No team made deals with Seattle

I'm not even a huge Wild fan and I still can't forgive them for the trade they made with Vegas that year.

What a bunch of bs. Unreal. Team could have been much better. Still plenty of room in cap space to sign free agents. Who wants to go to Seattle though? Not I. 

I agree.  Definitely confused with some of those selections.  Ohh to be a fly on the wall in those meetings.

Definitely a head scratcher. I’d have to assume many trades will happen especially with how much cap space they have like you said

Seems like they favored some familiar Hakstol recruiting traits:

*  Building from the defense out ... Their D corps is pretty darn good.   Giordano, Larsson ... even Soucy who was easy to hate when at UMD.  All very solid. 

* Two way forwards.

*  Character guys, who were Captains (1 at the NHL level) and others in Juniors or college.

* Late bloomers, because you can get those guys for an affordable price.  

I liked a lot of those picks ... perhaps the non-selection of Stecher was a way to avoid the appearance of favoring ex-UND players (which was a criticism at Philly).

Dunn and Gourde were picks that I like among the scheme of guys that haven't had a chance to play a starring role.   

 

The draft on Friday - Saturday will fill in the blanks.   They may get that #1 or #2 center in the draft.

Goalie(s)?

Looks to me like they valued a big, quality d corps over goaltending at this point.  I still think they should have taken Kaapo from Minnesota.

Pitlick traded to the Flames for a 4th round pick.

I feel the Seattle is just going to to tank for two years then fire Francis, I would have fired Francis after that absolutely garbage expansion draft.

Feel they over paid.
