GM For A Day: Ken’s 2021-22 Vegas Golden Knights

Welcome to GM For A Day, the first in a pair of articles in which the founders of will take control of the Vegas Golden Knights and reshape the team in a way we each believe will bring the Stanley Cup to Las Vegas.

These articles are NOT meant to be taken as a prediction as to what we believe is going to happen this offseason. This is what we would do, not what we think the Golden Knights will do (that article is coming later in the week).

Today, I (Ken) am on the hot seat. I’ve been given the keys to the car and I’m ready to start wheeling and dealing. For me, the team isn’t in need of a lot of changes, especially at the top of the roster, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be active in this unique offseason.

Here we go…

*TRADE: Ryan Reaves + 5th Round Pick to New York Rangers for 3rd Round Pick*

First up on my list of moves would be trading Ryan Reaves to free up some cap space and eliminate any possibility my head coach would ever put him in the lineup. My thoughts have been well documented on the player and I believe we could find a team willing to take him off our hands for almost nothing. The Rangers’ season ended with continuous line brawls against the Washington Capitals after Tom Wilson injured Artemi Panarin. Their new coach, Gerard Gallant, is familiar with Reaves and actually was able to pull a bit of offense out of him. We move up two rounds in the draft and relieve ourselves of $1.75 million against the cap.

Next, we’re making the big move of the offseason.

2021 Free Agency Targets

It’s July 1st, happy free agency day!

What?… It is?… Tampa hasn’t won yet?………. July 28th!?!

As it turns out, free agency day is still four weeks away, but today is still July 1st, so we’ll keep with tradition and focus on who the Golden Knights could potentially be going after when the time comes later in the month.

Here are five pending unrestricted free agents that could make sense to ink contracts and don shiny gold jerseys on the Strip next season.

Alexander Wennberg
Center, Florida Panthers

The long-time Columbus Blue Jacket took a one-year “prove it” deal with the Panthers last summer and proved he’s a good player but not one that should completely break the bank. He scored 17 goals while playing all 56 games and added one more in Florida’s short playoff run.

He’s a defensively responsible center that could certainly thrive a bit more being put in a role where he’s playing with a guy like Alex Tuch. A few years ago Wennberg racked up 59 points including 21 power-play assists.

Oh, and he’s very good friends with William Karlsson.
