MLS Mock Expansion Draft 2011, Tenth Round: Montreal Impact Select Chris Wingert (Real Salt Lake)

With their tenth pick in the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft, the (fake) Montreal Impact select:

Chris Wingert (D, Real Salt Lake)

Kevin's explanation: Like the Seattle Sounders, it was going to be impossible for RSL to avoid leaving quality players unprotected. I actually contemplated taking about half of their available guys. Chris Wingert is 29 years old and not cheap at $135,000 per season, but he is at worst the second best left back in MLS. In a league with bad fullbacks and fast wingers, having a fullback tandem of Wingert and Harrington is too attractive to pass up. Actually, this probably gives Montreal the best fullback tandem in the league right away.

No, Sean Franklin is not a good defender. Please do not email me about this.

Analysis from Drew Epperley: RSL fans will hate to see this one but they stand to lose a decent player as well here like Seattle. Grabbing a veteran defender like this that doesn't make a ton of coin makes total sense for Montreal.
