    I didn't see a thread, anyone have a good handle on who the Flyers would protect, who might be exposed, trades/deals, etc.?

    I tried to figure out who has to be protected, who might be gone, and it made my head hurt.

    I think in a perfect world with all comebacks going well this would be the list we would like to see with Patrick and Lindblom back and playing well.
    7f
    G (NMC)
    Hayes(NMC)
    Couts
    Konecky
    Patrick
    Lindblom
    Voracek

    Out Kubel. JVR. (laughton ufa)If you are a gambler you can expose Voracek and keep Kubel but considering Voracek's play this year I'll say he stays. Kubel in for Patrick or Lindblom if they can never play again. JVR ain't bad but if taken, it helps solves salary cap issues.

    3d
    Myers
    Sanheim
    provorov

    Out Ghost

    easy list to make. There is a way I suppose where Ghost returns to couple year ago form, Patrick, Lindblom don't recover and you go 4x4. But that is long shot.

    1G
    Hart

    out TBD

    Yeah seem pretty straightforward and non franchise crushing if the GM doesn't outsmart himself this time. Lose a player from the above non protected list and move on. Replace with the ample depth they should have available by then. Seattle probably goes with a point producing American like JVR or Gost so they are happy with a gate attraction and they will need to add salary so perfect for them.

    Actually, it probably depends if there's a 2020-21 season and how players look.
    Patrick/Lindblom are ???
    Voracek/JVR are similar, both offensive players with big contracts, depends on who look like they have something left after next season, and Voracek having that extra year on his contract.

    Its still too early. There will be unpredictable roster turnover between now and then...but if there is not.

    I think we go 7-3-1

    Giroux (NMC)
    Hayes (NMC)
    Couturier
    Konecny
    Voracek
    Lindblom
    Patrick

    Provorov
    Sanheim
    Myers

    Hart

    I am optimistic for both Oskar and Nolan.

    It is looking like:

    JvR, NAK
    Ghost

    would be the only three really "valuable" assets as of right now exposed.

    And that could change once Hagg is re-signed.

    I know he put valuable in quotes, but including Hagg there is still pushing it.

    True. He is invaluable.

    I believe unless Patrick plays a full season or lights it up for half a season, his health will scare Seattle away and will serve as an unofficial 8th slot. Same thing with Lindblom, he would need a half season at this season’s level.

    7F: Giroux, Coots, TK, Hayes, Voracek, NAK, Laughton (resigned)
    3D: Provorov, Sanheim, Myers
    1G: Hart

    That leaves JVR and Ghost as the two big exposures. For big contracts, I also believe JVR would handle being exposed and not selected better than Voracek. Anyways there are a lot of question marks that will sort themselves out after next season. Heck if Shayne bounces back and has a great year, go 4-4-1 and just keep the first four forwards I listed. Obviously a healthy Oskar and Nolan make it more complicated. I would take healthy them over the last three forwards I listed. (edit: Voracek for cap purposes, the other two for superior play)

    Seems about right. I would see about trading Ghost prior to the draft though. Even if he doesn't go back to what we thought he would be I am sure you can get something for him and expose someone else.
