Ramblings: Final 2021 Free Agent Salary Projections & Seattle Kraken Mocks (Jul 21)

Alexander MacLean


The contract projections are further down the page, but in the meantime I'm going to go over my Seattle thoughts before all of this is outdated in less than a day. I made a prior run-through a couple months ago, but a few things have changed since then. My selection list (without any side deals taken into account) looks like this:

Opening night roster sketch:

Zucker – Gourde – Bailey

Domi – Kerfoot – Appleton

Jarnkrok – Compher – Donato

Gadjovich – Blackwell – Gaudette


Gostisbehere – Stetcher

Bean – Dunn

Soucy – Borgen




The rest are in the minors, IR or flipped for picks: Phillips, Klefbom, Kulak, Lyubushkin, Larsson, Lauzon, Hanley, Daccord.

Some of the reasoning behind these picks may not even become clear for a few weeks until future players are traded and/or signed. In a weak Pacific division, this type of roster could make some noise.

While we wait, who thinks this video is real, and who thinks it’s a diversion? Count me among those convinced the pick is indeed going to be Kerfoot.
