It occurred to me that the Ticats, if they can lock up Holmes and now that they have Lumsden, may leave Ranek on the injured list for the remainder of the season and then leave him unprotected for the Ottawa dispersal draft.
I wonder what other moves they might have planned for the draft?
That raises a question about the draft - would it happen before or after the free agent bonanza begins. In other words, would the draft happen before Feb. 15th, the free agency deadline, so that they could leave unprotected guys they know they won't be able to sign?
Anybody else we should plan to leave unprotected?
