Please to god don't name the new team the Metropolitans. We don't need to keep on re-treading history.

I, for one, am all for the Seattle Kraken.

Bettman strongly hinted they won't be the Metropolitains

I think it's gonna be the Seattle Sockeyes

The biggest employer downtown Seattle is Amazon. So I like the Seattle Amazons. The sweater will have beautiful blonde woman front and back. Most distracting to opposing players and a real fan favourite, well at the least the male fans.

I'm sure Jeff Bezos will appreciate all the free advertising. Red Bull will probably have a conniption.
But seriously, this is a terrible idea.

Realignment was approved for Arizona to shift to the Central division. I wonder if it would make more sense to move Colorado to the Pacific and Edmonton/Calgary to Central.

that idea seems good. I've also seen proposals for an 8-division league of 4 teams each, which I'm all down for. The only thing that gets complained about with re-alignment is "but muh rivalries," which... I'm generally more about maintaining geographic rivalries (e.g. Penguins-Flyers); my goal behind re-alignment would be to cut down on travel times and also minimize time zone cross-over. Any history-based rivalries, I don't especially care much about; I don't personally give a whit about hockey history.

I thought of an awesome name for Seattle that fits Pacific North West perfectly... I know I posted about KRaken/s... So wanted to reply here to not just make another new post... I stumbled on this making a zone for a MUD if anybody wonders why its so random...

Seattle Chinooks or Chinook... Chinooks would be great since they would have a rivalry with Canucks so the name would add spice to it all smile. For those who don't live in Canada or wonder what it means... Chinooks are basically snow eaters or called snow eaters depending on who ask or region... Maybe its a Fohn, basically they are warmer winds that come into contact with arctic making things warm up... They can melt a foot of snow in about a day for example... MElting it or via other methods... Anyways I think it would be really cool...

Seattle Chinooks if I can't get Kraken, that would be original/fit region have a lot of ties to 1st nation or "native" people... Since it ties into their legend or myths if are into that kinda stuff... So it would be a way to honor them without a silly name like Totems which would be mocked as scrotums besides not being original or cool smile. I've not seen anybody else suggest Chinooks so maybe I'm just crazy smile.

Seattle Rain or Seattle Storm


For posterity, both names are already taken (Reign is women's soccer, Storm is women's basketball).
