I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams, but if forced to pick, I’d have to side with the Ottawa Senators because of the home ice. The Seattle Kraken have shown us time and time again how tough they are to back due to a poor defense, and those issues are only magnified on the road. I’ll continue to fade the Kraken. Give me the Senators and the cheap price.
