Kraken smartly passing on train wrecks and heavily used goods.

Yeah, no albatrosses. Gourde's the longest deal reported so far.

Heavy on defensive depth and scrappy forwards, but light on offence.

I'm surprised an analytics-savvy organization is going with a defense that looks kinda big and slow (Larsson, Giordano, Oleksiak).

As it stands now, the Kraken will have about 40M in cap space. The expansion draft is just the beginning for them.

A top 6 of McCann, Gourde, Eberle, Donskoi, Jarnkrok, Tanev might not score a bunch, but they'll be a pain in the butt. But they'll add more bodies, for sure. Appleton and Blackwell fit that MO too and could move up to middle-6 forwards.

Larsson: 4 years, 4M AAV
Oleksiak: 5 years, 4.6M AAV

Locks in a second D pair.

Cholowski!


I was happy to hear that Seattle's pick from Detroit was Cholowski. He never really improved to a top 6 defenseman for the Red Wings. He's an RFA who has used up his options so he'll have to face waivers if he doesn't make Seattle's NHL roster. I hope this is a good move for him as he's from the Pacific northwest.

Hopefully gives him a new start.

At the time, the deal Holland made to get out from under Datsyuk's final year was fine, even good. Moved down a few spots, got a second rounder and moved Datsyuk's cap hit. They didn't get fleeced like everyone expected because it was saving the Yotes $7M in literal fucking cash(everyone seemed to ignore that part). But with the difference in how Cholowski vs. Chychrun developed, and then how Holland spent that money on fucking terrible long-term contracts for players on the very wrong side of the aging curve...it was absolutely disastrous. He should have rebuilt and the whole thing along with the other contracts set the team back a good 5 years.

That whole situation was a sham......from the safe picks and deals out of Ron Francis down to the cat out of the bag from News writers on twitter.

Trying to watch the "premiere" from ESPN 2 was difficult......where they pretended there was mystery and intrigue when in fact anyone with an internet connection already knew all the picks. Its was like trying to pretend that Santa exists after you've been told otherwise.

After all the wait and hype that was a poorly managed turd. :steamingpileofcrap:

Let's hope it picks up for the Kraken at the draft and in FA because that roster is barely competitive as is.

The only good part of the ESPN broadcast, besides Marshawn Lynch saying Calle Jarnkrok, was Seattle itself. Beautiful city!

Maybe that was meant to include the local firm Starbucks? Like a barista massacring his name on a latte? That would have been funny.

And they picked a hell of a day to have an outside presser in Seattle. The weather was one of the nicest things going for it.

And who the fucking fuck was the clown running the presser alongside Moore? What a wanker.
