    I mean, the only real requirement for a name like Sky is to include some variation of blue as one of the colors

    I won't lie, in the poll list, Sockeye's in the least appealing name to me. I would rather have anything else on that list.

    Though with the color scheme, I am expecting them to go with the Sockeye's route.

    Sky Blue obviously would fit but then what others?

    Any blue, honestly. Doesn’t even need to be the main color. The one that appeared on the website could work

    Sky is a vague enough premise that there’s a lot of creative freedom. I could imagine incorporating the space needle or mountains somehow if they want to tie it to the city specifically

    eh i don't believe it. #1) team said we would know some time before end of year with merchandise coming after words. 2) what the website has for colors doesn't guarantee it'll be those specific colors.

    The NHL fan vote website is using these colors. They definitely seem to be testing out how this looks

    NHL Fan Choice Awards

    I've been hoping Seattle would stay around a green format since there aren't many teams who use green.

    Honestly? Their hints are pretty ridiculous.

    This is so god damned vague, it is kind of a nothing burger. Plus, no link to the Daily Herald article, just a vague note that it 'seems to be in contention' It was also mentioned. That is a click bait title if I ever seen one. Trust me, if I find a good rumor with a quote or some interesting tidbit, I'd share it.

    Dave Tippett prior to him leaving to join Edmonton as head coach said that Kraken was out of the running.

    "More than 10%" isn't saying a whole lot.

    One team uses dark green as a primary color.
    One team uses Kelly green as a primary color.
    One team uses Kelly green as a secondary color.
    NJ and AZ use dark green as a secondary color for their throwback/third jerseys.

    But if you want to run with "more than 10%" using green, then consider:

    15/31 teams (>48%) use some shade of blue, 15/31 (>48%) use some shade of red, and 14/31 (>45%) use black for their team colors. Given the choice between a pastel version of blue and red and an alternative based around green, I'm very much in favor of green.

    iirc she never did had any problems if Seattle were to pick the name she just wanted to protect her books.

    I was expecting the same colour scheme as the Seahawks. Blue, with a darker green, and red instead of white

    Is there any color combo that isn’t being used currently by any NHL team?

    Purple/Gold?
    Red/Gray?
    Green/green?
    Purple/gray?

    Gotta think Green will be used as one of the two main colours no? At this point I'm thinking it will be Sockeyes. Sort've a weird name but Seattle Sockeyes has a nice flow to it.

    As
    I can’t imagine this is chosen. The average person has no idea what a sockeye is. Just like kraken. It ain’t happening. It’s gonna be a fairly generic name.

    I could see a variation of these being used.

    The average person probably knows what a sockeye is before they know what a bruin is.

    Maybe? But doesn’t matter. We live in an age of mass marketing appeal. Just look at the list of names from the 90’s onward.
