<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xqb15</b></div><div>Top candidates right now pending contracts and protection obviously, because IMO Seattle is paying close attention to the bubble guys on protection list:
Jost, Donskoi, Compher, Nichushkin, Graves, Zadorov, Grubauer, Francouz.
Obviously the Avs are going to go 7-3-1, so the locks on the protection list IMO are:
1.MacKinnon. 1. Makar 1.
2. Rantanen. 2. Girard
3. Ladeskog 3. EJ (NMC)
With the rise of graves do you think we move EJ or possibly buy him out after the end of next season? Doesn't help us at all to have to use a spot on his NMC. I also think compher will be pretty safe on the list as well, it's gonna be who's playing best to make the 7th roster spot, or if we sign another free agent.
