Open Post- NHL Expansion Draft For The Seattle Kraken

The Expansion Draft for the Seattle Kraken begins at 8:00pm ET on ESPN2, Sportsnet ONE, SN NOW and TVA Sports in Canada.

Next important date is Thursday at 1pm ET when the trade freeze is lifted.  NHL Draft starts at 8pm ET on Friday, July 23rd.

Let the discussion begin even though all the players headed to Seattle were leaked throughout the day.  View that list below along with what Seattle is required to do.

I actually had much more on the expansion draft but since names were leaked earlier today, no need for all that extra reading.

Wings should definitely-sign McIllrath. He clears the crease!

Chris Fowler has a way of making this about himself.  He has negative comments about most teams.  Not feeling the ESPN vibe.

Took me about 20 seconds to figure out this was unwatchable.  Outside of games, the league events are a shitshow.  Putting them on ESPN makes them even worse.

Interesting sidenote:  the NHL sent out a memo two days ago reminding teams that only Seattle could talk to free agents during its exclusive window and that teams had to wait until July 28 to approach other team’s free agents.

He just called Anaheim “The Mighty Ducks.”

Saying he’s a little out of touch would be an understatement.

I just saw the ESPN replay of the Squids taking Cholo.

And I just saw where he called the Hurricanes “The Carolina Panthers.”

Not a great start, ESPN.

ESPN really look unprepared. Did anyone else have problems with the video feed.

I always thought he was really good on NCAA Gameday but last night was rough. Several times he got things flat out wrong and his banter/conversation with the players and special presenters was hard to watch. I think Bucci, Melrose, or Ferraro could have all done a better job
