What is going to be the name of the NHL expansion team in Seattle?


Leafsfan29-Embrace the drought!

Don't know yet. The last Seattle franchise was the Metropolitans but not sure they go down that road with Metropolitan being one of the four divisions. Totems has history but not sure that gets approved. Sasquatch has been mentioned. Keep an eye on patent filings. If I had to guess, I'd say they stick with the green/blue colour scheme favoured by other franchises in the area (NFL Seahawks, MLS Sounders, MLB Mariners). Don't think I'd like a neon green scheme but then again, look at how the then-expansion Sharks went with teal and it took off like wildfire.

Chris: Possible guesses (ideas)

Possible guesses (ideas) : Orcas, Killer Whales, Killer Orcas, Sea Lions, Sockeyes, Steelheads, SeaDogs and Seawolves


I've sarcastically thrown the name " Starbucks " around for years but it'll probably be something a little more traditional. Leafer has some good advice but doubt any of us will have an impact on the decision.
