Agree with you . I doubt with all Helm's health issues he will get picked though. Sheahan is a intesting .. maybe him.

Is there a limit on how many players a team may lose?

Each team will lose 1 player.

Some teams don't have much to offer so I would expect several of the players picked will be on expiring contracts and Vegas won't attempt to sign them.

Below is link to the team I drafted using the TSN expansion draft tool.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/assemble-the-k...rName=NJMKTDYC




Link to the draft tool itself. Looks like they updated the protected list, too bad they didn't remove the inactive players.

I was looking at the rule about protecting players and it seems weird, 2 ways only.. 7F, 3D and 1G or 8F&D and 1G. Don't know why you can't protect say 6fF 4D and 1G. Or 10D, and 1G or just 11F.

The goal was to force a few decent players and contracts to be available. Those options force every team to expose either a top 6 forward or a top 4 defenseman.
