But just speculation on my part. They might very well have had conversations about sharing the name (NHL Thunderbirds and WHL Jr. Thunderbirds) or the WHL team reverting to its original name (Breakers) or just something entirely different altogether.

If Seattle does get a team though, I do hope they're able to use the Thunderbirds moniker. Fantastic name all around.
I doubt the thunderbirds will go.
