Jordan Eberle is another forward who will be on the move if his team sells

Like Sean Walker’s situation in Philadelphia, where Jordan Eberle ends up spending the rest of the season may not be so clear-cut as the Seattle Kraken are yet another bubble team that could buy or sell. That said, it’s hard to see Eberle going anywhere until we get closer to March 8th, which will give us far more insight of where the Kraken stand. 

Should Seattle sell Eberle, they will trade away a player who has 76 career playoff games, so the winger’s sheer postseason experience should attract suitors regardless of how many playoff appearances they have made over the last few seasons. 

Also, like Walker, Eberle is due for an extension, so if the Kraken don’t believe they can keep him around, they could make a trade regardless of where they stand come the deadline. Eberle’s production on both sides of the ice should pique the interest of several teams, especially if the Kraken are okay with retaining some of his contract for the rest of the season. 

However, teams in need of more help when they don’t have the puck should be the first callers, given Eberle’s ability to steal pucks, plus Seattle’s sparkling 93.1 save percentage when he’s on the ice.
