The Seattle Sounders name is already taken by MLS, so I don't think they'll copy them.


That's too bad. Suppose I should have checked existing league names. Some rugby knobs already took the Seattle Sea Wolves too.

Quote:
DetroitHockey.net reports 38 website domain names representing 13 possible team names were registered Thursday under the name Christina Song. The website reports Song's LinkedIn profile lists her as General Counsel at OVG.

Here are the names:

Seattle Cougars

Seattle Eagles

Seattle Emeralds

Seattle Evergreens

Seattle Firebirds

Seattle Kraken

Seattle Rainiers

Seattle Renegades

Seattle Sea Lions

Seattle Seals

Seattle Sockeyes

Seattle Totems

Seattle Whales

There is no guarantee any of these will be the name of Seattle's NHL team, just as there is no guarantee Seattle will even get an NHL team. As DetroitHockey.net points out, there isn't even an ownership group formed yet. But someone connected to OVG is already registering these names.

This could all be a very clever way to throw people off a little but I don't think it's just coincidence they chose these colors for the announcement on social media:

Sockeyes you think? Could live with that albeit a little stodgy.

Of all the possible names out there right now that'd be my choice. I just can't get behind "Kraken." :kraken:

Yeah Kraken is probably a stretch -- and the league wouldn't approve it, not in a billion years.

Oh I dunno about that. If they approved "Mighty Ducks" and "Wild" they'll approve just about anything.

Agreed, anything that will make a buck.

I'd suggest honouring hometown boy Jimmi Hendrix and go with the Purple Haze...or perhaps just Haze and make the uni's purple.

I like that the Seattle Haze......should be the Seattle Soakers with all the rain.

We currently don't have a purple team in the league (get with the program Kings) so I'm all for it.
