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?

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.
