NHL Expansion Mock Draft: Predictions For Vegas Golden Knights' Roster

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 21:29

There's been numerous rumors swirling around that Bowman has a deal in place so that the Vegas Golden Knights take Marcus Kruger's $3.08 million cap hit off of the team's back while losing defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk in the expansion draft.

"This has been a fascinating experience to date". The last two rounds of expansion cost the incoming teams $80 million each, or the equivalent of $117.8 million in 1999 and $114.8 million in 2000.

If McPhee was willing to agree to leave Josh Manson untouched as part of the trade, both teams solve a potential complication. "We have some control over what's happening now - but now we're on the clock". Opportunistic GMs can feed the Golden Knights' future to get a player who otherwise wouldn't be on the trade market.

The 30 NHL teams have submitted their list of protected players for the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft.

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL salary cap has been set at $75 million for this season in a slight increase over a year ago. Every team had the option to protect seven forwards, three defensemen and a goaltender, or a combination of eight total skaters and a goalie.

Building through the draft is the best way to create sustainable success, and McPhee seems committed to that in Vegas.

"We've got lots of things lined up, but until we see everything, we don't have anything", McPhee said.

Offensive upside is relatively limited with first and second year pros exempt from selection.

Only players with more than two years of pro experience needed to be protected, so the Bruins didn't have to protect young defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo. How can we protect your roster?

"Will there be some players that are announced on Wednesday that aren't with us in a couple weeks?" While some notable names were picked, such as Mathieu Schneider, Geoff Sanderson and Mike Vernon, the likes of Bert Robertsson, Zac Bierk and Michael Bros also were selected.

"Nothing is final until everything is final", said McPhee. "We expect to put a good, entertaining club on the ice".

Sometime late Wednesday, McPhee and the rest of the Knights' front office will be able to relax, if only briefly. "We really like what we're looking at right now". Heading to NY would likely result in a production boost thanks to playing with better players. The Regina native has a bomb of a shot, throws a nasty open-ice hit and looks to be ready for more opportunity after soaking up 20 minutes per-game for the Wild past year. He was an absolute workhorse during his five seasons in the Sunshine State, including four campaigns with more than 55 games in goal for the Panthers.

There's a three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie in Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury available and several 20-plus-goal-scorers in Nashville's James Neal and Minnesota's Eric Staal.

Though he lost his starting job to Matt Murray, Fleury was doing fine as the Penguins goaltender before his injury. He's a Stanley Cup victor. He's been linked to Vegas for a long time but there are no guarantees he'll be taken.

The week is shaping up to be a very busy one and it all kicks off with the Expansion Draft. He struggled in 2016-17, but he was also adjusting to a backup role. As for defensemen, Buffalo's Zach Bogosian and Dallas' Dan Hamhuis are available.

Now that teams are aware of the $2 million bump, it could effect what deals they end up making with Vegas - or anyone else.

After yet another second-round exit from the playoffs, changes are certain for the Capitals. The 25-year-old has played effectively in a depth role with Chicago for the past two seasons, boosting up veterans like Brent Seabrook and Brian Campbell.
