Hello and welcome to a special expansion draft live chat!
Let's have some fun watching the draft together, even if there isn't all that much suspense left
Dan

Are all of the Kraken's trades going to be revealed tonight or not till tmrw ?
Gavin Lee
8:03
They ones related to the draft should come out today
Matt
8:03
First player traded by the kraken?
Gavin Lee
8:03
Sounds like Giordano might not be there for long
Guest
8:03
what happens if they pick a UFA like they have?
Gavin Lee
8:04
Some of them they will have already worked out contracts with, like Oleksiak and Larsson
They might also pick some others that they can negotiate with until July 28
If they don't sign them, they lose them
Ron Duguay
8:04
Is Strome headed to Seattle for Giodano (with retained salary)?
Matt
8:04
Giordano selected and traded to the rangers?
Gavin Lee
8:05
This is the buzz today, we'll see what actually happens
M34
8:05
Landy is going back to COL no matter what right?
Gavin Lee
8:05
I've always thought he was going back, but the gap there was real
We'll see if they closed it
Guest
8:06
Do they trade a Goalie?
Gavin Lee
8:06
Probably not if they only select 3
Carl
8:08
What does Dallas do to replace Oleksiak?
Gavin Lee
8:08
I think they probably get back together with Vatanen at this point, but it's hard to replace a player like Oleksiak (which is why he was so sought after)
8:09
Dallas doesn't really need to go crazy though, their D is so strong because of the studs
Carl
8:09
Their D is small though
Gavin Lee
8:10
Is it?
I mean they certainly aren't as big as Oleksiak, but Lindell, Klingberg are both 6'3, Heiskanen 6'1
8:11
They have big Thomas Harley coming, too
ol 82nd guy
8:11
Sure has been quite in Carolina.   What are the plans for Hamilton?  Any whispers?
Gavin Lee
8:11
He's still in "talk to the rest of the league" mode
I don't think he's going back to Carolina at the end of the day
Griffin
8:12
What's the biggest surprise selection to you? I’m surprised that bean didn’t go from Carolina
Gavin Lee
8:12
I would have taken Bean, but Geekie was probably next on my list. If Francis believes in him, it isn't that weird.
Sir Farts A Lot
8:13
You have to explain the quenneville pick to me, it seems at best an absolutely horrendous move leaving easy assets on the table
Gavin Lee
8:13
This was the biggest surprise for me, I have to think a side deal is going on there
Boy wouldn't this have been more fun if we didn't know the picks
Griffin
8:13
Real question is how are you doing Gavin
Gavin Lee
8:14
Hi Griffin I'm doing well
Deven Paul
8:14
I can see a possible similarity from McCann and Karlsson and how he embraced the bigger role, and how he could do the same, thoughts?
Gavin Lee
8:14
He could certainly be one of the players that puts up a career year in Seattle
He should be the shooter on the top powerplay
8:15
Not sure if he'll quite be a 40 goal scorer though
Fred Saskamoose
8:15
What do you make of every pick but the Red Wings being leaked?
