    It’s not official, but probably as close as it gets. It’s all contingent on key arena being remodeled. The NHL wants to be here BAD.

    Yup. Seattle is a hungry market that would balance the conferences, which is the reason the NHL awarded Vegas and ignored Quebec City. I think QC would have better luck relocating a struggling eastern franchise like Winnipeg did than hoping for expansion.

  • No chance that the hockey fans who have waited a lifetime for the NHL will be disappointed. With the instant west coast rivalry’s the arena will be sold out before the season starts. I know I will be ready to purchase my season tickets as soon as they make them available. Just hope they go with a legit name, I’m hoping for the Metropolitans.

    Nope, having a team beats not having a team.
    The NHL is going to be HUGE here.

    IMHO the NBA product has been piss poor over the last 30 years, I personally don’t miss it much, other than having a sports space filler between Hawks and Mariners.

    10-9 is a ton of scoring. Could you imagine if two NFL teams scored 10 times and 9 times? That's 70 to 63 if it was touchdowns. At minimum if it was all field goals that's a 30 point game hardly "low scoring".

    Scoring doesn't have to "look" big on the scoreboard to make people more excited in my opinion. If all the sudden they decided each goal in soccer was to count as 50 points would that mean it's more exciting then it was before because scores would be like 100 to 0 or 150 to 50? Of course not. Anyway, I think there is plenty of scoring in a hockey match to keep fans interested that want to see lots of scoring. The Seahawks averaged 22.9 points per game which means about 3 Scores per game. 3 Scores in a hockey game is doable, no?

    I agree, the NBA product is pretty poor, with really only 2 teams that have any significant shot at the title. I mean why waste our time why not just go straight to GS Cleveland part 4.......

    Hockey, Im very excited for, It's a dirty secret of mine every year around June. I get sucked into the playoffs. I love the game. Honestly I hardly ever watch regular season hockey so interested to see that when we get a team.

    As for the expansion draft. They really set it up for Vegas to be successful out of the gate with the rules around players that teams could keep.

    Cant wait.

    Although I will say I wont go to very many games because getting in and out of key arena is a nightmare....

    NHL playoff hockey is incredible, probably the best playoff intensity and excitement sport of all the major sports.

    Can't even imagine if we got a team how awesome the playoffs would be.

    btw, anyone who isn't excited for the NHL?................all I ask is for them to see a match in person, it's a great spectator sport.

  • Quick question- so the potential owners received expansion paper work but the league haven't heard back from the owners yet. How long does it usually take to file this stuff?

    Probably no big deal but after the failed Kings relocation and no one bidding for an NHL expansion franchise last time it opened up i'm always a bit nervous. It's also no small chunk of change.

    :ditto:

    I've been watching hockey since 2014 due to the Olympics and the subsequent Stanley Cup Playoffs. It sounds pretty cliche when you hear people say that the Stanley Cup Playoffs is on a different level and watch that before forming an opinion... but it is every word the truth.

  • Playoff hockey is incredible. The emotions, intensity and feelings over a couple weeks is like the equivalent of if the NFC Championship vs the 49ers was a best of 3 or something, it's hard to quantify.

    The expansion draft rules have really allowed Vegas to be competitive out the gate, too competitive to draft a superstar ironically.

    I do disagree with those who don't think the NBA product is good right now. The parity isn't there, but the talent level has never been higher. You can turn on a random week night game and watch absolutely excellent wide open basketball with the best athletes the league has ever seen. The NBA right now is to be appreciated at the micro level and the ability to enjoy each game in a vacuum on it's own merits, as opposed to thinking macro level about championship implications. You can turn on a random Utah v Milwaukee or something and be thoroughly entertained.

    Parity and the decades old officiating problems plague the NBA product badly in my eyes. ....and Stern and Stern Jr (Silver) can go screw themselves!

    I might be biased but the NHL will be a hell of a lot more enjoyable to watch on a regular basis.

    Oh, absolutely the NHL is more enjoyable and I'd be way more pumped about a hockey team in Seattle rather than the NBA (probably because I'm a diehard Lakers fan).

    NBA reffing is garbage absolutely, and I don't blame Seattle basketball fans one bit for bailing on the league because of the powers that be. But the on court talent and product is the best it has ever been, and these new dudes are so petty and sensitive that it almost adds some WWE drama to the product. As far as a parity, you can go back as far as the 80s to most individual seasons and know going in that the champs were going to be either the Celtics,Lakers,Pistons,Bulls,Spurs,Lakers,Heat,Warriors (aside from Hakeem's Rockets, Mavs, Cavs, Billups Pistons, KG's Celtics). So I'm not sure a lack of parity is anything new.

    And really, is anyone going to be surprised if it's the Penguins again in the NHL?

    Some very cool options there, and some that will be dropped fairly quickly I'm sure.

    How about add an 'r' to Whales and bring the name, colors, logo and brass bonanza in from Hartford.

    Whales shouldn't even be an option. There is already a team named the "Whalers" which makes "Whales" dumb for multiple reasons. If you're going to basically steal something from another team I would say just go with "Orcas" with a big F-U to the Canucks and their fans and get that rivalry started with a blast...

    Man I'm actually really disappointed in that entire list overall. I really hope those are not the only names they are considering! :pukeface:

    BRING THE NHL TO SEATTLE !!!


    I favor the Evergreens. It doesn't sound generic and rather unique. But some of these are flat-out awful and sounds like they were poached from the create a team mode in a video game.

    No, it doesn't have to be.......and I hope it's not.

    I get that there's history, but naming a team after another team from 100 years ago that won the Cup only because the other teams couldn't travel cause of the plague or something isn't a reason to go with the same name.

    Plus everyone would call them the Mets, and that's a baseball team.

    Totems
    Steelhead
    Sockeyes

    Those are the leaders in the clubhouse. Also not sure bout the color scheme cause Vancouver already has this color scheme. Gonna have to change it up.

    Not much of a history.

    Some team won a cup here a hundred years ago? Why are we tied to that? No one has a connection to that name or team anymore really. That team was only around for like 7 or 8 years I think.

    Lets move on and name them something better, IMHO.

    I've asked this before on Twitter, and no one seems to have an answer. In what way does 'Metropolitans' have a connection to Seattle or the PNW? What does that name even mean?

    And do you really want to be called the Metros? :?

    So our team could represent the METRO Transit system?

    Seattle in 1917 in the area would be considered a Metropolis at the time, it was a City and the closest one was maybe Portland, as a real City Everett was a logging town for a large part.

  • Really can't go with Seals. There was already a (California Golden) Seals team. Not the greatest franchise, and they wore white skates. Ha Ha.

    K just to play devils advocate again. Thats as many championships as our Football team, our ex basketball team and 1 more then our baseball team.

    Also just cause theres already a Mets doesn't mean mean you couldn't go Metropolitans. SF Giants, NY Giants, LA Kings, Sac Kings, Then theres the teams that all go by "hawks" Atl Hawks, Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Blackhawks, but I digress.

    Do we really want to be named after a fish? Delicious and heart healthy but a fish?

    I wonder if you could bring up the T-Birds name logo and colors kinda like the sounders did when they moved into MLS? Not sure how that would work.

  • I would say the biggest thing about the “Seattle Metropolitans” is the Historical sense. They are the FIRST US Hockey team to win the stanely cup. FIRST. Sure nothing since then, but then why bring back the Sonics? Why that name? Same thing could be asked.

    In the end it doesn’t matter it’s not up to us. They can have a competition or drawing or whatever but that’s just a feel good thing to make it seem like there’s a closer connection to the team. When in reality they probably already have a name because they have to eventually or at least start the process of trademarking, Licensing, branding etc etc all those legalities and make sure everything “clears” and there’s no hiccups I.e Seattle trying to name the team Seattle Shock.. when the AFL owns the rights to Shock.. bleh bleh bleh
