Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

With the league-wide release of the protected lists, teams began contacting Vegas about potential three-way trades in which the Golden Knights could select an unprotected player and deal him to a club such as the Blues.

"At the GM meetings, the Golden Knights' George McPhee let everyone know that once the lists are handed to him, it's an auction for any unprotected player another team might want", Friedman wrote.

Teams are calling McPhee not just to negotiate a deal for them to pass on players they were forced to leave unprotected for the expansion draft but also to inquire about trading for a an opposing player who was left unprotected.

The Flames are routinely outshot, out-chanced and outscored with Bouma on the ice, he has tallied 14 points in his last 108 games, and he makes $2.2 million this season. While some of the offers are better than the others, Golden Knights officials are operating with the understanding that they are in power: If you want to keep a player, give Vegas an offer it can't refuse.

"There's a lot of unprotected goalies out there", Chayka said.

A fascinating expansion and entry draft week awaits.

$4 million. Struggled last season but it might be hard to pass up a speedy 27-year-old winger with 251 career National Hockey League points.


"It's going to take us awhile to pick the team tomorrow", said McPhee. He would likely receive a trove of draft picks, which would set up the Knights for this year and beyond.

"We've had a lot of discussions with free agents, we've had a lot of agents call", said McPhee.

And what about the other teams? What happens if McPhee calls and tells the Capitals they are selecting the smiling Minnesotan because he or another National Hockey League team wants him? "It's something we're obviously very active in right now and hopefully we can get a good goaltender in there that can help our group next year", said Chayka. How can we protect your roster. Vancouver's 2012 first-round pick, Brendan Gaunce, was exposed. ". I'll look back on this someday and say, 'Those were the golden years'". There's also a surplus of young goaltending talent, including Detroit's Petr Mrazek, Washington's Grubauer, the New York Rangers' Antti Raanta and Colorado's Calvin Pickard. As interesting as McPhee's clearly stated willingness to give additional protection for picks is that he noted another team may have interest in a player who is eligible to be taken in the expansion draft.

So now we are stuck waiting until the 21st until we find out if Marcus Kruger or Trevor van Riemsdyk are traded to Vegas.

Jonathan Marchessault (Florida) broke out in a big way for the Panthers in 2016-17 with a team-high 30 goals, including six game-winners. Along with that possibility, it's important to note that this team is still limited to plucking one player from each roster, although there are hypothetical scenarios where they might yield creative combinations via trades.

Longtime Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan - and last original member of the Winnipeg Jets - is the franchise's all-time leader in just about every offensive category.

But trades that didn't happen before the freeze stood out even more, most notably the Wild not dealing Matt Dumba, Marco Scandella or Jonas Brodin, and the Senators not moving Marc Methot or Dion Phaneuf.
