A transaction is inevitable for the Vegas Golden Knights

june 25, 2019
According to Capfriendly, Vegas Golden Knights are already way over the $81.5 millions cap hit. The organization will have no choice but to trade players in order to comply with the limit authorized by the League.

For the upcoming season, Vegas has committed $89 024 999 in salary spread over 20 contracts. However, the organization settled a big deal over the weekend by signing young forward William Karlsson. His average salary of $5.9 million for the next eight seasons is a great deal for both clans.

However, Vegas has other heavy contracts on its payroll, including those of Max Pacioretty ($7 million) and Paul Stastny ($6.5 million). It's the main reason why these two are in the middle of trade rumours.

According to The Athletic's Craig Morgan, two other players could leave Vegas soon, as Coyotes GM John Chayka is trying to get Erik Hauka and Jonathan Marchessault.

Other analysts believe that the Canadiens should take the opportunity and contact the Golden Knights to help them reduce their payroll. The Twitter account "Scrimmage & Stats" proposes that Marc Bergevin acquire defenseman Colin Miller ($3.875 million for another three seasons) and asks for a compensation like Nicolas Hague or Nikita Gusev, then trade back Miller to another team.

No matter what Vegas’s managers choose, they'll have to move by October 1st to respect the cap hit for next season. With the free agent market opening on July 1st, it's a safe bet to say that the trading market could be active by this date. We'll see if Vegas is able to get out of this embarrassing situation.
