How Awkward Is It For Unprotected Players Who Don’t Get Selected In The NHL Expansion Draft?

Imagine you’re a pretty good player for an NHL team.

This past weekend teams had to submit their list of protected players from getting drafted in today’s NHL Expansion Draft. 1xbet Imagine not being on that list. ألعاب الروليت I would assume it’s not the best feeling in the world. Not only knowing you could be moving to a new city without your contract being up but also the thought that your current team is essentially saying, “Yeah, you guys can draft this doofus if you want. We don’t care.”

Like WTF?! Why am I even on this team in the first place if at the first sign of a new team joining the league, my team is like “Yeah, you can have him.” Like a box on the side of the highway with a sign that reads “FREE PUPPIES.”

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Then, on top of all of that, imagine the expansion team doesn’t draft you.

Like even the new guy in town is like, “Thanks, but no thanks.” That’s a real WTF moment. This team hasn’t even played *A* game of hockey yet and they’re like we’d prefer other rejects over you. They’re literally choosing to pass up a free puppy. That’s gotta be a sinking feeling. Think about most expansion teams (most meaning every expansion team other than the Golden Knights) and how bad they sucked. So for an expansion team to say they’d rather not choose you, I’d imagine can shoot some seriously negative thoughts in your noggin.

But again, that’s not even the worst of it.

Then, on top of literally ALL OF THAT, imagine returning to your original team. 888 casino How awkward is that? It probably feels like your girlfriend breaking up with you, but you still have to live together (and date) until your relationship contract is expired. Just brutal.

Anyway, here’s the projected guys the Kraken will choose in the Expansion Draft. Our thoughts and prayers are with those unprotected players who don’t get drafted.
