Voyageurs wouldn't have been too French for my tastes; it's just MN history... I mean, North Stars was a reference to "L'etoile du Nord," after all.
L'etoile du Nord was also called "the North Star" in English looooong before any Euros set foot on the continent. Unless there's a specific link to the french name for Polaris and the hockey team? Why didn't they call us Les Etoiles du Nord then or Etoiles polaire. (polare?)
I haven't read any of the North Stars history-of books so i could be wrong.
