The Vegas Golden Knights have lost some key pieces this off-season already, and now Jonathan Marchessault has called them out for how he was handled.

After being aggressive at the trade deadline for the past few years, the Vegas Golden Knights have been surprisingly quiet in free agency thus far, letting forwards Anthony Mantha and Jonathan Marchessault walk while making some questionable trades. Now, the latter has called out the team he won the Conn Smythe trophy with, saying that the organization didn't even make an effort to keep him after what he did for them in the past few years.
"It was pretty tough tbh, the tough part of it also was there wasn't really a decent offer on the table, I don't think they tried their best to keep me, I mean it's part of the business and they probably have other plans"

After short negotiations, Marchessault is joining another disgruntled veteran in Steven Stamkos with the Nashville Predators, while also dropping this little tidbit that will hurt Montreal Canadiens fans.
Marchessault just mentioned that #GoHabsGo were close second in his choices.😳

Ultimately, the veteran forward played a key role in getting the Vegas Golden Knights to their first Stanley Cup victory, and after not feeling wanted he landed on a key Western Conference contender alongside some major star power, so it may work out best for him in the end.
