    Sorry if this isn't allowed, but now that we have a team, it would be kinda cool to get to know 'local' fans who could in the near-future be the people we hang out with at a bar watching Seattle play.

    Let this serve as a “meet-and-greet” of sorts for the HF members that are planning on making this their first or second team. Say hi and tell your new family all about yourself and why you’re a fan of this yet-to-be-named team.

    As for me, I’m planning on moving to Oregon or Washington within the next year. I’m originally from St. Louis and have been a suffering Blues fan since birth, but I’ve always loved the city of Seattle and am excited to move to the Great Northwest.

    I’ve been a fan of the Thunderbirds for the past 4 years (they’ve been my WHL team) due to their awesome colors and logo, as well as this guy named Mathew Barzal... If only there was a way for both teams to be the Thunderbirds and use that great color-scheme.

    I’m a big Pearl Jam fan, a vegetarian (Sizzle Pie is dope), and a big believer in humidity, so I feel like this is the place and team for me. Here’s to the beginning of a long-term relationship with this new franchise. Welcome everyone!

    Have been covering this team for some time now and through the process have gotten to know some amazing people. The community is spectacular and although I grew up outside of a Boston as a lifelong Bruins fan... it's hard not to be drawn to what is happening. With my communications with the ownership group and grass roots programs advocating hockey in the region, there is no question in my mind that this team is going to go above and beyond anything we could imagine.

    I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and doing my best to keep you all in the loop- we are officially a fanbase.

    I grew up in Washington state but now live in the UK. I've been a Penguins fan for over 25 years now, but all my other teams I support by default are Seattle sports. My grandfather was a Green Bay Packers fan in the 60s before we got the Seahawks in the 70s. Sadly he passed away before the Seahawks arrived, so the Penguins have been like my grandpa's Packers. I love hockey more than any other sport. I used to watch the WHL games -- Thunderbirds, Silvertips, Americans and Chiefs. My family always has some hockey tickets for me and take me to a game when I visit home.

    Naturally I still call Washington state my "home" so I'm going to have support and interest in the Seattle team, though it will still be a lot easier for me to stay up and watch the Penguins since Seattle and the west coast teams start well after 2am! But I'll try to watch Seattle when I can.

    P.S. loved the Seahawks at Wembley stadium this year, it was amazing!

    Oh I'm totally stoked. The NFL and NHL are the only professional sports I follow so I've wanted Seattle to get an NHL team for decades now.

    I'll probably answer Nuge's questionnaire later. But I'm on my mobile right now.

    Lifetime Kings fan here. Grew up in San Diego, but work relocated me to Seattle last year and I love it.

    Kings will always be my #1 team, but as Seattle is my new home indefinitely, I would say it's #2 now.

    1) Age, sex, location
    32, female, Arizona
    2) How did you first find HF?
    Found the 2012 playoff Photoshop thread on a Google search
    3) How did you come up with your screen name?
    Having a username of a feminized form of a Coyotes' player's first name (or at the very least starting with the same letter) plus their last name is just a thing I do. Katie Connauton is for Kevin Connauton. I forgot why I chose KConn in particular. On Discord, my username is Christina Fischer.
    4) Current team, and which will be #1?
    Arizona, #1 forever as long as they still play in Arizona.
    5) Any players you hope Seattle will get?
    I'm biased on this because I hope the Coyotes can use the Seattle expansion draft more to get rid of someone we don't want anymore, so I shouldn't answer this question.
    6) Favourite Current player?
    Clayton Keller
    7) Favourite player all time?
    Shane Doan
    8) Favourite movie?
    Frozen
    9) What type of music are you into?
    Honestly none. I'm a professional musician so I don't listen to music for leisure.
    10) What are your hobbies?
    Music, hockey, gaming, gardening
    11) What do you do for a living?
    My main gig is that I'm currently the music director at a church. I'm also studying to become a firefighter.
    12) What’s your favourite thing about your current job?
    Making music. Since I don't listen to music for pleasure, I enjoy playing music for pleasure instead. My job gives me the opportunity to be paid for doing something I love to do.
    13) Married, single Kids?
    Single, no children
    14) What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?
    Being a Kings fan
    15) If you won a million dollars, what would you do with the money?
    Pay off the mortgage on my mom's house. Buy a car (something nice but not terribly expensive; probably an Audi R8). Build a high-end gaming PC. Buy a new harpsichord and a new bassoon. Save the rest and possibly invest some of it.
    16) If you found out today was your last day on Earth, what would you do?
    Honestly, probably nothing all too special.
    17) What is your hidden super power A HIDDEN SUPER POWER IS SOMETHING YOU DO THAT MAY SURPRISE OTHERS OR JUST AMUSE PEOPLE--
    I'm left handed. I think that counts.
    18) If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?
    Probably a dog. I'm a dog lover and I think it would be interesting to see what being a dog would be like.
    19) Next place on your travel bucket list?
    Anywhere in Canada. I've been to a few different countries but I've never actually visited Canada before. To be more specific, probably Montreal (for the culture) or Vancouver (I'm an Arizona native, I don't handle extremely cold weather all too well).
    20) What was your favorite holiday vacation
    Missoula, Montana for a wedding
    21) Worst Vacation
    Las Cruces, New Mexico (also for a wedding)
    22) Craziest thing you've done (legal)
    No comment
    23) Four people from now or from history you'd have over for dinner for a conversation
    Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Jesus Christ
    24) Fav drink (booze or whatever)
    Bloody Mary

    1) Age, sex, location
    42, F, London/southeast UK (originally from WA state)

    2) How did you first find HF?

    Not sure, probably for playoff discussion in 2008.

    3) How did you come up with your screen name?

    It's an inside joke on the LGP board because the Penguins were digging themselves out of a hole in early 2009 when Therrien got fired and the Pens were out of the playoffs and they went on to win the Cup that year. I was known for drawing this penguin with a shovel.

    4) Current team, and which will be #1?

    The Penguins since the early 90s. I'm pretty big on loyalty so I can't just quit them. But Seattle is my home city too, so I am making room in my heart for two teams.

    5) Any players you hope Seattle will get?

    No strong opinion.

    6) Favourite Current player?

    Phil Kessel

    7) Favourite player all time?

    8) Favourite movie?

    Hockey movies, Big Lebowski, Shawshank Redemption

    9) What type of music are you into?

    Everything but gangsta rap and screamo

    Art, travel, fitness, cooking, martial arts

    11) What do you do for a living?

    Graphic designer, illustrator

    Being creative.

    13) Married, single Kids?

    Married, no kids.

    14) What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?

    Abuse. If someone ever hit me I'd probably hit them back and be out the door.

    15) If you won a million dollars, what would you do with the money?

    Travel a little, pay off a house and have a screen printing studio.

    16) If you found out today was your last day on Earth, what would you do?

    Will everything to my husband, tell everyone that I love them and get my last rites, I guess!

    17) What is your hidden super power A HIDDEN SUPER POWER IS SOMETHING YOU DO THAT MAY SURPRISE OTHERS OR JUST AMUSE PEOPLE--
    I can draw!

    18) If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?

    A bird. Flying is cool.

    19) Next place on your travel bucket list?

    Greece or Cyprus, but I'll go anywhere.

    20) What was your favorite holiday vacation

    Family road trips as a kid

    21) Worst Vacation

    The time I hit my mom in the eye with a golf club and she had to get stitches. That or the time I got the stomach flu.

    22) Craziest thing you've done (legal)
    Climbed up a cliff that had a waterfall. It was legal, but stupid.

    23) Four people from now or from history you'd have over for dinner for a conversation

    Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed and Moses.

    24) Fav drink (booze or whatever)
    Everything but vodka. Vodka is trouble.

    25) If you could--who on the board or site would you go out for a drink with

    I'm pretty easygoing. As long as you're not a jerk. Anyone with good hockey stories.

    Hi there - grew up in Port Orchard, WA (near Bremerton). Became a Vancouver fan at college in Bellingham, and then an Avalanche fan at grad school in Boulder.

    Seattle is now my #1 team, although I'll continue to root for the Avs as well, at least until Seattle hits the ice.

    I don't know if I have have second teams anymore. I've been around the block so many times and made so many friends that I just have a group of allies at this point. The Sharks, Canucks, Leafs, and Lightning are all allies. Believe it or not, I'm also getting there with the Ducks after years of being angry at each other.

    But anyway, I'm hoping Seattle will be an ally and I really wanna play, so I'm gonna play.

    1) Age, sex, location
    27, Male, New York City

    2) How did you first find HF?
    The Rangers traded Michal Roszival for Wojtek Wolski in January 2011 (note my join date) and after googling the trade, I found people on here arguing about it. The rest is history.

    3) How did you come up with your screen name?
    I got an xbox 360 for Christmas in 2007 and was trying to think of a username for xbox live so I could play Halo with my friends and not be a noob (I still was). I couldn't think of a damn thing and frustrated, I put some music on shuffle. First song that came on: Bush - Machinehead. It just clicked. I've been Machinehead on every medium since then.

    4) Current team, and which will be #1?
    The Rangers, forever and always.....I guess :laugh: The organization itself, I've had my differences with, but I would lay down and die for HFNYR. I could never leave our fanbase. They're family.

    5) Any players you hope Seattle will get?
    Depending on where the Rangers are at in a couple of years, Jimmy Vesey and Jesper Fast are good players who would be on the bubble for expansion. Although, I can't honestly say that I "hope" we lose Fast :laugh:

    You can have Vesey. It's Christmas, after all.

    6) Favourite Current player?
    Chris Kreider

    7) Favourite player all time?
    Brian Leetch or Derrick Brassard....or it might actually be Kreider. One of the three.

    8) Favourite movie?
    Give me anything with Will Smith. I adore Will Smith.

    9) What type of music are you into?
    Heavy metal, all the way. I've been known to come home sore from the pit.

    10) What are your hobbies?
    Writing, gaming, statistics, (no ****, right?). Also been known to play Yu-Gi-Oh and learn anything I can about Greek Mythology.

    11) What do you do for a living?
    I'm a writing professor in college. I'm not an English professor; I'm a writing specialist within other departments.

    12) What’s your favourite thing about your current job?
    When I have a student that's clearly talented, but doesn't know structure, and I can teach them structure, and then they create something that's still their voice but within a coherent system, that's ****ing magic. That's what I get up in the morning for.

    13) Married, single Kids?
    Single, no children

    14) What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?
    Not being able to let things go. I can get in vicious arguments with people and forget about it in 20 minutes.

    15) If you won a million dollars, what would you do with the money?
    I would by my dad a nice ass car and pay off his bills. He paid for my education and I live my life debt free because of that.

    16) If you found out today was your last day on Earth, what would you do?
    We're obviously going to MSG so the Rangers can let me down one last time.

    17) What is your hidden super power A HIDDEN SUPER POWER IS SOMETHING YOU DO THAT MAY SURPRISE OTHERS OR JUST AMUSE PEOPLE--
    I write obnoxiously fast. I can do a 6-8 page paper in an hour if I get rolling. That's how I have so many posts. And I don't mean typing -I'm average at that- I mean my mind. I have alien brain for crafting an argument and articulating it. It's the one thing I had great natural talent at. I was born to be an essayist. And half the time I'm wrong (more than half!) but I can make it sound decent at the time.

    18) If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?
    Chris Kreider

    19) Next place on your travel bucket list?
    Vancouver, hands down. I've got a lot of friend up there. Good friends that I met here.

    20) What was your favorite holiday vacation
    Cooperstown, New York. I love baseball.

    21) Worst Vacation
    Haven't had any particularly terrible experiences in this category, but I got hopelessly lost in New Jersey once. Nice town and everything, but Jesus, I got home at 3Am.

    22) Craziest thing you've done (legal)
    Ate my own hair as part of a bet. Yes, it was the Rangers, and yes, it was here.

    23) Four people from now or from history you'd have over for dinner for a conversation
    Mariano Rivera, John Lennon, Mark Twain, Will Smith.

    If it was hockey? Gretzky, Ovechkin, Hilary Knight (I mean, c'mon...) and Kreider :D

    24) Fav drink (booze or whatever)
    Mountain Dew is the nectar of the Gods.

    25) If you could--who on the board or site would you go out for a drink with
    You ready? I'm gonna shout out all my favorite people not from the Rangers board and who I haven't met IRL

    @mymerlincat @Juxtaposer @DominicBoltsFan @DominikBokkFan @Bleedred @MattMartin @CantLoseWithMatthews @Raccoon Jesus @Sojourn (Been through the ringer with this guy, but he has my respect, 100%)

    Having spent 28 years in Boston and then coming here, I was absolutely floored how in to the junior hockey they are here. Rivalry between Winterhawks and Silvertips is REAL lol

    Live in Shoreline WA (suburb immediately North of Seattle city). Play in GSHL for 2 teams (lower divisions). #2840 in Seattle NHL ticket list. Seahawks season ticket holder for 15 years. Involved in pooled season tickets for MLS Sounders & UW football too. Go to a few Mariners & WHL games a year but with 2 young kids these are less frequent.

    Grew up in Vancouver and am a lifelong Canucks fan - until 2021 that is. Family had Canucks season tickets from inception for about 25 years.

    I live in southwest WA on the Columbia, with many trips each week into PDX for work and a handful of Winterhawks games each year. Aside from the Flyers and (more casually) the Winterhawks, all of my favorite teams are in Seattle.
    I stopped watching the NBA entirely after the Plundering.

    My fam and I are beyond excited to attend NHL games in SEA, a city I love to visit anyway.

    Hi, I'm BattleBorn, I'm from Las Vegas and I recently moved to Bellevue.

    While I don't have much intention of switching allegiances again (going from the Blackhawks to the Knights was something I never thought would happen, but Las Vegas was home) I'm definitely excited to experience expansion excitement from ground zero once again and I was happy to volunteer to try to get another expansion franchise subforum started here at HF. I love Seattle so far, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the hockey virus take further hold here. I've already gone to a few Thunderbirds games, I've driven up to Everett just to see where the Silvertips play, and I'm sure I'll catch a few games at the new arena. Plus, I've got the benefit of being a fan of the only team that isn't really impacted by the expansion draft, so I can root for Seattle to have a great draft and also not fear losing a great player.

    I'm also happy to accept any monetary offers from people in other potential NHL cities, since apparently NHL expansions follow me around. :laugh:
