When Seattle's T-Mobile Park was announced as the venue for the 2024 NHL Winter Classic, it felt as if there was no limit to what the league's youngest expansion team could achieve. How things have changed. Dave Hakstol's men are suffering, and as if that wasn't ominous enough, Vegas are one of the form teams in the league — you can watch Golden Knights vs Kraken from anywhere with a VPN.
The identity of the Kraken's opponents may just sting a little too. It won't be lost on anybody of a Seattle persuasion that the Golden Knights are the second-youngest NHL team, and they arrive at the home of the Mariners as the reigning Stanley Cup champions.
While anybody can see that the Kraken overachieved last season, such things don't tend to matter a great deal to general managers, and Hakstol is skating on ever-thinning ice. What lifted them to such heights a year ago was their strength in depth, but that's deserted them this term – not just in terms of contributions but personnel too – and they've picked up a nasty habit of losing after regulation.
How they could do with a Jack Eichel, who's inspired Vegas to pick up where they left off. Even when they've not been at their best collectively he keeps proving the difference-maker, and come tonight they could well be back at the summit of the Western Pacific.
At the time of publication, Vegas are -1.5 point favorites according to DraftKings.
