las vegas golden knights expansion roster predictions

When Las Vegas Golden Knights GM George McPhee submits his list of 30 players on June 21, 2017, he will have to choose a minimum of 14 forwards, 9 defencemen and 3 goalies. TSN Craig Button has these expansion draft roster predictions:

Forwards
Dzingel (OTT) - Perreault (WPG) - Silfverberg (ANA)
Nieto (SJS) - Jarnkrok (NAS) - Read (PHI)
Bouma (CGY) - Grigorenko (COL) - Mantha (DET)
Smith-Pelly (NJD) - Larsson (BUF) - Reaves (STL)

Defencemen
Davidson (EDM) - Brodin (MIN)
Orlov (WAS) - Petrovic (FLA)
Sbisa (VAN) - Klein (NYR)

Goalies
Fleury (PIT)  Lack (CAR)


Button believes Las Vegas will stay as close as possible to the salary cap lower limit ($43.8 million) to take advantage of other team’s cap issues. In addition, keeping the payroll low, leaves space to sign unrestricted free agents.
