I love marine animals for hockey teams, so Seals or Sea Lions would be a fantastic name.

I really like Sea Lions. DBroDesigns had a pretty decent concept oackage floating around awhile back, if I remember correctly. A little too similar to the NFL team, but still.

I was actually thinking Chinook but as reference to the helicopter. I'm all for unique team names. Seattle Chinooks has my vote

A Chinook is also a salmon species right?

 

BTW chalk be up as a fan of Sea Lions.

Washington is the Evergreen State, so why not the Evergreens?

Because as soon as they go on the road and wear white jerseys, it invalidates their name.

But when Stanford wears white, does that invalidate their name?  

 

If we're pulling from a hat, Evergreens wouldn't be a bad name to have in the mix, though the logo would be a concern.

If gold or wheat can be road jersey color, then so can lime green. After the Bucks passed up on the Forest Green/Lime color scheme in their latest rebrand, at least one Big Four team should go for the multi-green look.

Yes. Yes it does. And it's an injustice that the sports world needs to fix!

You might have me on a loophole, sir. Kudos to you on that.

They're not the Stanford Evercardinal.

Sorry to bring this back up after almost half a year, but another idea for a Seattle NHL team name: The Seattle Waves could work.

Whenever I think Seattle and the Pacific Northwest I think of nature.  

 

Something like Sea Lions, Orcas (if Vancouver ever redesigns), Voyagers, Explorers.

 

Or maybe a name in Seattle history like Pilots, Metros,

You've seen the Indian Head, the Winged Wheel, and the Skating Penguin, now make way for the Treedle. My execution isn't perfect because I'm not very good at this but I think I'm heading in the right direction...

Waves might be a little to close to Seattle's Cascadia rival, the Vancouver Whitecaps

I guess I wouldn't hate Pilots or Metros, but right now, my choice would be Thunderbirds as long as they can distinguish their branding from the Seahawks.

I do think that they should go with green (more of a kelly, no lime) and navy. As far as a name, go with the Metropolitans. It has historical value.

I think the Totems would work. It would fit in well with the Pacific Northwest theme. Only thing that would be a hiccup would be getting the name from the WSHL team.
