Because of the name and the actual word itself, I think it's OK.  The Minnesota "Wilds" probably wouldn't sound right. 

I wasn’t suggesting they should pluralize their sh!tty name lol.

While I think the Vegas logo coulda been better and incorporated hidden hockey sticks, it ain't bad.

And I think the Kraken sounds badass and that's a great start!  The S is clever the way it is a tentacle splitting the S, and the space needle on the anchors captures their big draw... Besides rain and Starbucks and hippies.

I see a second logo with a mean sea beast in their future.

Better then the salmons! Or the sockeyes! You think that wouldn't have become the Load Socks!?!?

..., but like MD said, they were worried about gambling....

I think the WNBA team took Aces

To be fair, I don't think the WNBA has too much to worry about when it comes to gambling habits of their enormous fanbase.

AND they won a Stanley coupe

🤔 I gotta say, I wouldn't mind winning one of these!

I make puns as my main hobby and I never would have made that connection.

Ah, true.  Jazz is kinda weird, but Magic/Heat/Thunder kinda go back to my Lightning example.  Are they really singular?  

Jazz is even weirder because the franchise kept that name even when they moved from New Orleans to Salt Lake City.  That would be like the Devils being called the New Jersey Rockies.  I have no idea why the Jazz kept that name (though not like they’re the only ones...teams have kept nicknames that no longer applies to their new city (Dodgers, Flames, Lakers, etc).

Off topic but it annoys me that MSG only airs Best of games for the Rags and Isles these days. Haven’t seen one for the Devils in quite a while 

Yeah, like not since like 2012...

Unfortunately that's because they made the playoffs and we didn't 

Yeah sadly the ratings for Best of Devils games would probably be less than nothing right now...I don't really think they have much of a wide appeal.  I readily admit that I might watch a full Best Of game here and there, or check out a period or two if I know that a certain game's on (80s games are kind of a hoot), but in general I can't honestly say that I'm starving for replays of old Devils games (many of which I've likely already seen)...especially since there's tons of videos on YouTube of signature Devils moments, and in some cases, even some full games.  

At this point, I'm just looking forward to eventually getting back to some semblance of Old Normal, and watching new games then.

Not sure where to put this, but it's good to hear. I was sure he was walking. 

Yeah that is a bit surprising, but encouraging.

Some good news, hopefully softens the blow when Pitt gets the pick this evening. (or the other team)

We should definitely be placing bets on who throws the first sh!t fit when it gets selected...

sh!t, should've checked here before creating a thread.

This is awesome news though, I was certain he was going to go the free agency route.

Nah, it’s definitely worth its own thread.

How does tonight work?  They start at pick 16, and after they pick number 10 they put cards 1 & 9 next to each other and announce which fvcking undeservable team gets the first pick?  Or do they just not announce the team who gets the first pick?

I’m hoping just cut the sh!t and announce the pick. But because it’s televised, it will he reverse order.

They are going to cut a cake and see whose logo is inside, like a gender reveal party.

As long as it’s not the fvckers I don’t care who gets it.  I think I’d actually pull for Edmonton to get it, would like to see him and McDavid on the same team, but who knows if they’d still win because McDavid and Draisaitl were the best tandem in hockey but it just goes to show one line doesn’t win it for you.
