- 2009 Expansion Draft
While the rest of the world is waiting for a couple World Cup qualifiers to finish up here we move forward here with our expansion draft coverage. Earlier in the day we discussed the LA Galaxy, now we take a gander at the New England Revolution.
|Kevin Alston||Chris Albright||Nico Colaluca|
|Darrius Barnes||Stephane Assengue||Amaechi Igwe|
|Kheli Dube||Gabriel Badilla|
|Jay Heaps||Mauricio Castro|
|Shalrie Joseph||Edgaras Jankauskas|
|Jeff Larentowicz||Brad Knighton|
|Kenny Mansally||Pat Phelan|
|Sainey Nyassi||Matt Reis|
|Emmanuel Osei||Bobby Shuttleworth|
|Steve Ralston||Wells Thompson|
|Taylor Twellman||Chris Tierney|
A fun one to watch here. I put Dube in over Reis just because of the age of Reis and his contract, similar to why Houston has always left Pat Onstad unprotected. Plus I look at their backup situation right now with Knighton and think that they are okay for the future. But I just don’t see Philly taking a keeper in the draft, they’ll trade for a good one if they don’t sign one or draft one in January.
I did go back and forth on Phelan because he is young and has the potential to be a real stud for this club if Larentowicz doesn’t re-sign with the team. I just don’t see them not protecting Larentowicz here though, in years past they’ve always protected out-going players like Michael Parkhurst and Clint Dempsey. Just makes sense.
See anyone I whiffed on here? Let’s here it.
