Like the name, color scheme, sweaters, and the primary and secondary logos, but do wish there was something a bit more octopussy in there.

I think the light blue numbers on dark blue jersey looks off in the mockups but would need to see how it looks on the ice to figure out if I like them or am just 'meh' on them.

What is dead may never die.

I do hope they have Game of Thrones nights, if that's still a thing when fans are allowed back into games.

They'll play great for 2 periods and then suddenly play like **** in the third because they're in a hurry to finish up and get to Star Wars night?

And if this isn't the official drink of the team, it'll be my official drink. This stuff is delicious.

I like Kraken rum. I could just put a straw in the bottle and kick back.

RELEASE THE KAREN KRAKEN

Not sure what ties the PNW area has to Scandinavian culture to make the connection, but I was hoping for something a bit more like Orcas, (maybe let people use their ORCA mass transit cards to get discounted tickets or something), although I gather that wasn't even one of the finalists under consideration. And the secondary logo looks more like an anchor than a spear/trident. But overall, I like it a lot, especially the use of the singular (Avalanche, Wild, Lightning), and the unique color palette.

Also, when I moved west - lo, these many years ago - I wanted west coast non-LA teams to follow just so I had sports in my own time zone. I picked the Seahawks and the Canucks, cos I love that part of the world. I am officially switching my non-allegiance from across the border to Puget Sound.

GO KRAKEN!!

lol

I thought the secondary logo was supposed to be an anchor?

It's an anchor with the space needle in the top portion...it's pretty dope.

Also, re: Kraken and the PNW...how many penguins died making the Squirrel Hill Tunnel...?

The Penguins' actual penguin died almost immediately. Sad.

I really thought Kraken was a joke option, and they would reveal something native to the area. It's like when Jurassic Park came out and everything was called raptors afterward. F*** jack sparrow.

Penguins aren't really a unique element of any particular cultural legnedarium, whereas the Kraken is. You wouldn't necessarily expect a pro sports team in, say, Flurida to call themselves the Loch Ness Monsters, and we probably aren't going to see the Fargo Hachikos any time soon.

The F-22 was originally designated Lightning II. :face:

If only you had mentioned California instead of Florida, it might have been the most mikey sideswipe with the most tif response...it's preseason for us too I guess...
