Hypothetical Expansion Draft: Who do we protect?
 
Let's have some fun! I saw this on the Preds board, I think. So let's just assume there is another Expansion Draft and SFY desperately sent you a text message asking for your list: Who do we protect?

Expansion Draft rules:
  • Each team may protect 1G+5D+9F or 2G+3D+7F.
  • First and second year pros (as well as unsigned draft picks) are exempt from the Expansion Draft.

Protected:
Lecavalier
St. Louis
Stamkos
Purcell
Malone
Pyatt
Thompson
Tyrell
Hall
Brewer
Carle
Hedman
Lee
Mikkelsson
Lindback

Unprotected:
Garon
Crombeen
Pouliot
Wyman
Bergeron
Salo
Ohlund (Injured, so I doubt an expansion team would, or even could, claim him, otherwise, one of Lee or Mikkelsson gets exposed)

Connolly, Brown, and the gang are all safe as they'd be in their first two seasons.

Hall gets protected over Wyman as Hall would probably be of more use immediately to an expansion team than Wyman.

I find it hard to justify to myself why we would protect players who have never dressed a game for the Tampa Bay Lightning. (other than in goal, as the hierarchy is a lot more clear)
