Here are our Vegas Golden Knights projected rosters

There's a three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie in Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury available and several 20-plus-goal-scorers in Nashville's James Neal and Minnesota's Eric Staal. Teams in need of skilled blue-line depth, such as the Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs, could be among the suitors for Anaheim defenceman Sami Vatanen. No surprises there; those are the 11 players that made the most sense to shield, and the list was confirmed late Saturday by The Washington Post.

George McPhee is spending a fleeting moment as The Godfather of the National Hockey League during the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion window.

With the quality of the players available, Vegas won't be anywhere near as bad as the expansion Ottawa Senators were in their first year. A 30-goal guy on a one-year, $750,000 deal, there's no team in the league that wouldn't want him.

In addition to Rask, forwards David Backes, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Riley Nash, Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak are not available to the Golden Knights, nor are defensemen Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Kevan Miller. “We expect to put a good, entertaining club on the ice.”.

They protected forwards Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel and Patric Hornqvist, defensemen Kris Letang, Justin Schultz, Brian Dumoulin and Olli Maatta and goalie Matt Murray.

Dani Alves reaches agreement with Man City: Chelsea were interested as well
Dani Alves is ready to agree a two-year deal with Manchester City once he resolves his departure from Juventus . He's reportedly working on a deal to rescind his current contract with Juventus , meaning he'll cost City nada.

The Anaheim Ducks are also a strong candidate to pull the trigger on a deal after failing to protect Vatanen and Manson - two coveted defensemen they'd love to retain.

The Predators were put in a bind in exposing Neal once they elected to protect a fourth defenseman instead of the 10-time 20-goal-scorer.

Matt Dumba (Minnesota) - The Wild had five defensemen to protect and shielded Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin, leaving veteran Marco Scandella and Dumba exposed. Aside from Fleury, other goalies available are Floridas Roberto Luongo, Detroits Petr Mrazek and Philadelphias Michal Neuvirth. The protection lists have been submitted, and the Golden Knights are in their 72-hour window of exclusive free agent negotiation.

By some estimates, Vegas may already have up to eight trades in place with teams prepared to pay a price to the Golden Knights to keep their hands off their unprotected players. The lockout threw things off a little, but six years after stockpiling picks at their expansion draft, Atlanta iced 90-point teams in two straight seasons.

Golden Knights general manager George McPhee will select one player from each of the 30 established clubs in an expansion draft. He intends to inform teams who Vegas is selecting in the event they want to strike a deal to have the Golden Knights choose another player. There's also an outside shot Vegas could be interested in him (he will be exposed in the draft) if they are willing to take a risk on a young player with tremendous upside.

Muslim community wants to educate the public despite London attack
A man was inside in the van, I saw with my eye, and the old man was also on the ground, and I see some people were also injured. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, where he'll receive a mental health assessment, according to the statement .

National Hockey League teams had two options for putting together their protected lists for the draft: either protect a goalie and eight skaters, or a goalie, seven forwards and three defensemen.

Vatanen, a fifth-year player, won't be ready for the start of next season after having surgery to fix a shoulder injury. He's got one year left on his deal with a modest $1 million U.S. cap hit.

Someone was paying attention to George McPhee's mandate that doing business with the Golden Knights was ending Monday night.

Every NHL team's list was unveiled on Sunday.

The expansion draft results will be announced Wednesday night at the NHL Awards show. The 2017-18 salary cap is $75 million, an increase of about 2.75 percent over last season.
