Las Vegas Golden Knights Mock Expansion Draft Contest

Post by bqaggie » Tue Jun 13, 2017 1:40 pm

LET'S BUILD THE LAS VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS

Image

The Pittsburgh Penguins have hoisted the Stanley Cup. The 2016/17 NHL Season has come to a close and we're now officially in the off-season. Thus, the Las Vegas Golden Knights can now start building for the upcoming season by putting a team together. So, I figured it might be a little fun to have a contest of whom you think George McPhee will select from the other 30 teams to build his Knights roster. On June 17th each of the 30 NHL teams must submit their protected players list to the NHL Front Offices. On June 18th, that protected list will be released to the general public. On June 21st, at 10AM EST the Las Vegas Golden Knights will then select ONE player from EACH team that is not on the protected list.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a mock Expansion Draft sheet as to whom you think will be selected as the 2017/18 Las Vegas Golden Knights. The member who submits their mock draft with the most correct selections will win a PRIZE PACKAGE consisting of:

1 Max Domi Young Guns RC
1 Dylan Larkin Young Guns RC
1 Sidney Crosby SP Authentic Essentials /1999


ImageImageImage


This contest will "open" for entries beginning June 18th, once the protected players list has been submitted. After that, you will have until June 21st at 10AM EST to submit your Mock Draft. This thread will be locked upon the Expansion Draft, and all entries will be examined to see how many correct picks you submitted. Each entry should look something like the example shown.

*UPDATE*

*JUNE 17 11:50pm EST*

Ok, so apparently I may have misunderstood how Vegas will be selecting their team. I was under the impression that lists would be submitted & released tomorrow morning at 10AM (which they will be.) However, Las Vegas can immediately select and negotiate with UFA's and unprotected players once the lists have been submitted and their roster will be finalized and announced on June 21st. So That sort of throws a monkeywrench into how we can keep the contest fair based on when people submit their guesses. Meaning, if Las Vegas immediately takes (for example) Marc-Andre Fleury from PIT early tomorrow morning, then EVERYONE will submit MAF as their pick on the sole basis of knowing they've gotten one guess correct.

Here's one way I can combat that, and you guys let me know if this is acceptable. Once it has been tweeted/announced/reported that LVGK has selected a player from a certain team, I will then "black out" that team on the initial board, and any subsequent picks/submissions by C&C members after that time will be null-&-void.

For example...if MAF is selected and announced at 11AM EST on June 18th, then any entry with MAF as the PITT selection made after 11AM EST 6/18 will not be eligible. (The rest of your board is fine, you just won't get credit for the PIT pick.) Any subsequent pick made will be time-stamped & kept up just the same.

Plus, if you follow the NHL, tsn, or any NHL teams on Twitter, they've sort of "unofficially" confirmed whom they're keeping/protecting anyways. I know the protected list for WSH, LAK and maybe the Ducks have been submitted, so you can go off of that.

As a matter of fact, all that being said, if you want to roll the dice and start submitting your entries NOW, be my guest and good luck. I'm going to try and keep this as fair as possible. Please bare with me/us as this is the 1st contest of it's kind and I'm doing my best to do right by everyone. Best of luck.
