Buffalo Sabres and the Expansion Draft: Who ya got, Defenseman Edition

Who’s your pick for the best defender available to the Kraken?

NHL: Player Headshots 2021 Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Next up...the defenseman! With the Skinner news, I don’t think much changes. Dahlin and Jokiharju should still be considered our two most valuable defenseman and sure-thing-protected assets for the expansion draft.

And for the sake of consistency, we’ll stick with the belief that the Sabres are submitting a 7 F - 3D - 1G protection list this weekend. 8 skaters & 1 goalie is more plausible with the Skinner news, but I still think it’s significantly still a worse decision from an asset management point that I won’t consider it :)

So, with that in mind, please vote for who you think does not get the third protected slot and would also be the “best” asset for the Kraken? (excluding Irwin & Davidson)


Pick the defender who you think will NOT be protected by the Sabres AND is also the most attractive asset for the Kraken?
