Vegas Golden Knights Projected lineup

Below is the Vegas Golden Knights projected lineup as selected by TSN’s Craig Button. With the Golden Knights drafting 4 goalies, does that mean they keep three and trade one? Would the Knights draft Marc-Andre Fleury then trade him to another team in need of a starting goalie?

The rules for the Golden Knights when they draft are the following:

  • A minimum of 14 forwards
  • A minimum of 9 defencemen
  • A minimum of 3 goalies
  • At least 20 players that have a contract for the 2017-2018 season
  • The total team salary must be 60-100% of the prior season’s salary cap ($73,000,000)
