Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

Saturday, June 17: All teams simultaneously submit Expansion Draft protection lists to the NHL's Central Registry.

In about 30 minutes, the National Hockey League is set to approve and release protected lists for all 30 already-established National Hockey League teams.

Wednesday, June 21 Deadline for the Expansion Club to simultaneously submit its Expansion Draft Selections to Central Registry and the NHLPA (10 a.m. ET).

The Wild have an atypical run-up to the Entry Draft as they don't have picks in the first or second round. It seems like their seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie are set, and all the requirements needed for players to expose have been met.

Nevertheless, that doesn't mean the draft is meaningless, it is in many ways a good indication of the type and quality of talent that teams are bringing in. The Devils lose one player to expansion, and here are the most likely candidates to be taken.

Q: Will Carolina be a player in the free agent market in July?

What might the Las Vegas Golden Knights look like this fall? Any success in Year 1 is gravy, while the larger goal is building through the draft and being competitive in three or four years. Lindberg and Fast, both 25-year-old Swedes, are restricted free agents and hold arbitration rights. "It's a possibility. But trades are way easier talked about than to do". "Sometimes at 3 a.m. when I wake up I remind myself of that and go back to sleep". By signing Ben Smith to a $650,000 deal, he becomes eligible for the draft.

Rumours having been swirling about possible trades over the past few days, but it doesn't appear anything is imminent on the Jordan Eberle front at the moment.

Friday, June 16: Deadline for a player to waive his no movement clause for the purposes of being exposed in the Expansion Draft. Stepan signed a six-year, $39 million contract with the Rangers in 2015.

Jeff Carter, center: Led the Kings with 32 goals and 66 points last season.

There are some talented players left exposed for GM George McPhee to pick from.

Another example is the New York Islanders, who went with the unique decision of protecting five defensemen, leaving forwards like Brock Nelson and Josh Bailey available. But unless they toss Vegas a prospect I don't see it happening. Though he's clearly overpaid, he's one of the team's assistant captains and could be in line to inherit the "C" when Zetterberg retires. Deals with the Knights can be made until 5 a.m. Thursday. Nielsen is the only Red Wing in that category, and he likely would've been protected anyway. Numerous commentators say he should be traded, though most doubt the Oilers can find a trading partner. “They dont want to lose two players if you make a deal. They are expected to pursue a deal to move him for something leading into it.

"Everyone's a little nervous, they're a little reluctant", Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon said on Toronto's TSN 1050.

That leaves the Blues with approximately $6.5 million in cap space with 20 players signed.
