    I think we had the name first! :D

    -The team was founded in 1971 as the Vancouver Nats of the Western Canada Hockey League (WCHL) but moved to Kamloops, British Columbia, to become the Kamloops Chiefs in 1973.
    -In 1977 the team moved to Seattle and was renamed the Seattle Breakers.
    -After the 1984–85 season, the Breakers were sold to new owners and renamed the Seattle Thunderbirds.

    I appreciate your sales pitch, very well thought out and researched...................but this is like a crackhead stealing your car, crapping in it, having sex in it and setting it on fire. You just tell your insurance company to total it out, it's not salvageable.

    Breakers has been tainted and ruined.

    Well, I'm just not concerned with Portland or anything about Portland, Breakers would be a great name for our team.

    I also think it's gimmicky, and isn't regional.............which IMO is important.

    I like Steelhead or Totems.

  • I don't care for any of the names that they have come up with. The only name I've got is.

    "The Seattle Sawyers"

    Which would turn KeyArena into the new Saw Mill. Ax blades for skates and painted on saw teeth on the sticks.

    Evertime we scored a goal we play the sound of a high speed saw hitting a bolt, like after garry patton droppin a 3 and playing that hot rod engine. Now this could work for me.

    Seriously, that octopus isn't very intimidating. You act like there's an obvious difference. There isn't. Also, how is a kracken even vaguely tied to Seattle's culture? At least sockeye salmon have a geographical tie to the PNW.
    why does everything have to be tied to Seattle's culture? Does Los Angeles have a bunch of lakes? Does Toronto have raptors? What does Giants have to do with NY or SF? How does the Ram fit into the Los Angeles culture?

    Oh and why? Maybe because the Team is in SEATTLE !

    You want the team to be called the Seattle Longhorns, How about The Seattle Tinkerbells, Maybe the Seattle Highlanders or Scorpions, then there is the medical ones we could use. How about the Contagion.

    Lakers came from their name when they were in Minnesota, Toronto was awarded a franchise after the first Jurassic Park, there were 5 Raptors working together in that Movie and it was cool at the time. Giants I think goes along with the Original Name of the Jets which was Titans, New York thing, San Francisco I don't know. The Rams were from Cleveland and Cleveland Rams, and played there from 1936 to 1945.

    Now you know.

    Doesn't HAVE to be, but a lot of people like that regional connection that makes the team OURS, and not just some generic sounding names that sound cheesy and lame.

    Most of the great sports franchises IMO have a great local backstory or regional connection.

    Totems, Steelhead, Sockeye, those names mean something here that they wouldn't mean elsewhere.....................and IMO that's cool. Kraken? meh, sound corny and generic.

    I just can't believe that is all those eggheads could come up with, I feel embarrassed for the whole hockey community in general. No pride here for what they've done so far. :34853_doh:

    Region - The Northwest, many consider Alaska to be North and on the western part of the continent, but some confuse us with Eqypt, so maybe the Seattle Pharaoh's works.

    Also last time I looked Salmon migrate from Alaska, you know the Copper River runs are pretty well known, the Columbia River is what separates us from Oregon which Salmon run in, and Canada is in between Alaska and Washington which Is part of the Region also, the St Edwards Islands.

    Yes, all of this would be in our region (Northwest/Alaska/Oregon/Idaho). AKA the region that will support this hockey club.

    Not sure why you're still confused. Steelhead, Totems and Sockeye are all regional names, thus why they're the front runners.

    If we wanna go micro regional and keep it specific to Seattle, we gotta go with;

    A. The Homeless Camps
    B. The Fighting Durkans
    C. The Seattle Gender Fluids
    D. The Angry Methheads
    E. Amazon's Bitch
