Trading forward Erik Haula to Carolina is just the beginning of trades for the Vegas Golden Knights, according to incoming President of Hockey Operations George McPhee.

“We have a little more work to do,” he said at a Thursday news conference. “We’ll see where things go in the next few days. We made a move yesterday, and there’s probably another one coming. We’ll talk about that when it happens.” The VGK are still approximately $4.775 million over the salary cap.

“The hardest thing for a manager in our sport, or a manager in any sport, is trading a player that you really like personally,” McPhee said. “It’s a hard thing to go through. Those conversations are difficult. Those kinds of conversations are telling a young man he’s not good for the NHL or telling a veteran he’s being replaced by a younger player.

“Erik took it like a pro as we expected he would, but it was not easy for any of us.”
