Thibault's group is holding one last contest to choose the final name for the new team next season. Which one is the best?

Phoenix de Sherbrooke


QcS 10-14-2011 06:16 PM

l'Académic and les Kings are awful awful names.

Out of those names? i'll vote for Castors.

Les Castors AINEC..

BLBarmada 10-14-2011 08:20 PM

Les Kings ???? Les Academics ????? WTF ????
How are try even up there ???

Weip 10-14-2011 10:02 PM

- Kings is the most popular here... In the name of the main street crossing the entire city. I would also refer to the nickname of Sherbrooke "La reine des cantons de l'est". Since we won't call us the Queens, the Kings might be OK.

- Academics refer to all students living in the city. Sherbrooke is a student's city. About 20% of the population are students. Both University have a pretty good reputation.

- Castors... They already left 2 times under that name. It means failure. They have to change for a new name and never look back in the past.

What happens to teams named the Kings? That's right, rival team fan bases start calling you the Queens.

I would think it would have to be Les Castors. Not only is it the only good name in that poll, it's a good name for history's sake. I don't associate it with failure.

Anyway, I look forward to coming to Sherbrooke some time for an Olympiques game!

I miss seeing the navy & orange Castors at C200.

Not even a debate, what's sad though is that they talk about bringing in new colors. I really liked the dark blue + orange, and the whole old jersey. One of the nicest in the league with the Sags/Remparts.

Gotta be the Castors.

GM17* 10-31-2011 08:46 AM

Some of those are ****ing BAD. Appalachians, Kings, Royals, ACADEMICS (UGH WOW) ...I don't like Castors either, but there's some history there. I like Phenix even if it is a bit random.

L'Express de Sherbrooke.

Kings is probably one of the best options that hasn't been used by a Sherbrooke QMJHL team.

alex20wild 11-07-2011 07:48 PM

you have to go back with les castores! have too!

habsprospects 11-09-2011 03:13 PM

So the votes for the name on radio nrj website were so diversified that they couldn't take the name from that way.

Castors....go old school with it

Weip 11-17-2011 07:05 AM

My friend worked on the logo, made 5 alternates logo, already printing tshirts, jerseys, sent logos to QMJHL, etc... He couldn't tell me what is the final name nor show me the logo because it is confidential, but Thibault should unveil all this in 2 weeks!

That's why you get your friend drunk...

NewtJorden 11-19-2011 03:20 AM

It must be Castors

Weip 11-24-2011 08:30 AM

Press conference this morning at 10am about new team name, logo and jersey.

Hockey Buff 11-24-2011 09:13 AM

What was the verdict?

Weip 11-24-2011 09:15 AM

Phoenix de Sherbrooke


GM17* 11-24-2011 09:28 AM

That's what I voted for ;D

Vsevolod Bobrov 11-24-2011 10:31 AM

Faucons reborn, nice concept.

Weip 11-24-2011 11:06 AM

Sorry guys but I think my brother did an excellent job on the new logo. Phoenix isn't my favorite name, but I love all the new branding stuff.
