NHL Rumors: New York Rangers to lose ? to the Seattle Kraken
Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic conducted his mock expansion list for the New York Rangers. Names of consequences he exposes are forwards Brendan Lemieux and Julien Gauthier. On defense it is Libor Hajek.
Over at Forever Blueshirts, we conducted the same exercise and opted to protect Lemieux over Brett Howden. In my estimation, the Kraken will take Howden with the Rangers willing to expose him to make room for center Morgan Barron.

NHL Rumors: Toronto Maple Leafs to lose ? to the Seattle Kraken
The same exercise was conducted by Jonas Siegel. Names of consequence that he leaves exposed are forwards Jimmy Vesey and Joey Anderson. On defense he has Travis Dermott and Justin Holl ripe for the taking.
Ultimately he feels the Kraken go for defenseman Travis Dermott. He cites Dermott’s skating, physicality, and top four potential as the reason Seattle takes him.
