No surprises in Hurricanes' expansion draft list

No surprises in Hurricanes' expansion draft list

Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee will be a busy man for the next few days. One of the teams that has reportedly shipped their first-rounder to Vegas is the Columbus Blue Jackets.

This is a collaboration between Vegas Golden Knights writers Thomas Conroy and Shayna Goldman analyzing the 2017 Expansion Draft by each division.

Several players listed - namely Barkov, Huberdeau, Trocheck, Ekblad, Petrovic, Yandle and Reimer - come as no surprise; but some fans were shocked to see forwards Jonathan Marchessault, who led team with 30 goals in 2016-17 season, or Reilly Smith, 37 points in this past season, left unprotected.

National Hockey League teams have two options for the expansion draft: protect eight skaters and a goalie, or protect seven forwards, three defensemen and a goalie.

Inglewood City Council to Vote on New Arena for Clippers
The old Forum is right next to the Rams stadium project meaning Inglewood would have two state of the art arenas in the same city. The 18,000- to 20,000-seat arena would be fully financed by Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, sources said.

"That's really one of the things we wanted to leverage", Treliving said.

The following unprotected players are among the possible candidates for expansion draft selection by the Vegas Knights: Cody Eakin, Curtis McKenzie, Dan Hamhuis, Patrik Nemeth or Jamie Oleksiak. Sunday, June 18: Protection lists are approved and distributed to teams and the NHL Players' Association. But one foot is out the door, and the other foot seems stuck in cement some of the time as teams beat him to pucks that last season he would have swallowed up and got moving in the other direction. In exchange, McPhee was intent on stockpiling draft picks to help spur the franchise's growth through youth.

Tanner Pearson, left wing: Just signed a new four-year, $15 million contract.

Awards ceremony, expansion draft unveiling, T-Mobile Arena, 8 p.m. "Every team in this league has a chance to protect their roster". McPhee is willing to negotiate with any and all teams willing to give up something to keep a certain player.

USA inflation falls in May on dip in gasoline prices
The monthly core CPI was restrained by decreases in the prices of apparel, airline fares, communication and medical care services. The so-called core CPI , which strips out food and energy costs, rose 0.1 per cent in May after a similar gain in April.

The Vegas Golden Knights have a great opportunity to make life hard for their Pacific Division rivals. How? This might be more significant than some others if Nashville is indeed running into a brick wall trying to sway McPhee from taking someone of Neal's stature, especially since the deadline to trade with teams other than the Golden Knights already passed.

While the Blues must be prepared to lose one of their assets, it's possible that they could have some say in the proceedings, even beyond the protected list. The only deals other teams can make during the freeze are deals involving the Knights.

The expansion draft process begins Saturday when teams submit their draft protection lists, with the names released to the public the following day.

That's a bit further down the line and it remains to be seen how it will play out, but for expansion purposes Fleury pretty much took out all the drama or unknown, when he nearly literally "took one for the team" to open himself up for the expansion draft. "They only need a couple, and there's opportunities for trades from that perspective".

No interest in renegotiating Paris climate deal; McKenna
As a result, the USA said it would not join those sections of the communique on climate and multilateral development banks. In other words, the rest of the world should go ahead and implement the Paris accord.
