Lightning Insider Erik Erlendsson joins Ian on Thursday to discuss the Seattle Kraken fortifying its team through the expansion draft and taking away a Tampa Bay Lightning fan favorite, Yanni Gourde. Erik believes that if the Kraken didn't pick Gourde, Ross Colton likely would have been the choice. He also gets into the process of the draft, saying there was no particular order for the Kraken to actually choose the players they wanted. Erik also discusses who he might have left unprotected to keep Gourde on the Bolts. All that and MORE!
