How will the Red Wings stack up against Seattle?

It’s hard to determine how the Red Wings will stack up against the Kraken.  If Seattle plays anywhere near as well as Vegas did during their first season post-expansion, Kraken should be competitive.  They have a mixture of veteran and young players.  In the next week, Seattle will have to expose some players to the waiver wire because they currently have more than the 23 player allotment to start the season.
