It's almost that time for the deadline regarding NHL team's protection lists for the Seattle Kraken's expansion draft.
The Blackhawks' list has leaked early and Scott Powers and Mark Lazerus of The Athletic were able to get their hands on it.
Lets take a look at the list:
Forwards: Henrik Borgstrom, Alex DeBrincat, Brandon Hagel, David Kampf, Patrick Kane, Dylan Strome, Jonathan Toews.
Defensemen: Caleb Jones, Connor Murphy, Riley Stillman
Goalie: Kevin Lankinen
The big names that have been left exposed are Ryan Carpenter, Brett Connolly, Collin Delia, Calvin de Haan, Adam Gaudette, Vinnie Hinostroza, Malcolm Subban and Nikita Zadorov.
Zadorov is unsigned so the likely hood the Kraken take him is slim because they would then need to basically sign him to the contract he wants.
Who from the list do you think they'll take?
