Ep.406: Expansion Draft Takeaways

Ryan Lambert and Jack Fraser join the show to discuss what Seattle chose to do at the expansion draft, how the Kraken will look in Year 1, what their next steps are, and specific picks that we found notable for either good or bad reasons. Topics include:

  • The value of financial flexibility moving forward
  • How they can spend the cap space they now have
  • Forgoing bigger names with bigger price tags
  • The strong defensive players they targeted
  • The risk and reward of their goalie choices
  • Picks we liked
  • Picks we didn’t like
  • Why there weren’t more side deals along the way
  • How good their projection should be for Year 1
  • The ideal ways for them to improve moving forward
