Now that Anton is outta here, is JJ the main target for LV to pickup. I'm not certain LV will pluck a defensemen off us I think their strategy will be to build the best possible NHL defense first along with goaltending. 

Who is JJ?

Forwards - Lucic, Maroon, Eberle, Hopkins, Kassian, Pitlick, Slepyshev

Defense - Larsson, Klefbom, Nurse

Goal - Talbot

1 / 2 year not available - Caggs, McDavid, Draisatl, Kharia, Benning, Broissant

Might lose Sekera or Pak

Nurse is exempt, brossoit is not, and Sekera has a nmc so he has to be on the list.

Yep - tells ya what fans know (no offense there Pillotte). Don't worry about it (Pillotte) you have no say anyway we'll protect who we need to protect and Vegas will take someone.

Sekera has a no move and has to be protected. Nurse is exempt. Pitlick is a pending UFA and doesn't need to be protected.

Also I believe we need to protect Drai. Hes a 3rd year player technically. Thank MacT for that.

Hi no offense taken. Listening to the post game last night they were talking about the defense and the protected list. They said we would only possibly lose Russell on D as Nurse is exempt (Thank goodness).

Not sure what you mean by this. If you mean Vegas can't take him because he is a UFA that is not correct. He doesn't have to sign with them but he can be taken because his contract doesn't expire until after the draft..

Can't even lose Rusell, as he's on a one year deal as well so is a UFA. Though techincally you're right - as Vegas can talk to him before anyone else so potentially they could sign him, Pitlick, and still take a player off our unprotected list. One thing I'll bet on though - Letestu will be protected. Davidson was traded because we knew that chances were very high that we'd lose him for nothing. I'm still hoping that Pouliot has a strong playoff and they take him off our hands. Reinhart may be a possibility too as I believe he is not exempt and we won't protect him.

Yay if that's the case with both Russell and Gryba we may not lose any D. Didn't realise that Draisitl was a 3rd year so have to replace Slepychev with Draisitl. And maybe Pitlick with Letestu as Pitlick is a UFA too.

Sure but if your Vegas why would you draft a fringe nhler in hopes he might sign with you. I don't protect any pending UFA's nobodies going to sign with Vegas over their established teams. Vegas also won't waste a pick on a player they dont have control over.

That is correct

Heard some hockey analysts chatter about the expansion draft.  Here's the gist of what was said:

Vegas picks 30 players from the teams' lists.  Theory is that they will pick a few goalies as they are expected to be good trading pieces going into next season.  There are a number of good back-up goalies out there, and a number of teams expected to be looking for goalies (think Calgary, Dallas, etc).  So it kind of makes sense.

Looking forward to seeing the draft played out - could be some real drama!
