    Default NHL Protected Lists for the Expansion Draft

    NHL Expansion Draft protected list revealed

    The list of players protected by the 30 NHL teams in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft was unveiled on Sunday. Each team had the option to protect seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie, or eight skaters and one goalie. All players with continuing and effective no-movement clauses had to be protected. All first- and second-year professionals are exempt from selection, as are unsigned draft choices.

    Vegas has until 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday to submit its expansion draft selections. The Golden Knights must choose 30 players, one from each team and must take a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies from the lists of unprotected players.

    McJesus is still on his Entry Level Contract. As is Nurse (explaining why he ain't on the list).

    There's no excuse for the Knights to have anything but the best bottom 6 in the league (including Trevor Lewis). With Joe Thornton and Eric Staal centering the first two lines, and T.J. Oshie and Anders Lee as top 6 wing options, they could be a force to be reckoned with offensively. With Budaj, Pavelec and Mrazek as goalie options, and a veteran laden patchwork defense, this team should be able to keep up right away.

    Default NHL Protected Lists for the Expansion Draft

    Wow, that's quite a list to choose from. It would be handy if the list stated current contract status, but, as mentioned above, their bottom six will be the best in the league, as their 2nd and 3rd defense pairing may be also.

    I'm an old and cranky buzzard, but I have to say it . . . LV is so effing lucky that the league wants them to hit the ground running. They should have had to pay their dues like virtually every other expansion franchise.

    Wow, him being captain and all must have made me completely forget he was still on an ELC. Of course that probably still wouldn't have clicked, but still...

    A lot of those guys are free agents. What are the chances they want to sign in vegas?

    Zero, unless they want to throw stupid money at them.

    McPhee has said he's building through the draft. It's going to be a team of youngsters, Captained by Dustin Brown, and AHL All-Stars. They might not win 20 games.

    Going with the big 30 for the Knights. With McNabb and Fleury, how can they not. McPhee is going to have booze and STUFF sent to the visitors hotel, locker room and baggage claim
