The Vegas Golden Knights are at it again, stirring up controversy among NHL fans with their use of the LTIR system. It's a move that's left many furious, but it's technically legal.

They've been pulling this trick for a while now, and this season is no exception.
With Jack Eichel and Mark Stone sidelined, they've added pieces to bolster their roster. Recently, they've retroactively placed William Carrier on LTIR to make room for Tomas Hertl, their star acquisition at the deadline.
Sure, fans aren't thrilled about it, but according to the NHL's rules, it's fair game. When Carrier, Stone, and Eichel return for the playoffs, the Golden Knights will have quite the stacked lineup, giving them a significant advantage as they aim for another Stanley Cup.
Yet, how long can they keep this up? It's a question on many minds because, let's face it, you need deep pockets to pull off moves like this consistently. For now, though, they're focused on chasing that second consecutive championship, and they'll do whatever it takes to get there.
