Tout Québécois, toute Québécoise aimant le hockey doit souhaiter le retour des Nordiques et de la rivalité avec le Canadien. Or, on apprend qu'une entité nommée le Oak View Group a postulé officiellement pour une équipe d'expansion à Seattle.  En parallèle, le registre des marques du USPTO nous apprend que le Oak View Group s'est activé avec le dépôt de plusieurs marques.  Il faut croire que les déboires des Golden Knights de Vegas au USPTO leur a servi d'inspiration pour prendre les devants sur l'enregistrement de la marque.

Les marques déposées:

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
