The Toronto Maple Leafs have plenty of questions and scenarios to juggle when it comes to their offseason moves but have a bit of a roadblock to handle first. They'll be losing one player on July 21st as the Seattle Kraken will make their selections for the expansion draft. Once the Kraken make their decision, it'll make general manager Kyle Dubas' decisions for the offseason both more complicated and easier at the same time. We've heard that the Kraken likely have Alexander Kerfoot at the top of the list who was one of the Leafs' best forwards during the playoffs however they could also be targeting one of the team's defensemen. According to Ryan S. Clark of the The Athletic, the Kraken have basically nailed their choice down to two players. Kerfoot and Travis Dermott. "Meanwhile, the Kraken could have another decision to make when it comes to who they take from the Toronto Maple Leafs. Could they choose to take a facilitator like Alexander Kerfoot or would they look at adding to their defense by selecting Travis Dermott? Kerfoot would give the Kraken a top-nine center for the price of $3.5 million over the next three years, while Dermott is a pending RFA who should be cheaper by comparison."Which of the two do you think is most likely to be in Seattle next season?
