As a result, teams interested in a particular pending UFA could ask Vegas to sign that player, then trade him to them at a later date. Well, McPhee is clearly going to listen, but if another team were interested in the draft-and-trade, it could drive up the price of protection, landing Vegas a higher draft pick. Any pending free agent signed would count as Vegas' expansion-draft selection from that player's team.
"We are still talking to clubs and we are open to doing deals with clubs if they want to protect their rosters" McPhee said. "We're focused on our goal of winning the Stanley Cup and are looking forward to this week as we continue to prepare for the 2017 NHL Draft and free agency". People have identified people on other clubs that they'd like to have.
The Montreal Canadiens recouped a third-round pick from the Buffalo Sabres for 24-year-old defenseman Nathan Beaulieu, who has a connection to Vegas coach Gerard Gallant and would've been left exposed in the expansion draft.

At least 20 players must be under contract for the coming season. "So that's why you can't get too cute and try to complicate it too much".
"We were preparing as if the cap would remain flat, so the additional wiggle room might allow teams to retain a guy or get a guy they might normally not have been able to afford", a western conference executive told Postmedia on Sunday.
"We're really pleased with what's available and this, as I've said, has worked out very well for the Vegas Golden Knights", McPhee said. "I'm really interested to see how much movement that there's going to be".
The NHL announced the available and protected lists for the 30 teams that will provide players to the Golden Knights in the draft, which will be announced on Wednesday night.
The Golden Knights can also make three-way trades during this period if teams want players that have been made available by other teams.
The Panthers were rumored to be trying to move Marchessault on Saturday before the Vegas trade freeze went into affect and have been mentioned as a team who may be working a side deal with Vegas general manager George McPhee to perhaps protect a player or two on the exposed list.
As the Vegas Golden Knights become the NHL's 31st club this year, they're stocking up on talent, and they'll have their best opportunity yet to do so this week as they're afforded the chance to select one player from the each of other 30 National Hockey League teams during Wednesday's expansion draft.
