The biggest surprise? Shea Salinas is not on the list. Salinas' non-inclusion is surprising because of his ability to change the pace of the game when utilized by coach Piotr Nowak as a second half substitution.

The Brotherly Game will have more on the lists later tonight with analysis of not only Salinas but the other non-protected players and the inclusions on the protected list.
