The only exemptions last time around were first and second-year pros (NHL, AHL, etc.) and unsigned draft picks. For example, the Devils had to protect Colin White in 2000 despite him not playing an NHL game yet. He played three seasons in the AHL up until that point. For giggles, this is the Rangers list in 2000:
