If anybody needs an easy way to check their picks/roster, CapFriendly updated their expansion draft page with all the protection lists.

There's no NHL rule that Vegas has to draft a team that's cap friendly

Actually, there is.

* Vegas must select players with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100% of the prior season's upper limit for the salary cap.

It took awhile, but I finally put together my team. Rather than try to assemble the best team, I'm aiming for the closest actual team, which will inevitably put me near the bottom of scoring but hopefully not last!



$66.1 mil cap hit. I don't think it'll be that high, so I'm second guessing some of my picks but whatever.

For fun, this is the team I would've picked if I was the Golden Knights GM (ignoring the contest rules, where basically it's just "put together the best team for the inaugural season"):


$47.4 mil cap hit. All my extra picks went towards D, which I'd end up trading several of, either for picks/prospects or forwards.

Especially because leaks are starting to come out with increasing frequency. If they continue to come out I may stipulate a soft deadline after which submissions won't be eligible for the matching prize.

Given that the leaks are building up like crazy, it's probably best just to start that soft deadline now.

Vegas picks:


I got 15/30 right. That's lower than what I was hoping for.

The team I picked surpassed 603.1 points when I checked in March, so that's a relief.

Hooray for accomplishing my goal!
