    Not sure if similar has been posted before but was just wondering what the Seattle expansion draft will look like for the Leafs.
    Are the rules the same as Vegas?

    They allowed each team to either protect seven forwards, three defencemen, and one goaltender or, one goaltender and eight skaters regardless of position etc etc etc.

    Maybe I'm way too early but What are your projections when it comes to what players they will protect?

    Taveras
    Matthew's
    Marner
    Nylander
    Kadri

    Rielly
    Zaitsev
    Gardiner (doubt they resign though)
    Dermott (may not have enough games)

    Freddy

    Those are just some of the main names. Care too add? Who might they lose?
    Will it even be an issue?

    Yes, this expansion draft is going to hurt more than the Vegas draft.

    It is what it is.

    The players I would hope to lose would be Zaitsev or Brown.

    Just make a side deal to not pick certain unprotected players that the leafs want to keep.

    I know that teens can only accumulate their professional years in the NHL and I know that he has yet to play 10 games with the big club. So there's that.

    if he plays 40 nhl games in 2019-2020, which he most likely will, or 70 nhl games over the next two seasons, he will be eligible for the expansion draft.

    Comical!

    You're confusing exposure with exemption bro. You're not even in the same ballpark.

    A lot can change from this year to next, too hard to predict everything that could happen so I'll wait till next year.

    No. No we do not.

    No matter what happens over the next two seasons he is already exempt.

    Do yourself a favour and research expansion rules. Hint: Start with ELC slide. I'll save you a little time. Liljegren's birthday is in April.

    I think the Leafs should work towards collection some additional assets for that time so that they could trade them to Seattle in agreement for not selecting player 'X'

    It's really not all that bad. I think they keep both Johnsson and Kappy and lose one of Brown or Hyman.

    By that time they have Grundstrom, Korshkov, Bracco as replacements.

    Would expect 7-3-1. Imagine side deals will be just as popular with Seattle as they were with Vegas, so going that route "now" wouldn't necessarily surprise me. Likely better asset lost this time around, but there's also a better team that should be able to absorb that effectively enough.

    Matthews
    Tavares
    Marner
    Nylander
    Kadri
    Hyman
    Kapanen

    Rielly
    Gardiner
    Dermott

    Anderson

    We likely lose Brown/Johnsson/Leivo

    wouldnt be suprised if we gave up a pick to keep Brown

    Shouldnt cost too much to keep those guys. Looks like we're in pretty good shape.

    Leafs can give a pick to take someone instead. Easy peasy.
