Interesting on Haula, I guess I would be ok with that. It means we get to keep both Dumba and Scandella, to maybe deal one to another team to free more space as well. It will also put Staal's mind at ease, or he knew they were working on a deal for Vegas to take someone else already.
Also seeing that Tuch might be in vegas as well.
Alex Tuch will reportedly be a member of the Vegas Golden Knights by the end of the day, according to sources.
Tuch and a future conditional draft pick have reportedly been traded to Vegas in exchange for the expansion team choosing Erik Haula, who apparently has agreed to a multi-year deal. Minnesota wanted to keep Matt Dumba, Eric Staal and Marco Scandella from being taken in the expansion draft and paid a premium to keep those players on the roster. The pending trade won't become official until Vegas unveils the roster Wednesday night.
