As long as access in and out of the Eastside remains a disaster, putting an NHL team there clearly would not be wise. Tuckwilla might be good.
I don’t know where to throw my hat into the ring for a possible team name (providing it’s not a relocation deal) but has the name ‘Seattle Pioneers’ been suggested?
I like Pioneers, also like Seattle Grunge,(St Louis Blues)
Seattle Pioneers is so last century. This is the Puget Sound region – The Seattle Norwhals is far better. It’s a fish with a mouth as big as a goalie’s mit and has its own built in hockey stick! Look up the Norwhal on-line and you’ll agree. And the marketing would be endless. We have a flannel shirts here.
Why can’t there be a Seahawks Hockey team? There would be precedent
The Seattle Kraken. Release the Kraken! Imagine that being announced during a power play… All I know is I’m excited. NHL in the PNW!!
I still like the Seahawks. However what about the Seattle Geoducks?
