Potential Landing Spots for Vegas Golden Knights’ Pending Unrestricted Free Agents.

The Vegas Golden Knights have six pending unrestricted free agents (UFAs) heading into the offseason, leading to uncertainty about their futures.

Michael Amadio, William Carrier, Anthony Mantha, Jonathan Marchessault, Alec Martinez, and Chandler Stephenson are all on expiring contracts, with the Golden Knights having approximately $6,772,516 in cap space to potentially re-sign any of their UFAs.

Michael Amadio, acquired off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs, has demonstrated his value as a middle-six player with offensive potential, possibly attracting interest from teams like the Calgary Flames.

Despite William Carrier’s season-long struggle with injuries, his speed and effectiveness as a bottom-six player could make him a target for teams like the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Anthony Mantha’s tenure with the Golden Knights didn’t meet expectations, potentially leading him to seek a multi-year deal elsewhere, with teams like the San Jose Sharks and Utah possibly showing interest.

The future of Jonathan Marchessault poses a significant decision for the Golden Knights, with potential trade moves necessary to create cap space for his projected market value of over $7M. The Detroit Red Wings could be interested if negotiations with the Golden Knights fall through.

While the Golden Knights value Alec Martinez’s presence in the locker room, his declining play may lead to interest from teams seeking veteran defensemen, such as the Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers, or New Jersey Devils.

Chandler Stephenson, after Marchessault, could be in high demand as a versatile forward, potentially attracting interest from teams like the Boston Bruins or Toronto Maple Leafs if they can create cap space.

Ideally, the Golden Knights would retain each player and aim for redemption after their early playoff exit, driven by injuries and chemistry struggles.
