Caps GM v3
Joined: Nov 2016
They'll be dead last. Think about how bad this year's Avalanche are. I know that their coaching was horrible, but this is a team that has Nathan Mackinnon, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, and Tyson Barrie. Vegas won't have a player of this caliber, unless they swing some sort of deal to leave a decent player exposed.
It seems that the catalysts of their team next year are going to be players like Jakob Silfverberg, Alex Killorn and Jack Johnson, with Marc-Andre Fleury being the best case scenario in net. GMGM said that he wants to compete right away, but there's no way that it's possible without trading their entire future. They would be smart to draft a team that barely meets the cap floor, then trade their cap space for high picks and top prospects.
