Seattle Kraken fans! The regular season is right around the corner. The first game of the regular season is Tuesday October 10th against the Stanley Cup Champion Vegas Golden Knights. Should be a great game!
I am super stoked for Season 3. The Kraken enter their third season ready to make a real push at a Stanley Cup run. Yes, I just said Stanley Cup in year 3. Is a part of this coming from my home team fandom? Of course, but I am not an ignorant fan (see Colorado Avalanche fans, yep, they have the worst fans in the NHL).
I have been playing, coaching, and writing about hockey for over 34 years. I know my stuff.
The Kraken enter their third season poised to make a real push for a run at the Cup. Aside from being easily the most balanced team in the league, the Kraken have a few wildcards that could push them over the top. The team retained the majority of its roster from last season while making improvements here and there. Obviously injuries play a massive role in team success.
