Varly

EJ
O'Bryne
Hejda
Wilson
Hunwick (I might catch flack for this but he actually played better than O'Brien and I'm not sold on Zanon)

Duchene
O'Reilly
Stastny
PAP
Jones
McGinn
Downie
Hejduk
McCleod (I guess we don't really have anyone else to protect if you go with 9 forwards)

We kind of luck out because we don't have to protect Landeskog as he is on a ELC whcih gives us an extra forward to protect.

I wouldn't cry if we lost Giggy, I like him as a backup and mentor but he is getting up there in age and with our prospect pool of goalies, I'd be fine with one of Aitto or Pickard getting 20 or so games behind Varly or even finding a cheap vet replacement to keep those 2 in the AHL.

So basically an expansion team would get a chance at O'Brien, Kobasew. Mitchell, Zanon and Giggy. The only one I'd see for sure getting plucked is Giggy. Then O'Brien and Zanon would be possible casualties.
