Washington Capitals rumors: Jay Beagle and the NHL Expansion Draft

Washington Capitals rumors: Jay Beagle and the NHL Expansion Draft

Without making a deal before Saturday's afternoon trade freeze went into effect, the Rangers submitted a protection list of 11 players to the National Hockey League and NHLPA for the expansion draft that will be formally revealed - along with those of 29 other teams - at 10 a.m. Sunday.

All 30 existing teams must submit their protected list for the upcoming expansion draft by Saturday afternoon, which has made for a week of trade chatter and speculation as GMs jockey for position. However, maybe making Beagle available would at least make Vegas general manager George McPhee think twice.

Vegas will have the opportunity to select 30 players in a combination with at least 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders.

Reilly Smith is someone who has played for Gerard Gallant as well and could be a possibility if the Golden Knights are trying to make the cap floor.

The Blackhawks could technically not lose a player in the expansion draft if they worked out a deal with the Knights.

Indeed, the next few days could get even more interesting around the National Hockey League.

The NHL expansion draft and Vegas' initial roster will be unveiled during Wednesday's televised NHL Awards Show.

The Pen's sniper James Neal, on the other hand, is within the grasp of Vegas because the Nashville Predators has too many good defense players to keep.

"Whatever you want to give us has to be better than what we can claim from that club", McPhee told reporters in Las Vegas on Sunday. Talk to McPhee. Want a player from another team's unprotected list? "Then we're going to go to that club and say: 'We have interest in this player, there's another club that has interest in this player".

McPhee has said he's had contact with all teams and was expected to have several trades in place. Teams could also protect any combination of eight skaters. Anaheim wants to keep defensemen Sami Vatanen and Josh Manson, Columbus wants to keep goalie Joonas Korpisalo, forward Josh Anderson, and defenseman Jack Johnson, and NY wants to keep forwards Josh Bailey and Casey Cizikas.

The situation on defense was made far more clear when Gorton chose to buy out the three years remaining on veteran defenseman Dan Giradi's contract, making the three protected defensemen Ryan McDonagh, Marc Staal and Nick Holden. Those side deals won't be announced until Wednesday night, leaving nearly a full four days of pondering and guessing why Player A is exposed or why Player B was protected.

"I was fortunate ... but there was that moment when you wonder who is going to be protected or unprotected", the Calgary Flames assistant general manager said recently.

"It forces us that we're in a situation that we felt that this could happen", Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion said.

NY bought out the final three years of 33-year-old Dan Girardi's contract, and Colorado the final year of 37-year-old Francois Beauchemin's deal.

Thornton had a cap hit of $6.8 million and Marleau $6.7 million in the last of three-year deals. If you're confused by the rules of the draft, they can be found here. Sure, he could sign a free agent July 1, or he could take advantage of this rare circumstance.
