New Seattle NHL Team - The Kraken

TheKrakenTheKraken MassachusettsPosts: 2,024 ✭✭✭✭✭

It's fitting that I just moved from here 8 months ago and they make their new team name The Kraken! Gotta say it's a cool name, but awful logo. I mean come on, you can't think of anything better than a S with a red dot! Anyways, the pillows up there will probably continue to cancel culture when they realize Greg Hardy was nicknamed The Kraken...should be fun to watch

    I don't think that's a horrible logo. It looks better the longer you look at it.

    I'm guessing that's the logo you'll see on a hat, not the one that's on the jersey. It's all right.

    Looks like the red dot is the eye of the Kraken and the body is shaped like an “S”. Kinda cool

    To each their own. Just looks like the Mariner's S redone to me

    And what else can you do with an "S"?
    Make it a Superman S?
    And if that's their colors, then yes, it will look like a Mariner's S.
    Make it pink. Then it will reflect the times of Seattle.

    Much better name than the Washington Football Team.

    Thought they could have done an angry looking kraken or octopus or something.
    Can't make it pink though, that promotes whiteness

    A lot of graphics artists tend to want to keep clean lines for print/ cut or silk screening purposes and tend to want 5 colors or less, for those reasons.
    Being a pro team, you would think costs wouldn't come into play, but when you are making 20,000 shirts, each color and the more intricate designs cost more to prep and print. So if they are saving $1 per item simplifying the logo, they save a bunch of money over time.

    I agree, it could be better.

    The S is a through back to the Seattle metropolitans.
    Who were the first North American team to win Lord Stanley's Cup in 1917. About a year before the NHL started.

    @johnnyB had no idea Seattle had an old team

  • johnnyBjohnnyB UtardedPosts: 1,553 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It was a little before my time. But Lord's Stanley's Cup has an interesting history

    Makes you wonder if the NHL is going to pull a Vegas and "install" an advantaged team from the gate.

    J/K but seriously, GO SHARKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's an affordable rum but I much prefer Sailor Jerry.

    It's also, a legendary cephalopod-like sea monster of gigantic size in Scandinavian folklore. According to the Norse sagas, the kraken dwells off the coasts of Norway and Greenland and terrorizes nearby sailors.

    It's also been known to mean "a dope party" or "a happening fucntion" by the newskewl kids or those that are spelling challanged. (ie; This party is cracking/kraken)

    Now, apparently, it's also a NHL team expansion for the west.

    Since we're talking about a Seattle team, they should just call them the Seattle Sissies.

    Can't wait until those fucktards burn down the stadium and blame a lack of diversity in the sport.
