Seattle Kraken and the Arizona Coyotes' Unsettling NHL Transition

As October approaches, the Seattle Kraken and all NHL teams prepare for a new journey. The Arizona Coyotes' physical assets—players, coaches, and front office personnel—have been permitted to relocate to Salt Lake City by the league, though not retaining their name and records.
Currently, until May 22, fans of the Kraken and the general public have the opportunity to influence the future name of the team by voting from a list of 20 candidates. These options range from the powerful "Fury" and "Blizzard" to the unconventional "Mammoth" and "Yeti."
The chosen name will shape the team's identity, including the logo, mascot, colors, and other branding elements, to be unveiled for the 2025-26 NHL season. In the interim, for the 2024-25 season, the team will don "Utah" on their jerseys.
Rob Couch, a columnist at THN, has already dismissed four of the proposed names, describing one as "bland," another as failing to reflect the location, one with negative connotations, and another simply as "weird." Personally, I find several of the options equally strange, some even reminiscent of energy drinks.
Adding intrigue to the situation, the Arizona Coyotes remain in a state of limbo within the NHL framework. THN columnist Carol Schram provides insight into the franchise's behind-the-scenes relocation saga, including speculation about what lies ahead for the team left behind in the desert.
The headline question "Will Kraken ever play again in Arizona?" is at the heart of today's ongoing Kraken Reaction, prompting continued speculation and interest among hockey fans.
