Wilson 'talking to Every Team' Ahead of Expansion Draft Deadline

Saturday, June 17: Expansion Draft trade, waiver and signing freeze begins for all teams besides the Vegas Golden Knights.

One of the new regime's first test will be their protected list because it will give an indication on what direction this team will be heading next season.

"We have an idea of who we're going to protect, but I'm not going to let anybody know what those players are because we're still talking to different teams and we still might make a move", Canucks GM Jim Benning said.

The Vegas Golden Knights will select one player from each team.

The unprotected list includes players eligible to become restricted or unrestricted free agents, which the Golden Knights have the option to sign over the next three days.

"We think we can accomplish two things", McPhee said.

The NHL Expansion Draft will take place this upcoming Wednesday on June 21. Nashville Predator James Neal was one surprise on the unprotected list, and Marian Gaborik of the Los Angeles Kings is also available, if Vegas is willing to take on his contract.

National Hockey League teams have until 4 p.m. Saturday to submit the list of players they plan to protect from the newest expansion team, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, who will pluck one player from each National Hockey League team next Wednesday to form their initial roster for the 2017-18 season.




"People have identified people on other clubs they'd like to have", McPhee said. Goalie Jeff Glass is under contract for next season and fulfills the requirement for exposed goaltenders. Montreal may have to cut a side deal with McPhee for a draft pick to have Vegas stay away from Radulov.

Tanner Pearson, left wing: Just signed a new four-year, $15 million contract.

"The league controlled the timetable", majority owner Bill Foley told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

As this lost season drags on, and even the ice grows exhausted of the Edmonton Oilers skating on it, I'm noticing more goals against where the entire Oilers team just doesn't look sharp. Opening of the UFA/RFA Interview Period (only applies to Players who are available for selection in the Expansion Draft) for the Expansion Club only (10 a.m. ET).

Several general managers, including Arizona's John Chayka on Saturday, noted how the Golden Knights can corner the goalie market and use those assets as trade bait. If Enstrom waives, fellow blue-liner Tyler Myers (who was limited to 11 games last season because of injury) will be protected instead.

Those lists, which will be released to the public at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning, will feature some of the biggest names in the sport, but in the case of the Chicago Blackhawks, it will also provide a window into their thought process as they reshape their roster.

He's also your expected replacement for Dominic Moore should he leave via free agency come July. "They only need a couple, and there's opportunities for trades from that perspective".
