Essentially, each team needs to expose 2 forwards and 1 dman that have played either 27 games this season or 54 games combined between this year and last AND be signed past this season.
Each team needs to respect those requirements to give Seattle a fair shot of drafting NHL players. Bellows completing those 13 games will not affect his eligibility in the expansion draft. He will be exposed regardless. A lot of people dont know this rule, so I dont blame you for not knowing haha. I hope I explained this clearly.</div></div>
Thank you, people keep saying “NYI will expose Bellows”, but gloss over the game requirement. Is the idea that the game requirement just whether or not a team is obligated to expose the player, and that the team can choose to expose the player even if they fall short of the game requirement?
Still, I’d think exposing, say, Bailey, Clutterbuck and Leddy gives the Kraken plenty to work with, right? That’s three NHL players with more than enough games right there. I guess I’m just confused on why the Isles expose Bellows if they’re not required to.

We’re at the point where you only confidently say Nelson, barzal, and eberle are better than wahlstrom. That’s it. Taking him out of the lineup at any point going forward is a fireable offense.

See, I agree with all that, I’m just saying we can’t risk injuring Wahlstrom so close to the playoffs. This team’s offense is completely flat without him, and I don’t see us winning the Cup without him.
Personally, I want to see a few games of him on the top line with Barzal. Let’s find out now before the playoffs if he can be that star winger for Barzy. But for now, I’m happy that they put Zajac in Komarov’s LW1 spot and Wahlstrom back on the 3rd line where he’s productive.
