Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

If they can draft a player in the expansion draft that could be later flipped for draft picks (perhaps a Dan Hamhuis type from Dallas), more power to the Golden Knights.

Now, it's important to note that Vegas GM George McPhee might agree not to take an unprotected player ... for a price.

This means if the Blues have an unprotected player they would like to keep, Vegas could work out a deal for other players and/or draft picks to accommodate their wishes. The Golden Knight can't select 10 goalies because they're required to use up 26 of their 30 picks in filling 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalie spots. "That really didn't happen, which we were really happy about", said McPhee.

The young van Riemsdyk is arguably the most likely Blackhawks player to be taken in the draft, assuming that they don't already have a trade in place with Vegas.

Without making a deal before Saturday's afternoon trade freeze went into effect, the Rangers submitted a protection list of 11 players to the National Hockey League and NHLPA for the expansion draft that will be formally revealed - along with those of 29 other teams - at 10 a.m. Sunday. Should they select an RFA, the team they are selecting him from will not be eligible for compensation as they normally would be. Goalie Jeff Glass is under contract for next season and fulfills the requirement for exposed goaltenders. Under contract for another four years at $7.25 million per season, the Bruins will instead focus on trying to find another capable wing to skate with Krejci, particularly on his left side.

A very brief recap: The NHL Entry Draft is held for players between 18-20 (18-21 for European players) and doesn't end a players' NCAA eligibility. He did not say if that might be an option with McPhee and the Golden Knights. For example - and this is only an example - if the Sharks would like the Golden Knights to select Mikkel Boedker and his hefty contract, rather than someone else from their roster, they could sweeten the pot by offering further assets like a draft pick or a prospect. "I've been certainly talking to every team and will be talking to Las Vegas prior to our submission time tomorrow".

One commissioner said, "I hope those who will use "X" as an identifier will feel an element of comfort moving forward". The third marker will be X for not specified.

Tomorrow, all thirty GM's of the existing NHL teams will submit to the league their lists of players they want to protect from the expansion draft. 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.

Then comes the start of free agency, which opens on July 1.

Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen also were left unprotected.

The Panthers left Jonathan Marchessault out there after he broke through last season by leading Florida with 30 goals.

While Washington would still likely trade Grubauer in this scenario, they would at least be able to get something for him.
