  • Stoked, now to learn the rules, the players, get some gear etc. Looking forward to learning a new sport, I know the basics, but will be leaning on my Canadian friends to teach me the game.

  • I'm all in on the Seattle Kraken team name. . . the "Seattle Totems" as a lot of people want just doesn't do it for me, go with something fun that could have the coolest logo of all time.

  • I was right, looks like this is the color scheme.

    Pay close attention to this jersey’s colour scheme. Told this will be extremely similar to what Seattle’s home jersey will look like and team colours will be.

    Thoughts? I'm kinda bummed it's not blues or greens, but I get that we have to distance the scheme from the Canucks. But still looks awful close the NJ Devils or Blackhawks.

  • Although you guys will likely be disappointed with the NHL style of play and officiating..congrats! The NHL likes to push the new teams into the playoffs and beyond so guessing you may have a good chance at a cup within 5 years.

    I gotta disagree there - the game is a faster and more skilled than it has ever been. Do you remember the mid-90s clutching and grabbing? That style was a tough watch. Nowadays there's room for highly talented young guys to have big time success early even if they are a little light - guys like Gaudreau, Pettersson, and Point - wouldn't find nearly as much immediate success in the past.

    If you can't skate and aren't highly skilled there isn't much room left in the NHL for you. Guys like Lucic, or the Hatcher brothers from years gone by are a thing of the past. You can't afford to waste a roster spot anymore on a Brashear or Paros.

    Not to mention 3-on-3 overtime is the most exciting 5 minutes in the regular season of any sport.

    Though yes, I do agree with your point that the expansion rules are very very favorable to the new team becoming very competitive immediately.

  • Can we please not name our new team after some accomplishment our grandparents or great-grandparents don't even remember? It's really an awful old cringey name. What the heck is a metropolitan?

    I think of our buses.

    Image

    And I hate our buses.

    PS In the news conference today Bettman already mentioned the old Metro name probably shouldn't be used, as their is already a division called Metropolitans in the NHL. Or something along those lines.

  • Sweet! I would love the team to be called the "Seattle Seals". There is a Seal colony in Seattle and since there are maritime animals in other team names (i.e. Penguins, Sharks, Ducks, etc) I think a hockey team named after the marine mammals that love to do tricks in aquarium shows would be neat.

    No one should have any warm and fuzzy feelings towards a name that existed 100 years ago, especially one as old and antiquated sounding as the Metropolitans.

    Couldn't even call them the Mets for short.

    Only problem with this is there has already been a seals in the NHL, The California Seals, who eventually relocated and merged their way into the present day Dallas Stars.

    Completely disagree with this. Although I think the league is trying a little too hard to legislate fighting out of the game, the actual skill level and speed of the game has never been as high as it is now. As for the officiating, it can be terrible, but really no different than every single other sports league out there. It's not even close to PAC 12 football bad for instance. Yes, the expansion draft rules are very generous, but to be honest Vegas had a lot of things go right for them and a lot of absolute stupidity by panicky GMs across the league that led to their success. I would not count on them repeating those mistakes. Expect middle of the road results the first couple years, maybe competing for a playoff spot at the absolute best.

    I root for the UW (Pac-12) and the Hawks (NFL), so the officiating in the NHL cannot be worse than those 2 leagues in a game in game out basis.
