Which free agents should the Vegas Golden Knights sign?

The protected lists will be revealed publicly on Sunday morning at 7 a.m., while the Golden Knights' roster will be unveiled at the NHL Awards show on Wednesday, June 21 in Las Vegas. But probably not. Mock drafts have Fleury as an obvious choice for Vegas with the veteran backstop reportedly waiving his no-movement clause by Pittsburgh's request. As there's a number of top defensemen exposed such as Anaheim's Sami Vatanen and Ottawa's Marc Methot.

In about 30 minutes, the National Hockey League is set to approve and release protected lists for all 30 already-established National Hockey League teams. The Capitals could negotiate a side deal with Vegas General Manager George McPhee, perhaps trading a pick or a prospect to the Golden Knights for McPhee to avoid selecting Schmidt.

The goal behind this is to allow the Golden Knights to get a sense of whether or not they will be able to sign a free agent before going ahead and using a pick on them in the Expansion Draft.

Q: Should the Hurricanes trade one of their young defensemen for a top-line offensive player? "Still some time between now and tomorrow when we have to submit our list, so things can change between now and then", Wilson said on Friday. "We're exploring it, trying to do everything we can to make the best decision for this franchise".

Deadline for players to agree to waive no-movement clauses, 5 p.m. The Penguins instead protected Matt Murray a week after the second-year goalie led them to win their second consecutive championship.

If you wish to make a change on your card more than a year before your renewal date, you must pay a replacement fee. Shupe, an OR resident, is an Army veteran who was designated male at birth (DMAB) but began to transition in 2013.

The Predators elected to protect a fourth defenseman that exposed Neal, a nine-time 20-goal-scorer, including 23 this past season. Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek and Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers are both available, as is Antti Raanta of the New York Rangers. They have one unrestricted free agent in Scottie Upshall and three restricted free agents in Colton Parayko, Magnus Paajarvi and Nail Yakupov. But it's unlikely the two would consider joining an expansion team at this point in their respective careers.

That means there will be some notable players the Blues - and the other 29 National Hockey League teams - have made available for Vegas to select, barring any trades made between the Golden Knights and such teams.

The Fleury-to-Vegas speculation ignited what is sure to be a chaotic two-week period in which the expansion and entry drafts are expected to be accompanied by a flurry of trades that will, in the end, fill the roster of McPhee's squad.

The Canes protected goalie Scott Darling, forwards Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner, Victor Rask, Elias Lindholm, Teuvo Teravainen, Brock McGinn and Phil Di Giuseppe; and defensemen Justin Faulk, Ryan Murphy and Trevor Carrick.

The Hawks would protect Jurco as their seventh forward because they want to shed the contract of Kruger, who carries an approximate $3.1 million cap hit the next two seasons. He did not say if that might be an option with McPhee and the Golden Knights.
