didn't take Gaunce.
