With the Waiver Draft list finalized...Draft for your team!

Play GM and draft two players from the Waiver Draft to hopefully help your favorite team!

...Or, make an "all-available" list.

I'd personally wouldn't mind the Stars snatching Jeff Heerema from the Rangers and Todd Simpson from the Yotes.

Others that would slightly interest me are: Brian Boucher, Chris Therien and Jim van der Meer..

While you're at it, tell us who you would expose from your protected list to make room for these acquisitions.

As a Ducks fan, I wouldn't want my team to take any of the exposed players.

For the Caps, I'd like to see Mattias Timmander and Mike Motteau.Both are relatively cheap and better than the drub we have on the blueline now.I'm very high on Mottau also...

Expose: Doig and Joel Kiwi.

You mean Pete Vandermeer Jim's brother?

Jimmy Vandermeer is penciled into the Flyers Top Six ahead of Seidenberg and Woywitka and didn't need to be protected anyways. And if he did need to be protected there's no chance the Flyers would have left him unprotected.

I would take nobody if I were the Canucks' GM. I would have interest in Jeff Hereema, but there I wouldn't want to expose anyone to get him.

One thing I like is the absence of Pierre Turgeon...Armstrong is smart enough to know that no-one will claim him and protecting him only improves his confidence.

Claude Lemieux ain't going anywhere, though...

now that pothier is exempt, i believe the senators have the luxury of grabbing a player and only losing shane hnidy.

i think grabbing giroux and losing hnidy is a great trade-off.
keefe is another one that i like, but we dont have room for him. would be nice to have them grab green for ish and giggles.

not sure if this is the reason, but my feeling is that a lot of teams are trying to "sneak" some of these guys through by using the waiver draft. the thing is, it's easier to pass a guy through during the waiver draft than it is during the season. i'll use the bruins as my example- they left zdenek kutlak exposed, who by all accounts is having a very strong camp. he's young, relatively inexpensive and talented. if the b's decide to send kutlak down at some point, he'd have to clear waivers due to his experience level. so, by leaving him unprotected during this draft, i think they increase their odds of keeping him. if he gets picked, you took a chance and got burned. if not, you can shuttle him to the minors without incident. just my take on this...

I wouldn't mind Atlanta making a move for Bicek or Bednar. Drop Vigier to make room.

I'd be surprised if DiPenta makes it through without getting claimed.

Pierre Turgeon is an exception because he has been put on waivers earlier this year. Has nothing to dow with Turgeon's confidence or what not. I'm sure he would have been exposed simply for that fact they already know that no one will pick him.

keeping in mind that Poile has already said he wants to add a backup goalie and another defenseman:
McClennan
and
Trnka.

these are keeping salary in mind...and Poile protected some people that will never play for us, anyway..so...
expose any of:
flaherty(if we get a goalie)
or
any of: hubacek, skrbek, cisar

As a Habs fan I would hope Gainey takes a long look at grabbing Todd Harvey if only for grit and hitting up front and drop Audette who should have been exposed in the first place. That and pray night and day someone, anyone takes Traverse.

Exposing Cameron wouldn't protect Clemmensen. Lou would have to expose Schwab. Given their camps so far. Clemmensen over Schwab might not be such a bad idea. Or is that what you meant?

Dude, who you kidding. Lemieux is more done then Bobby Orr and is already contemplating retirement. Never mind his rediculous 3 million salary attached to his old, prone and "Ôlovetotakebadpenaltiestohurtmyownteamincrucialsi tuations" body..

He's aaaaaaall yours.. we'll even pay the travelcosts..

I wouldn't be surprised to see Bicek go. He got good exposure during the playoffs and proved that he isn't a defensive liability despite his size. I almost hope he does get picked up, he's been working so long to get into this league, he definatly deserves a shot.

Giroux, ehh. I like him, but unlike Bicek, I don't think he's proven anything at the NHL level. Still, I could see a team with a horrendous defense core taking a chance with him.

I don't see anyone picking up Clemmenson, he's not ready for the NHL yet.

Don't understand the logic as a caps fan. I'd much rather have Simpson than either of these guys, and I only think we need 1 more solid dman. Simpson would effectively replace Klee and Eminger should replace Kiwi relative to last year. That's a big improvement in my opinion.

Witt Eminger
Gonchar Boumer
Simpson Berry/Kiwi/Yonkman depending on many variables

Not good, but not terrible.

Note for everyone else, the Caps have Glen Metropolit and Andreas Salomonsson on their protected list. Neither of these players figure into the Caps' future, so they've put themselves in a position to pick up two players*.

*Mad props to Battleship
