The Flames name did make more sense in Atlanta until Calgary hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics (Flames coming off of a torch anyone?).

To me, the worst ones are ones where they use the word "ice" or "blades" with another word.

Ice Pilots
IceGators
Ice Dogs
IceHogs
Ice Bats
IceCats
Everblades
Thoroughblades


And ones that are misspelled on purpose "to give the name an edge" are another one:

Corpus Christi Rayz
Greenville Grrrowl


But the worst name and logo has to go to the Danbury Trashers. A hockey playing garbage can? WTF?
