Teams will submit a list of 11 players they wish to protect ahead of the Expansion Draft.

Per the CBA, a maximum of five forwards and one goaltender can be put on a team’s protected player list.

Well the league has published the protected players lists. Some interesting names available to Rochester and New York.

Curious move by Philadelphia not protecting a goaltender.  Let the bitching by Philly faithful begin.

Anyway let the backroom deals begin in earnest. Check out the lists below.

Colorado pulls off Mammoth upset on the road in overtime.  Joey Cupido scored the game winning goal for the Mammoth 4:04 into overtime.

Colorado now waits to play the winner of Calgary – San Diego.

Maybe in time for next season, the NLL will invest in a reliable streaming service? Or maybe that is just wishful thinking on our part. Its a black eye for the league  when it’s streaming service cannot stay up for an entire game, especially during the playoffs.

Power outage during a playoff game or at least that is what is being reported on social media.
