On paper, there’s no reason why the Golden Knights shouldn’t be one of the best teams in the NHL again. They return the most productive line in hockey with William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith—all still young and only improving. Behind them, the second-line received a complete overhaul, with Max Pacioretty and Paul Stastny replacing James Neal and David Perron. Neal and Perron were great offensively, combining for 41 … [Read more...] about Is the Vegas Golden Knights’ glass half full or half empty?
