So the other day I was on Twitter and I stumbled on an interesting article by a great hockey website called ‘The Hockey Writers’. Anyway this article was about what will the Panthers do in the expansion draft. Who will they protect and expose? Here is who they think the Panthers will protect:
Goalie: James Reimer
Defense: Aaron Ekblad, Keith Yandle (Required), Jason Demers (However they say we have to resign Pysyk and Petrovic otherwise Ekblad or Demers would be exposed)
Forwards: Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Jussi Jokinen, Vincent Trocheck, Reilly Smith, Nick Bjugstad, (The Final Spot is between Sceviour, Marchessault and McKenzie)
They predict that Petrovic will end up moving to Vegas.
Now I agree with everything they say here. Vegas is likely not to take the chance on Luongo or Jagr and don’t want to take a Minor League Guy. I predict also that Alex Petrovic will be suiting up for the Las Vegas Name to Be Determined in 2017. Basically everything in the artcle I agree with. Here is the link to the article:
