Think Seattle wants hockey? They've sold 25k season ticket deposits and reached 10k in 12 minutes.

This will fuel other franchises in other sports to be granted. NHL is smart here.

Of those, I like Eagles, Emeralds, Evergreens, Kraken (hell yea), and Sockeyes.

Definitely wouldn't want Totems because you just know some PNW SJW activist types are gonna cripple you at the knees if you try that.

It's actually been amazing a huge city like Seattle hasn't had an NHL team for all this time.

Except for the fact that Vancouver is like 2 hours away.

What a rivalry this will be.
