How could you claim someone from a team when they do not belong to that team anymore?

Because they do belong to the team. Contracts don't expire, and players don't become UFAs, until July 28. Normally it would have been earlier, but the dates were adjusted due to the season being delayed.

Looked this up.  Sounds like they have an early “Krakk” at free agents right now and anyone signed will count as their pick.  Not clear why they would want to do that but so be it.

Uh...no...they are not a part of the expansion draft sweepstakes...

The Kraken must select someone from each TEAM, a minimum of 20 players.  UFA's are not a part of any team...

They have until the 21st to sign a UFA's, which then is then counted as a pick from the former team.  They cannot claim them and hope they sign by the 21st.

Here are the rules:

Seattle must choose a minimum of 20 players under contract for the 2021-22 regular season and those with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100 percent of the prior season's upper limit for the salary cap. The Kraken cannot buy out players chosen in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season.

Current NHL teams can protect seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie, or eight skaters (forwards/defensemen) and one goalie, under the following conditions.

The Kraken also have an exclusive window from July 18-21 to interview and potentially sign pending free agents who were left unprotected in the expansion draft. If they sign a player in that window it counts as their pick from that players' former team.

* All players with no movement clauses at the time of the draft, and who decline to waive those clauses, must be protected and will be counted toward their team's applicable protection limits.

* All first- and second-year professionals, and all unsigned draft choices, will be exempt from selection and will not be counted toward protection limits.

In addition, all NHL teams must meet the following minimum requirements regarding players exposed for selection in the draft:

* One defenseman who is a) under contract in 2021-22 and b) played in at least 40 NHL games the prior season or played in at least 70 NHL games in the prior two seasons.

* Two forwards who are a) under contract in 2021-22 and b) played at least 40 NHL games the prior season or played in at least 70 NHL games in the prior two seasons.

* One goalie who is under contract in 2021-22 or will be a restricted free agent at the end of his current contract immediately prior to 2021-22. If a team elects to make a restricted free agent goalie available to meet this requirement, that goalie must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the team's protected list.

* Players with potential career-ending injuries who have missed more than the previous 60 consecutive games (or who otherwise have been confirmed to have a career-threatening injury) may not be used to satisfy a team's player exposure requirements unless approval is received from the NHL. Such players also may be deemed exempt from selection.

Thanks. I’m mostly upset that Vegas is exempt.

Yup...seems silly that they didn't have to expose any players...

The deal was that they are exempt in return for forfeiting any share of the Seattle expansion fee.

Looks like Vanacek going to Seattle.

That blows...took a guy we need and didn't take but very little cap space with him...

I have a sweater that he and the rest of the 2014 draft picks signed.  Oh well...

We need Hank back next year...

Gonna be an uphill battle...that's for sure...

Gotta wonder who we jettison in order to sign Ovi and stay under the cap...a cap that we somehow managed to blow past in 2020-2021. 

I hope we can find a sucker for Kuzy...he's become every bit as useless as Robles...at 10x the cost...

Pretty much the worst case scenario for the Caps. They lose a decent goalie who was cheap. They got zero cap relief and will still have to make some moves to stay under the cap. Whoch they blew past last season. And they still have an empty suit for a coach.

Yep.  GMs around the league must be gnashing their teeth and sticking pins in Ron Francis dolls.

Flyers had to give away two draft picks for someone to take Ghost Bear and his salary.

if any of you are near the team store in DC today, they are having huge merchandise sales, including $1.00 t-shirts.

I saw something on channel 9 about this.  They showed one of those Wizards gold jerseys from the 2000s.  I loved those when everyone else hated them.

Davis Bertans socks were $1 a pair, as were Wizards beer steins.

I'd pay $1,000 for SRO with a partial view to be there the night he gets 895...

...and he will...
