    Are you sure clague is exempt. They have to expose one d man who plays the minimum number of games, but if they don't meet those number of games that doesn't mean he is protected

    You know, that’s something I’m not 100% sure about.

    The way it is written it’s a bit ambiguous and can be read either way.

    I gotta dig more on that.

    OK, I done dug a bit.

    Looks like that is exclusively an experience criteria to ensure teams don’t just expose AHL talent and does not affect the exposure criteria WRT protection.

    A SportsNet article had good language on this in the second paragraph.

    NHL teams receiving information on potential expansion draft - Sportsnet.ca

    My understanding is that anyone meeting the eligibility requirements can be selected, but the Kings must provide a minimum level of playing time. So if we expose Wagner and Walker, the Kraken are free to select Matt Luff if they want, but we have to provide better options than that.

    We're gonna know a lot about their plans when we hear the terms of the Walker deal, if he signs a long-term deal at a team friendly number, i'm inclined to think they will want to keep him, meaning they will sign a guy like Hutton to a 2-year deal just to expose and/or try to get MacDermid into enough games to meet the criteria.

    Exactly what I think will happen. If they sign a UFA longer than 2 years, Edmundson for example, then we can expect someone like Macdermid or even Clague who I think is going to likely get 40 games next season, to be exposed to Seattle. Or sign an Edmundson and another journeyman vet for 2 years to expose instead.

    Given this is going to be a terrible year a free agent they should be able to find someone for good dollar amount and short term. We are one of the few teams with cap space and we can use it this year. We won’t need to overpay because our competition will be limited

    So many teams are in cap hell and unable to offer their UFAs or even RFAs a fair contract. Bolts, coyotes, etc.

    I've enjoyed watching Tobias all season. And he has mostly held his own. Great skater and we can all see his hockey IQ is awesome. But the past few games, I've noticed he's struggled. Maybe playing so many games is affecting him? Either way, I'd consider sending him to the AHL to continue to develop there. Sounds like a demotion, but based on his age, I think not.
