Expansion Draft: Atlantic Division

Part three of my Expansion Draft piece has me shifting over to the Eastern Conference where I will focus solely on the Atlantic Division.

Part one where I look at the Colorado Avalanche and the Central Division and who they will potentially protect and expose in the Expansion Draft can be seen here: https://avalancheavenue.wordpress.com/2017/05/08/expansion-draft-central-division/. Also, rules for the Expansion Draft can be seen here as well.

Part two where I look at the Pacific Division can be seen here: https://avalancheavenue.wordpress.com/2017/05/11/expansion-draft-pacific-division/.
