Keep or flip? Dion Phaneuf, Keith Yandle may be exposed in expansion draft

Keep or flip? Dion Phaneuf, Keith Yandle may be exposed in expansion draft

Its staggering how close the Vegas Golden Knights expansion draft is to really kicking into gear, and the pool of quality available players remains a pretty big mystery.

Sportsnets Elliotte Friedman provided some really fascinating possibilities in the latest edition of the always-essential 30 Thoughts, with two big names possibly being left exposed: Dion Phaneuf of the Ottawa Senators and Keith Yandle of the Florida Panthers.

Friedman reports that both Phaneuf and Yandle have been asked to waive their no-movement clauses (Phaneufs contract also includes a modified no-trade clause).

Yandles situation might be especially intriguing if the Golden Knights essentially become the middle man in the equivalent to a three-team trade:

10. Another interesting one I heard was Florida asking Keith Yandle to waive. That one raised eyebrows at the combine, because if Vegas wanted to take him and flip him, I think there would be a ton of interest, especially if the Golden Knights were willing to keep a little bit of his salary. But would he be willing to waive a year after signing? His call.

That wouldnt be the only player the Golden Knights could flip, as Friedman reports that Marc-Andre Fleury could also be a candidate to go from the Penguins to Vegas to some other team.
