from Case Keefer of the Las Vegas Sun,
He’s concluded that Las Vegas is going to be able to land a pair of “really good goalies” supplemented with a strong defense.
“It’s what the draft is giving us,” Foley said. “I’d love to have offensive powerhouse, juggernaut like the Penguins, but it took them a long time to get there. We’re going to have to work our way into that.”
Immediate offensive help could come from the pool of unrestricted free agents. The team must spend 60 to 100 percent of the salary cap, expected to be somewhere from $74 to $75 million, on the expansion draft.
Foley hints it might fall on the lower end, as he’s impressed by the projected set of free agents and believes he won’t have trouble luring players to Las Vegas.
“We’re going to have money to spend, so we can look at who’s out there,” Foley said. “I’m twice this age, but I don’t want a bunch of 35- or 36-year-olds that play a couple years, and then they’re done. We’ll have some veterans on the team to help the younger guys, but we need to be a younger-oriented team.”
