Seattle Franchise Launches Site To Help Decide Name, Colors 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun May 12, 2019 4:00 pm

The NHL\'s Seattle expansion franchise has launched an interactive fan portal site to help decide the team\'s name and colors.

The team will begin play in 2021-22.

According to the Seattle Times, a link to the site was sent via email to the 33,000 fans who either made season-ticket deposits or are on an extended waiting list.

Via NHL

Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariners all wear some combo of blue and green. I would love the new hockey team to match that.

A rumor is that the color Red could be in play.

Totems is the leader in the clubhouse.

The name Metropolitans doesn't work (Metropolitan Division) & has been shot down by everyone including Bettman. :wink:

That's dumb and typical that they can't use the Metropolitans name because of some stupid division name. :roll:

I hope they go for Totems. I believe Sockeyes was in the running and I'm just not a huge fan of that. It's like they want to be the NHL version of the Idaho Steelheads I guess... heh.

Though I guess Totems is too offensive or something...

Totems & Kraken are the most popular.
