NHL - Las Vegas Golden Knights
« on: June 18, 2017, 11:02:07 pm »
Anyone following the expansion process? Each team has submitted their protected list which includes either 7 forwards, 3 defensemen, and 1 goalie or else 8 skaters and 1 goalie. Las Vegas' 30 expansion draft picks will be announced Tuesday night and rumours are saying that there will be tons of trade deals made.

Paying very close attention as I'm a huge ranger fan. I'm very curious to see all the "side deals" Vegas has done in order to select or not select a player due to draft picks going to Vegas.

Everything I've read has them taking Raanta from the Rangers which shouldn't be too bad. Plenty of backup goalies in the league.

I found myself looking up the expansion draft rules from 1992. Funny how back then, the rules in place benefited the existing teams big time. Ottawa and Tampa got shafted with their picks.
Vegas should be able to put together a pretty decent team.

Lots of decent defensemen they can take and work deals with. Not a lot of high-salary guys, which should allow Vegas to go very heavy into free agency too.

Their first 30 picks go live tonight.

Oh sweet, I thought it was tomorrow night.
Do you know what channel it is airing on and where we could find it on Kodi?

Lots of rumors coming out now about who LV picked and what deals are in place.
