Who to protect in an Expansion draft

I found this article on another board, posted by LadyStanley. With rumors that the NHL is considering putting two new franchises in Canada, the article looks at the last expansion draft and considers which players might be protected on each team.

The writer does not seem to realize 26 yr old MacDonald, plays 1st pairing mins for the isles and is very important to them.

NHL expansion draft would cause tough decisions
By Adam Proteau | The Hockey News – Thu, Nov 29, 2012 3:40 PM EST

Back then, the league’s 28 teams were presented with a choice: protect one goalie, five defensemen and nine forwards or protect two goalies, three defensemen and seven forwards.

New York Islanders (one goalie)
Forwards: Bailey, Grabner, Tavares, Martin, Moulson, Niederreiter, Nielsen, Okposo, Ullstrom,
Defensemen: Carkner, Hamonic, Streit, Visnovsky,
Goalies: Nabokov
