In an effort to fit all of the players they want onto the protected list heading into Vegas' expansion draft, Ottawa is expected to request Dion Phaneuf to waive his no-movement clause.

Doing so would allow Ottawa to leave Phaneuf off their protected list, as his clause would otherwise force them to include him. Ottawa appears set on protecting Cody Ceci and Marc Methot along with Erik Karlsson. Exposing Phaneuf is a win-win for the Senators. Either they keep a veteran defender they're happy with, or lose his $7M cap hit from for the next four seasons. What Phaneuf wants in return for waiving his no-movement clause however is another question entirely.
