Word Through the Grapevine: Jarnkrok to Seattle

Word is that the Seattle Kraken will select Calle Jarnkrok tonight in the Expansion Draft.

Many thought this would be the case, but I did not necessarily see it as I would have gone a different direction personally.

Jarnkrok has been incredibly consistent, but I will continue to state that I am partial to keeping Sissons if I had to choose between the two. It will be interesting to see the overall dynamic of what Seattle and Ron Francis are going for once everything is official official and not insider official.

I still find this to be only the tip of the iceberg and believe that there were many side deals and that this summer is far from cooling off. Seattle also does not appear to be interested in any of the exposed big contracts, a wise decision in a presumable flat-cap era and a new franchise.

Anyways, a more in-depth blog will be posted after the official Expansion as I will still watch for the fun spectacle, but wanted to post about Jarnkrok as many here were sure it would be Sissons. Myself included. We shall see!

More to come!
