The Vegas Golden Knights are your defending Stanley Cup champions. Last season, they dismantled the Florida Panthers, 4-1, to raise Lord Stanley. The Golden Knights just had a busy trade deadline, hoping to repeat as the champions.

The Seattle Kraken have a young core that took down the Colorado Avalanche in last season's Stanley Cup playoffs. Led by a motley crew of Matty Beniers and Jared McCann, the Kraken are poised to take over the NHL.

That leaves hockey fans with the opportunity to usher in a new rivalry. A battle between the two youngest NHL teams, consisting of the big dog vs. the underdog. It's a David vs. Goliath story fit for a Hollywood movie.
