It's been months of anxiously waiting to hear what the new franchise would be called and it's finally official Vegas Golden Knights it is. With the HFNHL season still awaiting it's start I figured I'd give everybody a preview of what the roster might look like for the Golden Knights after the expansion draft. I used the website planmyownteam.com to see who all was available to be selected. From there I went through each HFNHL organization and protected the players I felt you guys might protect if the draft was today (using latest roster update NOV 20). FORWARDS: F Marcus Johansson Colorado F Tomas Tatar Chicago F Craig Smith Los Angeles F Tomas Jurco Tampa Bay F Jaromir Jagr Carolina F Tanner Pearson Montreal F Sven Baertschi Pittsburgh F Andrew Cogliano Edmonton F William Karlsson St.Louis F Radek Faksa Calgary F Zemgus Girgensons Arizona F Nail Yakupov Toronto F Leo Komarov Washington F Patrick Maroon Detroit F Cal Clutterbuck Buffalo F Chris Neil Ottawa F Dale Weise New York R It's an interesting bunch overall. As expected there isn't a lot of high end skill in this group, but it does have some depth and useful pieces that could be used in trades to acquire more assets. Maybe a few of these guys could even be long term pieces. DEFENCE: D Travis Hamonic New Jersey D Matt Dumba Philadelphia D Erik Gudbranson Winnipeg D Jake McCabe Vancouver D Fedor Tyutin Dallas D Mark Pysyk San Jose D David Schlemko Anaheim D Josh Gorges Columbus D Nate Schmidt Minnesota Another group of interesting options. Once again I'm not sure it has any truly elite level defenders but there is quality depth. GOALIES: G Matt Murray Florida G Fredrick Andersen New York I G Michal Neuvirth Boston G Jacob Markstrom Nashville Currently the goaltending market for the expansion draft is fairly strong. A lot can change between now and then but this looks like the spot where I might be able to get a franchise type player. As well maybe get valuable assets to move in the trade market.
