Well for Real Salt Lake the next big thing will be the expansion draft, RSL can protect 11 players as Portland and Vancouver will take turns picking un-protected players from current MLS teams. When a team loses a player they can move one more to their protected list, and the max number of players a team can lose is 2.

So given the full RSL roster who would you protect? I am working on my list, which should be out later this week but I thought I would open it up and see what you all are thinking, and why.


Kyle Beckerman

Nat Borchers

Nick Rimando

Andy Williams

Jamison Olave

Jean Alexandre

Robbie Russell

Javier Morales

Alvaro Saborio

Chris Wingert

Ned Grabavoy

Will Johnson

Robbie Findley

Fabian Espindola

Nelson Gonzalez

Kyle Reynish

Tony Beltran

Dave Horst

Rauwshan McKenzie

Pablo Campos

Paulo Araujo Jr.

Collen Warner

Chris Schuler

Luis Gil

Tim Melia

Alex Nimo

So in the comments post what 11 players you would protect and why. You should know that Luis Gil and Alex Nimo are both still part of the Generation Adidas program (at least as far as we know) and would not need to be protected.
