Vegas holds trade cards during expansion draft window

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came amid the final week of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The deal was struck just before National Hockey League teams were required to submit their protected lists for the Vegas Golden Knights expansion draft. As it turns out, the biggest news was that the list was exactly as predicted.

What will the Hawks' protection list look like?

The next few days will be filled with speculation, rumors and a boat-load of garbage.

Yes, its a bad gambling pun, but its all true. He did not say if that might be an option with McPhee and the Golden Knights.

First and second-year talents are exempt from the draft, which for the Bruins means players like Brandon Carlo and Frank Vatrano do not need to be protected. "I've been certainly talking to every team and will be talking to Las Vegas prior to our submission time tomorrow".

While that's all surely going on, it's the expansion draft that is on the top of Doug Wilson's mind at the moment. Is there a player that another team leaves exposed that the Stars will acquire from Vegas? For example - and this is only an example - if the Sharks would like the Golden Knights to select Mikkel Boedker and his hefty contract, rather than someone else from their roster, they could sweeten the pot by offering further assets like a draft pick or a prospect.

Now that the lists have been revealed, Vegas has the opportunity to conduct talks with free agents, restricted and unrestricted.

Conditions are different from 2000 when teams lost two players to Columbus and Minnesota. However, if he continues that pace next season, extending him on another team friendly deal may not be possible.

The Knights can also choose from several others off the Stanley Cup champions' list including forwards Matt Cullen, Bryan Rust, Carl Hagelin and defenceman Trevor Daley. The work done by GM Ron Francis and his staff have allowed the Canes to enter this Expansion Draft period without any concerns.

Though he's not familiar with Housley, Beaulieu believes he's better suited to play in Buffalo as opposed to Montreal, which favored its defensemen playing a more rugged style. Marchand also begins an eight-year, team-friendly $6.125 million per season contract next season. He'd likely have a greater role with Vegas than he did with Carolina as well. Stempniak's production, style, and experience are easily replaceable.

Hurricanes: Carolina forward Teuvo Teravainen agreed to terms for a two-year deal worth more than $5.7 million.

What happens to Ward and Lack?

The league wanted the Knights to wait and be unveiled along with the other 30 teams next Tuesday as part of the new design with adidas. Some other teams are in chaos mode. Unlike interstate rival, Anaheim, that will lose young defenseman Sami Vatanen for nothing. He is the best available Canes player. And there are probably some teams that are saying, 'Hey we can do something with Vegas'.

The deal would give the Knights two first-round picks in Friday's Entry Draft in Chicago.
