Three Seattle Kraken Players Have Been Listed As Trade Candidates

Published September 20, 2023 at 11:46

When reminiscing about the unexpected story of the 2022-23 NHL season, the Florida Panthers often steal the spotlight, but let's not forget the Seattle Kraken. In just their second year of existence, the Kraken made an astonishing turnaround.

After a lackluster inaugural season, the Kraken roared to life, securing 100 points and an impressive 46 wins. They triumphed over the defending champion Colorado Avalanche in a thrilling seven-game series and nearly reached the Western Conference Final against the Golden Knights.

As they gear up for the 2023-24 season, questions loom about the future of some veteran players.

Jordan Eberle, fresh from a stellar season, heads into the final year of his contract. While the desire is to keep him, cap space constraints might force a tough decision.

Justin Schultz, in a similar situation, faces the challenge of a crowded defensive lineup. With the emergence of young talent like William Borgen, Schultz's future in Seattle is uncertain.

In the goalie department, Chris Driedger's return is complicated by the rise of Joey Daccord. Driedger's higher salary could make him a trade candidate.

The Kraken's 2023-24 outlook is promising, but these veteran players might be on the move to secure cap relief before next summer.
