Why Seattle Kraken might be annoying:

    Their logo looks like a knock-off of the Suzuki one.
    They were considered a consolation prize for Seattlites, in lieu of losing the Sonics nearly two decades earlier, as there was no timeline for that franchise to return.
    Similar to the NFL's Houston Texans, their inception is largely in part to balance out the number of teams to 32.
    The broadcast of the team's expansion draft was ruined as a result of the picks being leaked to the media throughout the course of the day.
    They had some lame choices for the nickname such as Sockeyes and Emeralds.

Why Seattle Kraken might not be annoying:

    They are the first professional hockey team to be based in Seattle, since the Metropolitans over a century ago.
    They hired Hall of Famer Ron Francis as its first general manager.
    Their inception made every corner of the continental United States covered by a professional sports franchise in all four of the North American leagues.
    They gave the Vancouver Canucks a true natural rival, given the close proximities between the two cities.
    They chose an original name to honor the mythical creature that was native to the Pacific Northwest region, rather then reuse the Metropolitans moniker.
