Seattle Kraken & Arizona Coyotes Emerging as Trading Partners

The Seattle Kraken are having a very good season and are well on their way to making the playoffs for the first time in NHL history because of it. Although they certainly have taken a step in the right direction, it is clear that Seattle would benefit from adding another defenseman before the trade deadline passes. According to the Fourth Period, the Kraken could have Arizona Coyotes defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere on their radar because of this. 

Seattle can certainly use a player like Gostisbehere, as he has shown these last few years with the Coyotes that he can still be an effective top-four defenseman while playing at his best. His outstanding offensive production from the point would make him a very good addition to Seattle’s power play as well.

It is clear that Seattle would be wise to add another high-impact defenseman to their group before the deadline passes, so it would make sense for them to acquire Gostisbehere. Alas, we will need to wait and see if they do just that by March 3.
