    Fast, Pirri and Lindberg are also exempt because they doesn't have a contract yet for next season.

    IMO I think Girardi will accept to waive his NMC to help the Rangers for the expansion draft. I think its safe to say that Vegas would take him in the expansion draft.
    I also do think their will be some sort of side deals going on, Gorton will figure out a way to keep Grabner

    Not only are they available to be drafted, Las Vegas has a 48 hour window to work with UFA/RFA players before their current teams do.
    The Las Vegas expansion franchise will be given a head start when it comes to free agency.
    Sources told ESPN.com that as part of these fascinating expansion-draft rules we keep learning about, the Vegas organization will have a 48-hour window ahead of the expansion draft in June to speak with and sign any pending unrestricted or restricted free agents whom the 30 teams left unprotected for the expansion draft.

    I hope you're right. I'm not sure if Vegas would take him but his waiving of his NMC would definitely be a step in the right direction.

    That would mean they really want to protect Klein I assume with that 3rd slot.

    Indeed, at the moment, Grabner is the only Ranger forward who fills the exposure requirement. Jesper Fast and Oscar Lindberg are pending restricted free agents. So is Brandon Pirri. So is Matt Puempel, who would need to play 18 games in order to qualify if signed before the draft. Of course, Gorton could sign any one of his pending Group II’s to extensions at any time (though we are told there are no ongoing talks with any) or acquire a compliant forward through trade.

    Someone is wrong then.

    I think Vegas will take Raanta from us honestly. He is a cheap and has been a steady goaltender. If not as a starter, he is a god backup for them on a good deal.

    I don't think Vegas takes Girardi. They have to take ONE player from each team. It's going to be either Grabner or Raanta.

    It'd be a shame to lose either. Grabner off a career year at his cost is very attractive to a team that will need a goal scorer (I know he's not a sniper, but the numbers are there). But Raanta has potential starter written on him and his contract is also great.

    Either way it's going to suck to lose either of them.

    Are under contract

    I believe the point he was making is that Lindberg and Fast don't meet the requirement of being 2 of those forwards we HAVE to expose.
    At the same time, they are not automatically protected.

    This sounds like they aren't eligible.

    Was a poorly written piece.
    Lindberg/Fast are not eligible to meet the 2 forward requirement we HAVE to expose under those rules.
    They are still eligible to be drafted.

    His attempted point about Grabner was that he was a forward that met the requirement we have to expose.
    And he's wrong about that because Stepan, Kreider, Miller, etc all would meet that also.

    Gotcha. I think he was suggesting that the Rangers are going to protect Step, Miller, Kredier and the others. Is Step protected because of his NMC or is that after the draft it kicks in?

    Stepan is not automatically protected.

    Geez a day later I just re-read this and I meant to say Vegas would not take him, hence why I think he would accept to waive his NMC. BRAIN IS MUSH!!!

    Girardi will be bought out if he is not traded before the draft. The Rangers will not waste a protection spot on him.

    Fast, to me, is the player I'd take. Reliable, young, RFA, and trustworthy in all situations.
