The Portland Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps have already made some moves to shape their squads. The Whitecaps signed U.S. men’s national team player Jay DeMerit as its top-defender and brand name player. The Timbers have already traded for New York Red Bulls defender Jeremy Hall for a third round MLS Super Draft pick.

The the 2011 Major League Soccer  expansion teams have sured up their defense with two quality players. DeMerit, a strong leader who recently captained Watford of the English Championship – England’s second division, will give the Whitecaps a rock solid, no nonsense center back in a tough league. The Timbers went after Hall – a young and promising defender that the Red Bulls were more than likely going to lose in the draft anyways – to give them a quick and promising talent to build on.

Next is the expansion draft for the latest additions to the MLS. Portland and Vancouver will have a chance to draft players from the existing clubs in the MLS in an expansion draft to sure up their line-ups. Each team in the MLS can protect up to 11 players on its rosters from the draft. Three of the protected players must be international players and Generation Adidas and homegrown players are already protected and do not have to put on the list. Once a team has a player selected it can protect another player from the draft. No team can have more than two players selected.

Here are the unprotected players lists for each team:
