Seattle Pilots please
It'll be like the Sonics never left
we made it 5 posts before my heart was ripped out
From the little I know this was a very Vegas-friendly set of rules and allowed them to get a bunch of good players, yes? I mean obviously they almost won the damn thing in their first year so I assume that's the case. Just wondering what it actually is.
Smart by the league give the team a chance to build a solid fanbase instantly.
yes. most favorable expansion rules in sports history imo.
Teams could only protect 7 forwards, 3 defenseman and one goalie, or 8 skaters of any position and 1 goalie.
Players with 2 or less years of pro experience were exempt.
Left a ton of talent available especially on defense for VGK and teams scrambling to pay Vegas to not select certain players.
So many teams had no idea what they were doing and gave away really good players for no reason.
Obviously most of the league will learn from their mistakes and won't be so dumb, but Seattle should still end up with a lot of young talent and draft picks to prevent them from being a doormat for 5+ years. Expecting them to replicate Vegas's success is asking for disappointment though.
Congrats Fancy and soulfly
Hopefully they don’t fuck up the name like half their list would be.

I would call them the Seattle Reign because I like unbearable puns.
Edit: After googling, I have discovered this is a NWSL team and I'm not as original as I thought. I have tons of other dad joke suggestions based on the things I know about Seattle.
