"The Seattle Salmon? That is what you want to name our expansion hockey team? The Salmon?"
If they go with this , who do i talk to about my cut .
talk to my friend Chris
That's the idea. I read an article that said the owners want to differentiate themselves in the market. Every team in Seattle has some variation of blue and green. They want people wearing their team colours.
The Seattle Snipes..or Snipers???
The Wesley Snipes
Seattle Silver Salamanders, Seattle Super Golden Seawarthogs, Seattle Sorority Sisters or Seattle Ancient Extraterrestrial Beavers.
I'm scratching my head at the name "Totems", which is near the top of the polls.
As far as I know, Totem just means "sacred object", somewhat akin to a heraldic crest - it doesn't actually refer to a specific force or icon. You wouldn't call a team "the sacred objects" or "the heraldic crests", you would call them the "Thunderbirds", which is an example of a specific Totem someone might have. It's a general/specific distinction. I could be wrong in my understanding but this has tripped me up since I first heard the idea.
Seattle Maple Leafs. We can never have enough Maple Leaf story’s.
I think we have a winner
+1 for Battle Cattle
I suppose you are also a fan of The Rain City ***** Pigeons as well?
It's a terrible idea.
Seattle Neck Beards.
Is this a logo for a hockey team or an air conditioner?
I hope they either go for class (The Metropolitans) or something funny and unique (grinders with a coffee grinder as a logo perhaps). The nhl doesn’t need any more generic animal name teams.
On the grizzlies thing, vancouver did own the NBA grizzlies... so that might get that potential rivalry off to a good start!
By the way, for those who don't think they can't or won't mess up the name, let's remember there used to be a team called the Iowa Chops that went through a process like this. I fully expect something embarrassing.
Emerald City Elephants
