Morning everyone. Tough start:
Early word is #SeaKraken are closing in on contracts with two UFA defensemen: Adam Larsson (EDM) and Jamie Oleksiak (DAL).— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) July 21, 2021
Not finalized. But barring any last minute change, the expectation is those players will be the selections from #Oilers and #GoStars.@DFOHockey
Well there you have it. The man Ken Holland had to assume would babysit Duncan Keith for the next two years has taken his talents to Seattle for a reasonable price. Recall that the deal seemed quite likely before they brought him in and, ever since, has been moving more and more in this direction.
Now, it’s moved all the way.
Adam Larsson is a Seattle Kraken. Thanks for your service.
FIRE KEN HOLLAND. AND BOB NICHOLSON. AND DAVE TIPPETT. AND SELL THE TEAM. PLEASE. STOP DOING THIS TO US.
