Recommended Posts

The NHL has just announced, the expansion draft this coming summer will be televised. There will be tons of drama also, because the league has mandated that NHL teams do not have to release the list of non protected players.

Yep.

 

We are going to try and do our own MocK Expansion draft as well as the Mock NHL draft as we did last year too.

I have not researched or googled it yet, but does anyone know what order the Vegas team will be picking from the other teams?  Meaning, will they go alphabetical or by final overall standings?  Just curious.....

I don't think there's an order. I mean, there's no other team coming into the league, so what does order matter? I imagine the "reveal" will be alphabetical order. Or maybe they'll pull balls out of a bucket and have Vegas announce the player they pick from that team?! Or, or...

 

I honestly can't believe they're making a tv spectacle out of the submission of a list.

 I think it might be interesting. If for no other reason, nobody but Vegas will know which players were not protected. I expect a few teams to make side deals to avoid their players being taken. For instance, if I'm San Jose, I would NOT want to lose Dell. In fact, I'd pay a 2nd to not lose him. As you know, a good back up can mean home ice advantage for longer, insurance against your starter getting injured. I'm convinced Dell is the real deal. They pay a 2nd to keep him, but maybe down the road, they get a 1st for him....even if he is 27, I really, really like that guy. Same for Saros on Nashville. Can't see Nash wanting to part with Rinne, he still has a few good years left in him, but Saros is young and talented and will start to steal games away from Rinne next year. Maybe Washington wants to keep Grubauer. Vegas could really clean up with prospects and or picks in some of these scenarios.

It's actually quite simple. LV must take one player from each of the existing 30 franchises. LV cannot take more than one player from each of the other 30 teams.

Players eligible for the draft are those not protected by a team.

Any players with no trade or no movement clauses in their contracts cannot be drafted (and therefore do not need to be protected).

 

There are a lot of other "rules" about who has to be protected and who doesn't, but what it comes down to is that LV must draft from the list of unprotected players provided by each team. I'm sure if I missed something other posters will be by to correct me. :eyeroll:

I think you're mostly right. Since they have these clauses they MUST be protected.
