The NHL seems to be a bit of an anomaly in that relocated teams go for an identity change when they relocate with the only exceptions being the Atlanta to Calgary Flames and the North Stars to Stars when they moved to Dallas. The other three professional leagues have chosen to keep their names, however recent relocations have had name changes (Montreal Expos -> Washington Nationals, Houston Oilers -> Tennessee Titans, and Seattle Super Sonics -> OKC Thunder).
