Prospects and players that would not need to clear waivers would not need to be protected as their ineligible (historically) for expansion drafts.
As pointed out, because of the pending UFAs the Flyers could protect virtually their entire roster.
Wellwood, Rinaldo, Gervais and AHL players would be the only players exposed.
As Timonen really wouldn't be part of the equation, I think the only question is whether you protect Gustafsson as the 5th D over Pronger.
Would Pronger get selected?
