Vegas will be the first expansion since the salary cap and loser point, I wouldn't be surprised if that helped them be less-terrible in the standings than past expansion teams.

This is true, they will probably land a few decent free agents because they'll have plenty of money.

This would be great if only because the Penguins would expose Jacques Martin and protect Rick Tocchet

It's a shame too, you'd think Tocchet would be a perfect fit for a team in Las Vegas...

Question: Are you limited at how many players you leave unprotected?

Detroit is only obligated to protect Nilsson. A bunch of the younger guys aren't eligible for the draft anyhow.

Could Detroit leave extra people unprotected if they so choose?

It's the arrogance of the subtext: The province of human affairs is a field best left to dilettantes' extraordinary gift for the feigning of paralysis. For saying nothing at all. For daydreams of black-tie affairs at Rideau Hall. An acceptance speech. Sustained applause.

It would be a strange thing to do though. Even if you don't care about who of your unprotected players gets claimed, not using up all your slots is going to send a message to your players, and to other teams that maybe you don't want to send.

in "no poo poo" news, naming your team the black knights might run into trademark problems: http://sinbin.vegas/not-so-fast-on-...ainly-possible/

also "the creator" is possibly the most annoying way to refer to the owner possible

Silver Knights is one they can get, but The Creator doesn’t like it. He said to a group of media after the press conference it just doesn’t have the pizzaz and doesn’t invoke the powerful feel he’s looking for.

Which makes sense, because by the time you get to Anor Londo, you should know how to parry & riposte silver/black knights.
