    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

    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."

    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
