Kraken Set Sights On Sharks Star Forward

The Seattle Kraken is having a tremendous season in just their second season as a franchise. Through 47 games, they have already surpassed their points total from last year. They are currently first in the Pacific Division with a 28-14-5 record and 61 points. Thanks to their early success, a playoff berth is on the horizon for the Kraken. General manager Ron Francis has a decision to make thanks to this team’s success, as the March 3rd trade deadline is now only five weeks away.

The Kraken have been heavily linked to several players over the last few weeks, with Bo Horvat being the biggest name. It seems they have begun to shift their focus to Sharks star forward Timo Meier.

Unlike Horvat and the Canucks, the San Jose Sharks have granted Meier’s agent permission to start talking to teams. If the Kraken are going to go all in on a player, they will want reassurance that the player will not be just a rental.

Meier is a pending restricted free agent who is due a $10 million qualifying offer which would have hurt his trade value. Now that Sharks general manager Mike Grier has granted permission, teams can begin to work out a long-term extension, making the trade worth it.

Timo Meier is having a career year scoring 28 goals and tallying 20 assists for 48 points in 49 games. Meier would instantly upgrade the Kraken’s top six, giving rookie sensation Matty Beniers a lethal scoring threat on his right wing.

Expect any package heading back to San Jose to include a first-round pick and top prospect, along with one roster player who can dress for the Sharks for the remainder of at least this season.
