But not flawlessly, at least not for everyone.

EDIT on 07/24/2019: Rather than start a new thread about the new Seattle practice facility, I chose to resurrect this one. Wish I could have figured out how to edit the thread title.

Seattle's new practice facility requires the emptying of the Northgate Mall.

Requiem for a mall? That's some funny stuff.

Lots of space in this mall...

I don't know what the name of the Seattle team is going to be. But it looks like the AHL team is going to be called the Firebirds & will be playing in Palm Springs.

So. . . they are trying to negotiate/navigate their way into The Seattle Thunderbirds?

Given the somewhat minor degree of importance of this story, I'm posting it in an old thread rather than start a new one.

The new Seattle franchise will offer subsidized transportation for ticket holders. This should help with traffic and parking issues in an area of town that can be a nightmare.

Everything is going well except their team name selection. They keep putting it off. I've heard that Hydras, Krakkens, Totems, Thunderbirds and Metropolitans were in the short list and that the colors are leaning toward blue/green/gold.

What about The Seattle CHAZ. Or Seattle CHOP.

I like that arena name. Another good name would be the Payalivingwage Arena.

I'm OK with Thunderbirds cuz it's a traditional name for Seattle hockey like the Gulls in San Diego or the Aeros in Houston. But I would prefer Karkkens.

Officially the Seattle Kraken as many figured.

I hope they call the arena the Krak House.

If within three years of their existence they do not have a Pipe line, they have failed as a franchise.

Awful name from an even more awful movie. "Release the Krakken" will be heard over and over and over and over... ad nauseam.

And the Krack jokes are funny... once.

Yuck... glad I don't live in a Seattle media market.

When a Seattle player leaves the penatly box, it will be to the announcement of "Release the Kraken"!! A talented Seattle player testing the free agent market will be known as a Krak whore. Oh, baby! I could do this all day. I just might.

Just because it was used in a bad movie doesn't make it from a bad movie. Kraken is a monster from Norse mythology. You can do a lot worse with a team name.

Agreed. There are worse names out there (read: Quack) in the NHL. Admittedly, I've been on this weird nordic kick for the last month since I started watching Hannibal on Netflix. Went down a freaky Mads Mikkelsen rabbit hole where I am 49% repulsed 51% attracted to that dead-eyed nordic man. Bottom line: I want to slap him (hard) in the face and tell him I love him.

The Kraken is for the kids, let them have it. =)

Not kink shaming, but we didn't necessarily need to know that about you, mistress.

I am aware of the origin of the beast. But... I was anxiously waiting to see Harry Hamlin in a Seattle hockey uniform... or Johnny Depp as an eccentric goaltender... lots of very bad movies with a kraken to choose from. And the Krak jokes are already old. Facebook has beaten 'em to death in one day.
