If there were to be a NHL Expansion Draft for this season, which players would your team protect?


- You can either choose to protect one goaltender, five defensemen and nine forwards or two goaltenders, three defensemen and seven forwards.
- First- and second-year NHL-players are already exempted from beeing claimed.http://baseball-fever.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=39858&d=1208097995

Good thread idea. Let's see

Philadelphia Flyers:

One Goaltender: Martin Biron
Defensemen: Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn, Randy Jones, Ryan Parent (although he would already be protected, but what can I say, the Flyers have no other d-men worth saving), Steve Eminger
Forwards: Mike Richards, Daniel Briere (whimp), Simon Gagne, Jeff Carter, Joffrey Lupul, Scott Hartnell, Mike Knuble, Scottie Upshall, and Riley Cote (Well mainly because Downie is already protected)
