A look at the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft Debacle

Recommended Posts

Highlights:

  • Teams pull a bunch of sketchy you-scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours trades to keep players ineligible from the Draft
  • Teams play minor leaguer goalies in 1 game to make them eligible for the expansion draft so they can keep their respectable goalies
  • One team tries to sign a goalie who hadn't played in 13 years and make him their eligible expansion draft goalie
  • Try to follow the convoluted series of trades that end up with Hasek in Buffalo.
  • Ottawa stores all their expansion draft notes on a laptop, but the battery dies and no one thought to bring a power cord.

Sounds like something I would do. Sens for life!
