I don't think prospects with no NHL time, need to be protected.
If you look at the players selected in the article, you don't see teams protecting highly rated prospects like Nail/Strome/Galchenuk who have not reached the NHL.

Teams are protecting 15 players who have had at least 1 NHL season. Isles are protecting 20 yr old Nino, who's credited with playing 64 total NHL games.
