Seattle is another step closer to getting an NHL expansion team. Fans have thrown their support behind the idea by putting down thousands of dollars in deposits on seasons tickets. As the process moves forward the talk inevitably turns to what the team name should be. Some of the monikers the would-be owners are reportedly tossing around include the ‘Seattle Sea Lions’ and the ‘Seattle Whales’. (What?) We figure they could use a little help and our listeners are chiming in. May we suggest ‘Seattle Salt’, ‘Seattle Squid’, ‘Seattle Emeralds’ or ‘Seattle Softies’?? (Ara’s homage to Microsoft) What do you think? What should Seattle call it’s potential NHL team?
