мeтpо Posted August 3, 2013 Share Posted August 3, 2013 With the report from Adam Proteau that the NHL is thinking about expanding to Seattle and.... Las Vegas...(Adam Proteau @Proteautype For what it's worth, I heard from a veteran hockey executive today who thinks the NHL's next expansion will put teams in Seattle...& Vegas) ., who on the Canucks would you protect? Assuming the rules are the same from the 2000 Expansion draft, make your list of who you would protect. The Rules: You can protect either: One Goalie, Five Defencemen, and 9 forwards OR Two goalies, Three D-men, and 7 forwards. ( Please note that these players had to at least have to be on the active roster) My list: Protect: Lack Hamhuis, Garrison, Edler, Bieksa, Tanev Sedins, Burrows Kesler, Hansen, 3rd Line center Higgins, Kassian, Schroeder While an NHL expansion may be exciting, in 2-3 years or so when they plan on expanding, you may see your favourite players who are getting older unprotected. So the question is to you: Who would you protect? I also did one for 2-3 years from now. Shinkaruk, Kesler, Jensen Sedins, Burrows Hansen, Gaunce/Horvat, Kassian Edler, Bieksa Garrison, Hamhuis Tanev Eriksson If both goalies are Lack and Eriksson, Hamhuis, Edler, Garrison (3 dmen) Shinkaruk, Horvat, Jensen, Hansen, Kesler, Kassian, Burrows ( 7 Forwards) Lack, Eriksson ( 2 Goalies ) Thoughts?
