Seattle Kraken Expansion Team

Sort of Canucks? Maybe we need a color no one else has in the NHL, like cardboard brown. Or other bright colors like you mentioned.

It's opposite of the Canucks and while it would be neat, it's just too similar to be rivals. It makes us seem like cousins.

Look at all the rest of the grouping of rival teams, they all have pretty distinct colours that differentiate each other. I'm still on board for Vancouver to go back to the Black/Red/Yellow spaghetti skate palette. That way Seattle can have the PNW colours and match with their Seahawks.

Seattle Seaboards.

Whoa.

I know exactly what you're thinking. "Why on earth does he have nothing better to do at this time of day?"

I habitually browse SidelineSwap and just saw these.

Appropriate timing for this conversation of colors

Hold your Vaughn jokes ;)

Not only does the split outer roll bug me, but that colour combination looks rough.

Yeah, it pops more with darker blue.

This is probably the first set of pads with a split outer roll that I actually like. I still think cardboard brown would make for some interesting goalie pads. Surely someone would make it look like they have literal cardboard boxes on their legs. Puck marks would also look like shipping damage. Like so:

Ha, Sushi. 

There's been some funny, satirical name suggestions:  Sushi, Soy Lattes, Coffee, Hipsters, Techies, Sea Slugs.....on and on and on.

My eyes are drawn instantly to that Aviators scheme, minus the name.  This was my pick for colors way back on page 1 of this thread.   It's either this or navy/neon green for me.

If I were in charge it would be Seattle Sea_____________ (something) or at the very least Seattle S_______________.

Those would look so much better if they were neon green instead of neon yellow

I think the colours should match the Mariners and the SeaHawks. I like when a city clearly has a connection between pro teams. Like Pittsburgh, Pirates, Steelers and Penguins all have the same colours. I would prefer them to match the SeaHawks though, with the lime/Neon green.

I think a team's colour scheme should reflect the city and it's environment. Montreal is Red, white, blue because at the beginning, the Habs chose those colours, to reflect the French particularity of the city. It's France's flag colors (back then, Quebec didn't had a flag). When I think of Vancouver, I see the ocean and giant trees. So Blue and green is perfect, I never got into the black, yellow and orange or the Navy, Silver and Maroon. That's where I would start if I was in charge of the graphics for Seattle.

Exactly. 

Now imagine navy blue for that black.

Ska day, ska doo, your pads are blue.

Sorry for the bad editing. This was probably a world record for fastest edited photo.
