Flames Francis: Flames left Brouwer exposed. Ferland, Lazar & Bennett protected.

Eric Francis @EricFrancis
Can confirm the #Flames didn't do anything silly by protecting Brouwer on expansion list. He was exposed. Ferland, Lazar & Bennett protected

No surprise, but in case anyone was wondering if they would subscribe to Spector's silly arguement.

No surprise.

Also, why even bring up Bennett?

Like there was ever a chance in hell he would have been exposed.

Stupid me...I just assumed he had an NTC.

Yeah, leaving an underperforming veteran on a big contract exposed? What kind of lunacy is this?

so assuming Francis is correct and everyone else protected follows common logic:

Protected:

Gaudreau
Monahan
Backlund
Frolik
Bennett
Ferland
Lazar

Giordano
Brodie
Hamilton

Smith


Exposed:
Brouwer
Stajan
Shinkaruk
Poirier
F. Hamilton
Bollig
Vey
Chiasson
Versteeg

Bartowski
Engelland
Kulak
Culkin
Stone
Wotherspoon
Kostka
Wideman

McCollum
Elliott

everyone else in the org is exempt

good

seemed like an absolute no-brainer to me.

Spector is full of crap... Brouwer needs to looks himself in the mirror rather than blaming anyone else for being exposed... if he's too petulant to handle that and becomes 'a cancer' like spector suggests, then they need to deal him.

play up to your f'n contract or gtfo

So, yet again, Treliving proves that he has no ego and is completely able to admit his mistakes. Hopefully, this can finally shut those up who keep second guessing him on that aspect.

Leaving Brouwer exposed and protecting youth and role playing depth in Ferland, Lazar, Bennett...FANTASTIC.
LV please please scoop Brouwer. Flames can hopfully Unload that slacker and boat anchor contract.

They won't be officially released until Sunday 10am ET. They may leak out before then though.

If it's true that Centre will be the position they have the fewest options for, I could see Vegas taking Stajan. Solid fourth liner (maybe even third liner on an expansion team) who can play well on the PK. Also a good veteran leader for the team.

His expansion draft preview had the Flames protecting Brouwer over Ferland because to not do so would cause a rift between Brouwer and the team.

He said they might leave Ferland exposed and protect Brouwer because:

1. The Flames would want to avoid hurt feelings from Brouwer if exposed and not taken
2. It would be a favor to Vegas leaving them Ferland to take in order to get something in return (like trading them Stajan for a goalie, as an example)
