I know what you're thinking: Why not match the Kraken with the Seahawks? They're a perfect pair! Here's the thing: The Kraken is a young team built on developing talent and a solid defense. Pete Carroll's no longer the head coach of the Seahawks, anyway, The Krak Crew don't have that problem now.

Therefore, the Kraken are the Houston Texans. Both are the newest teams in their respective leagues and both have a solid young core. Seattle fans are banking on Matty Beniers (six goals, 13 assists) to have the type of career that C.J. Stroud is projecting to have.

Who knows? The Kraken and the Texans might make it to their respective championships and win it all. That'll only make the parallel much stronger between the two.
