Moving forward yet again on our quest to preview all 15 MLS clubs before the 2009 expansion draft next week. Today we turn our focus to the New York Red Bulls.

Protected Available Exempt
Juan Pablo Angel Danleigh Borman Jeremy Hall
Danny Cepero Andrew Boyens
Kevin Goldthwaite Bouna Coundoul
Macoumba Kandji Walter Garcia
Ernst Oebster Carlos Johnson
Mike Petke Leo Krupnik
Dane Richards Carlos Mendes
Luke Sassano Matthew Mbuta
Seth Stammler Jorge Rojas
Sinisa Ubiparipovic John Wolyniec
Nick Zimmerman

Hall should graduate from the GA program, the key word is should. If he does then I’d take Zimmerman off and put him on the protect list. We’ll have to wait and see, I’m still curious to see when players will graduate from GA contracts this year. If it comes before the draft it could change a lot of clubs lists.

Some may also think Borman may be protected, I don’t buy it or him for that matter. Either way I just don’t expect Philly to pick a player from one of the worst teams in league history.

See anyone I missed on here? Let’s hear it.

    I think I would definitely protect Coundoul, He seemed very comfortable and confident in the last couple of games this year. I was never really impressed with Oebster and think Ubi and Sassano are too raw to judge, but not sure I'd protect them. I would protect Wolyneic just because he has the biggest heart on the team. I would also think to protect Boyens he's really improved over the last year especially after Williams tooks over.

    I'd protect Borman over Oebster. He's a decent player, considering his salary. I also think Condoul is far better than Cepero, but maybe the money factors in there, since Condoul is making twice as much.
