    Damn, I think they nailed it.

    Can't be easy to come up with a new name. I feel like every time I hear an idea I think about those funny names you see in the NHL video games. Didn't with this one.

    Could be worse. Could have called themselves the Seattle Hockey Team.

    Unleash the Kraken.

    Great color scheme too.

    They put an envelope of five finalist names into a time capsule in the Seattle Space needle as well. I will be in my mid 70's when they open it in 2062.

    I had a chuckle at their twitter bio too:
    "now that we have a name, we're strategizing all the ways to draft your favorite player"

    Hey Seattle, Justin Abdelkader is our best player, we sure would hate it if you draft him!

    The color scheme is absolutely hideous. Primary logo sucks. As debut uniforms go, this one is up there with the Thrashers as one of the worst I've ever seen.

    Huh, you're the first person I've heard from that doesn't love it

    Well, 2. One person here didnt like it but it is otherwise well received

    https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/...olors-uniforms

    They're gonna be my number 2 team for sure! I love the city too, been there a couple of times and it's a lot of fun.

    With that type of technology they have where they project the videos onto the playing surface I am sure they can come up with something cool.

    I'm honestly shocked at how much praise the uniforms are getting.

    I think they fit well with the name and city.

    Maybe that's it?

    Also the sneaky negative area tentacles, the really cool way of implementing the space needle in the anchor, etc.

    Cool release videos? Lol.


    The name had me, this is definitely going to be my 2nd favorite team because imo it's the best nickname in sports. So I'm admittedly biased!

    This is the second NHL team to be named after a cryptid (an animal who's existence is in doubt). The other is the New Jersey Devils, named after the Jersey Devil.

    The S logo doesn't really convey a kraken, which is supposed to be a super-giant squid. Maybe the S is supposed to be a tentacle, but then the eye wouldn't make sense. A caller on the radio last night thought a kraken was a dragon because of the logo.
