Think Stars are protecting
Forwards: Seguin, Benn, Radulov, Hintz, Gurianov, Faksa, Dickinson. Pavelski's NMC changes to NTC for the final year and thus he doesn't have to protected according to this site and the ED tool.
Defensemen: Heiskanen, Klingberg, Lindell
Pavelski would be in terms of player level the best option available from the Stars, but with one year left he might not be the best option long-term. If Seattle want themselves a goalie, Khudobin in also exempt, although he's also quite old by this point. This applies to Sekera as well.
In terms of younger guys, players like L'Esperance, Honka and Caamano are probably their best bets, provided they decide to go with the younger player route.
Dallas in is pretty good situation in regards to the expansion draft. They're unlikely to lose any core members of their team with the exception of Pavelski, but if he goes it's sort of a blessing in disguise as well, as it provides Stars money to re-sign Heiskanen.
