Seattle releases possible names for NHL franchise…

Just a month ago(or more), the city of Seattle approved renovations to the Key Arena, once an arena that hosted an NBA franchise. Now, with the renovations in place and being done, the NHL placed a bid that was eventually approved and since then there has been very little talk of it.

Until, recently when some possible names came out of Seattle for an NHL franchise, 38 to be correct. Now, that may seem odd, 38 names is a ton, and probably too many. The reason that there are 38 possible names is that one of’s finest Clark Rasmussen said there were 38 domains registered within the last two weeks. Now the way things go with registering a domain is you basically can buy any domain if it’s gets to the point where one’s domain expires. Some domain hunters make a decent buck off this, waiting for people’s domain to expire and then they buy it and force the original owner to pay double or triple that amount.

The exciting news though is Clark found a trend in a couple of the domain buyers and it seems that one person was registering multiple domains. As reported by NBCSports

“By my count, 38 domains representing 13 different possible names were registered under the name of Christina Song,” Rasmussen wrote on his blog. “Ms. Song, according to her LinkedIn profile, is General Counsel at Oak View Group, who won the bid to redevelop Seattle’s Key Arena on December 4. The domains were registered via an email address for a lawyer at Gibson Dunn. That firm assisted Oak View Group in the Key Arena bid process.”

Some interesting news, the person who won the bid to redevelop Seattle’s Key arena just so happened to be buying Seattle domain names. Anyways here is the extensive list of the POSSIBLE(not likely) names that the NHL could see come out of Seattle.

Seattle Cougars
Seattle Eagles
Seattle Emeralds
Seattle Evergreens
Seattle Firebirds
Seattle Kraken
Seattle Rainiers
Seattle Renegades
Seattle Sea Lions
Seattle Seals
Seattle Sockeyes
Seattle Totems
Seattle Whales

Top three?

Seattle Evergreens, Seattle Whales(old Whalers would be cool), Seattle Kraken.

I don’t know something about these name sounds interesting and different. The Evergreens, Whalers, Kraken come into play the Lightning, it just flows well. Whatever name would be interesting honestly, another NHL team would be awesome. The sport is growing. Go Hockey!
