Golden Knights 'willing to negotiate deals' so National Hockey League teams can protect assets

Sunday's big NHL reveal will bring bigger questions for Stars

Golden Knights 'willing to negotiate deals' so NHL teams can protect assets

After Sunday's reveal of the other clubs' protection lists it became evident most teams stood to lose a lot of talent for nothing in return during this week's expansion draft process. Opportunistic GMs can feed the Golden Knights' future to get a player who otherwise wouldn't be on the trade market.

The 30-man roster will be announced during the NHL Awards Show on Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena. It also is another team-first act in a career full of them. They are the only team to protect five defensemen.

Those Blackhawks exposed to the expansion draft include forwards Marcus Kruger, Jordin Tootoo, defensemen Trevor van Riemsdyk and Michal Rozsival and goaltender Jeff Glass.

"Yeah, we expect that that will happen", McPhee said.

As a result, the Golden Knights are demanding draft picks from those teams in order to be steered to selecting other players.

Rutherford declined to comment on any potential deals like that when reached Sunday. "We really believe we know what the other teams are going to do before they know what they're doing". "I'll just let that run its course here the next few days".

So, with all that in mind, here are the players the Bruins are expected to protect when the list is submitted and made public.

- The Minnesota Wild released its official list of players that will be protected from the NHL Expansion Draft, as well as its list of players that will be available to the new Las Vegas Golden Knights franchise. "It changes things, I guess, a little bit or it makes it a little clearer as to what we're going to do".

The NHL salary cap has been set at $75 million for this season in a slight increase over a year ago. That leaves Kevin Klein as the single necessary blueliner exposed, even as the 32-year-old with a $2.9 million cap hit for next year contemplates retirement.

It did, however, mean that they had to leave some talented wingers exposed. His offensive production dipped significantly after posting 16 goals and 35 points last season and 19 goals and 40 points in 2014-15.

Fleury and Murray split the duties in the playoffs as the Penguins won a second consecutive championship. Players with no more than two years of experience, most notably Robby Fabbri and Colton Parayko for St. Louis, are exempt from being selected in the expansion draft. For another, general manager Jim Rutherford wanted to have depth at the position in case of injury.

Hagelin, meanwhile, is coming off a bit of a frustrating end to his season.

Brad Marchand: The 5-foot-9 Marchand is one of just eight National Hockey League players to have scored at least 100 goals over the last three National Hockey League seasons, and Marchand has played the third-fewest games among those eight skaters (only Patrick Kane and Sidney Crosby have done it in fewer games).

McPhee must take at least three goalies but there is no maximum limit, meaning he could draft all four of these (plus more) and trade them for assets. "It's nothing I worry about".

The situation on defense was made far more clear when Gorton chose to buy out the three years remaining on veteran defenseman Dan Giradi's contract, making the three protected defensemen Ryan McDonagh, Marc Staal and Nick Holden. "Obviously we have a great group of guys and great chemistry".
