The Vegas Golden Knights continue to flex their muscle as one of the best teams in the league, and they're not a team I'm trying to step in front of, especially at home. However, the Seattle Kraken continue to play winning hockey with their improved defense, and there's value getting them at prices like this. I just can't leave these sorts of lines on the table. Give me the Golden Knights and the plus money.
