    could it just be that Schneider will be the goalie left unprotected for expansion?
    As of now we only have Varly that meets the criteria .

    Schneider is on 1year contract so no. He would be free agent by time of draft.

    Why hasn’t this move been officially announced by the Islanders/NHL? That seems odd to me.

    At least as of now the expansion draft will take place before the 2021-2022 league year starts, and thus anyone who will be a UFA on July 1, 2022 will still be eligible for the expansion draft.

    The required goalie left unprotected needs to be under contract for 2021-2022 or be a RFA.

    If he signs for less then 1M they can just bury him in the minors, no cap hit

    I still believe Islanders will be more than willing to expose Varlamov and his 5M caphit next summer

    Varlamov is currently automatically protected since they have no eligible other goalie.

    They can always resign Schneider or trade for some teams 4th stringer who fills qualifications, that being said I am guessing that won't be an issue

    I agree. Was just rectifying the guy saying a 1 year deal would cover the expansion draft.

    I would think that Sorokin will sign an extension in time for the draft thus exposing Varlamov, or the Islanders signing an AHL plugger for 2 years.

    Sorokin is exempt due to not enough AHL/NHL years.

    Very possible especially with Sorokin on the horizon. Don't believe Varlomov will be taken anyways.

    Assuming Islanders roster doesn't change, if they do a 4-4-1(they would need to protect Aho else he becomes the #1 cheap alternative) protection method they could force Vegas almost to have to take a 5M+ player so maybe Varlamov might be the best option in that regard for Seattle

    I believe you, but can you send a comprehensive list of expansion draft rules?

    Yeah. I just don't see him signing a deal like this, unless it's under the expectation that he'll be in the NHL. It's obviously not about the money in any way. It's clearly about trying to get himself another shot to prove he's not completely broken and washed up. Don't think the AHL really does that for him.

    Kinda imagine the Isles will continue to stash Sorokin in the AHL, and just bring him up if something happens to Varlamov. But let Schneider ride the pine in the NHL for the most part, with spot starts here and there.

    Would also kinda serve to hedge their goaltending situation a bit, against the Covids, if you have your Plan A (Varly) and Plan B (Sorokin) in different places.

    CapFriendly still lists him as an UFA. Is that merely technical or has he not signed with the Islanders?

    Healthy at the right time and the Isles steal the Cup. This is an all-win signing.

    14-15 when he played almost 4000 minutes, he deserves something for that. There's other examples like Price playing 72 games but man. Always worry about goalies after they do that.

    IIRC contracts under $1million in the AHL don't count against cap, even if they're one-way.

    Having a #3 will be more important than ever this season. I dunno if Schneider was the best 3 on the market, but was up there. you can’t hate this for 700k
