Kraken Jaden Schwartz sums up season with one word

Published May 3, 2024 at 7:00 PM

The Seattle Kraken are continuing their exit interviews and media scrums as the team and organization continues to sift through the season discovering the positives and the negatives. Kraken forward Jaden Schwartz discussed what he saw this year and he summed up with one word which was inconsistent.

He felt but the biggest issue the Kraken faced all season was the lack of consistency in their offensive game. Schwartz also felt the team could not string periods together which led to their downfall.

The Kraken completed their year as the third worst goals for in the Western Conference which stood at 217 goals for which put them at 29th in the league. This stat was glaring as their top scorer was Jared McCann who had 29 goals and 62 points. After Oliver Bjorkstrand who had 59 points through 82 games there was a steady drop off in offence which led to their demise.

General manager Ron Francis will have a busy summer on his hands as he has several key issues that need to be addressed. One will be a new head coach as he recently fired Dave Hakstol and with many prominent NHL unrestricted free agents on the market and holding 5 draft picks in the first three rounds of this draft, this will give the Kraken a chance to bolster their depth and youth movement.

After such a promising season last year and making the playoffs unexpectedly, the team will need to learn from this regression in hopes to getting back on track and having a better year next year.
