View Full Version : Be the GM: NHL Expansion Draft

10-30-2015, 03:53 PM
Congratulations! You've been named GM of a new expansion team.

We are holding an expansion draft where you can select your roster from each NHL team. Each team can lose only one player. You must have a minimum of 20 (18 skaters and 2 goalies) and a maximum of 23 players on your roster.

Your team must be cap compliant!

Here's a tool to help:


Click "Create a team" and then click the NHL logo for a Custom team. That will give you a list of all the players in the league. Use the Search tool to find players more quickly.

Post your rosters here for public ridicule.

OK, lines not definite


Ekman-Larsson - Brodin
Fowler- Jones


Extras: Clifford, Smith-Pelly, Y. Weber.

Cap hit: $70,275,606

Good mix of vets and youth. Only thing holding them back is theres only 1 puck. And of course that it would be impossible to keep together long-term but that wasnt the game here haha

It seemed relatively simple at first and then I was like fuck cant have 4 first line centers. Started with Crosby and McDavid then just worked my way alphabetically filling in the blanks. Then I realized I went too cheap and had like a good young team with $20 mil cap space so moved a few things around and added Ovechkin and others haha.

edit: changed some stuff around for positional purposes.
