    This would have been a better name than Kraken.

    Welcome folks. Very happy to see Seattle get a team, Seattle is my favourite US city by far.

    Love the "S" with the red eye, thats awesome.

    The jerseys... not sure sure.....

    Does Harry Potter belong to Norse folklore?

    It's a cool name. I like the logo. Welcome to the league, Seattle!

    I love the reimagining for the old Seattle Metropolitans logo incorporating the tentacle and colours

    Recent events may have swayed the board towards Kraken. I don't mind it though, logo is a little "meh" on first impression, but it could still grow on me.

    Whales eat giant squids though, so I like that imagery.

    Love the logo and jerseys. The name is already starting to click and grow on me after the initial amazement.

    Congrats Seattle!

    I have been an ice hockey and NHL fan since the '90s, but I have never had "my team" in the NHL - living so far away from the continent. I have enjoyed the midnight games during student times, playoff battles, exciting players and especially the goalies of the decades going crazy and standing on their heads.

    Seattle Kraken already feels different from the other teams. The north and the sea coast, the city and the name, the look and feel of the team. I can relate to those. Can you feel the love? I'm starting to.

    Would have preferred the Seattle Tim McCrackens. Can't go wrong with a nod to Dr. Hook. Seriously, welcome to Seattle from Boston, you deserve it, given the WHL tradition in the Northwest. Raise a glass to your first too many men penalty.

    Seattle teams need lime green in the logo IMO. Maybe the third jersey?

    Leafs fan coming in peace. Absolutely LOVE he name Kraken. I had mentioned it a few times on twitter not sure how much I had to do with them picking the name; but I like to think I helped ;)

    Welcome to the NHL; can't wait for you guys to get "Kraken"

    Congrats to the city of Seattle and hungry Pacific Northwest hockey fans! Welcome to the NHL.

    A ridiculously passionate sports city, I think hockey is going to be a lot of fun there.

    And what a name choice! The second coolest name in the league after the Bruins ;)

    I love the logo, the jersey and the colour scheme. I still don't like the name.

    It was mentioned that sometime down the road there will be a 3rd and 4th jersey.

    Welcome, Seattle. Let's hope we can get along better than we did with the Golden Knights.

    IDK cool enough name, but the jerseys and the logo are cringeworthy

    Almost as bad as the eye-bleeding Vegas jerseys
