Entering Thursday's game against the Anaheim Ducks, the Seattle Kraken are at 71 points. They're far away from the playoff picture and would need a miracle to simply get in. At the moment, Seattle natives are thinking about the upcoming Mariners season.

Still, it's not to say there haven't been any bright spots. Aside from their Winter Classic victory, the Kraken have young stars like wingers Jared McCann and Eeli Tolvanen. This young group is growing into their own and will arrive sooner than most people think.
