Most people do not understand the Expansion Draft requirements. The Sens need to expose 2 forwards that meet the criteria for exposure.DefenceWinsChampionships wrote:Oglethorpe wrote:Who do you protect ? Don't be an idiot and say Ryan.Es Ev wrote:I would not protect Dzingel under any circumstance
Does Mac have a NMC? When does Burrows NMC kick in?
F: Burrows (NMC), Turris, Stone, Brassard, Hoffman, Pageau, Smith
D: Phaneuf (NMC), Karlsson, Ceci
Leaving: Mac, Ryan, Dzingel, Methot, Wideman, Boro as probable targets.
Vegas takes Methot. Justification:
Mac (injury prone. High risk selection)
Ryan (hefty salary. likely not worth it given his salary/output)
Dzingel (possible but after his speed, his skills are average)
Boro (they can add a gritty d-man via UFA/other means)
Wideman (4-5 d-man at best. Value pick)
Methot (could be an A in Vegas. Decent contract term and price. Marquee player for marketing)
The criteria is as follows:
Under contract for 2017-18
Played at least 40 games in the NHL this season OR played at least 70 NHL games in the past two seasons.
Currently these are our forwards who meet the criteria:
So unless they sign Dzingel, Pyatt, Kelly, Stalberg, Wingels, Pageau or Neil BEFORE 5PM June 17th two of the above forwards must be exposed.
This does not mean that Vegas is restricted to selecting from those players as you can protect or select RFA/UFAs.
EDIT: Burrows contract extension begins July 1, so he does not need to be protected (unless there was a verbal agreement with Dorion).
