1) Is that red or salmon?

 

2) These jerseys are really nice, but I would have gone with a navy S on the white shirt.

As a seattlite. Hate the name.  Love the branding.

 

Logo is good not great. Secondary anchorneedle is great.

 

I was expecting more modern crazy uniforms for a team names Kraken.

The Mariners wished they thought of the anchor logo.

According to their website it's "Red Alert" so red.

Amazing how they got away with a blue based jersey in a division with the Oilers and the Canucks. Can lump the Sharks in that group with their teal. 

 

Disappointed in the name, surprisingly pleased with the branding and jersey.

I agree with the consensus that this is one hell of a mixed bag.

 

I wont rewrite everything that I put down on the other thread, but I'll just say that the Kraken name is deeply flawed. That being said, the branding is solid and I'm looking forward to seeing the secondary anchor/space needle popping up everywhere. The colors are unique while still being Seattle-esque, and different enough from Vancouver to not cause any confusion. My hope for the team a this point is that the branding is strong enough that everyone will forget how awful the team name is in the long run...that being said, ask Minnesota how that process is going.

 

Welcome to the darkest timeline.

I’m irrationally angry at this. I don’t even know what else to say other than I have no idea how a group of extremely smart people lock themselves in a room and decide on this Mickey Mouse bull****. It’s like when old people (I’m old too) try to be cool. This is an SPHL name/identity at best, and I have no idea how that’s not apparent to everyone involved in the decision making process.

Also I called the nickname too to be Kraken... and yet I don't get the credit.

 

"Oh but Kraken is a bad name" So is Sockeyes and assuming the delay was to find a better colour scheme than the Salmon and Teal.

The Double Blue and Red works.

Psst... you. Yeah, you. Wanna know a secret?

 

You don't have to hate everything.

 

The name is fine, and the uniforms and logos are spectacular.

THIS. Thank you.

 

SO tired of this community sh**ting on absolutely everything that every team ever does. Meanwhile, they'll go into the concepts thread and praise and drool over every sub standard uninspiring logo or uniform somebody creates here.

But the name is spectacularly bad...

The hyperbole and toxicity in this thread reminds me why I don't hang out in this part of the boards anymore.

I wonder if they'll go with a Ice Blue alt, Shadow Blue alt, or Red Alert alt.

 

F the names and whoever came up with them, but they're great colors.

Still say that this (in navy and with the S logo) would be an amazing arena product. Think of the fans around the penalty box wearing them!

You're not enlightened for being a contrarian either.

 

I'd rather be a contrarian than a curmudgeon.
