Expansion Draft

37 posts in this topic

With some people talking about next season and Protected Lists, it got me wondering when and how the new team(s) will be stocked.

When the Illinois teams came in they consumed the departing Augusta roster. But unless someone unexpectedly folds that doesn't work for this year.

Is there a plan in place or will it be put together later?

Anyone not on protected rosters will be fair game for an expansion draft where Macon will be able to pick for their protected list.

 

...add to that, a multitude of players leaving out of NCAA DI, NCAA DIII, ACHA, and several Junior Leagues from the :usa: , :Quebec: , :Canada:  and Europe there should be enough talent to fill 18 slots on one SPHL expansion team.

Fayetteville already announced a 5 man list that is eligible for the Macon draft next week, I'm sure every team will have a few players listed for the expansion draft. Macon can only protect 6 players and only take up to 2 players per team. It will take place on 5-4-15.

Will Huntsville also be participating in the expansion draft?

 

 

 

Huntsville gets the 3rd overall pick;

Somehow Edmonton drew the #2 overall pick;

Macon on top with the 1st pick.

Rumor has it that EDM will be trading up with the Mayhem to get the #1.  Peter Chiarelli will be the new Macon GM.  That way he doesn't get screwed on the US-CDN exchange rate.

Macon would be crazy to trade away McDavid! That's a guaranteed cabinet full of Stan Lee Cups!

McDavid will have better stats and a better career with Macon or Huntsville, for that matter, than he would in EDM......would also be a boost for Huntsville......really any NHL draft pick would.

 SPHL teams have picked up a few players from the FHL in the past also.  :hockey:

This does come with coffee, right?

 

RIGHT????

Naw. That would be the SPHL regular season trophy - the William B. Coffey Cup.

I was also told that Macon can't take more than 2 from any one team.

Correct. Macon's draft will be Monday, May 4. They will be allowed to pick 6 total players from the unprotected pool. Fayetteville is only team thus far to submit an extra list containing 5 eligible players for the draft. Macon can not select more than 2 players from one team.

Surely if Biloxi was going to have a team this upcoming season, they'd be apart of the expansion draft, right?

 

Can't imagine a situation where they'd hold an expansion draft in three days and in a month decide "Hey Biloxi, come join us"

I would think the Macon folks have them by now, whether or not all the teams released them publicly.

OK, I'm sure the teams fans would of liked not being kept in the dark.
