2007 MLS EXPANSION DRAFT OFFICIAL RULES
Not sure how the draft works? ColoradoRapids.com has you covered! Here are the official MLS rules and regulations concerning the 2007 MLS Expansion Draft:
-Teams may protect 11 total players between their Senior and their Developmental Roster.
-If the Player’s contract expires at the end of 2007, he will still be considered part of the Team’s Senior Roster.
-If a Team protects a player, they are not obligated to exercise the player’s option. The team may renegotiate a new budget number for the player as in previous years.
-If a player retires, he will not be a part of the Senior Roster, but his Team will lose its right of first refusal to him should he ultimately decide to play.
-Designated Players do not have to be protected unless the player has a No-Trade clause in his contract, in which case the player must be protected.
-Players on a Team’s Developmental Roster, other than Project 40/Generation adidas players who have not been graduated at the end of the 2007 season, will be part of the expansion draft.
-Project 40/Generation adidas players who have not been graduated at the end of the 2007 season are automatically protected (teams do not have to use a protected slot on them)
-If San Jose selects a Developmental Player, it must offer him a Senior Roster position and he must be on San Jose’s Senior Roster as of the Roster Compliance Date.
-Teams may make available no more than 1 Senior International player. A player shall be considered a Senior International if he will be a Senior International in 2008 (e.g., a 2007 Youth International who becomes a Senior International in 2008).
-For purposes of this expansion process, for US-based teams, any non-domestic US player would count as an International Player, and for Toronto FC, any non-domestic US player or non-domestic Canadian player would count as an International.
-Once a player has been claimed from a Team’s non-protected roster, that team is eliminated from the expansion draft and may not lose any further players.
-The expansion draft will be composed of 10 rounds

He's not that well-informed; he just cut and pasted from the MLS website! Largely a poorish selection of names, but here's my picks:
Merlin, Laurent (Chivas USA)
Thorrington, John (Chicago)
Sala, Dario (Dallas)
Addlery, Nicholas (DC)
Waibel, Craig (Houston)
Burciaga, Jose (KC)
Glinton, Gavin (LA)
Dorman, Andy (New England)
Vide, Joseph (NY)
Braz, Adam (Toronto)

I would pick:
Alex Zotinca, Chivas
John Thorrington, Crash And Burn
Denilson de Oliveira, FC Dallas
Guy-Roland Kpene OR Nicholas Addlery OR Joshua Gros, DC United
Pat Onstad, Dynamo
Abel Xavier, Galaxy
Andy Dorman, Revolution
David Guzman, Toronto FC
Chris Brown, Real Salt Lake
Joseph Vide, Red Bulls
I really hope they don't take Gros, Kpene or Addlery from DC, but they are really really REALLY good. Especially Gros, but his head/wrist issues are getting in the way. Kpene & Addlery are both very promising.
