Who would you protect?

23 June 2016 - 05:45 AM

With the confirmation of Las Vegas getting a team, that means an expansion draft will be occurring this time next season. The rules are as follows:

"Players with two or fewer years of pro experience will be exempt. Players with no-movement clauses (not a less-restrictive no-trade clause) must be protected. Teams must expose at least two forwards and one defenseman who appear in 40 games this upcoming season or 70 total games in 2015-16 and 2016-17." (h/t:http://www.mlive.com..._wings_mig.html)

So, for example, the Wings wouldn't have to protect Larkin, but would have to protect Mantha. 

The teams can either protect: 7F, 3D, and 1G OR 8 Skaters (F or D) and 1 G.

In the article above, Khan takes a crack at a guess for the roster as it sits now. Here is mine:

Tatar
Abby
Mantha
Athanasiou
Nyquist
Sheahan
Glendenning

Dekeyser
Smith
Marchenko (Oulette maybe here)


Mrazek

I'm unsure how the UFA thing will work, but if we have the same team then as we have now, who would you want to protect?
