Predators' James Neal: Left unprotected by team

Neal (hand) was left unprotected by the Predators for the upcoming expansion draft, TSN reports.

One of the better names available for the expansion draft, Nashville was vulnerable to leaving a better forward available to protect the club's top four defensemen. While it's not guaranteed, Neal's selection by Vegas in the upcoming draft wouldn't be surprising given that he's notched at least 20 goals in each of the past seven seasons and at least 37 points in each of the campaigns over that span.
