Please to god don't name the new team the Metropolitans. We don't need to keep on re-treading history.

I, for one, am all for the Seattle Kraken.

Bettman strongly hinted they won't be the Metropolitains

I think it's gonna be the Seattle Sockeyes

The biggest employer downtown Seattle is Amazon. So I like the Seattle Amazons. The sweater will have beautiful blonde woman front and back. Most distracting to opposing players and a real fan favourite, well at the least the male fans.

I'm sure Jeff Bezos will appreciate all the free advertising. Red Bull will probably have a conniption.
But seriously, this is a terrible idea.

Realignment was approved for Arizona to shift to the Central division. I wonder if it would make more sense to move Colorado to the Pacific and Edmonton/Calgary to Central.

that idea seems good. I've also seen proposals for an 8-division league of 4 teams each, which I'm all down for. The only thing that gets complained about with re-alignment is "but muh rivalries," which... I'm generally more about maintaining geographic rivalries (e.g. Penguins-Flyers); my goal behind re-alignment would be to cut down on travel times and also minimize time zone cross-over. Any history-based rivalries, I don't especially care much about; I don't personally give a whit about hockey history.
