Never heard of the author, but he refers to Calvert as a center and seems to think Wennberg would be exposed in the expansion draft, and that the CBJ would want to protect Calvert? This is probably what we can expect from the gutted NHL staff at ESPN moving forward.

"Winger Scott Hartnell is an established locker-room leader, but after his production dipped from 23 goals and 49 points in 2015-16 to 13 goals and 37 points this season, will the 35-year-old be worth the $4.75 million he'll make in each of the next two years? Hartnell has a no-movement clause, but the Blue Jackets have three promising centers -- Alexander Wennberg, William Karlsson and Matt Calvert -- whom they'd like to protect. If McPhee passes on Hartnell, an additional draft pick from Columbus might be enough for him to take Calvert instead of Wennberg or Karlsson in the expansion draft."
