NHL: All talk, few trades before expansion roster freeze

19 Junio 2017, 05:55 | Crisanna Felipe

Other notable Nashville players unprotected were forwards Pontus Aberg and Colton Sissons.

Now, if the team decides to get Fleury, who is a three-time Stanley Cup champion, they can use his knowledge and skill to teach the young goal keepers in their roster. No surprises there; those are the 11 players that made the most sense to shield, and the list was confirmed late Saturday by The Washington Post. So there are definitely some great goalies available.

Riley Nash: Maybe not the name you expected to see this time a year ago, but Nash is an incredibly affordable bottom-six piece and with the ability to play both center and the wing, there's no sense in the Bruins leaving him exposed for the Golden Knights.

Dustin Brown, who has five seasons and nearly $30 million remaining on his contract, and Marian Gaborik, who has four seasons and almost $20 million left on his deal, aren't exactly appealing options for the Golden Knights, despite each player's impressive resume.

What's uncertain is how many trades the Golden Knights have negotiated with teams to influence which player Vegas selects or avoids. "That really didn't happen, which we were really happy about", said McPhee. It's possible the Canes could offer McPhee a draft pick to select a goalie - perhaps Lack.

Those deals won't be formally revealed until Wednesday.

David Krejci: Another no-movement clause protected talent, the Bruins did not ask Krejci to consider waiving his NMC for the Golden Knights, which makes sense, as it would be stupid to lose this player for nothing.

Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee had difficulty containing his excitement in anticipation of the NHL's expansion draft list being released.

The Knights also can make deals to either select or not take a player. 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. As there's a number of top defensemen exposed such as Anaheim's Sami Vatanen and Ottawa's Marc Methot.

"It had all the feelings of a trade deadline, but there was conditions", Flames GM Brad Treliving said by phone. The Philadelphia Flyers didn't protect goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who the team signed to a two-year, $5 million contract extension in March. "I'm already pretty confident I know how we'll look coming out of it, and it's still a heck of a hockey team". Until then, Hextall may be shopping for a veteran goalie either via a trade at the draft or come the July 1 free agency horn. The Golden Knights could swipe Rangers forward Michael Grabner, who scored 27 goals this past season.

Chayka was exaggerating, but only slightly.

According to several news outlets, the Golden Knights have been getting offers from several National Hockey League teams asking them to stay away from certain players, and offering draft picks if they do.

The NHL is now under a trade freeze that lasts until Thursday at 8 a.m., with teams only allowed to make trades with the Golden Knights.

That doesn't mean the other GMs can't talk.

"If we don't do anything else between now and Saturday afternoon, in trading Jonathan he would've required protection", Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said Thursday.
