Latest Expansion Draft Buzz
The Pittsburgh Penguins protected list for the expansion draft is as followed:
Key Forwards Exposed: Brandon Tanev, Jason Zucker, Zach Aston-Reese (RFA),
Buzz: The Top-5 was clear cut for months. No. 6 and No. 7 is a different story. Even at his age, Pittsburgh see’s Jeff Carter as part of their core for next season and some say Ron Hextall believes Carter has more hockey left in him than just this season (Don’t be shocked to see Carter agree to a one year extension). The Penguins rationale for protecting Jeff Carter, though, remains to be seen as the chances of Seattle selecting Carter were always thought to be minimal due to Carter’s age and his salary being so low for next season that he would just retire if selected by Seattle.
However, there were certainly some whispers last night that a few contenders in the East had spoken with Seattle about a side To read this insider news, subscribe to get “Inside Access”!

The Penguins, though, have been led to believe Jason Zucker and Zach-Aston Reese are stronger candidates at the forward position to be selected by Seattle than Tanev. We’ll see………
Key Defensemen Exposed: Marcus Pettersson, Cody Ceci (UFA)
Buzz: It wasn’t just the sixth and seventh forward spots that the organization wavered on until final 48 hours before the protected lost deadline. Who to protect as the third defenseman was not clear cut among the brass but the Penguins at the end of the day settled on Matheson over pending UFA Cody Ceci, a source says. Pittsburgh remains To read this insider news, subscribe to get “Inside Access”!
Buzz: There are no indications that protecting Casey DeSmith was much of any discussion. With Seattle already having their goaltending targets lined up, exposing Jarry was of little interest to the Penguins.

How does this shit get leaked ? If they have to send their list to the league it should go only to Gary Bettman sealed….I’M PIssed was recording everything too…oh well
I hate social media and the snitches and bitches that live there…
Why are you surprised? The players know ahead of time which means 20 other people already know. It’s not rocket science.
How is this all leaking out the draft isn’t until tonight ..I don’t get it
Fraud Price is NOT going to Seattle.
Damn, Kracken are taking Tanev. Fucking sucks.
It was confirmed?
For whatever reason, I can’t post YouTube links on here from ny phone, but search The Hockey Guy. 26 picks are supposedly in.
How does this get leaked…??? The draft isn’t until later this didn’t happen in the 2017 Vegas draft.
That sucks but we now have $10.3 million in cap space!! Hopefully Zucker and Petersson get moved soon..
I would rather have less space and Tanev back. They should have protected him and left Jarry exposed. No one in their right mind would have selected him.
Fuck how does this shit get leaked I don’t get it ! Espn who is covering the event has to be pissed it was on the ticker underneath the screen who took who…
Mark Giordano was selected by Seattle. I guess being a Captain comes with no loyalty from your team.
Larsson signs with Seattle, 4 yr, $4 million per.
He will be able to go at king donuts in Seattle
You seem to know all the donut places. You must be enormous.
I think penguins should go after Danault since he is UFA
He is a good pk guy works hard and can play good minutes on the 2nd line when our Russian leaves to his annual vacation come February – March
Danault solid player but he wants $5.5 for 6 years…..that is a bit much !
I have a bad feeling Tanev is going to Seattle.
Yeah I think so your right ! Mccann maybe going there too Toronto didn’t protect him after the trade.
Nhl tonight guys had there mock list today on the show.
One had Tanev going to Seattle, one had Zack Aston Reese going to Seattle, the other had Zucker going to Seattle so we shall see
I hope that the Penguins will get to work after the drafts (expansion & NHL).
The Flyers have added Ryan Ellis and are not done.. Is David Savard next ?
Th Islanders will do something that is Lou ! Whether that is Blake Coleman, Tarasenko, or even Gabriel Landescog Lou once to get the Islander over the hump..
Rangers have added Barclay Goodrow an they are surely not done….
Devils have added young , gritty, defenseman Ryan Graves
Bruins are going to go hard after Ryan Suter as I think wil the Crapitals..
We will see…
Who would’ve thought when it’s was Vegas expansion team penguins protected fraud murray
Now next expansion team and already fraud murray not protected sens chose
To protect gustavsson
And according to droolers here murray is the legit 2 times Stanley Cup winner
More proof he is a fraud
He is young and 2 time cup winner and team don’t want hm already as I said he won’t pass his 30 years old in the league
If you start for two Stanley Cup championship teams, you’re a legit two time Stanley Cup winner. Maf would tell you as much. He had a first row seat for both of them.
LOL!!!!! Montreal fans forgot what a Stanley Cup winning goalie looks like. Their last one was chased out of town and won two more in Colorado. Now all they have is a $10 million fraud who wants out.
Is that what you named your Big Boss Man pillow?
So does the DemocRATS
NHL has a story about a prospect being the first to come out as gay. Sorry, but Sid beat him to it when he took Carl Hagelin to the awards show a few years back….not that there is anything wrong with that.
Nice now npl can be obsessed with him too
The way he was for micheal Sam few years ago that he changed his name from npl10 to Sam
The Pens have a two yr window and they are just about done. If they are stuck with Jarry do they take a chance and go after Halak. Boston is not resigning him. He could be a calming vet presence in net and prob come cheap. Driedger Is all but signed by Seattle.
I agree Halak might be that solid veteran back up that we need to steady shaky ass Jarry..
Halak is always injured
We ready have our Russian that takes annual vacations we don’t need another one
So is Jarry and De Smith he will fit right in !
I think Montreal is going to pull a Tampa by sitting Fraud Price and Webber for the length of the season and if by some miracle they make the playoffs, both will suddenly be healed. I like how Price made himself available for Seattle and then announced he will need surgery like 2 days later. Let the scamming begin.
Something penguins couldve done more often when they had the Russian taking his annual vacation around feb-march I guess GMJR did not catch on
Learn the rules.
So ESPN is going to prepend they like hockey again and they are going to start with the expansion draft. After many, many long years of either bashing it, ignoring it or only bringing it up when someone gets suspended, now they are going to act like it’s theirs again. What a sham. As soon as this contract expires they will drop them again.
Well said ! Nbc, Nbcsn, Usa they made hockey personal and exciting. Espn had hockey before and they dropped the ball big time… I think Espn gas fur people that like hockey ? Linda Cohn, Steve Levy, Buccigrass, and the new guy that took over intentional talk Steve Nelson.
They better bring back Gary Thorne he was decent…
Don’t you have to be homeless and smell to live in Seattle
I’d give NPL’s last nut for the Kracken to take ZAR.
ZAR is a key figure on the PK but he is also a dime a dozen player, they will prob take Tanev, sadly.
Why did the Pens not protect Brock Jones!!!!! He was literally a legend at the CWS!!! AaaaHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Hey npl I just changed my car yesterday when are you coming to montreal so I can run over you
I wanna test their new feature apparently you can run over fat people and no damage to the car
Congrats on your new Cozy Coupe, chubster.
Is your “new” car funky stacked ?
Your a piece of work ! Thank god no one would protect your sorry ass..
He is a miserable fuckk
This puke chased away a lot of people from this site.
And he thinks his fat lives matter community will always protect him
To go to the Seattle game you need to park in CHAZ and Hope antifa doesn’t light your car on fire when you are in the building.
I think if price end up with Seattle krackheads
Fleury will go to Montreal
And donut boy here will be busy for a year with his new agenda
Trade away one fraud for another. The Montreal way!!! Almost 30 yrs now!
Hey asshole thanks to Crosby era you discover your hockey.
Trust if crosby would’ve have not been selected by the penguins not only your bandwagon asss would’ve not seen the cup but penguins would’ve probably missed the playoffs 14 years on 15.
Go make some donuts maybe you might be able to trade for some hot dogs with npl
Hey Samantha, thanks to Mario Tremblay your beloved Habs are going on a 30 yr cup drought. I am 100% positive it will go past that bc they will NOT make the playoffs next year with or with out fraud Price. Another $10 million a season wasted. As for being a bandwagon fan, I have been a Pens fan since before they won their FIRST cup unlike you who comes here to troll and has no interest in this team whatsoever. I have seen more regular season, playoff and Stanley Cup games IN PITT then you will ever see in… Read more »
Take Crosby out of Pittsburgh and you will see how attendance at the game will drop and tv viewers as well
Most fan base are kids 5-10 years old or some Facebook fans they go to the game to take pictures to post and you wonder why it’s a museum atmosphere
And you are one of those fans. Go away.
I am surprised they protected Blueger over Tanev ! Let’s hope there is a side deal with Seattle not to take Tanev. If they lose Tanev he is harder to replace than Blueger. We also will ad $3.25 million to the $ 4 million we have available in cap space. We will have $ 7 million to go get a Blake Coleman or Pat Marron type to replace him.
We will see…
I would have left Jarry exposed…
They already have their goalies lined up and it wouldn’t make any sense to take Jarry. They aren’t going to take Tanev with his cap hit, term and age. The second they signed Blueger they were planning on protecting him, especially with the uncertainty of Malkin going into next year. There’s probably a 90% chance they take ZAR. They just need to shed Zucker and/or MP so they can have enough space to sign an impact player.
Agreed Hopefully it is Petersson!s That way we can sign a steady defenseman like a David Savard or someone similar.
We have $ 7 million in cap space if we lose Petersson thatis $ 11.085 million / or Zucker that is $12. 5 million.
The Colorado Avalanche won’t protect captain Gabriel Landeskog.
Is he s UFA ? Can Seattle claim him or not really ? Isn’t he like the Ovechkin situation ? Alex is not on the protected list or available list..
They can draft and sign him or flip him before free agency starts.
Great.. They protected Jarry… after his playoff performance no one would take him anyway.
