Nice! Not many NHL teams have a logo that translated into a tattoo nicely

There is a dude at the local sandwich shop near my office in Philly that has flyers logos tatooed on the sides of his head. His head is shaved. The logos are in the same location on his head that the Flyers have them on the sides of their helmets.

I'd snap a pic of him - but the last thing you do is snap a pic of a burly white dude with a shaved head that delivers for a hoagie place in Fishtown. So, use your imagination.

What would happen if they change the logo for the helmets? I guess hed grow hair to cover that up?

They're just copying Philly. I have a feeling that the PR team on Seattle is going to follow the VGK example and be too much of a try hard.

True, but if they can have even the tiniest bit of initial success, on all levels, as Vegas did, then they are off on the right foot.

For sure.  With the expansion rules we are at least guaranteed to get a great goalie.   All you gotta do is look at current teams with exceptional tandems and just imagine any of them split in half.  I think the rules are best set up for building a team from the goalie, up.

Expansion teams should have a chance to be competitive from day 1 IMO

Nah, they need to earn their lumps.

Also, I thought the name "climate pledge arena" was a damn meme. I can't believe that's the actual name of the arena.

That's just awful.

Wont get into the politics of arena names but for the success of the team, they need a chance to do something straight off some expansion teams were so terrible they never survived. California Seals come to mind.

Well it's one thing to be a crappy team, but if you add a stupid name to it, you'd be better off just heading to the local Harley bar and explaining to them how 'V'-twins suck...

Oh, I think you'll find a good amount of people that would say otherwise.

Those seals jerseys are in the same boat as the Burger King LA jerseys. Just horrendus

It will be the first arena, in the world, with absolutely no climate inside.  How cool is that?

Do you mean that it's carbon neutral?

Or are you referring to the lack of atmosphere? ;)

Interesting, the Capital's announcers were just discussing the Kraken on air.  The lead announcer said he loves the logo, loves the jerseys, loves the colors...though he's confused why there is no green since Seattle is called the Emerald City and it crawling with green everywhere...but said the name..."let's just say it's going to be a mouthful for us announcers."

I can't for the life of me imagine what will be at all awkward about a powerplay called the Krak Attack and a cute little tentacled mascot named Krakie rallying up the Krakheads in the Krakhouse as the Krakpipes play organ music.  What is a mouthful about any of that?

In all seriousness, I don't think the organization will be able to touch anything along those lines, for obvious (sophmorically funny) reasons.  I do think the fans in town will run with it all, organically, and it will be a thing. I just don't think the team itself will be able to use it or promote it.

I'm surprised it's not the "BLM-ANTIFA-LGBTQ-BIOPC Arena"

But no matter, rioters will burn it down within a year anyway, let's start taking bets now on what the next arena name will be..

I'm triggered!  I'll forgive you though, because I'm sure you intended to refer to them as peaceful protesters.

I love the term "mostly peaceful" as though it is at all relevant.

You can commit name-any-violent-felony at 2:45pm on any day and still say you were "mostly peaceful" that day...while still being a violent felon.

It's pretty crazy to see the online discourse surrounding all of this. It's exhausting from both ends of the spectrum from Americans.

I want Trump out so that I can try to enjoy social media again. But at the same time, watching the meltdown potential is he gets a second term would be super spicy.

Peace or memes? It's a tough choice.

Like him or hate him, he is certainly the most entertaining and content creating American president in history.
