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

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

The official draft rules state the Golden Knights must select at least 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders, have to reach at least 60 percent of last year's $73 million salary cap ($43.8 million) and need to take at least 20 players under contract for next season. Portzline notes that Pierre-Luc Dubois, the third overall pick in last year's draft, or Sonny Milano, the 16th overall pick in 2014, will not be the prospect heading to Vegas. Bjugstad led the team in points back in the 2013-2014 season, but has suffered several injuries since then, and fans have seen his production drop off significantly since signing a six-year, $24.6 million contract in December 2014.

Nashville GM David Poile said he has spoken with McPhee and that the Predators "will do the best we can to protect as many assets as we can".

"It was a rigid market", Treliving said.

Most notably, the Stars protected their rights to Russian forward Valeri Nichushkin, who left the team a year ago to return to Russia's KHL after chafing under the direction of now-former Stars head coach Lindy Ruff.

Brad Marchand: The 5-foot-9 Marchand is one of just eight National Hockey League players to have scored at least 100 goals over the last three National Hockey League seasons, and Marchand has played the third-fewest games among those eight skaters (only Patrick Kane and Sidney Crosby have done it in fewer games).

It seems the mania that was anticipated in the lead-up to the National Hockey League expansion draft is not exactly affecting the Rangers.

McPhee wasn't prepared to discuss individual players when specifically asked about Fleury, but noted there were no surprises based on the numerous mock drafts the Golden Knights conducted over the past few months. Despite going nearly the entire 2016-17 season without a goal, the 25-year-old is a strong skater, a big body and a generally effective two-way center.

More news: Trump acknowledges for first time he's under investigation

Eric's Take: The obvious targets for McPhee would be Troy Brouwer, Matt Stajan or defenceman Brett Kulak.

Riley Nash: Maybe not the name you expected to see this time previous year, but Nash is an incredibly affordable bottom-six piece and with the ability to play both center and the wing, there's no sense in the Bruins leaving him exposed for the Golden Knights. Stajan has one year left and is captain material on a new, young team.

Jason's Take: The Canucks actually made one of the first pro-active deals related to the expansion draft.

This story has been corrected by removing Red Wings defenseman Mike Green from list of unprotected players.

"Everyone's a little nervous, they're a little reluctant", Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon said on Toronto's TSN 1050. “They dont want to lose two players if you make a deal. He's a restricted free agent, and Washington has already tendered him a qualifying offer, thus making him exposed in the expansion draft. Would the Canucks have the guts to pull off a shocker like this?

How should Vegas Golden Knights GM George McPhee go about his business?
