Count me in the name sucks / logo rocks contingent.

I actually remember submitting recommendations for the contest when I was a youngster. I drew up my own logos and everything I think my five were the Northern Lights, Polar Bears, Pathfinders, Lake Demons, and Blue Ox.

In retrospect, I'm glad we didn't do the N'Lights. If we couldn't be the North Stars, best to find something new. White Bears isn't a bad name but who are we kidding it's not THAT bad here. What about the Minnesota Albino Black Bears Freeze is awful. I think I like Blue Ox more than most, but that would have been a lot of Blue in the Western Conference. Of the six, I think the Voyageurs was the rightful winner. I was pretty miffed with the Wild. Honestly, I would have much preferred the Swarm. They won me back with the primary logo.

Minnesota Fighting Saints. Great name and a classic logo. This would have been an excellent choice (and a nice nod to St. Paul).

I know it wouldn't work for hockey, but I always thought the Gray Ducks would be a fitting name for a MN team.
