I can't recall how everyone feels about the Kraken name but I like it. The Musers on the Ticket talked about it the other day and they our course hated it. I like the logo too but not a fan of how the sleeves look.

I like it I guess but I feel like most team names have something to do with the area and that one is just random af.

But Minnesota wild is the worst name in the history of sports.

i thought miro was in no man's land for too long also if i'm honest
I think he played correctly. He made sure to dismiss the pass option on the 2-on-1 while allowing Öttinger to face the shot because he's trusted. Unfortunately, the shot was perfect and Öttinger seemed to be slightly off position too.
I didnt think he really had the pass but you could be right.
On the replay it was close, Suter was atomizing his peak speed personal record to catch the other Kraken player. But another interesting analysis coming from Fichaud and Lalime was that Öttinger was more guessing what was gonna happen instead of clearly identifying that the puck holder would likely shoot, which means Öttinger has his part of responsability.

I was hoping they'd go with the Metropolitans. The Mets is more a pro name to me but Kraken isn't terrible either.

I personally love the Kraken’s branding, it’s just unfortunate that Seattle as a city is such a beating LOL.

Maybe he should sit. He’s wasting space out there.

I was first "meh" about the name but it is aging well. The logo is *fargin'* sharp IMO but I don't like the number font. They look like the shitty Predators ones.

I noticed other teams are now pouncing on him when he winds up high too. He has to be quicker.

I love their branding. Has just as much personality if not more than Stars. One is a feared mythical creature, the other is distant balls of light.

The star has something to do with Texas though so they kept it. I wouldn’t mind a cool mythological creature though. Maybe the Harpies. Jk.

If you’re not wavering between orgasmic joy and shitting your pants in terror, you’re not invested enough.

I save the bland indifference for the regular season.

Centaurs are the most Texan of mythical creatures.
