Eric Staal is arguably one of the most appealing players that were left unprotected ahead of the expansion draft.
Staal bounced back in a big way in 2016-17 by scoring 28 goals and 65 points in 82 games. The Wild got him at a low point in his career though and he consequently comes with an affordable $3.5 million annual cap hit for the next two seasons. Jason Zucker ended up on the Wild's protected list instead and that was likely out of a desire to shield the younger forward. For his part, Staal has declined to comment until after the expansion draft. Jun 19 - 3:00 PM
