This time at least the team is far enough along to not protect clowns like Sutter, Granlund and Gudbranson

Depth is a good thing.

Doylie likes them fresh faced and regularly falling on their knees?

He likes the kids most certainly, it’s why he gets pissed off at Benning for trading picks and prospects

Can't say I'm a fan of the name but it's nowhere near as bad as when Anaheim were named the "Mighty Ducks". That was terrible.

Wonder how many Canucks fans in Washington state will remain loyal?

It’s not horrible. I like the jerseys.
Orca vs Kraken works.
Canucklehead vs Krakhead works.
Short road trips work.
No complaints.

For some reason I feel like the Kraken will suck forever... unlike the Knights.

Just a hunch.

It’s kind of like the Raptors to me or Mighty Ducks. Kind of cartoony, but okay for the kids.
I don’t have a problem with it. Better for kids than Sockeyes or Sealions, which is the one I liked best.

Like the colour scheme, kind of gimmicky but names like RedSox, WhiteSox, Golden Knights, RedBlacks lol Kraken is aiight.

The S goes along with the mariners S I suppose.

Lol two of those things aren’t liked the others. The Red Sox and Chi Sox are iconic in brand, uniform and name. Not to mention they both actually won the big prize a few times
