CapFriendly has a pretty cool expansion draft simulator:

https://www.capfriendly.com/expansion-draft/seattle

With all of the big name players available, they could easily build a championship contender on day 1 if they wanted to, and likely add Owen Power to that (since it looks like he doesn't want to go to Buffalo).

As an example, I just made this team, with more than $20M in cap space to use to sign the FA's (although I know my team is unrealistic since they apparently want Driedger with one of their goalie picks):

Forward Lines:
1) Landeskog(UFA) Johansen Tarasenko
2) Hall(UFA) Domi Palat
3) Johnston Kerfoot Dadonov
4) Grundstrom Oglevie Barber

Defense Pairs:
1) Giordano/Zadorov (RFA)
2) Oleksiak (UFA)/Ceci (UFA)
3) Power/Hakanpaa (UFA)

Goalies:
1) Carey Price
2) Kaapo Kahkonen
3) Vitek Vanecek

First impression is that this team will be solid defensively. A lot of good defensemen with size we're taken. Will be fascinating to see what direction the front office go. The team will have a ton of cap room to navigate Free Agency & the trade market.

The most notable names taken we're: D Mark Giordano (likely Captain), F/C Yanni Gourde (via Tampa), F Jordan Eberle (goal scorer), and F Brandon Tanev (via Pittsburgh).

Giordano, Adam Larsson (oilers), and Jamie Oleksiak (Stars) should provide a solid defensive core.

They will eventually have to address the Forward/Center depth. But likely have their eyes on one or two in free agency & or possibly the trade market.

Good video. Also on YouTube learning more about the NHL to speed up my knowledge. It's strange I've always been around an NHL team in the Bay Area, but never caught on to it. Lived about 45 minutes from San Jose Shark arena and now I live 10 minutes to Climate pledge arena.
