Seravalli Accuses the Golden Knights of Cheating

Recently, Frank Seravalli, a renowned NHL insider, appeared on the Oilers Now podcast to make some significant revelations about the Vegas Golden Knights, hinting at possible unethical conduct.
I think Nolan Patrick was maybe a bit healthier than the Vegas Golden Knights might have let on.

Nolan Patrick was absent for the entire 2022-23 NHL season due to an upper-body injury with an unspecified timeline for recovery.
The Golden Knights had difficulties managing their salary cap throughout the past season. By placing Patrick on the Long-Term Injured Reserve (LTIR), they were able to free up a crucial $1.2 million against their salary cap.
Furthermore, Mark Stone was reinstated from the LTIR just as the playoffs commenced—a maneuver that has increasingly become a common practice for players who sustain injuries but are anticipated to return during the March/April timeframe.

Patrick's Career

Originally selected as the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 NHL draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, Nolan Patrick has faced ongoing health challenges since his draft year.
When he was just 17, Patrick scored 102 points in the WHL, raising expectations for him to be the 1st overall pick. However, injuries disrupted his draft season, though his potential was still evident enough for him to be chosen second overall. At the age of 19, he earned 30 points in 73 NHL games, indicating his potential to excel in the league.
Since that time, Patrick has missed two full seasons and participated in only 25 games with the Golden Knights during the 2021-22 season. Currently without a contract, he could potentially join a team that provides him the opportunity to play alongside high-caliber players and truly prove his worth as a top-tier talent in the NHL.
