Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

19 Junio 2017, 04:37 | Gerardo Tarin

But now, Marc-Andre Fleury has some company on that list.

All 30 existing teams must submit their protected list for the upcoming expansion draft by Saturday afternoon, which has made for a week of trade chatter and speculation as GMs jockey for position.

All of the picks will be made public Wednesday night during the 2017 NHL Awards show, which is taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Kevan Miller: In what was really a year-long tryout between Adam McQuaid, Kevan Miller, and Colin Miller, I really think it was a strong postseason showing from Kevan Miller that's earned him the right as the club's third and final protected defenseman. He did not say if that might be an option with McPhee and the Golden Knights.

Rutherford declined to comment on any potential deals like that when reached Sunday.

McPhee said he plans to use all the time allotted to find the best deals.

The next few days will be filled with speculation, rumors and a boat-load of garbage.

The Knights can also choose from several others off the Stanley Cup champions' list including forwards Matt Cullen, Bryan Rust, Carl Hagelin and defenceman Trevor Daley.

Both Vatanen and Manson are young, more-than-capable defenders that could be a major part of the Golden Knights' future and to stay away from the opportunity to draft either player would cost the Ducks prospects, draft picks and likely a roster player.

"There's a lot of things that could happen, there's one thing that probably will happen", Cole said at the Penguins' locker clean-out Thursday. "It changes things, I guess, a little bit or it makes it a little clearer as to what we're going to do".

Cole, 28, has turned into a bedrock defenseman for the Penguins over the last two-plus years since coming over in a trade from St. Louis.

Why he will not: Boedker managed just 26 points in 81 games last season, and was a healthy scratch in two of the Sharks' six playoff games against Edmonton, putting an exclamation point on his disappointing campaign.

Boedker, who signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Sharks in free agency last summer, underperformed in his first season with the team, serving as a healthy scratch on January 5 and in Games 3 and 4 of the squad's Stanley Cup playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers.

Here's an example. The Capitals have identified Nate Schmidt as one of their top four defensemen for next season. He has a reasonable cap hit of $3.5 million U.S. for each of the next two seasons and registered 65 points in 2016-17.

Pending unrestricted free agents Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau were left unprotected, which was expected.

First and second-year talents are exempt from the draft, which for the Bruins means players like Brandon Carlo and Frank Vatrano do not need to be protected.

Building through the draft is the best way to create sustainable success, and McPhee seems committed to that in Vegas. In addition to the 30 goals, Marchessault had 21 assists.

Hagelin knows first-hand that personnel decisions are often out of players' hands. "It's nothing I worry about".

"We were preparing as if the cap would remain flat, so the additional wiggle room might allow teams to retain a guy or get a guy they might normally not have been able to afford", a western conference executive told Postmedia on Sunday. The NHL Players Association executive board is meeting in Toronto to determine whether it will approve raising the salary cap from $73 million to $75 million. One notable player left protected is Callahan, who was hampered by injuries last season and the lingering effects of his hip surgery in 2016; there was some speculation that he might have considered waiving his no movement clause (NMC) so that he could be left exposed, but that turns out not to be the case.

Kuhnhackl, after playing in all 24 playoff games previous year, only saw action in 11 this spring. Marchand also begins an eight-year, team-friendly $6.125 million per season contract next season.
