I'm still not getting the Mockingbirds reference, unless you're referring to CDK's original comment.

That happened when the remaining IHL teams merged into the AHL. Milwaukee had the older team, and so they were allowed to keep the name.

The Norfolk Ads actually got their start in the ECHL as the Hampton Roads Admirals. Same arena and everything.

The name I've had in my head the longest is 'Orlando Pelicans', but is that too beachy for inland Orlando?

It sucks, our main industry is tourism, with our second being aeronautics/aerospace (which is where I got the name 'Jets' from) but that won't do with Winnipeg back.

What's our third largest industry? Probably outlet malls.

There used to be an indoor soccer team called the 'Orlando Sharks', but they've been gone for a few years now. However, it is the name of the San Jose franchise, as well as their AHL affiliate in Worchester, MA.
