seattle squid would have been cool
Big fan of Seattle Rainiers, Kraken is fucked up.
An NBA team instead
you’re an Atlantic mythical creature
That is factually accurate unfortunately for me
Kraken is dumb. A mythological sea creature from Norway for a team halfway across the world? What’s next the Quebec Yetis?
There’s nothing controversial about totem poles, aside from the shame poles, which is just funny
Should have been the aliens from Pacific Rim.
they're called kaiju you uncultured rube
So for legal reasons we can't be the Sockeyes?
"...Kraken has been a bit of an underdog in the conversation about potential names, with Seattle Sockeyes seeming to be the favorite to be chosen. Hoven said the potential of a legal issue with an author who has written a series of romance novels featuring a fictional Seattle Sockeyes team could be why NHL Seattle would go another direction.
“That just then creates one of those legal issues that the NHL tends to try to shy away from, trying to secure the rights and that sort of stuff,” Hoven said. “It’s one of the reasons why they’ve been so reluctant to use names of the past teams and things like that.”
That author, Jami Davenport, spoke to 710 ESPN Seattle in January 2018 about the possibility of Sockeyes becoming the NHL Seattle team name after she filed for a trademark of the name.
“I’d love for Seattle to get an NHL team … and I have built this brand around the Seattle Sockeyes over the last three or four years,” Davenport said. “I got a logo, t-shirts, jerseys. I make a good amount of money off it, and I know how closely the NHL guards its own brand and its trademarks.
“I’m not trying to profit off this or stop anybody from using that name, I’m just trying to protect my business.”
The NHL awarded an expansion franchise to Seattle in December 2018, and there have been rumors ever since about what nicknames would be given to the team. NHL Seattle’s parent company, the Oak View Group, reportedly filed trademarks on 13 potential names in January 2018."
Cancel this bitch, internet.
Shoulda just paid that dude his money and took Sockeyes
Kraken is a decent name IMO
Man, what a dope lifestyle that would be
Bitch pigeons is still best
Taques wheres my team logo
holy shit at these books, titles, and covers
For a Maine hockey team, sure.
Seattle Kaiju would be a dope name
Rain City Bitch Pigeons is the best name ever. Want the Seattle Sockeyes but probably won’t happen. When I hear Seattle Kraken, I think of the Greyjoys and mediocre rum
XFL stole the Seattle Dragons name
lots of branding opportunities available with the kraken black spiced rum
I don’t have a reason why but I don’t like team names that don’t end in “s”
You have a bad opinion thanks
I'm going to be so upset when the colors are black and red, a scheme that represents nothing about Seattle whatsoever.*
*Posting anything about the Seattle Metropolitans means nothing to me
Is more than one kraken still considered kraken or is it krakens at that point?
there’s only one kraken you dingus
And there only ever will be one with that attitude, mister!
How could anyone possibly prove that
it’s hard enough to find one, now you’re going to tell me there’s two?
In order to be a real fan you must first drown yourself
Not amazing, but 10x better than "the Golden Knights" imo
Why the hell would they want to be named after truck window stickers?
You like the logo because it’s a complete ripoff of K-State’s powercat, hope that helps.
You’re bout to catch some hands
Unfortunately for seattle, Tallahassee (the premier hockeytown of Northwest Florida), beat them to it.
Kracki for plural
Bearing in mind the rules put in place, what would you have preferred?
All for these kinds of names. Like the Rocket City Trash Pandas minor league baseball team.
After further review, I accept and agree with this assessment.
When will they "release the Kraken". I want to see the logo
cephalopods are my favorite animals so I may buy a jersey based on how cool the logo is
