Golden Knights swipe Perron from Blues in expansion draft

23 June 2017

I don't know where I'll be in six years. That's a little surprising.

The player whom the Blues drafted No. 26 overall in 2007 and who was in his second stint with the club after coming back last summer on a two-year, $7.25 million contract, was being notified that he would not be protected in the National Hockey League expansion draft. The 29-year-old forward, nicknamed The Real Deal, has scored more than 20 goals in all nine seasons of his National Hockey League career. They won't even be enjoyable to watch once the novelty of new uniforms wears off, not unless you consider 4-1 losses enjoyable. "But in the end, I still thought I had my place on the list with the season I had".

After Foley paid $500 million to the league as an expansion fee, the Golden Knights were given favorable franchise-building terms explicitly created to give them a better chance to be competitive more quickly than the new teams of the previous 25 years.

The 2017 NHL Awards was full of some big names and new faces all around after a solid hockey season, and players were honored for some great achievements throughout the night for the previous year on the ice. "I didn't expect" the ovation.

Speaking to Complex magazine, Bella insisted that Scott is "sweet" and "charming", but she admitted she wasn't a fan of his " hardcore partying ".

"I believe we put together a great team from the net out", Golden Knights owner Bill Foley said after participating in his first Board of Governors meeting. We had another conversation and he told me that's what happened. I think I'm up for the challenge. "I got to sleep on it and then get up in the morning and start getting excited to read about the city and the set-up they have".

The Golden Knights made 10 trades, acquiring an additional five picks for the 2017 NHL Draft at the United Center in Chicago Saturday and Sunday, including two first-round selections (No. 13 and No.15).

The Penguins also traded a 2nd round pick in 2020 to Las Vegas. "That's a positive thing for (Vegas)".

Rounding out Vegas's roster from the expansion draft were forwards Teemu Pulkkinen (Arizona), William Carrier (Buffalo), Cody Eakin (Dallas), Tomas Nosek (Detroit), Jonathan Marchessault (Florida), Connor Brickley (Carolina), Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (Philadelphia), David Perron (St. Louis), Oscar Lindberg (New York Rangers), Erik Haula (Minnesota) and William Karlsson (Columbus). They are two of a handful of French-Canadiens that will be on the roster. "Going through it today, it's been a harder draft that most so it's taking some time. three picks, it's a lot to manage and you really have to focus". "But the biggest part of this working for us as a team is because of the young players that played with the Barracuda this year". It was tougher for those organizations. If they take a speedy player, they won't weigh speed any less afterward. It also added two first-round picks. That format didn't enable them to protect very many forwards, so Snow gave McPhee what amounted to a king's ransom to select 25-year-old goaltender J-F Berube, a pending unrestricted free agent who the Islanders kept on the roster all of last season for fear of exposing him to waivers.

Vegas selects Marc-Andre Fleury in National Hockey League expansion draft
Vegas, which selected 30 players in its expansion draft Wednesday night, now has three picks in each of the first two rounds. Exactly 14 years ago, Marc-Andre Fleury was taken by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the No. 1 pick in the 2003 NHL Draft.

Of course, anyone familiar with the concept of an expansion draft understands that the second of those objectives is more important - and more realistic - than the first.

Penguins in the house with their feelings on Marc-Andre's introduction in a different team's jersey.

"That gives us that depth to lose a player". There's no regrets at all. "I guess it'll depend on the player".

The NHL added nine franchises between 1991 and 2001, and no team did better than the Florida Panthers, who went 33-34-17 and racked up an expansion team-record 83 points in the 1993-94 season.
