Question 7: Realistically speaking, who do you think is most likely going to Vegas?
Troy Brouwer. He is the type of player Vegas is going to be filled with and he is an experienced leader which is attractive to a brand new team.
As I said, Brouwer. He’ll be the best player Calgary exposes and he can still be a 20-plus goal scorer for Vegas. The Golden Knights should look at quality in the expansion draft, not a guy’s contract.
Hmm…I do not really know. Maybe Lance Bouma? Maybe Hunter Shinkaruk? We will see come mid-June.
I think it’ll be Lance Bouma. He only has one-year left on his contract which is much better than Brouwer’s. Bouma’s a tough guy, even though he isn’t the biggest, and it makes him a solid bottom-six guy. But like Dan said, we won’t quite know until another couple weeks.
That’s all in this Monday’s roundtable! If there’s one player you’d like to see go to Vegas, who would it be?
