    Feels like the NHL might be forcing them to hold off on any announcements so as to not make the event awkward…?

    Can only imagine what tradercane would be saying about Francis right now if he was a Kraken fan

    Sounds like Seattle asked for too much also. Vegas set the price depending on the team/who was available. Seattle set the price higher than vegas got and then was happy to get no extra picks. Seems really dumb.

    mcdavid should demand a trade this is the worst offseason by a GM ever. Even Mcdavid can’t get this team to the 2nd round

    Francis overplayed his hand badly if that’s the roster he ended up with and had no pre-draft side deals.

    :meh:

    I’m also uniquely primed for sporting disappointment (was cocksure that the M’s would be turned around by Jack Z)

    My body and mind are ready for failure, with hope for the best, as a Seattle sports fan should be.

    Friedman said Seattle is in play for Seth Jones. I am officially declaring the Kraken are not an analytics team.

    Going after grit/toughness over everything and they have a ton of cap space. Probably some bad trades and FA signings incoming. I don’t expect them to look like vegas at all even if their division is even worse than the Canadian division this season.

    I think Seattle was looking to keep salary low and build through the draft. The next 2 drafts after this one will have some really high end talent. Best to focus on that. But they didn’t do enough to take advantage of other teams like Vegas did and turn that into picks going forward.

    I don’t think the signings of Larsson and Oleksiak reflect that though. I think they wanna play MLW event hockey to stick around in games and earn loser points. I bet they want to be around the race come the deadline where they can use their space to add assets and then flip those for help.

    if that’s your strategy, why not take a guy like maxi domi with one year left who you can likely flip at the trade deadline for picks? They have to use the cap room to their advantage each year. I have no issue with a slower rebuild but you then have to use the cap room to maximize draft picks during that time.

    I guess we will have to see how the summer plays out but they didn’t make moves to give themselves from a forward perspective the best chance to win. They should be ok on D and in net but not world beaters. Seattle didn’t leverage the expansion draft enough either.
    Playing in their division they could walk out of the summer as a top 3/4 team. But that doesn’t make them a good team.

    Hyman will score 60 points this year playing with McDavid and oilers fans will say he’s worth the deal when they could find someone that could do that on a 3.5x4

    It’s a shitty designed site but this is worth a read. Frank mentions Hamilton as an option for the Oilers. Just embrace it, Ken.

    didn’t the canucks have a team in NY for awhile? Only 1 season doesn’t seem that bad. Getting the team in California for 2022 will help though

    There’s a direct flight from Charlotte to Seattle that only takes 5.5 hrs and you gain 3 time zones. So in reality just 2.5 hrs. That’s not bad for year 1.

    Kraken need to convince Alaska Airlines to have a direct flight to solve this.
