Marc Methot is happy that his playing future is finally settled.

Methot was selected by Vegas in the expansion draft, but it became increasingly clear that the Golden Knights had no intention of keeping him. On Monday night, they shipped the veteran to Dallas, which ended the craziness of the last week. "It was tough, not only for myself but for my pregnant fiancée," Methot said. "I think the unknown aspect of it all was the worst part. Not knowing where we were going to end up and the uncertainty of all that was tough."

It'll be interesting to see where Gagner lands and how much he'll cost if he hits the open market on July 1st. It would be surprising to see him hit the 50-point mark again next season.
