We're going to add a team to the NHL, and they need to have players. Here are the rules for the Expansion Draft:
Each existing NHL club will submit a protected list to the NHL in which it may protect either: (a) up to five defensemen, nine forwards and one goaltender; or (b) up to three defensemen, seven forwards and two goaltenders.
Each club must expose for claim at least the following players who meet the experience requirements indicated below:
ONE GOALTENDER: For clubs protecting one goaltender, no experience requirement. For clubs protecting two goaltenders, either 10 NHL games played in the last season or 25 NHL games played over the last two seasons. A goaltender must have played in a minimum of 31 minutes in a game before it would qualify as a game played for these purposes. Games played include regular season and playoff games.
ONE EXPERIENCED DEFENSEMAN: Either 40 NHL games played in the last season or 70 NHL games played over the last two seasons. Games played include regular season and playoff games.
TWO EXPERIENCED FORWARDS: Either 40 NHL games played in the last season or 70 NHL games played over the last two seasons. Games played include regular season and playoff games.
Players who are exempt from the Expansion Draft are: all first and second-year pros(meaning AHL/NHL), and those not under contract (prospects).
Let's get an idea of who each team would and wouldn't protect. Please post the team name, format you're using(1G, 5D, 9F or 2G, 3D, 7F) and include the players you will protect, those that you won't protect, and those that are exempt. From there, we'll try to field a 20 man roster and see how it looks.
