In the last expansion draft, first and second year pros were both exempt from being selected.

I did a similar project a year or two ago to determine who an expansion team would likely have available to them, and the pickings were extremely slim. You have to remember that these drafts have been done in the offseason before the unrestricted free agency period starts, so pending UFA's do not need to be protected. That really dilutes the talent pool.

I remember Bernier and Neuvirth were my goalies and the forward and defensive corps were terrible. I think Brian Lee was the #1 defenseman...
