Josh Bailey was not protected by the Islanders for the expansion draft, but New York may have insured that he stays on their roster.
It's rumored that the Islanders will trade a first-round pick to the Golden Knights, but it isn't clear who that would make Vegas stay away from in the expansion draft. New York also exposed Brock Nelson, Ryan Strome, Calvin de Haan, Thomas Hickey, Scott Mayfield, Shane Prince, Nikolay Kulemin, Jason Chimera, Cal Clutterbuck, Casey Cizikas and Jaroslav Halak. It's believed that Nelson, Strome and de Haan won't be taken, but we won't know for sure until Wednesday. Bailey could be an attractive option for the Golden Knights if he's available.
