    chief content officer Steve Mayer mentioned that the NHL will look to televise both the awards and the announcement of the expansion roster of the Vegas Golden Knights around same timeframe in Las Vegas.
    The draft is set up to where all 30 other NHL teams must submit their list of protected players by 5 p.m. eastern on June 17. Then Vegas will submit their expansion draft selections by 5 p.m. eastern on June 20. The picks will then be made public on June 21.

    Looking at the NHL's own words, “This doesn't include players whose contracts are expiring this summer, players with No Movement Clauses or players on their entry-level contracts.”

    I interpret "players whose contracts are expiring this summer" to include summer of 2017 RFA's Fast and Lindberg and Zibanejad, Pirri, Puempel and Clendening, and *cough*, UFA Glass

    Even if Vegas has the head-start option to negotiate with them before NYR, I am sure those players would want to wait to hear what NYR have to offer before accepting an offer from Vegas.

    Also -- if they are 2017 RFA's -- does not Vegas have to provide some compensation for selecting an RFA versus an exposed player under a regular contract?

    We all make mistakes and are fallible, I'm no hockey genius, so go easy on me, but if I'm wrong on the 2017 RFAs, please gently tell me why am I wrong?
    Thanks!


    Otherwise, the way I see it we are in the following situation


    WE CAN PROTECT
    — Option 1: 7 forwards-3 defensemen-1 goalie
    — Option 2: 8 skaters-1 goalie



    NMC/NTC - MUST PROTECT
    1. Nash, Rick M-NTCNMC
    2. Staal, Marc NMC
    3. Girardi, Dan NMC
    4. McDonagh, Ryan M-NTC
    G. Lundqvist, Henrik NMC

    ——————
    USING OPTION #2 --

    CAN KEEP 4 of the following and must expose the remainder, so question is which 4 do we expose.
    I would tentatively guess all could agree on the first 3, but many would have a hard time over the Grabner/ Kreider decision, but for me kreider is a must keep.
    *my suggestions for the remaining 4 skaters

    5*. Miller, J.T.
    6*. Zuccarello, Mats
    7*. Kreider, Chris
    8*. Hayes, Kevin, $2.6M

    Grabner, Michael $1.65M
    Stepan, Derek $6.5 M
    Raanta, Antii $1.0M
    Klein, Kevin $2.9M
    Holden, Nick $1.65M
    Kampfer, Steven $600k
    ------------

    TO MY EYE, THE FOLLOWING FALL UNDER THE FOLLOWING PROTECTED CATEGORIES

    ELC - PROTECTED:
    Buchnevich, Pavel ELC
    Vesey, Jimmy ELC
    Skjei, Brady ELC

    —————-
    2017 EXPIRING CONTRACT PROTECTED
    Zibanejad, Mika RFA
    Smith, Brendan, RFA
    Fast, Jesper RFA
    Lindberg, RFA
    Pirri, Brandon RFA
    Puempel, Matt RFA
    Clendening, Adam, RFA
    Hellberg, Magnus RFA

    They would be stupid not to take Raanta I think. But who knows.

    If Gorton can some how get rid of girardi in the draft I will be amazed.
