    Seattle in 21'-22'- Expansion Draft

    So 20'-21' season will host an expansion draft. Team turnover will not be crazy by then but obviously some question mark's will certainly be answered. If it were this year, who do you protect or who do you forecast to be protected then?

    I wouldn't protect Hank. His contract/Salary would protect him by itself. And if by some chance they picked him, he wouldn't have much left in the tank.

    Don’t have to. He won’t be under contract.

    It will be some depth forward like a Fast or Namestnikov. Rangers have a lot of guys that will be exempt.

    In case some are unsure of eligibility: https://www.capfriendly.com/expansion-draft/seattle

    Depending on how Hajek and DeAngelo progress there might be a bit of a tough decision on defense.

    I think Fox and Hayek will be eligible, as they will have two years under NHL contracts by then. This draft will be more painful for NYR than the last one, particularly on defense.

    Any of Fox, Kakko, and Kravtsov won't be eligible.

    Andersson, Chytil, Hajek, Howden, and Lemieux will be.

    Eligibility is based on having accrued more than two professional seasons. Fox, Kakko, and Kravtsov will have only just completed two. In Hajek and also Lindgren's case, playing time in Hartford is counted as a professional season so they'll both have completed three years.

    I'm actually curious how this will end up working. Because you need to expose 1 goalie that's under contract right? So say Sherterkin and Georgiev are here, we would have to expose one since Henrik is under contract. I wonder if we extend his deal by a year without a NMC and we can expose him instead?

    But if playing time in Hartford is counted, could they just expose the Hartford backup?

    I was going off the premise that it was this year, per the OP. But, yeah if it was next year, that would change things.

    Yes. That’s exactly what they did in the Vegas draft. They exposed Skapski. Shesterkin will be ineligible for selection. They have nothing to worry about in goal.

    I suspect the Rangers will have a tougher decision to make on defense than forward. Perhaps there will be a trading partner in the opposite position who will trade a forward for a defenseman.

    Could Huska be exposed then? He didn't play a full year this year so I'm not sure if that counts as three years pro by the time the draft comes along? Also he'll be an RFA so we probably have to resign him to a 1 year extension by that time. Unless we next offseason sign a journeyman AHL goalie that can be exposed
