"I heard gunfire coming from the camp and I saw people running out of the site", said Modibo Diarra, who lives nearby.
Remember, the Devils can only lose one of the players below. As there's a number of top defensemen exposed such as Anaheim's Sami Vatanen and Ottawa's Marc Methot.
"We can put a competitive team on the ice and accumulate draft picks", McPhee said. It would be, Do we have too many players?
The 30 NHL teams have submitted their list of protected players for the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft. On Sunday, each team provided a list of available players. A 30-goal guy on a one-year, $750,000 deal, there's no team in the league that wouldn't want him. That's a quality forward available for the Golden Knights if they would like to go down that route. However, the asking price is said to be a top-two defenceman with a right-handed shot. He can still put points on the board, but Staal's leadership would be a great thing for the Golden Knights as he has proven that he can be good in the locker room and help build a winning culture. Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stands out as the likely face of the Vegas Golden Knights franchise, as he was left unprotected by the back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions. The Penguins instead protected Matt Murray a week after the second-year goalie led them to win their second consecutive championship.
Among those left unprotected are David Perron, Dmitrij Jaskin, Kyle Brodziak, Magnus Paajarvi, Jori Lehtera, defenseman Carl Gunnarsson, and goaltender Carter Hutton.
Other notable forwards left unprotected were Los Angeless Dustin Brown, Montreals Tomas Plekanec and Pittsburghs Chris Kunitz.
Matt Dumba (Minnesota) - The Wild had five defensemen to protect and shielded Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin, leaving veteran Marco Scandella and Dumba exposed.
Hart Trophy Winner: Connor McDavid
McDavid, Crosby and San Jose's Brent Burns also are up for the Ted Lindsay Award as most outstanding player as voted by peers. Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson won the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.
Happ pitches into seventh as Blue Jays beat White Sox
The shot drove in Troy Tulowitzki and helped the Toronto Blue Jays rally past the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday afternoon. After catching three straight games, Russell Martin also sat out Saturday, with Luke Maile suiting up behind the plate.
Trump calls House health bill he backed 'mean'
Just last weekend, Trump used his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., to hold a fundraising event for MacArthur that netted $800,000. Two other congressional GOP officials confirmed that the general descriptions of Trump's words were accurate.
Some teams went four forwards, four defenseman, and one goaltender.
The unprotected list includes players eligible to become restricted or unrestricted free agents. With Matt Murray ready to take over as the clear-cut starter, the Penguins exposed the top overall pick from the 2003 National Hockey League draft, who has won 375 games and three Stanley Cups and is still only 32.
Just two years ago, the Senators got a first-round pick from Buffalo for goaltender Robin Lehner, Boston a first-round pick from San Jose for Martin Jones and NY second- and third-round picks from Edmonton for Cam Talbot.
The Boston Bruins, as expected, protected seven forwards, three defensemen and goalie Tuukka Rask for the expansion draft being used to stock the Vegas Golden Knights.
"We've got lots of things lined up, but until we see everything, we don't have anything", McPhee said. He intends to inform teams who Vegas is selecting in the event they want to strike a deal to have the Golden Knights choose another player. Along with that possibility, it's important to note that this team is still limited to plucking one player from each roster, although there are hypothetical scenarios where they might yield creative combinations via trades.
On Sunday, the National Hockey League released every team's list of protected and unprotected players.
It is a unique - but not unprecedented - moment in time that is creating trading opportunities for some teams and protection issues for others. The 2017-18 salary cap is $75 million, an increase of about 2.75 percent over last season.
