As the 2023-24 NHL season comes to a close, the Seattle Kraken find themselves with a crucial offseason ahead. With the team's sights set on returning to the playoffs, several key priorities have emerged, including securing the services of their rising star, finding a new head coach, and bolstering their defensive corps.

At the top of the Kraken's offseason checklist is signing forward Matty Beniers to a long-term contract extension. The 20-year-old center has proven himself to be the franchise's cornerstone, showcasing the potential to become a top-10 forward in the league.

With Dave Hakstol's dismissal, the Kraken find themselves in the market for a new head coach. Two names have emerged as frontrunners: Dan Bylsma and Rod Brind'Amour.

Rounding out the Kraken's offseason priorities is the need to bolster their defensive corps, specifically by acquiring a right-handed shot defenseman. This addition would provide much-needed balance and depth to the team's blue line, potentially alleviating some of the pressure on their existing defensemen and creating a more formidable defensive unit. Can the Kraken get it done?
