2nd Favourite Team

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KrakBirds23</b></div><div>True, I misread that. Given Gru's performance in the playoffs I don't think I'd do it yet. I still think Seattle does nothing major until the 23/24 offseason when you have contracts coming off the books. I also am not sure that signing another goalie is the answer.</div></div>
I will admit, after thinking on it, and as a fan of both clubs, I do find the trade somewhat intriguing! Lol Hellebuyck is one of my favorite players and I dread the day he leaves Winnipeg. But if traded to Seattle, that would certainly soften the blow considerably!!
For Jets benefit, in taking Grubauer back, I think they'd maybe get a better return of which is looking less and less available to them as this drags on. So I like that for them!
For Seattle, having an unquestionable stud between the pipes would be amazing! I swear I needed to take my shoes off last year to count the number of games Seattle won by outscoring opponents! (7-6, 8-7, 9-8) lmao! Not a recipe for continued success!
Seattle may have interest in Nylander (though I personally hope not), and a 1st Rounder is undoubtedly on the table, but seriously doubt Wright is available, and certainly not with a 1st as well.
IMO, the deal Seattle would offer for Nylander would be a roster winger (one of Eberle, Burakovsky, Schwartz, Bjorkstrand, Tolvanen I'm thinking), a prospect, a first rounder, and another pick. No Timmins, no Oleksiak. Again, not my hope, but if happens, what I think Seattle's limit should be.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Moss_Bucket</b></div><div>Where did this idea that the Kraken would be willing to move their former 4th overall guy in Wright, the same Wright who was seen as the 1st overall player of his draft? I just don't understand.</div></div>
Most of it comes from the idea (falsehood) that Wright's been a disappointment, beginning with his falling in the draft and then second because he didn't tear it up his first season---even in a 24 game playoff showing with Coachella.
Second, it's the idea Seattle absolutely <em>needs</em> a gamebreaking winger, despite being 4th in league scoring last year and having solid depth in that position, already.
Then ultimately it comes down to teams out there who see an easy fit for the trade they fear needs making due to financial restraints. . . . "What, a team with cap space, oodles of picks and a top prospect---yes please!" . . . "While we're at it, we'll take that affordable shutdown RHD from you too, please and thank you!"
Not saying Nylander isn't a good player and Francis shouldn't look into him, but seriously doubt he entertains moving Wright and Larsson to do so.
