Seattle Kraken

Now, it seems unfair to compare the San Jose Sharks getting beaten on Father's Day compared to the Seattle Kraken. After all, the newest team in the Pacific Northwest doesn't have much history behind them. That is unless you consider upsetting the former Stanley Cup champions, the Colorado Avalanche, and coming within a couple of goals of making the Western Conference Final.

But that's the case for the Kraken against the Vegas Golden Knights. Historically, Vegas has a record of 10-2 with a points percentage of .833. However, one thing Seattle hockey fans can hang their hats on is they won the Winter Classic, defeating Vegas at T-Mobile Park, 3-0. Joey Daccord got the shutout that game, besting a Golden Knights team ravaged by injuries.

Still, the comparison between Vegas and Seattle draws up an interesting point about both recent expansion teams. That starts with how the Golden Knights have been more aggressive in pursuing quality players (see Stone and Jack Eichel). Compare that to the Seattle Kraken, who've taken a more traditional approach. That includes developing players and building a strong core. Kraken fans hope the payoff will be huge and lead to a Stanley Cup, similar to Vegas.
