    Default 2019 MLS Expansion Draft

    I wasn’t going to make this thread with us still in playoffs, but I just realized it’s under one month away (November 19th).

    Miami and Nashville joining this year. They get to pick 5 players each from any MLS team. Each MLS team can protect 12 players (DP’s must be protected). If either Nashville or Miami take someone from us, both can no longer take another player from TFC.

    DC United, NY Red Bulls, Houston, Vancouver, and Dallas all are exempt from this draft because they had players selected by Cincinnati last year. So we are most likely losing someone.

    Altidore
    Pozuelo
    Auro
    Delgado
    Endoh
    Gallardo
    Gonzalez
    Laryea
    Mavinga
    Osorio
    Westberg
    Morrow

    If TFC don’t win the MLS Cup, Bradley’s option can be declined (Just thought of this. This is probably why TFC haven’t signed Bradley yet. So they don’t have to protect him).

    Benezet is on loan. Don’t have to protect him.

    Apparently Bono is still Generation Adidas. Even if he isn’t, we’re hoping someone takes him on that money.

    Dorsey is Generation Adidas

    Shaffelburg is auto protected

    The only one I’m not sure is/isn’t is Liam Fraser.

    So that leaves unprotected:
    Zavaleta
    Telfer
    Patterson-Sewell
    Mullins
    Morgan
    Moor
    Deleon
    Ciman
    Fraser (potentially)

    From that list, the only two that are enticing are Deleon and Fraser (id consider protecting him if we have too).

    Who’s your protected 12?

    Is there a good site anywhere that shows when our contracts expire? Could affect the selections, by not protecting a player expiring

    I believe Telfer is a free agent. I would protect Fraser over half your list due to his age/potential.

    Laryea is a free agent as well so no need to protect him.

    Perfect. You can swap him with Fraser. The only guy I’d be upset with them taking is Deleon. Everyone else is easily replaceable.

    Absolutely despise the expansion draft. It's embarrassing we even still have one.

    Mullins is also a free agent.

    DeLeon's contract has 2 more seasons on it.

    But who is going into their option year that can be declined or picked up. Whats up with the likes of Aiden Daniels, Julian Dunn and Jon Bakero?

    Aiden was used mostly as a substitute in the Ottawa Fury games I attended. He'll probably stick around Ottawa next year too.

    Wait a second. I just looked this up and they changed the rules. In the 2018 expansion draft, HG players had to occupy a supplemental or reserve roster slot to be ineligible for selection. But according to the 2019 rules it now says any HG player 25 or under (born in 1994 or later), regardless of roster designation is, is ineligible.

    This is great for us because it means Marky Delgado is protected. We would've had to protect him under the old rules. Fraser is protected as well (though he would've been under old rules also).

    This should be our full list of automatically protected players:
    - Marky Delgado
    - Liam Fraser
    - Jay Chapman
    - Ayo Akinola
    - Jacob Shaffelburg
    - Noble Okello
    - Griffin Dorsey
    - Julian Dunn
    - Aidan Daniels

    Bono has graduated from Generation Adidas so he would be exposed.

    If I was Nashville or Miami, I'd pick up Bono, if for nothing other then trade potential.

    However, I suspect Miami makes no moves without thinking about the "coolness" factor.

    Not exactly. If you don’t protect him another team potentially gets first right of refusal.

    But agreed with Ossington. This is a stupid and embarrassing exercise for the league

    Deleon would likely get picked if he were available. DCU's mistake was in not realizing the price of depth had gone up so much. A good utility guy on 250-300K now makes tons of sense in this league

    ^^ I agree. If he is left exposed and there is no "handshake" deal, he isn't coming back.

    Maybe we can strike a deal with them. We trade them Bono for an asset. Basically tell them, we're going to protect him, but we'll trade him to you if you don't pick one of our other players in exchange for maybe a player another team leaves unprotected. Kind of like how Raheem Edwards was claimed from us and dealt.


    EDIT: Forgot there were two teams picking players. Can't really make this handshake deal, since the other team could select our player since they'll be under no obligation to not pick. Maybe the trade is we purposely leave Bono unprotected and you pick him.

    Especially since Nashville is currently a USL team. So they already have all those players.

    Cinci & Minnesotta proved that all but a few USL players are not MLS class.

    I was going to say I thought we were going to lose Marky, but if he's automatically protected that's good.

    Well this being on the 19th, and only a few days away. I guess its time to reping this.

    Reality, you hate to lose anyone. Here is hoping, we don't lose anything notable/we worked out a deal with both teams to take someone.

    Looking at the lists of the other teams, wow, a lot of major names will be available.

    We might lose Endoh I suppose... but I think I see 10 names I would rather have

    Raheem Edwards, anyone?

    So tired of these drafts, and we have to sit through more in '21 and '22, ugh.

    I would not be surprised to see Bono picked up.

    On $400K? I doubt it.

    Everyone knows that.

    I am just reminding everyone that Raheem moved to Montreal via trade in an expansion draft.

    I hope the cap basement goes up to a high enough level that we can stop swooning over nearly every Canadian player in hopes that we can get them here. Or back here.

    Probably not but if they make Canadians domestics in the next CBA and owners have wind of it happening, you never know. Miami did just pay $100K for Chapman.

    Benezet is on loan so no need to protect him. They should have let bono go.
