The Seattle Kraken? According to Internet sleuth Clark Rasmussen of DetroitHockey.net, it's a possible team name if the NHL expands to Seattle. Rasmussen was one of the first to discover "Golden Knights" as a potential name for the NHL's Vegas team through domain registration tracking.

Those names: The Seattle Cougars, Eagles, Emeralds, Evergreens, Firebirds, Kraken, Rainiers, Renegades, Sea Lions, Seals, Sockeyes, Totems and Whale. The bad news: No Sasquatch.
