  • Metropolitans is such a cringy name. :x

    Please no.... reminds me of ice cream and metrosexual. Do we really want to be called the Metrosexuals by every other NHL fan?

    You guys remember the failed Seattle slogan, MetroNatural?? That didn't go over well either.

    Lol, yeah I don't like Metropolitans either............cause then people will call them the Mets for short, and no one wants that.

    I like Totems or Stealhead. Thunderbirds would be the best, but I doubt that'd fly with the minor league conflict of interest.

  • I'd like to stay away from any type of Salmon or fish in general, that just doesn't seem tough at all. My Salmon is going up against your Grizzly bear.... lol Sure "Steelhead" sounds tough saying it but in reality our mascot/logo would be a fish and that's not bad ass at all. But hey, that's just my opinion, to each their own.

    A tribute to our history in flight would be nice, like the Supersonics was, but there's already the Flyers, Jets, and Wings...

    Totems is the best I've seen so far. I like the ties into our history. The Seattle Tribe isn't horrible either.

    Meh, maybe.

    In hockey isn't there that tradition of throwing things onto the ice? If you name yourself after a fish you might have guys skating in sushi out there... :lol:

    Pilots?

    Someone on Twitter just said he doesnt want Totems, because we'd be called the Scrotums by other fans.... :?



    My favorite so far, the Seattle Kraken.

  • As a Canucks fan I can’t wait to have a team in Seattle, every year I go to at least one Seahawks game and then another trip for the NHRA NW nationals, now the possibility of seeing the Canucks there is awesome. Good luck guys, hope our two city’s can still remain friendly while being rivals

    Kraken is pretty cool.

    The Seattle Pilots was our original baseball team that moved to Milwauke. That name might be cursed...

    I saw someone put this together and thought it was kind of cool The Seattle Aviators:

    I like this one but may be too busy.

    Image

    Could use a similar design for the Mascot or Logo.

    Actually Kraken would not be bad, we have the largest Octopus in the world here in the sound.

    You could use the many arms as a metaphor for team work.

    There are a lot of cool art designs for the look.

    And can you imagine as they take the Ice

    Hearing this!

    Oh I saw that and it is supposed to be an Orca but looks like a dogfish.
    I don't follow NHL to know who has what.

    I think think that maybe mixing the combination of the Thunderbirds and Seahawks to create the new Thunderhawks would be fun and original.

    Yes..I feel the same and I like your name choice.
    I came with IceHawks in a thread from a year or two ago but yours is better.
    Thunderbirds sounds pretty good also and there was a Thunderbird long ago in the PNW.

    I was just driving home so excited about what is going on in our city and it kinda came to me. There are other teams with that name but I didn't know that until after I came up with it. I hope they don't pick some shit name is all.

  • I guess it all comes down to what Bonderman and Bruckheimer want to do. It'll be interesting to see if they have public input or already know with what they're going with.

    Please dont pick something stupid like Mighty Ducks or Metros.
