Sounders FC’s protected list for the MLS Expansion Draft

Seattle Sounders FC Logo.jpgAs I predicted last week, here are your 11 protected Sounders for the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft. The Montreal Impact join the league in 2012 and will make its picks on a conference call Wednesday:

* * *

Osvaldo Alonso

Brad Evans

Alvaro Fernandez

Erik Friberg

Jhon Kennedy Hurtado

Fredy Montero

Lamar Neagle

Sammy Ochoa

Jeff Parke

Mauro Rosales

Steve Zakuani

NOTE: Michael Tetteh is exempt as a member of Generation adidas.

Here are Seattle’s unprotected players: Terry Boss, Servando Carrasco, David Estrada, Josh Ford, Michael Fucito, Leo Gonzalez, Taylor Graham, Patrick Ianni, Nate Jaqua, Roger Levesque, Bryan Meredith, Miguel Montano, Pat Noonan, James Riley, Amadou Sanyang, Zach Scott, Michael Seamon, Tyson Wahl, O’Brian White

“Given the fact we’ve lost three players to expansion drafts the past two seasons we are bracing ourselves for the possibility of losing someone,” said Adrian Hanauer, general manager and part owner, in a news release. “Despite those losses we have developed a deep squad and grown stronger. We couldn’t protect everyone, so some of those who contributed significantly to our success are bound to be exposed. It will be interesting to see how Montreal approaches this.”

What do you think? Which player do you think the Sounders are most likely going to lose?
