Islanders trying to steer Kraken to Eberle
Christian Arnold of NYI Hockey Now: A source has said that Kraken are interested in New York Islanders Josh Bailey and that GM Lou Lamoriello may be trying to work out a deal with Seattle to not select him and pick Jordan Eberle instead.
Kraken considering selecting Price
Ownership has given the hockey operations department the green light to select Price if they see fit.
They are considering it.
- Spector’s Hockey: “The #SeaKraken would be fools to select him. As much as I like Price, he turns 34 in August, he’s struggled in the regular season in recent years, carries a $10.5 million cap hit for 5 more years with NMC & injury concerns to boot. Sorry, you’ve got to pass.”
- Dobber Hockey: “I disagree. He’ll sell that many jerseys and paraphernalia in the first week. The injury is worrisome, not the age. Goalies that great traditionally stay good until 38-39 or beyond.”
Kraken close to signing a goaltender
The doesn’t mean they wouldn’t select Carey Price.
Chris Driedger, reportedly signing with SEA 3x$3.5M, has had exceptional results in a very small sample. It’s a risk to be sure, and the Scott Darling comparable isn’t too far off. #SeaKraken pic.twitter.com/RuFqLBV9y4
