Team: 2021-22 Vegas Golden Knights
Team Explanation
I feel like a move like this really gives Vegas a super strong group of forwards and defensemen, and passes the torch to Lehner with a solid backup in DeSmith.

I just realized if y’all get Eichel and y’all play Edmonton in the playoffs that’s a marketing dream for that series.

Buffalo keeps Bryson, and Vegas can keep New Jersey’s second round pick.

Bryson is most likely the odd man out soon. With Dahlin, power Samuelson and Johnson all on the left side.

As a huge Penguins fan and an even bigger Fleury fan - you have sparked my interest.

Main issue is that Pittsburgh can't bring in ~$9M in salary and only send $2M out. Also still not so sure that they protect Jarry over DeSmith, assuming that DeSmith is likely more appealing with his lower cap hit & 1 year remaining.

Still interested however..

Vegas better hope Lehner regains form if they're doing this trade, without fleury they're eliminated first round against minny this year.

Let’s make sure that Johnson is definitely better than Bryson before we move on from a potentially better guy. Bryson really impressed me with his game last season, we didn’t see Johnson yet.

I really don’t think Vegas is in the Eichel sweepstakes at this point. I thought they would be if they couldn’t make it passed Colorado. Losing 3 guys, that cost a combined 6 million for one guy just isn’t beneficial to a team that’s strapped on cap

Also don’t think fleury is moved, if any goalie is moved it’s Lehner with the emergence of Logan Thompson.
