    Its early to bring up but my guess is Campbell if he has any kind of a decent year, or maybe Holl if he has a strong one. It seems unlikely that they wouldn't deal one of AJ or Kerfoot rather than lose them. If they add another RD then I would put maybe Dermott on the list ahead of Holl but I actually think he would be outbound long before the X draft because he has more than journeyman shine and they have a surplus of lefties.

    Think the Leafs protect Matthews, Tavares, Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Hyman, Kerfoot, Rielly, Holl, Dermott, Andersen
    Think you'll see the Leafs exposing Muzzin, Johnsson, and Campbell.
    However, these playoffs could be telling. If Andersen fails in the playoffs, he could be exposed for sure.
    Out of the unsigned UFA's, Clifford, Ceci, Barrie, think Barrie, who's from Victoria, one ferry trip across, could be interested in signing there and becoming their
    big offensive D-man. What Ceci does will be interesting as well, but I don't think he's a Toronto-market kind of guy.

    We might be spoiled when we talk about Hyman going to Columbus when his 21 goals would be tied with Columbus's #1 goal-scorer.

    Holl, Dermott and Kerfoot over Muzzin? Maybe one of them. No chance it's all three.

    Engvall or Holl. Expecting to have more of a contributor selected in comparison to the VGK draft. Not particularly concerned though, unless there's a rough contract on the books by then that they're looking to have Seattle take.

    I think the Leafs have a lot of options depending on how next season goes.

    Assuming no big names are traded they'll keeping Tavares, Marner, Nylander, Matthews, Hyman, Kapanen, Rielly, Muzzin, Dermott

    Kap is likely a name that could be traded this off-season, but then you have the likes of:

    AJ
    Kerfoot
    Holl
    Campbell

    That can be exposed. At this point I think the only player I would be upset to lose is Holl simply because of the lack of RHD depth. But nothing that screams to me that they should trade an asset for Seattle to not take the one of them.

    We won't have to worry about losing Campbell because we're not going to re-sign Andersen in summer 2021.

    Muzzin is not being exposed IMO. That would be shocking and incompetent.

    Hyman, I believe, is an UFA. Not sure why the Leafs would protect him?

    Protected Forwards

    Matthews
    JT
    Marner
    Nylander
    Kapanen
    Engvall
    Gauthier-if extended

    Exempt or Contract UFA
    Hyman, Mikheyev

    I expect both Kerfoot and AJ gone this offseason or a the very least AJ as Barabanov will likely take his play especially if Mikheyev picks up where he left off.


    Protected D

    Rielly
    Muzzin
    Holl

    Exempt or UFA
    Sandin, Liljegren

    Goalie
    Campbell

    Exempt or UFA
    Andersen

    Its hard to predict when we don't know how things will change between now and then but based on what we have to work with right now I think Holl. If Freddy is re-signed it could be Campbell but I am thinking Freddy's gone after next season.

    Forwards

    Protect: Matthews, Tavares, Marner, Nylander, Hyman, Kappy, whichever of Kerfoot or Johnsson doesn't get dealt.

    Exposed: Engvall, Goat, Clifford (if re-signed)

    Defense

    Protect: Rielly, Muzzin, Dermott

    Exposed: Holl

    Goalies

    Protect: Campbell

    Exposed: Kaskisuo/Some AHL goalie we bring in for the Marlies

    if Campbell plays well between now and the expansion draft I wouldn't re-sign Andersen till it's over if the plan is to re-sign him. same with Hyman

    Dubas gives up a 1st and 2 X prospects for Muzzin in trade and then re-signs him to a new 4 year deal recently, just to then exposes him to the expansion draft.

    That ain't happening or if it does then you called it. :)

    Rielly and Muzzin are automatics the only ? mark is who is the 3rd Dman protected.

    Still a season left before we can see. There could be roster changes by then. Awesome thread title ;)

    F - Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander, Kapanen, Johnsson, Kerfoot

    D - Rielly, Muzzin, Dermott

    G - Campbell

    Options - Holl, Engvall, Gauthier, Hyman (FA), Andersen (FA)

    Andersen or Hyman could re-sign with Toronto and things would shuffle around. If either of them were selected by Seattle and they did re-sign that would be considered a rather major score for a start up franchise. Hyman would probably play top-6 at either LW or RW and wear a letter, where Andersen would be that franchise #1 goaltender like Marc-Andre Fleury was to the Golden Knights.

    Depending on who else is signed and traded between now and then, looks like it could be Holl
