Why are people assuming Vegas wanted Ennis or Moulson?

This could be part of a deal, Vegas has to take one of our players. They may have wanted Larsson.

I'm sure there would be a good explanation.
The only justifiable reason I can think of would be that his rehab is going seriously wrong and his future as an NHL is in question. Even then I would've protected a plug like Des over Ennis.

One other justifiable reason might be they're agreeing to take Ennis, Gorges, Bogosian, and Moulson off our hands in exchange for exposing Larsson. That might do it for me. Might.

Why couldn't it be part of a D trade? Why would Vegas want anything we don't want?

But really NHL network probably doesn't know what they're are talking about
Well then let Vegas have Ullmark so we can keep the more valuable player in Larsson.

I'm not assuming Vegas wants either of those guys. They both suck and are on ****** contracts, Larsson is cheap and useful. Exposing him makes no sense, unless they have some sort of deal to take on one of Ennis or Moulson, or if his wrist is fubar. Regardless, I hope that's just some moronic "guess" at our protection list.

I'd say the odds are definitely in your favor. Bogosian will almost certainly get exposed over Beaulieu.

Sorry, but that's a pipe dream now. Ennis has shown next to nothing for going on 2 years. His speed and hands are shot. If we kept him, it would be amazing if he returned to form, but I don't see it happening.

Our Goalie depth makes Ullmark a much more valuable piece than what he should be.

Why couldn't it be part of a trade deal?

Why are we booing? TSN's show was scheduled for 10:30 anyway, so 0 surprises here. And if you are just booing the NHL...who did you expect to make them official, the pope?

It could be. We don't know. Hell this may not even turn out to be the real list, but if it is, it's odd to see Ennis protected and Larsson exposed.

I am not expecting a freaking show. They will probably are just going to post them online as a "reveal". If Brettman is announcing them that will be hilarious. Way to make a big fuss out of nothing. Many of the people on the unprotected list would actually be protected already through a deal with Vegas anyway so it's kinda silly to make this announcement today into a massive show lol
