    This concept home/away jersey would look great (especially the logo with the salmon, and S - that would work with any color scheme).

    Good God, that's just hard on the eyes. I do not like that color at all... or the baby blue trim.

    Yeah - those colors are eye popping, but I do like the logo.
    More than 140,000 votes were cast in the newspaper's bracket-style tournament, with Sockeyes defeating Totems in the final.

    Either of those 2 would be great.

    Based on the jerseys I think they've already picked the Sockeyes.

    Those are mock jerseys. It has nothing to do with name colors or logo that the team is thinking of doing.

    Seattle may have already decided to use different colors as far as we know.

    These are beautiful. I'd totally buy a hat or jersey if They were the sockeye/steelhead or even totem, and they used these colours with that symbol. I'm a lifelong canuck fan, but our marketing has always been half asked. I may need to start sporting Seattle gear.

    Could not agree more. What is wrong with the Renegades, or Emeralds? So, they'll be the "Socks" yeah sounds great...

    Has anyone consulted the natives on how they'd feel about 'totems' being used as a name for a professional sports team?

    PErhaps they want a name that fits the entire state. Emeeralds doesn't fit the rest of the region. Renegades has nothing to do with the state. We have one chance to do this right. Screw it up and we are only rebranding the team 3 years later.

    Sockeyes is a native fish to Washington state.

    My guess is that if the organization decided to go with this name they would consult with the local tribes.

    There are a ton of "natives" to a state that should never be considered a hockey team name and in my opinion this would be one of them. I just don't understand the thought process around a name like this. Just because it's a native fish doesn't mean it's a good fit.

    Also, how the team colors aren't anything but some variation of green will be beyond me. How many more red teams does the league need?

    They call themselves "Sox" fans in Boston and Chicago.

    Except this is a tradition that goes back 100 years. I don't think plain old "white sock" when I hear "sox". I will never understand the thought process of some ownership groups, and the NHL marketing dept.

    If ya wanna go with tradition - then how about Totems?

    Green jersey to boot, but ya know - millennials will claim 'cultural appropriation' blah blah blah...So Sockeyes is a pretty good alternative...Just my opinion.

    Why would they have to consult with the Natives regarding a name that is something made out of wood?
