The Kraken could make a splash
The Kraken have been pretty mild when it comes to free agency and trades. Sure, we signed Burakovsky and Grubauer the last 2 off-seasons, but the team has yet to make a splash with a big name player. I could see the Kraken going after Patrick Kane once he’s healthy or trading for a star goalie (Anaheim’s John Gibson or Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck) or center (Mark Scheifele) as the season rolls on. As I have mentioned in previous posts, no team has won a Stanley Cup without a star center and stud goalie. The Kraken may have one of the two already on the roster. Do not be surprised if they do something big this season.
Patrick Kane, though older and not in his prime anymore, would be a great fit on the Kraken and would be a blast to cheer for. Do not be surprised if we see a move like this.
Kane can still play too. His winning pedigree and those hands of his would have fans on fire in the Emerald City.
