Team Explanation
I think teams have learned from the Vegas draft and let a lot of players they want to sign get to UFA status at the end of the year. The Kraken won't be as good as the Golden Knights. But who did I get wrong from your team?

Players in the minors are on LTIR because I don't have a minors option on a created team.

Nailed the Jets pick. Seattle will be taking Jake Allen as their starter IMO. Other than that goalies look good. Carolina pick will be Jake Bean, tanev is a god awful pick with that contract. Flames pick will likely end up being Backlund or Bennett. Definitely better choices from Nashville as well.

I think PHI will either give up Patrick or van Riemsdyk, unless there is an expansion considerations trade

I'm assuming that Dallas will buy out Bishop and keep Khudobin. But if they don't, I'm probably taking him.

Dobby wouldn’t be a bad pick, but honestly we have no idea what dallas will end up doing with bishop. Allen seems like the easy pick, holtby could be an option.

Who do you think the Canadiens will be protecting on defence? They have a lot of defenders, enough to keep Mete out of the lineup.

Petry (NMC) Mete and one or Fleury, Edmundson or Chairot. Allen is the best availible. webers contract wont be touched

Sam Steel will be one of the four young forwards Anaheim will be protecting (Max Jones, Isac Lundestrom and Troy Terry being the others; Max Comtois is exempt). The question for the Ducks will circle around what Anaheim does with "the old guard" (Adam Henrique, Rickard Rakell and Jacob Silfverberg) vs. the "new kids" (Dan Heinen and Sonny Milano). I think that we'll have to wait and see how the season plays out, including whether the Ducks trade Rakell (or, less likely, Silfverberg).

If you're picking for Seattle, you ought to start looking at whether you're interested in Jacob Larsson or Josh Mahura.

I still like one of those defencemen. And besides, who else am I going to take from Vancouver? Motte? Ferland? Brisebois?

I personally do, I have them protecting the big 4 up front, then protecting Holl, Muzzin, Reilly and Brodie. Then they protect Campbell.

I thought Anaheim might do 4 and 4. But if Larsson's available, that's probably the pick.

So my choice is...
A. Two years of Allen and one year of Motte, or
B. One year of Holtby and several years of Chiarot/Edmundson/Fleury/whoever

I still think I'm taking a defender. No offence to Allen, but there's a decent selection of defenders here. Even Weber, despite his contract, has to look awfully tempting. That's the #1 defenceman on one of the league's better teams.
