No. They're trading for Eric Fehr.

Huberdeau for Fehr it is!

Bobbo dropped a bunch of details on the apparent deals Vegas has in the middle of the night:

-Says that in return for passing on Vatanen and Manson, Vegas will select Clayton Stoner and Anaheim will trade them Shea Theodore

-Vegas selects Trevor van Riemsdyk and gets Marcus Krueger from Chicago

-Columbus' deal involves them trading Vegas the 24th overall pick + a prospect in return for Vegas not selecting Jack Johnson. Vegas might also be taking on David Clarkson's contract

-SOMETHING is happening with Florida and Marchessault/Smith, but that's the tough one to pin down. Vegas might get a pick to not select one, or Florida might actually make a deal where Vegas gets BOTH of them in return for other assets from Vegas

-In Minnesota, it appears as though Brodin/Scandella/Staal are safe. Vegas looks to be getting Eric Haula + a prospect instead

-The Islanders are sending the concussed Mikhail Grabovski and a 1st round draft pick to Vegas. There was also talk that this involved Vegas having to select Nikolai Kulemin instead of the other much better unprotected players the Islanders have. That hasn't been confirmed but it does seem as though New York earned some extra protection slots with the 1st rounder

-Pittsburgh is sending something to Vegas to ensure they select Fleury, likely just a draft pick or two

-Tampa might have a deal to steer Vegas away from their younger unprotected defenceman like Koekkoek and Dotchin and instead having them take Jason Garrison and his $4.6mil cap hit instead

With that said, Mirtle also said this:

Vegas could have side deals with nearly half the other 30 NHL teams I'm told. That's crazy.

So there's still likely a bunch of other smaller deals around too.

Hey, this was pretty accurate!

Dorion said teams were calling interested in trading for Methot but idea of trading him did not sit right. Decided to leave him for Vegas.

Vegas has had all the leverage for a long time in this process but now losing some as every day goes by and still have players to move...

From talking to some teams, they know full well that VGK can't bring all those players to camp... pressure is on to flip more guys asap...

whether that's Emelin, Methot, Sbisa, etc... can they get as much as they thought they'd get?

Vegas still has 10 NHL defencemen (using a loose definition of that term for guys like Griffin Reinhart and a couple others) on their roster. Only one, Shea Theodore, is exempt from waivers. I think they probably thought they'd be able to clean up by trading a handful of those guys. Wonder if maybe it might have been a better idea to make more side deals with the teams they got them from.

That seems ridiculous.  "Why should I get an asset back for Methot when I can lose him for free?!"
