It’s Wednesday, right? Or is it?

Extreme warning for relentless description of abuse of minors in the junior hockey story. Some of this has been public before, but it is horrific all in one place. Please don’t repeat or quote parts of it in comments, as you don’t know who is reading and what they might feel suddenly seeing that. Don’t read it yourself if you think you shouldn’t.
From an NHL team exec this monrning, FWIW: "NHL is season is starting Jan 13th. Confirmed last night. We are going to be playing 56 games."— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) December 8, 2020
Are the Golden Knights about to go full-rebuild? Max Pacioretty might be on the move. He has three seasons left on his contract at $7M AAV, and there’s also rumours about Jonathan Marchessault. Is he also available?
To further @TSN_Sports' report that the Golden Knights are shopping Max Pacioretty:— Jesse Granger (@JesseGranger_) December 9, 2020
I've also heard Vegas has spoken to a few teams on Pacioretty.
Jonathan Marchessault's name has also come up, as well as Fleury.
Maybe they want to get rid of him and pick up one of the unsigned UFAs still out there? Mike Hoffman? There’s allegedly only five weeks left until the start of the NHL season. Some team has to pick him up soon.
