While there's still lots of questions whether we'll be seeing hockey for the 2020-21 season, teams are still looking ahead at the 2021-22 season as well. The Seattle Kraken will be joining the league which means another expansion draft and much like the Vegas expansion draft, we could see teams lose some pretty big pieces. It'll pretty much be the exact same rules which means that any player with a full no movement clause will have to automatically be protected. That means the Maple Leafs big guns won't be going anywhere but they'll be losing somebody. Jonas Siegel of The Athletic recently put together a piece looking at who the Leafs will likely lose.
