You could probably leave Kimmo unprotected as well, since he would likely retire rather than report to a hypothetical expansion team. The same logic might apply to Jagr, though I'm less certain there.

IMO, you take the 2/3/7 option:

Bryz
Bob

Mez
Coburn
?

Roo
JVR
Voracek
Simmonds
Briere*
Talbot
Jagr / Hartnell

Schenn, Couturier, Read should all be safe, as noted above.



* How do NMC clauses work here? Are they nullified? Does the team have to protect them?
