NHL Reveals Protection Lists Before Expansion Draft

19 June 2017

There's a three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie in Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury available and several 20-plus-goal-scorers in Nashville's James Neal and Minnesota's Eric Staal. "There are lots of good players there", McPhee said. More than 30 people managed to escape though at least two people were killed, authorities said. "And this has worked out really well for the Vegas Golden Knights".

"At the GM meetings, the Golden Knights' George McPhee let everyone know that once the lists are handed to him, it's an auction for any unprotected player another team might want", Friedman wrote. It's possible Vegas general manager George McPhee might consider Ward, a veteran and former Stanley Cup victor with the Canes, or could take Lack. It's possible the Canes could offer McPhee a draft pick to select a goalie - perhaps Lack.

There's also nothing barring Vegas from making deals to select a player and trade him to another team.

Based on previous mock drafts, McPhee doesn't expect the Golden Knights to have any difficulty getting to the NHL's minimum payroll of 60 percent of the $75 million salary cap.

Van crashes into London crowd causing numerous casualties, police say
Witnesses described seeing between eight to 10 people lying on the ground near to the Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road. One witness told The Telegraph that it appeared as though the driver of the van "lost control" of the vehicle "or something".

Forward Robby Fabbri and defenseman Colton Parayko have only two years of professional experience and thus were exempt from the draft, meaning they did not need to be protected.

McPhee has continually mentioned that any player left available for the Golden Knights could be available to any other team in a three-way deal.

The Blue Jackets have already settled on a trade with the NHL's expansion franchise in Las Vegas, so Sunday's revelation of the Jackets' protected players - and unprotected players - for the expansion draft held little drama. It has already been reported the Knights will receive a 1st rounder from Columbus in return for taking David Clarkson.

Anaheim wants to keep defensemen Sami Vatanen and Josh Manson, Columbus wants to keep goalie Joonas Korpisalo, forward Josh Anderson, and defenseman Jack Johnson, and NY wants to keep forwards Josh Bailey and Casey Cizikas.

THE TORIES HAVE been told that forming a government with the DUP could jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland . On Brexit, Ms Foster said her party wanted to see "a sensible Brexit and one that works for everybody".

They are the only team that has the ability to sign an unprotected unrestricted or restricted free agent until 7:59 a.m. Wednesday. Presumably, it's another pick or prospect.

This much is certain: With plenty of teams talking, McPhee is definitely listening.

In the list of protected players made public Sunday morning, the Panthers opted to protect eight skaters and a goalie instead of 10 players (seven forwards and three defensemen) to save one of their defensemen. People have identified people on other clubs that they'd like to have. "We will not make a claim with any club before we talk to the club". It would be, do we have too many players (to choose from). You can negotiate your way out of this if you wish'.

He emphasized that each team will be contacted and given the opportunity to have a say in protecting its roster.

Hagelin has two years left on his current deal, with a $4 million cap hit per season. If you're confused by the rules of the draft, they can be found here. They must take one player - and one only - from each National Hockey League team. There's another club that has interest in this player. His $5.75 million deal runs through 2019. He's also prone to missing long stretches of time with injuries. But you also have to provide your fans on The Strip with some sort of entertainment in the first year. He's a long-term foundation piece.
