I am surprised by this news. Until now, Seattleites' priority in professional sports put hockey at the bottom of their list.

Fun Fact, via deadspin dot com:

There’s an expansion fee—$650 million, which is $150 million more than Las Vegas paid. (Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the fee is different because of the market and because of inflation.) Basically, this is the same process that prefigured the Vegas Golden Knights’ birth, and barring anything unexpected, this feels inevitable.

Seattle is the largest North American city without a winter sports team (NBA or NHL). They've been trying to remedy that for some time, and just spent tons of money to upgrade the Key arena to be more suitable for the NHL. It would seem they are more interested in hockey right now then basketball, and that the NHL is more interested than the NBA.

Also, a recent poll showed that Seattle has the highest number of hockey fans among US cities without a NHL team. (Can't find the link now)

The Coyotes almost moved there in 2013:

The NHL is coming to Seattle by 2020. Book it.

Im digging on the NHL finally putting roots back in the U.S. Northwest. Long overdue considering the market and economy. Hell Id delay my 2-3 yearly flights to Seattle, to drop some cash on a game, food, merch, and hotel. In return, they can TAX the blood out of me.

Oh the liberals here vote yes on everything. That's coming.

If they don't go 'Old School', and go with the 'Totems', and resurrect those awesome jerseys...I'll have to blame the liberals/millennials.

 

 

Amen

I'm partial to Steelheads and Sockeyes, but I'm pretty sure Mississauga won't give up Steelheads.

I also like the idea of Sealions so I chant ARF ARF ARF after every goal

Those are beauties. The only problem I see is that the first one has a totem on it which is a sacred object among native tribes of the NW. Seattle is the snowflake capitol of the world, so I am sure it will be seen as offensive: Not by American Indians, but by the Social Justice Warriors who love to be offended for everyone else.

Surprised Barista's isn't a choice have a big coffee mug on the front of the jersey. When a hat trick is scored coffee cups instead of hats are thrown on ice. Penalty box is the Penalty pot.  No offending any group as everyone in Seattle is jacked on java.

Totems or anything related to indigenous people would be cultural appropriation, it'd never fly nopw.  Hell, millennials think that "Friends" is "problematic."

 

Seattle Sasquatch would be interesting.  They could get Jack Links to be a major sponsor.

Oberto is from Seattle, so more likely them. But Squatches is a name I could get behind.

Friends is transphobic dude, I mean mam, I mean it

Way off. It's a Saturn Vue. 2005 or earlier. A passable economy SUV, though if I were car shopping I'd prefer something newer.

Damn beat me to it.

That tree in the middle of the ‘O’ of the OVG any indication that it could also be a team moniker - maybe the ‘Oakies’?

Then again when I hear someone say Oakie - I’d think of Okie, and the Joad’s from the Grapes of Wrath.

Clearly the team has already been named The Seattle 16 West Harrison's

Apparently in the land of triggered-millennials they dislike the possibility of 'Totems' being the team name...

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ftw/2018/03/20/fans-are-already-upset-with-the-potential-seattle-nhl-team-name/111140596/

How anyone can dislike that name, and this logo is mind numbing...

the millennial generation is for the most part ******* retarded (trigger warning)

Imagine if they decided to name the team the Seattle ChirstoperReeve'sLegs or the Seattle Number9's... would I be mad? Hell nah, that'd be like the highest honor ever. I would rejoice. Naming a multi-million dollar sports team after a Native American icon is celebration of Native American culture. It's sad that liberals want us to white wash the team name. A Pacific Northwest Totem team would be badass.
