GroupThink: Which Forwards Do We Protect in the SBN Mock Expansion Draft?

New, comments


Mile High Hockey is currently participating in establishing a fake protected list for the SBN Mock Expansion Draft. Craig Anderson will be our lone goalie protected and we're currently in the middle of voting to establish which 5 defensemen to protect. Our final task it to pick which 9 forwards get protected.

For starters, there are 12 forwards that are eligible for the draft. We can protect 9 of them. For simplicities sake, I'm going to arbitrarily decide that Stastny, Hejduk, Duchene, O'Reilly, Galiardi, Mueller and Stewart are automatic protects, so it really boils down to choosing 2 more forwards to protect. The SBN polling system only allows one choice, but I think we can make it work. There are four forwards on the poll; vote for the player you think we should NOT protect. The two players with the most votes will be left unprotected, along with David Koci (executive decision there).

So vote early and...uh, vote once. Again, the two forwards with the most votes will be left unprotected and at risk of getting drafted by Quebec or *gulp* Winnipeg.
