NHL Expansion Team: Seattle Kraken
This is my favorite time of the year, when a new professional sports team claims their logo and official team name. For the NHL's new Seattle expansion team, say hello to the Seattle Kraken. My initial reaction was "woah, that is sick." The Kraken is a team name that is not already used much in sports and is only a water monster myth (I think). But then we get into the new logo which is an S in a turquoise/icey blue, navy blue, and a red eye of the beast colors along with the tentacle which honestly looks much better than half of the current NHL team logos and the new name of the Washington Redskins (who are temporarily "Washington Football Club." Anyway, their secondary logo might be even cooler than the primary which is the space needle making an anchor. Overall, Seattle Kraken nailed the jerseys and colors and everything about it I love. Now I guess the only thing left is to buy knockoff Kraken jersey from china... hit me up with any links I can find one.
Rating: 7.7/10: while it is very good, there are still a few things color wise I wish they would have used. Theres also a petition to change the name of the "Climate Pledge Arena" in Seattle to "The Krakhouse" which is hysterical to me.
