    I’m curious what people’s opinion is on everything announced. Personally, I love the jersey, but hate the name

    Are there emotions besides hate or love?

    Neutral on the jerseys because I hate the colours. Closest thing to green on that jersey is turquoise.

    They should have a green alternate.

    Kraken was not my favorite name.

    But after the reveal, I really like the logo, color scheme, and the home jersey. So I am now a fan of Kraken.

    The logo reminds me of a certain type of content my friends like to watch once in a while...

    All good with this. Kraken wasn't my first choice but I understand the decision and the need to market.

    I am a fan of the name and jerseys. I do think that the secondary logo with the anchor, space needle combination is amazing. The "S" I am just sort of meh on.

    I'm from Canada but hate the name Kraken. Is that a brand that resonates in the NW?

    Love the logo, but I hate how they keep making Space Needle references in Seattle, but what amazed me is how they made it into an anchor which was the best way to do with within this logo.

    I don't like the name, the colours are nice although I wish green were to be included as I do understand the Canucks have the green.

    They also better use a Washington Ferry horn as their goal horn.

    As someone who is loyal to a fault, it was going to always be tough for me to go from being a Sharks fan to the Seattle fan. Even though this would be my local team. The one name that I was always partial to was Kraken.

    I just saw the reveal and both the logo and colors have me sold. I have not yet looked at the jersey but I am now on the fence about being a Seattle Kraken fan. That is how much I like the name and logo.

    I'll just say this and I'll bow out.

    I dislike the name, a lot actually. I'm shocked it was even in the running in the first place and thought it was put there as a joke or something. I didn't "dig" the other choices in the first place but Kraken was easily my least favorite. The fact that they went with it? Just wow, not a fan.

    The colors are fine, I guess. I like Dark Blue. The light blue not so much but at least it's not the primary color (at least not yet). I guess the jersey is fine.

    The logo? I don't "hate" it as in the poll option, but I don't like it and I'm not neutral on it either.

    But, if you guys like it, then that's great. Welcome aboard and see you in 2021!

    I think logos, colors and names are all very subjective. Not sure which team you are a fan of but hope the Kraken give you more reason to hate them than just the logo/colors/names. :)

    I told a friend I would make them my second team if they went with Kraken.

    Hurricanes fan.

    I certainly wish the Kraken well on the ice except against the Canes. I'm hoping Francis is a good GM for you guys, he did a lot of little things to help push the Canes back into relevance after Rutherford dug them a deep hole before he left.

    Good luck and see you in Raleigh! We'll save you some BBQ sandwiches! :cheers:

    Outside perspective looking in....

    Kinda like the overall look, though I think the name will age poorly over the next couple decades.

    Not bad on the first jersey pic I found. Never was as fan of the Kracken name but I will buy a hat as soon as I find them.

    Love the jerseys, the logo, the colours - all fantastic imo. The teal is super sharp. Logo is awesome imo.


    I really dislike the name. It’s silly

    I think it'll be like the Toronto Raptors - another team that went with a trendy and unique name (Jurassic Park had come out one year before they picked the name).

    Over the next 5-10 years it will start to sound more cheesy and be less popular. But if you stick with it to about 20 years it will swing back to being loved.

    I think the name is silly and cool but that why I like it. It going to be a fun one to use. I love the colors, I do like the different kind of blues they used. But overall jersey I think the design too plain.
