Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

I cannot think for a moment that they didn't explicitly construct this as a hint towards the name, honestly. It's a couple of people on a fishing boat wearing fishing gear hauling a fishing net out of the ocean to find a goal light.

 

If they're trying to hint to "Kraken", they left absurdly little hint that it's "Kraken" and all too many hints towards "Sockeyes".

I could still see it being Kraken off this video, but I hope not. We'll see tomorrow.

If it’s Kraken, I’m waiting for the borders to open again and I’m engaging Sparky in an ECW hardcore-style match. Mike, you willing to be the Mustafa to my New Jack?

In part 2 of that video, I'd love to see a giant kraken with a hockey helmet crash over the fishing boat and hit a slapshot right into their nets. Like, flip that family water scene on its head and make it a disaster film. Jerry Bruckheimer is part of the ownership group, right?

That's kind of how I see it possibly going down lol. Exactly.

Here's why the name won't be Kraken

 

Calling it now. The Devils account tweeted a response to a response to the Seattle video, and if they spoiled it early they would look like major A Holes

"JK, @NHLSeattle_. We’re looking forward to Kraken a few cold ones with you soon."

Hoping it’s not Kraken, too minor league sounding.

This tells me Kraken

A...picture of water? How does that scream "Kraken" specifically?

No, we want it to be an awful name.

It's also water .... where fish are.

Also that's from the Seattle NHL team's twitter

I know that, but nothing about the image explicitly suggests "Kraken", just that it's a water-based name (which was kinda the obvious direction anyways). And the entire theme of the video is about some fishers on a fishing boat pulling a goal light out of a trawling net that's probably meant to catch fish. The obvious connection those dots would make...is that the team is probably named for a fish.

 

Nothing in the video even vaguely suggests a cephalopodan team identity beyond "on the water", but a lot suggests a piscine one.

If it's Kraken I will never feel more defeated by life.
