The expansion Vegas Golden Knights can begin making trades and signing free agents for next season as soon as Foleys final payment clears. The expansion draft is almost four months away, but Vegas could get some clarity and some assets very soon. Weve been talking with teams here for a few weeks now, general manager McPhee said. Teams are looking for some certainty with their rosters and obviously trying to improve their rosters before the trading deadline and they want to talk to us to see if theres a player that we could agree upon that for a couple months from now to claim, which would make their life easier.
