It will be interesting to see how they play it.

They could build a blueline that allows them to compete faster than many expect.

And given that Vatanen is signed for three more seasons and Dumba is still an RFA after 17-18, they could be core guys for them, too.

Expect carrier unless there is a side deal in place.

My shot in the dark is Carrier is taken but Bogosian will also be a VGN by the end of the weekend.

My 2nd choice is Moulson because of their personal relationship and Moulson can score plus mentorship abilities.
Big, physical, and can skate will always make GMs excited. I wouldn't be surprised.

I voted Carrier because I don't understand how Ennis was valued more than him on the protection list, so something must be happening to make LVGK leave Ullmark with BUF. Hence also the reason Ullmark was signed 1-way. i.e., as a "poison pill" for the LVGK (in lieu of BUF being able to protect Ullmark), so if LVGK does reneg on a speculated deal to take Carrier, but instead takes Ullmark anyway, it will hurt LVGK a little more.

I'm hoping they DON'T take Bogosian.

I hope they don't as well. Moulson would easily be the best scenario for us.

I think Moulson is the one that want taken and maybe Carrier gets included if they take Moulson

They probably made a deal that they would expose Carrier if they don't touch Ullmark.

Not that it means much, but no one in the national media has really said anything about Carrier.

Its all been Bogosian, Kulikov, and a tiny bit of Ullmark talk.

Yeah, it's interesting reading the mock expansion drafts on Vegas subforum here.

If I had to measure it, for every 10 posts with selections/lineups... seems 6 take Ullmark, 3 take Bogosian, 1 takes Carrier.

Obviously you can't read too much into it, there could be deals or agreements in place. And these are just fans talking. But that seems to be the way the winds are blowing.

With where he was drafted, his age, and the possibility of being a reclamation project, I think Bogosian is the pick.

Not surprising, since Carrier would be the smartest pick.

The national media almost entirely lacks a deep understanding of each team. It doesn't say much if they talk about known quantities while disregarding a player with 8 NHL points who was never a blue chip prospect. NHL teams on the other hand have teams of pro and amateur scouts, so they are certainly aware of Carrier, whether they'd take him or not.

The only may Moulson is taken is if McPhee asks him and he is ok with it.

Carrier is going to be the pick. That's why we protected Ennis to save Ullmark

The thing about Kulikov or any other pending UFA...if LV talks with that player and the player says he wants to sign there, why not just wait until after July 1st so they can also select another player from that same team?

Is there a clause that prohibits LV from doing this?

My dream was LV taking Ennis. After that Moulson, and then Bogosian, and then Gorges. I'd have Gorges higher up the list but he's only got this season left.

I keep envisioning side deals where LV takes one of those contracts, but my master plans never come to fruition so I just expect Carrier to get taken, or maybe Ullmark.
