And we will bring yu some timely news about NHL 17 expansion draft.
 
Las Vegas is going to select thirty players in the Expansion Draft. General manager Brian MacLellan is looking at the Capitals roster and trying to tweak it just right to get that final push. MacLellan will definitely be active at the deadline, looking to acquire talent to gear up for the playoffs. Another thing MacLellan has to be looking ahead at is the Expansion Draft. Any moves he makes at the deadline could drastically affect who they protect in June. MacLellan needs to decide before the draft which players he wants to re-sign, because Washington has four big unrestricted free agents, including Justin Williams, T.J. Oshie, Daniel Winnik, and Karl Alzner.
 
Alzner, however, must be protected as he has a no trade clause. Washington is actually in a strong position when it comes to no trade clauses, only having four on the books including Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Alzner, and Matt Niskanen. All of these players will be protected as they are key pieces in Washington’s system. Along with Ovechkin and Backstrom, Washington will keep Evgeny Kuznetsov, Marcus Johansson, and Oshie - if he re-signs. This only leaves two spots left with several forwards that Washington wants to keep. Lars Eller was just acquired and Washington gave up substantial assets to get him. Andre Burakovsky has a ton of potential. Daniel Winnik has proven to be valuable asset. Although Williams is aging, he has always been able to produce for Washington. Whatever they pick, it's going to be tough to choice.
