AS long as Benning is here Myers will be protected.
He can resign Troy just to expose him. Nah, that doesn't work either. Can't afford to sign him. He's already said publicly he knows he may
not be here. Meaning no home town discount.
Edler will be over.
Tanev is the question at this point. We have to re-sign him. It's getting thin back there. Who'll be there whenever June 2021 is or will be.
Any way it happens on time? I don't see how.
You're quite mad aren't you?
Whenever the X-draft occurs we have a very good idea of who will be there as far as our purposes are concerned.
Myers - here and protected.
Tanev (or vet RS replacement) - here and protected.
Juolevi - protected (possibly traded, and if so we'll bring in another dee who requires protection)
Edler - here at X-draft time, but pending UFA doesn't require protection.
Benn - who cares, gone this off-season or next and pending UFA doesn't require protection.
Stecher - gone this summer and on the off-chance he's still here = he'll be exposed.
Fantenburg - doesn't matter (who knows maybe we re-sign him 2 yrs and he's our designated exposed guy)
Hughes/Tree/Rathbone/Woo/Eliot/Teves - don't require protection
Brisbois/Chatfield - available if they want one (neither will likely meet designated exposed guy requirements)
But you're right, Armageddon could happen, so we shouldn't bother discussing anything...
EDIT: Rafferty requires protection
