Over on theSioux City Musketeers blog, the folks there have broke down their 25-player protected roster in a way that I thought was very unique, so I'm stealing borrowing the idea here. I thought it was a fun, and different way to look at the players recently protected on the Stars' 25 man roster. I put this together quickly today, so hopefully there aren't too many errors. Like the folks on the SC blog mentioned, this list is subject to change, due to the fluidity of the protected roster. The information below it based on the roster as it looks right now.
