SEATTLE! If you name your new @NHL team the KRAKEN, so help me Zeus, I will become a big, fat Krak-Head! Release the Kraken - the most absolutely metal name for hockey team since the @NJDevils!

If Seattle Kraken fans aren't called Krakheads I'm done with humanity— Pirate Jordan (@Reagan_Jordan1) January 29, 2020
If not the Kraken, Rain City Bitch Pigeons better be the team name. https://t.co/p7F3FZCrDW— Dans Wife (@BathBombMom) January 29, 2020
This is the coolest thing to ever happen in the NHL and I'm being 100% serious.— Ryan Hana (@RyanHanaWWP) January 29, 2020
I'm buying the hell out of a Seattle Kraken jersey. https://t.co/Qi2Q6qKCPj
Other people are calling for the Seattle Freeze to be the new name, which nothing to do with weather, and everything to do with the passive/cold nature of Seattle residents.
Oh man, the more I think about it the more I love it. @NHLSeattle_ Should lean in heavy to that stereotype and own it.— Shoeless Joe (@JoeJackson206) January 30, 2020
We're not going to throw fish for you. We're not going to play grunge for you. We're going to give you the Seattle Freeze and remind you nobody likes you here. pic.twitter.com/TqBj7B0RNr
There are no SEATTLE FREEZE puns here, thus, I am lead to believe this is a diversion, and they have chosen my preferred name.— [kimerrikin] (@kimerrikin) January 29, 2020
The mascot will be a skinny white dude with an REI rain shell, AirPods in, a Patagonia backpack, and a travel mug. He speaks to no one. Signs nothing. https://t.co/jzXxevqn7j
Seattle Freeze?! Seattle Mr. Freeze, maybe pic.twitter.com/juOKi2QoP1— Superman's Brother (@TheNickSeaver) January 30, 2020
As a guy from NY I can absolutely confirm that Washington State is home of the Seattle Freeze. People from here are extremely passive-aggressive, generally unfriendly, and offended about everything,.— Todd (@addictionguy) January 30, 2020
