The Kraken have successfully secured the 8th overall pick in this year's draft. When analyzing the primary area that the Kraken need to address, it is evident that offense is their biggest concern. The Kraken, who failed to make the playoffs, ranked 29th in terms of scoring among NHL teams, managing a lackluster average of 2.61 goals per game.

While they also need to make improvements on the defensive end, they have discovered a promising talent in goaltender Joey Daccord, and their defensive performance during the regular season was commendable. Therefore, the main question still remains: which forward should the Kraken focus on for their 8th overall pick?

According to sources, Tij Iginla, son of the legendary Jerome Iginla, could be the optimal choice. He's a solid 6 ft power forward with huge offensive potential. Tij Iginla had an exceptional season playing for the Kelowna Rockets in the WHL, accumulating an impressive 84 points in just 64 games. This outstanding campaign has made him an appealing option for General Manager Ron Francis.

Other notable candidates include Trevor Connelly and Cole Eiserman. Do you agree that Iginla should be drafted by the Seattle Kraken? Undoubtedly, adding formidable offensive threats to their lineup would greatly benefit them, and Iginla might just be the answer they are seeking.
