NHL Expansion Draft

Postby GordonH » Jun 13th, 2017, 7:26 pm

Fleury has waived his no movement clause, so he could be moved out Pittsburgh before the deadline & before Expansion draft. Link below has 4 rumored possibilities before that deadline.

So come Sunday June 18 will be the release of the unprotected list of players, that Las Vegas can pick from to fill their roster. They get 72 hours to pick

Trade freeze happens 12pm this Saturday Pacific Time

If Las Vegas picks a combination of players that have on ice chemistry, they could have very good first season. Tricky part is staying under the Cap though.

So tonight at NHL awards show, the roster for the Las Vegas Golden Knights will be revealed.

Quick turnaround and tomorrow will be NHL Entry draft, could be a lot of wheeling & dealing happening. Next up is July 1 free agency

This'll be interesting. Wonder who the chucks lost. He'll prolly be their star player with our luck
Would so rather be over educated that a knuckle dragging Neanderthal bereft of critical thought and imagination. Although in the case of Neanderthals, that's quite the insult.

It would only be one of the unprotected players, if you click on 1 of the links in my previous post scroll down to Vancouver you will see the list.

Clearly Vancouver was not willing give up draft picks to keep Luca as a Canuck.
