Assuming the expansion draft was held this summer, this is my list:

Two goaltenders, three defensemen, and seven forwards
- Anderson
- Lehner
- Karlsson
- Methot
- Cowen
- Spezza
- Michalek
- Neil
- Turris
- Condra
- Smith
- Greening
(I left Alfie off the list because who knows if he'll retire or not. If Alfie doesn't retire, move Greening to the "Unprotected" list)

F: Latendresse (UFA), Regin, O'Brien, Daugavins, Dziurzynski, Da Costa, Petersson, Hoffman,
D: Phillips, Gonchar (UFA), Lundin (UFA), Weircioch, Benoit, Gryba, Borowiecki,
G: Bishop (though I assume we would trade him before leaving him unprotected)

Silfverberg, Zibanejad, Stone, all our kids without 2 pro years yet (Noesen, Puempel, etc...) + unsigned draft picks.

At the end of the day, it would suck to lose one of our unprotected guys, but I don't think it would leave us with too big a hole to fill. An easy-ish UFA signing would replace him, IMO.
