I admit my love of Palat and disdain for this iteration of TJ may be coloring my analysis of the situation.
I’m only looking at it from Vinik’s point of view. It 2 years less expense for Vinik to buyout Palat.

Why would Seattle take a 30 something Johnson when you can get Cernak ar Foote? That answer could be draft picks, but you are going to have to give them something to take Johnson.

Pretty much. Minimum 2nd rounder to take TJ, if the last expansion draft is a guide. Of course, if he has a Killorn-esque return to form next year it might be less.

Sidenote: if Serge keeps his upward trajectory into next season, I wouldn't be surprised if its McDonagh, but time will tell.

As it stands today, I think they would go the eight skater route and protect Stamkos, Kucherov, Point, Cirelli, Hedman, Cernak, McDonagh, and Sergachev.

All above is complete speculation. Who really knows how this season and next will play out. CBA also in play.

Yeah I doubt McDonagh gets protected over Vasi. He's getting old and has regressed a bit already.

You didn't hear? Vasi is totally overrated. Barely average. Team play in front of him is propping him up.
Sigh. I gotta stay off of the Reddit hockey boards.

Guys, if you go 8 skaters, you still protect 1 goalie. Calm down here, Derek isn't nuts.
