Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The scary thing for me is... we have a lot of new young talent, Zberg and dats careers begin seriously waning, expansion begins, do we leave Z an D unprotected in say their last years?The business man in me says yes. The red wing says EAT s*** DIE for even thinking that mother f*****

Na no way man if push comes to shove we protect 7 other kids up front and let weiss Franzen abdelkader glendening and even helm(as much as that one will suck)

3rd-4th line guys will be a lot easier to replace and if were of man lose a guy or 2 I'd like to think if push comes to shove Kenny would be smart enough to say trade a Tatar and someone else for an elite defensemen

Other wise mantha jurco Tatar nyquist sheahan along with pavel and hank are untouchable along with bertuzzi or whoever else would be up here

That being said as much as the nhl wants there's no way in hell we can have 34 teams , 120+ players with new teams would mean a lot more guys in the league that shouldn't be there , at the most I see 2 new teams and possible relocations

Agree that four more teams would be too much, but I've read Las Vegas, Seattle, Quebec City and Toronto over and over. Adding two Western teams would even up the conferences and make the most sense. Regardless, teams can still lose more than one player in that scenario, as well.

There may be 4 new teams, but I believe that two of them will be relocated.
