    2019 Expansion Draft

    The following rules were approved for the 2017 Expansion Draft: Protected Lists * Clubs will have two options for players they wish to protect in the Expansion Draft: a) Seven forwards, three defensemen and one goaltender b) Eight skaters (forwards/defensemen) and one goaltender * All players who have currently effective and continuing "No Movement" clauses at the time of the Expansion Draft (and who to decline to waive such clauses) must be protected (and will be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits). FRANS NIELSEN * All first- and second-year professionals, as well as all unsigned draft choices, will be exempt from selection (and will not be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits). Player Exposure Requirements * All Clubs must meet the following minimum requirements regarding players exposed for selection in the Expansion Draft: i) One defenseman who is a) under contract in 2017-18 and b) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons. ii) Two forwards who are a) under contract in 2017-18 and b) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons. iii) One goaltender who is under contract in 2017-18 or will be a restricted free agent at the expiration of his current contract immediately prior to 2017-18. If the club elects to make a restricted free agent goaltender available in order to meet this requirement, that goaltender must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the club's protected list. * Players with potential career-ending injuries who have missed more than the previous 60 consecutive games (or who otherwise have been confirmed to have a career-threatening injury) may not be used to satisfy a club's player exposure requirements, unless approval is received from the NHL. Such players also may be deemed exempt from selection by the League. Regulations Relating to Expansion Franchise * Vegas must select one player from each presently existing club for a total of 30 players (not including additional players who may be acquired as the result of violations of the Expansion Draft rules). * Vegas must select the following number of players at each position: 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders. * Vegas must select a minimum of 20 players who are under contract for the 2017-18 season. * Vegas must select players with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100% of the prior season's upper limit for the salary cap. * Vegas may not buy out any of the players selected in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season. The 30 NHL Clubs must submit their Protection List by 5:00 P.M. ET on Saturday. The Golden Knights will receive the list of protected players at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday and must submit their selections by 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

    2019 Expansion Draft

    Man, it's topics like this that just gets me yearning for hockey to start already. Also, it's realllll slow at work, so I'll bite. Just remind me: Is the team able to pluck someone from the AHL? I know they couldn't grab someone like Zadina, or Rasmussen as they're still in the first or second year of their pro-career. ...but someone like Cholowski, who's technically finishing up his second year of being pro... would he be eligible for selection?

    Henrik Zetterberg has Retired

    I think they've given up on actually recapturing any penalty at this point. I'm sure in the next cba they'll tie up loopholes on trading guys who will never play again... but... until then...

    2018-2019 Opening Night Roster - Dedicated to BlueAdams!

    Can I tell you all about this time me and my friend Joel drove from Kalamazoo to Muskegon in a blizzard to watch a silly K-Wings game? Like, couldn't see but a few feet in front of the car. At points, complete white out. We got there about mid-way through the 1st period. They then proceeded to get trounced 6-0. ...but the K-Wings won all the fights, so it was all good. You know, just regular "being a wuss" stuff.

    I think I'm gonna get some Griffins games IN this season. Detroit isn't THAT far away from Grand Rapids and travel, plus game, hotel, etc. probably on par with what it might cost to take the fam to LCA for the evening.

    We'll see. It's not like I WANT Zadina to be in the AHL. I just wonder about roster space and the veteran to rookie ratio. If there are some trades, you betcha I want Zadina up on the roster. #ZadinaOrWeRiot

    Rumors Thread

    Morrissey didn’t have arbitration rights and has been hopeful all along to get a deal done before the start of training camp. He wouldn’t say if they leaning towards a bridge or long-term deal. That was from August 22 -- Fast Forward a month. Would love to see some quotes from Trouba around July/August of what 2016? Right before he held out until November? Wonder if Morrissey will hold out too? Also, what is Chevy thinking?? Stop pissing off your home grown defensive talent.

    I'd love it if one of Valeno or Zadina wowed enough to get an early shot... and it seems that we're getting on board with getting youngsters into the lineup quicker than we used to, especially with our current roster and players that could be/should be on the move. All that being said, I still don't know how quickly we want to burn through ELC years with these guys who truly could benefit from a year or more in the pros before they're brought up.

    As much as I would like that. I think he's in the A for most of the year. I'm gonna go out on a HUGE limb and say it's gonna be Rasmussen, Svech, and one of the "H" defensemen taking the three open spots. Anybody else coming up is gonna be injury call up. One of these three need to go.

    You don't say... Oh wait. That second part. Here's a legit question: Who's no longer waiver eligible?
