  • Seattle Expansion Draft

    The draft is today!

    Here is my mock expansion draft, going with BPA. I might do a second one that has more minor league players as that would probably be more realistic. This is basically my version of the very best team they could draft:

    Image doesn't show my Tampa pick, but it was Gourde.

      Hmmm. Biggest surprise seems to be passing on Gostisbehere.

        Well, I ended up with 7 right from each of my two mock drafts, for a total of 8 players.

        Calgary - Giordano
        Canadiens - Fleury (had him in my "realistic" draft but not BPA because of Price)
        Minnesota - Soucy (had him as BPA for value from the Wild but went with Mason Shaw in the realistic draft)
        New Jersey - Bastian
        Rangers - Blackwell
        Tampa - Gourde
        Toronto - McCann
        Washington - Vanecek

        I'm particularly proud of the Nathan Bastian pick as it seemed like a big surprise to a lot of people and I didn't see him on any other lists.

          Yeah, Seattle went with Carsen Twarynski from Philly instead of Gostisbehere and I'm really not sure why. I'm also not a fan of them picking Fleury over Shattenkirk (Anaheim), Driedger over Gudas (Florida), and especially Quenneville, a goddamn UFA, over Zadorov (Chicago).
