The Vegas Golden Knights were the biggest shock in NHL history last year. Despite being an expansion team that everybody suspected would end up in the draft lottery, the Golden Knights managed to not only make the playoffs, but bomb their way all the way to the Stanley Cup Final where they would come up short against the Washington Capitals.

One thing to be said about the Golden Knights is that they had a much more favourable set of expansion draft rules that helped them put together a moderately good team. Teams were allowed to protect fewer players than the expansion teams of the 1990s, so the Golden Knights were nowhere near Atlanta Thrashers level bad. Still, a team in their first season doing what Vegas did is incredible.

They received massive performances from players nobody expected. William Karlsson blew up for 43 goals and 78 points, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith, two players Florida desperately wanted to dump, combined for 49 goals, and Erik Haula and Alex Tuch, again, two guys Minnesota didn’t want to keep, combined for 44 goals. Marc-Andre Fleury was rock-solid in net and a wealth of middling defencemen formed a very solid blueline.

The Golden Knights rewarded their key players for their strong seasons. Marchessault got a six-year extension, Alex Tuch was given seven years, Shea Theodore, Colin Miller, Brayden McNabb, and Nate Schmidt all got long-term deals, and Fleury was given $21 million over three seasons. The Golden Knights believe in this core that led them to the Cup Final and they rewarded them handsomely.

Over the summer, Vegas allowed James Neal and David Perron, two key contributors to their playoff run, to walk in free agency. To replace them, the Golden Knights made a major free agent addition, signing Paul Stastny to a three-year deal worth $6.5 million annually, and they traded for Max Pacioretty. They dealt Tomas Tatar and top prospect Nick Suzuki to Montreal for their captain and then proceeded to ink him to a four-year extension worth $7 million annually.

The Golden Knights were expected to grab a bunch of players from the expansion draft and ultimately use them to acquire draft picks and prospects to help them build for the future. Instead, they now have 13 players signed beyond the 2019-20 season and have a pretty significant core of players locked up even beyond that.

In terms of key free agents coming up, the Golden Knights will need to figure out a deal with William Karlsson, who was qualified for a one-year deal last summer after his breakout campaign. Beyond him, though, the Golden Knights don’t really have any important roster players soon to hit the open market. Despite having these players locked for the long-term, the Golden Knights have a decent amount of cap room to play with and could easily take a stab at a marquee free agent in the off-season.
