    my question was more or less vice versa. it is not mandatory to protect pending or re-signed ufas, right? you can chose for either whether to protect or expose them

    Ah, then yes - you can protect or expose pending UFA's.

    Two points for clarification:

    - I'm assuming players who had contracts but left for Europe remain on the prospect list but are eligible for the expansion draft. Correct?

    - for prospects who have reached the "must sign" window, do we have the option now to release instead?

    One. All the players on prospect lists are not eligible to be picked in the expansion draft including euros, with the exception of the 2 RFA holdouts.

    Two. I don't believe that you are allowed to release prospects before the auto sign window regardless of expansion. I would think that prospect releases for those who have not yet met the 50 game requirement in the NHL will happen before free agency as usual.

    Fair enough. Thanks.
