Bruins reveal list of protected players for NHL Expansion Draft

19 June, 2017, 00:25 | Author: Felix Jensen
  • Mats Zuccarello #36 of the New York Rangers

Remember, the Devils can only lose one of the players below.

Vegas, which will play in the Western Conference's Pacific Division, must select one player from each of the 30 National Hockey League teams and must have a roster with a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies.

Vatanen, who will miss the start of the season after having shoulder surgery, and Josh Manson were the odd men out in Anaheim, because the Ducks couldn't protect their all their talented core of defensemen. To keep Nate on the team, the Capitals would have to trade a player or prospects that could turn out to be worth more than Schmidt or outbid another team's offer to Vegas for the player. They apparently have a deal in place with Vegas to leave their young blueliners alone.

McPhee wasn't prepared to discuss individual players when specifically asked about Fleury, but noted there were no surprises based on the numerous mock drafts the Golden Knights conducted over the past few months.

The Canes protected goalie Scott Darling, forwards Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner, Victor Rask, Elias Lindholm, Teuvo Teravainen, Brock McGinn and Phil Di Giuseppe; and defensemen Justin Faulk, Ryan Murphy and Trevor Carrick.

That leaves the Blues with approximately $6.5 million in cap space with 20 players signed.

The unprotected list includes players eligible to become restricted or unrestricted free agents, which the Golden Knights have the option to sign over the next three days. The Wild have too many defensemen, so Jonas Brodin's name has been bandied about in trade rumors, and the Ottawa Senators will have to do something because defenseman Dion Phaneuf said he won't waive his no-movement clause. Goalie Jeff Glass is under contract for next season and fulfills the requirement for exposed goaltenders.

A spokesman for his Department for Exiting the European Union said Britain had been "crystal clear" about its approach. Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein said the prospect of a British agreement with the DUP was causing anxiety and fear.

Former Buffalo GM Tim Murray had the framework of a deal sorted out with McPhee to protect one of the Sabres' players, as detailed here, but time will tell what Botterill has up his sleeve for the expansion draft.

We'll know for sure on Wednesday night, but Fleury ought to be the center-piece of the Las Vegas team. Also needing to be accommodated are defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic and goalie Martin Jones, with a year to run on their deals and significant raises due.

Chayka was exaggerating, but only slightly.

We draw another day closer to the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft to stock the Vegas Golden Knights.

From Saturday afternoon through Thursday morning, after Vegas makes its picks, the rest of the teams can't make trades with each other.

I know what I would do, and millions of other armchair GMs have their ideas, but what will the Stars do?

Said Chayka: "I think the league will kind of wait and see how the exposure lists comes out. then hopefully re-engage and see if we can make a deal that makes our team better". Knowing they couldn't, or wouldn't, protect Jannik Hansen, they moved the winger at the deadline to the San Jose Sharks.
