Stone is also a defenceman, and protecting him would force us into an 8+1 protection list.

Bieksa has a NMC - he had to be protected. Also, Anaheim has a side deal of some sorts worked out with Vegas - so we'll see what comes of things there.

Not only is Stone UFA, but to protect him in addition to Brodie, Giordano, and D. Hamiltion would force the Flames to use a 8+1 protection scheme instead of a 7+3+1 protection scheme, which means 3 extra forwards would have to be exposed by the Flames.

Bieksa has a NMC so they're forced to protect him. Didn't ask him to waive or buyout because it sounds like a deal was already made. No other specifics though.

The Ducks have a deal with Vegas, both Vatanen and Manson are not protected because of this.

That was the weird thing that I noticed. Ahead of grigorenko-former 1st. I had to google Blake to see if it was the same one that played for calgary before . I was not sure if Blake Comeau is still in NHL.

Paul Byron protected. I'm assuming there's a reason Radulov was left unprotected? Ie he'll just defect if he gets taken, therefore he won't get taken?

True, but the deals have to favour Vegas or why do them? They have certain teams over a barrel.

Sure beats the old ways of expansion, nice that Vegas has a chance to be competitive immediately.

He's a UFA who will likely re-sign with the Habs.

I don't think so now that they traded and signed Drouin. Where are they going to find the money to sign Radulov?

There's quite a few good players to choose from. Vegas won't be completely terrible.

Someone needs to waste their Sunday and update the list with contract status. Years remaining, etc....
