    Have a look at this tool here on capfriendly: https://www.capfriendly.com/expansion-draft

    Montour is exempt, but I don't understand why because they both have one more year of their ELC.
    ESPN keeper league (5 rounds draft; 2 FA pickups per year; points for G, A, W, SO)

    Forwards: Ovechkin, McDavid, Huberdeau, Voracek, Turris, Wennberg, Galchenyuk, Tkachuk, Domi, Arvidsson, Hertl, Rantanen

    Pulock was drafted a year earlier than Montour , idk if thats a factor .

    still really burns my ass that for such a limited amount of nhl exposure he requires protecting - when scanning other nhl teams the only other guy that stands out in the same situation is Koekoek-TB

    It's because of that 2014-2015 which Pulock spent in the AHL (counts as pro hockey season) but it didn't burn a year off his ELC. It's the same for many players who are born between September 15th (I think that was the cut-off date) and December 31st. They can play a full season in the AHL without burning a year off their ELC. Emile Poirier is another example of this.

    this is something I just realized after you pointed it out - thanks .

    3 seasons in AHL , yet he still has 1 year left on elc .Why wouldnt he have been forced to play in CHL during that freebie season though considering he was still under 20 when season started ?

    I like Montour but the kool-aid is getting a tad to sugary on the forums lately. He's definitely the flavor of the month right now.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, JaBenn, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Turris, Letang, Kucherov, Byfuglien, Burns, Zuccarello, Hoffman, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Konecny, Bjorkstrand, Point, KHayes, OEL, Vrana, NSchmaltz

    isles have to protect Pulock who has similar AHL gp's to him so I'll assume yes.
    it's not dependent on games played. I believe that players with over 2 years of pro experience need to be protected. Montour just finished up his second pro season. Pulock has already been in the AHL for three full seasons.

    If player turns 20 before the year ends, he can play in the AHL. But if he wasn't 20 when the NHL season started, it doesn't burn a year off his ELC. It's a weird rule. As said, affects people who are born late in the year, between the start of NHL season and end of the year.

    I completely agree with this. He's at best Anaheim's #4 dman next year behind Lindholm, Fowler, Vatanen and Manson. I know that math doesn't add up because the Ducks are going to lose one of the 4 mentioned either through trade or the expansion draft. I would be shocked if Montour had 35 points next season. Let's not forget that he's 23 years old which is the same age as Hampus Lindholm and a full year older than Shea Theodore.

    Montour is fortunate enough to be on the right side which is far less deep.

    I believe Vatanen will be the most likely player to leave - although the injury may put a stop to that.. Leaving Lindholm, Fowler, Theodore on the left side and Manson, Montour, Bieksa on the right.

    I know who I would want on the right side of my power play unit.

    I've been one of the kook aid guys on Montour, I'll say ouch. Good luck to you. (But it would be bad luck for me. Ha )
