WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2011 - Designated player Branko Boskovic, veteran striker Santino Quaranta and defender Marc Burch, were some of the notable players D.C. United left unprotected for Wednesday’s 2011 Expansion Draft where the expansion Montreal Impact will select 10 players.

Montreal will unlikely take Boskovic because of his high salary. Quaranta is still young at 27 with ten years of experience in the league, while Burch, 27, could be a possible pick for the Impact.

Among the United players protected were Charlie Davies, Josh Wolff and Clyde Simms.

Each MLS club was able to protect 11 players from their 2011 roster. Generation adidas players and homegrown players were automatically protected. Clubs could only lose one player in the draft.
