All talk, few trades before NHL's expansion roster freeze

All talk, few trades before NHL's expansion roster freeze

If Fleury lands in Vegas, he would be the instant face of the team and the first starting goaltender in Golden Knights history.

The Columbus Dispatch first reported the news.

"We have an idea of who we're going to protect, but I'm not going to let anybody know what those players are because we're still talking to different teams and we still might make a move", Canucks GM Jim Benning said.

They must select 14 forwards, nine defencemen and three goalies, while the remaining four players can be of any position.

For the Washington Capitals, there was no suspense on Sunday morning, as The Post reported their protection list on Saturday afternoon.

The NHL released each team's protection lists on Sunday, revealing to all the talent the expansion franchise will be able to select, flip, or hold hostage for futures, as it gets set to make its selections on Wednesday.

The San Jose Sharks are a team in transition as they have gone as far as possible in the playoffs with this group of players. Goalie Jeff Glass is under contract for next season and fulfills the requirement for exposed goaltenders.

The Canes have 10 picks in the Entry Draft, so losing one to resolve the goalie situation would not be a huge hit.

Vegas will submit its picks Tuesday evening at 5 p.m., with the results announced Wednesday night during the league's annual awards ceremony in Sin City.

The next juggernaut in the National Hockey League is the Edmonton Oilers as they have the right mix of young and veteran talent that acquired the necessary playoff experience this spring to make a memorable Stanley Cup run in the near future.

Trump hands to Pentagon troop level decisions on Afghanistan
Earlier this year, the Pentagon was considering a request for roughly 3,000 more troops, mainly for training and advising. The U.S. now has 8,400 troops in Afghanistan.

McPhee wasn't prepared to discuss individual players when specifically asked about Fleury, but noted there were no surprises based on the numerous mock drafts the Golden Knights conducted over the past few months. Brodziak and Jaskin are players the Blues would certainly love to retain, but could be nice pieces for the Golden Knights to snag to fill immediate roles on the inaugural team. Anaheim has reportedly already made a deal with Vegas to send them extra players or draft picks in exchange for leaving a player like Josh Manson or Jakob Silfverberg untouched.

Some of the bigger names that could head to Nevada: former Hurricanes captain Eric Staal, who was left unprotected by the Wild, well-traveled sniper James Neal from Nashville, Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian, and one of Ottawa's Bobby Ryan or Marc Methot.

Second, clearing Fleury's $5.75 million off the salary cap, with Pittsburgh not needing to trade Fleury and take back a salary would be a huge and very rare opportunity to have a lot of cap room heading into free agency.

The NHL's roster freeze kicks in today at 3pm ET, upon which teams can not finalize trades with one another until June 22 at 8am ET.

Andy Andreoff, left wing: Eligible to become a restricted free agent July 1. Smirnov finished last season with 47 points in 39 games to the tune of 28 assists and 19 goals.
