Every NHL team just released their protection lists for the upcoming expansion draft, so of course everyone is going to project how the Kraken roster will look. I wanted to take a bit of a different route. I looked through every team, and made my Seattle Kraken dream roster. In this case, the dream roster assumes any UFA’s they selected, signed with them and didn’t go back to their old team. I also didn’t factor in salary costs, it’s just the skill of the player.
After picking this roster, all I gotta say is, if this happened the Kraken would be absolutely stacked.
Alexander Ovechkin – Gabriel Landeskog – Vladimir Tarasenko
Taylor Hall – Ryan Johansen – Jakub Voracek
Yanni Gourde – Alexander Wennberg – Jordan Eberle
Alex Kerfoot – Max Domi – Vladislav Namestnikov
Jeff Skinner – Chris Tierney – Colin Blackwell
Ryan Donato – Andreas Athanasiou – Evan Rodrigues
Mark Giordano – Dougie Hamilton
Tyson Barrie – Kevin Shattenkirk
P.K. Subban – Dylan Demelo
Calvin De Haan – Travis Hamonic
I know a lot of these guys aren’t actually attainable, and were only unprotected because they’re UFA’s that will just re sign with their team, but it’s still incredible that it’s possible this team could be created. It has everything, great top end talent at every position and even better depth everywhere too.
