Shane Wright Traded to the Canadiens? A Shocking Proposal Would Send the Fourth Overall Pick To The Team He Always Expected to Go To

The Seattle Kraken's performance this season has been a far cry from their impressive 100-point campaign and first-round playoff victory over the Colorado Avalanche last year. Currently, after 27 games, the team has a disappointing record of 8-13-6, placing them six points away from a playoff spot, which seems increasingly out of reach.

A key issue has been the underwhelming performance of goaltenders Philipp Grubauer and Joey Daccord, both posting save percentages below .900. This downturn in goaltending has led the Kraken to explore options for improvement.

Bruce Garrioch, a well-respected journalist, reports that the Kraken's management has reached out to the Canadiens for a goaltender, indicating their active search for solutions in the net.




Amidst these challenges, TVA Sports suggests that the Kraken might be approaching a "panic mode," exploring drastic options to improve their current state.


In light of this, some observers have speculated wildly about potential trades, including involving Shane Wright, the Kraken's fourth overall pick. However, such a trade, especially involving Wright, seems highly unlikely and unrealistic.

Considering the possible trade assets from the Canadiens, Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau, it's improbable that the Kraken would include a top prospect like Wright in a trade for either of these goalies.

In conclusion, while a trade between the Kraken and Canadiens involving a goaltender is plausible, the inclusion of Shane Wright in such a deal is almost impossible.
