Although he could be signed to an offer sheet.
If it's the year after, then see if he will sign a 1 year bridge deal next summer so that he will be a RFA at the time of the expansion draft.
Work out a verbal agreement with him and hope he's a man of his word and doesn't sign anywhere that hurts us until after the draft.
"If it's the year after" (it will be) Markstrom will be a pending UFA.
Not sure why you'd want to go through all these shenanigans... are you worried about losing Marx?
Just protect Demko, Dipietro will be ineligible...
Do it Doc's way.....clearly the most sensible.
