Locked On Sharks

Why Sharks Need More Forwards Before Expansion Draft



KyleErik, and JD look ahead to the Seattle Kraken expansion draft and how this could be an opportunity for the San Jose Sharks to re-make their team. We look at the rules of the draft, why the Sharks will need to re-sign some players beforehand, what the optimum strategy for protecting players might be, and if Doug Wilson could try and move a large contract in a deal. We go over the major trades of the Vegas Golden Knights’ expansion draft to look at how general managers valued their own players. We end up with our preliminary guesses for who the Seattle Kraken might take.

Check out the podcast on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.


We will also be having a mailbag episode next week, so drop in your San Jose Sharks questions in the Comments!
