NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

Recommended Posts

Taking aside the feel-good aspect, this seems like a cheap publicity move for a team in free fall. Fans really don’t belong in a franchise’s ring of honor, especially when it’s already cheapened by Gretzky being there with the only connection to the team being as a failed coach.

Eh. While I agree this is a publicity stunt, I honestly don't care what/who a team wants to put into their own "ring of honor." It's more or less an Employee of the Month award. Want to put in a kid with cancer that spent a lot of time with the team? Sure. Want to put in your mascot? Sure. Want to put in the owner's dog? Why not?

I think people put way too much emphasis on hall of fames and even more unnecessary emphasis on team's individual ring of whatevers. Anybody spending substantial time arguing against "honoring" an athlete should probably find a healthier obsession.

The Kraken really got crackin' in joining the NHL.

 

They just got sued by a Seattle establishment called the Kraken Bar & Lounge because the team was going to name the restaurant at their practice facility the "Kraken Bar & Grill", and now according to a tweet, have decided to name the restaurant a different thing because of the lawsuit.

Haven't even taken the ice and they've already pulled an OITGDNHL moment. Really fitting in snug as a bug, they are. 😜

So I may be the odd one out (Maybe not idk?) but I really find the the Seattle Kraken to be a lame NHL name. It fine for something like the NLL or even Arena Football, but for the NHL, I was expecting something better. When I was a kid, I remember created a fictional hockey team from Seattle the Emerald Dragons. Maybe they had something else planned for the team name but the Kraken feels like a dud.

Dude I been on and off here for over a year or so. But I usually keep my opinions to myself, which is something I like to stop doing as I had people complain to me about stuff and when I tell them my though they get annoyed and walk off. (To be fair, I rarely comment on stuff here since I like seeing and reading other people thoughts on stuff. Basically I'm the Silent Bob of the forums). 

 

To be fair, I honestly find the name, and mostly the logo, as lame. But maybe it because I loved the Golden Knights logo and name so much I was expecting something more with Seattle. That's what I get for having my hopes up...

Terrible name; great logo.

If it weren't for Chris Johnston's report on Saturday Headlines I'd say something along the lines of "offering two TV packages, then making a huge celebration for the A package to the point no one else wants the B package and you end up with just one broadcast partner anyway would probably get real peak OITGDNHL," but it's looking like Fox will save me from posting that later this week if nothing else was coming out about those negotiations

It's the NHL on HBO Max and they're still not getting $15 a month from me for it.

I wonder if the Seattle hockey club got one of those old school coupon books that a bank would send you for installment loans. I could see the NHL doing that.

Proof that the Habs need to protect Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau and expose Price. They just admitted that Allen is better and they're interested.

Even if Price waives his NMC in order to be exposed, I can't imagine Seattle would be wanting to take on his contract without some extra incentives from Montreal.
