I would prefer to keep Johns over Eakin or Roussel, but so far Johns hasn't exactly proven himself to be any more important to this operation than Ivan Vishnevskiy.

Vishnevskiy got us stuck with Kari. *f-bomb* that guy.

Kari's greatest crime to the franchise was being good enough during those ugly seasons to keep the Stars from ever getting the top three draft pick(s) they should have received for icing an AHL team.

Johns has shown what he is capable of, at times. He is a big body, first off, but he also skates well and gets the puck up and out. He is skilled. He also has broken down, been out of place and made mistakes. Hopefully he can be improved. We can't have all gazelles on D, we need a bull to stand up to the bigger forwards. He's been way better than Oleksiak or Nemeth. Is he potential trade bait? Yes for a quality return, but I'd like to see how he pans out.

Meh. It's not like Vegas is salivating to nab the worst team's goalies.
Being left unprotected does not mean automatic selection. I bet neither of them go anywhere.

Johns was our best PKer, too. I'd protect him and expose Oleksiak (if Vegas was choosing between him and Hamhuis, they'd pick Hamhuis).

Hamhuis is the only defenseman we have whose balls have dropped. Probably need to keep him around, even if he was a little underwhelming this year. For what it's worth, I thought he was much better in the second half of the season.

I believe Oleksiak will be exposed. It's one left to protect of Roussel, Johns, Eakin, or Hamhuis. Oleksiak and Nemeth are both rfas and will be exposed. I think.

Edit. Two to protect.

Holy *poo poo*. I didn't realize that Pronger is technically still an active player. Wow.
