UPDATE: Expansion Draft is over. Picks are below. No Portland Timbers players were selected.
Welcome to the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft! We've covered the event quite extensively already here on Stumptown Footy, but now here's the real deal. Who will the Montreal Impact take? Could Ryan Pore be on his way out? No more need to speculate as the event kicks off.
I'll be following the event live and updating the thread here with the picks as they come in, as fast as I can. Otherwise please feel free to use this as the official discussion thread.Montreal Impact's selections:
- Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo)
- Zarek Valentin (Chivas USA)
- Justin Mapp (Philadelphia Union)
- Bobby Burling (San Jose Earthquakes)
- Jeb Brovsky (Vancouver Whitecaps)
- Collen Warner (Real Salt Lake)
- Josh Gardner (Columbus Crew)
- Sanna Nyassi (Colorado Rapids)
- James Riley (Seattle Sounders)
- Seth Sinovic (Sporting Kansas City)
- James Riley to Chivas USA for Justin Braun.
- Tyson Wahl to Montreal for allocation money.
And that looks to be it! No Portland Timbers players were selected. I think we might still see a trade where Ryan Pore goes to Montreal but that'll come outside of the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft.
