Bob McKenzie: All teams except the Vegas Golden Knights have a trade/waiver freeze starting Saturday June 17th at 2:00 PM CT.
Teams have to submit their protected lists on Saturday June 17th by 4:00 PM CT.

Teams can make deals with Vegas, and only Vegas, starting on June 18th at 9:00 AM CT.

The trade/waiver freeze ends on Thursday June 22nd at 7:00 AM CT.


Rumor of another trade with Vegas.
Sources around the NHL have indicated to The Dispatch that the Blue Jackets have reached agreement with the Vegas Golden Knights on a trade that will be announced during the expansion draft Wednesday in Las Vegas. With this trade the Blue Jackets will pay dearly to dissuade the Golden Knights from taking Anderson, Korpisalo or one of the veteran defensemen — Jack Johnson or David Savard — that they would have exposed.

The Jackets are believed to be trading this year’s first-round draft pick (No. 24 overall) and a prospect (not Pierre-Luc Dubois or Sonny Milano) to Vegas for assurances that the Golden Knights will select either left wing Matt Calvert, center William Karlsson or defenseman Ryan Murray.

Vegas’ acquisition of the contract of injured veteran forward David Clarkson ($5.25 million salary cap hit) may also be part of the deal.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen would not comment on his club’s protected list or any possible trades. Las Vegas general manager George McPhee has been asked by the NHL to keep all trades under wraps until the roster of the league’s 31st franchise is revealed in a made-for-TV production Wednesday.



Lebrun also mentioned as of now Ottawa and the Wild, have no agreement with Vegas not to take certain players.

Grubauer or Schmidt, are the probable Vegas pick from Washington.

The only interesting parts of the expansion protection lists for the Stars is seeing Johns protected over Oleksiak, Roussel protected over Eakin, and Nichushkin protected.

Ultimately, there isn't a guy on the unprotected list I'd worry about losing to Vegas.

Did we protect Eakin's leadership at least?

Yeah, our list is actually exactly what common sense would dictate.

Other teams, tho... not so much. Ottawa left their #2 d-man dangling. Detroit protected Howard over Mzarek, who a year ago was their undisputed #1 starter and the future of the franchise. James Neal is out there, too, as well as that rookie who scored 30 goals for Florida.

The absolute best is the Blues using a protection slot on Ryan Reeves, tho.

Heika said the Stars have no trades in place with Vegas.

It's also an odd rumor to make up.

Its especially weird because there are like six quality goalies available.

But there's nothing wrong with wishing your dreams would come true.

Ideally, Nill is going to have Vegas take Kari off our hands, and in exchange we send them Eakin for future considerations.

Blolz.

They also seem to think that adding a 20-goal scorer is going to solve all their offensive issues.

Drouin looks to be pretty good. I bet he puts up some very nice goal totals this year.

I'm expecting them to lose Janmark to Vegas. Eakin and Kari are overpriced crap. Sorry.

Looks like there are a fuckload of trades that will all be announced at once:

https://sports.yahoo.com/vegas-expansio ... 40621.html

I'm 60% that it'll be Hamhuis, 35% Eakin, 5% Other.

Dallas had two guys they could have protected, and they coughed up one and they protected the other one. We didn't know which one so that was, I wouldn't say it was a surprise. It was either going to be (Cody) Eakin or (Stephen) Johns going to be protected and they protected Johns.
