SKC's protected list for the expansion draft

1

PV decided to protect: Jimmy Nielsen Chance Myers Aurelien Collin Matt Besler Julio Cesar Roger Espinoza Graham Zusi Davy Arnaud CJ Sapong Teal Bunbury Kei Kamara The most glaring omissions to the protected list are Omar Bravo and Seth Sinovic. Bravo being left off will, I am sure, spur plenty of rumors that he is now in Vermes's doghouse for his comments about his lack of playing time during the playoffs, but I honestly can't think of a good reason not to protect Bravo, and certainly not over a player like Davy Arnaud who, like Bravo, is older, expensive, and injured last season. Sinovic being left unprotected is stunning. He's a hometown guy who played great for us down the stretch while making the league minimum. If I were Montreal, I would leap on taking him in a heartbeat. Julio Cesar being protected was a necessity due to the international rule, but I am already willing to venture a guess that protecting Davy Arnaud will prove to be one of the biggest mistakes Vermes has or will do in his tenure at SKC.
