So much for protecting him. He's been fantastic at both ends. What a start!

Well, that was fun. It's gonna be REALLY hard for them to match that intensity next game, so hopefully they can dig deep and keep showing Calgary what they're made of.

What a crazy week it must be for Makar. (Gets his team to the NCAA national championship, wins the Hobey Baker award, and starts his first NHL game...in the playoffs against his childhood team.)
I'm kinda surprised they are played him. Now they have to protect him in the expansion draft.

Good win last night, BTW.

The expansion draft to my understanding for Seattle is in the year 2021-2022. All first and second year players are exempt, but Makar would have undoubtedly played next season and the year after (2019-20, 2020-2021) making 2021-2022 his third year.

I don't think he would be exempt either way.

On Makar though- what a debut. His skating is just at another level, I don't think you can take him out of the lineup now. What a weapon to have on your third pairing.

Just going off of something I read on Sportsnet Twitter a few days ago.

I'm certainly no expert, but from what I understand they DID burn a year of his ELC and a year that he would have been protected from the expansion draft by activating him now.

That said, I think it's a bit overblown in terms of how much it matters. He's clearly a guy they're hoping will be a key cog in the future, so they'll ideally get him locked up early. (In fact, I've read some analysis that suggests that burning a year of his ELC will help the team get a better long-term deal since there will be less of a track record for his agent to use in bargaining.)

As for exposing him to the expansion draft, the key thing to keep in mind is that it's less about exposing HIM as it is exposing an extra PLAYER. There's no way they'd actually expose Makar himself, but protecting him might force them to expose another player like Girard or Barrie. Even so, if Makar is as good as we hope he is, we won't care about them near as much.

Anyway, I'm not an expert, but that's the gist of what the talking heads are saying around here about it. And regardless, if he hopes us win a playoff series or two this year, it'll be well worth it.

You guys are correct- I misinterpreted the rule. In 2021-22 Makar would be off his entry level contract and therefore be eligible for the expansion draft. My bad.

CBJ's up 3-1 on the Lightning in the 2nd. What an epic collapse by the Lightning.

Yeah, it's not looking good for Tampa Bay. I'm not sure if the Blue Jackets are hungrier or TB is collapsing but it's about 9 minutes left in the 3rd as of this post.

Not looking promising. Wow, this game is fantastic!
