The 2011 MLS Expansion class, Vancouver and Portland, will take part in an Expansion Priority Draft today to determine which of them gets to select first from a number of transaction mechanisms (yes, that sounds very boring, but it is pretty important in determining how these teams will build their rosters):
The teams will be selecting from the following list, with Vancouver having first pick of the following:
Â· First pick in the Expansion Draft
Â· First pick in the MLS SuperDraft
Â· USL Player Priority on opening of signing period
Â· Allocation Ranking
Â· Designated Player Ranking
Â· Discovery Ranking
Â· Lottery Ranking
Â· Waiver/Re-entry Draft Ranking
You can hear the selections via audio on MLSSoccer.com at 4pm.
Which mechanism would you select first? Expansion draft top pick or MLS Draft top pick?
