Much to Early Expansion Draft Mock

2021-03-25

Well folks we are about a month away from trade deadline which will start the roster freeze for the Seattle expansion draft coming up this summer.  With everyone losing two players/prospects I wondered who this team could possibly look like. So I came up with my first why too early expansion draft roster for Seattle. Yes this can go a million different ways as we dont know a lot about the new Seattle GM maybe they like youth maybe they like vets and want to win right away, maybe hes a big Habs fan and would take Joel Armia over say Jake Virtanen or hes teh biggest Sabres fan and to be more cap complient takes Tage Thompson over Skinner( I hate Tage Thompson.)

Ill be the first to admit that im impatient and I went more vet heavy where im sure most of you would go a lot younger than I did.

Some thigns to note;

There were a lot more 7/7 than i anticipated, I thought there would be more teams who have 3/4 real nice prospects but not enough to protect 7. Want to say 8 teams 7/7

I used basically the 9/2 or 7/7, there are a few teams who it woudl make sense to do the 5/3/1 format like Det comes to mind (bonino prob ecomes the pick and becomes 2C)

I didnt go as deep into the prospect "left" as I would if I was the Seattle GM. Looked NJ and changed this afternoon to Bryson since he can create

This team will be a playoff team and honestly the "AHL roster" could fight for a playoff spot as well

There were a lot of good goalies available young old all could easily start and perform well

I thought I was going to have a hard time hitting the floor but came in a little over, this can be solved by a trade or two which I would do or simiply take someone else where I took Skinner or say Kyle Palmeri.

Keep in mind rerates and creations could drastically change the list

Jani Mäkäräinen Yeah, and In NHL they need to use one of those protection spots for guys with NTC.

Nice read! good job... for a team not aiming for the playoffs that will be easier, they can make a few moves before the Trade deadline, but when you go all in, that`s a different story.

Nice job Dan! Good look at the upcoming expansion draft. It'll be interesting to see what protection lists each GM chooses and how the new Seattle GM will approach things.
