    Francis is a near damn perfect hire for what Seattle *should* do. No use trying to emulate Vegas because it just won't happen.

    That said, I fully expect Brandt Clarke, Seattle Sockeye star in the future because of this.

    Was hoping for Mike Gillis but Ron Francis would have been my second choice. This team has potential now that it has a competent boss.

    I also like the new colors. Hope this is a prelude to the Seattle Sockeyes. Thank ****ing Christ the Seattle Kraken is off the table.

    Unless I missed something, I don’t think they’ve chosen the colors, name, jersey design, or logos yet, or at least made them public.

    Think the poster is referring to the picture of their recent hires all decked out in a greyish blue and red tops.

    I think Ron Francis was a good GM for the Hurricanes. He is a big reason we had success this year through his building through the draft. I wish you guys the best of luck with him!

    True but they used a lot of red and black in the Seattle NHL logo, and the jersey they presented RF yesterday was black and white. You may very well be correct that salmon and light teal are the colors, I’m just not convinced yet.

    they've been giving those practice jerseys out since the beginning. and the red in the NHL Seattle logo is actually the same tint as the website. Being contrasted with black makes it seem more vibrant

    You very well may be correct on that.

    It wouldn’t be my first choice of color scheme but whatever it is I will grow to love it. :)

    Just wish they’d make the name and colors official, start selling gear, and take my money already! :)

    Ron Francis as Seattle's GM? Great move! Francis was unceremoniously booted from the Carolina Hurricanes by New idiot owner Thomas Dundon...Francis was made the fall guy...What success the team('Canes) had this past season and into the future was made possible by Francis and his work...Its going to work in Seattle's favor to have an experienced ex-NHL player and executive take control. He has over 2 years to scout,evaluate and comprise his team...Sock-eyes,Totems,Seals...I'm sure Francis will scour the globe for talent and won't shy away from assembling a team that may have international flavor! Good Luck to Ron Francis and his staff!
