The Toronto Turds

To keep the alliteration only, no reference to the teams performance

The Toronto Perpetual Losers, of any league in any sport (except the CFL, i guess).

Toronto Toros

A bull is a bad ass mascot, that has absolutely nothing to do with Toronto.

Funny my buddy and I were actually discussing this the other day. Have the league disband and start over from scratch, and have four separate leagues under one umbrella. A northeast league, southeast league, pacific league and central league. Buy the WHA name and use that or just add an S to become the National Hockey LeagueS. Give em each a 30m cap per team and have at it. As for the names, the teams own them, not the NHL correct? If we had to though? The Arenas. Keep our. colours and already have a classic logo.

Yup. That would be my preference if this unlikely scenario ever came to pass.

Name the team the Toronto Hockey Club, wear the 'Arenas' sweaters (which itself was just a nickname spawned because the team was owned by the Toronto Arena Company), and like any European or South American football club, let the fans give the team a nickname: the Maple Leafs.

A bull is a traditional symbol of finance, one of Toronto's primary industries; a 'bull market' is marked by increasing investor confidence and investment. Doubt that is where the Toros name came from though... at least their sweaters were pretty nice:

And speaking of Rush, I'd dig the Toronto Snow Dogs. CuJo's mask would be so fitting.

Toros was the name for some possible league that was hatched up a few years ago, I believe? I like the name.

Toronto Ice Cubs

Its a play on words...(ice cubes) cause we are in Canada and its so freaking cold....and it has an association with an equally inept organization, which gives it a whole new meaning...as in we are the Cubs on Ice.....LOL.

Bring back the WHA and give the NHL a run for it's money. It was somewhat successful last time.

It was John Bassett's team in the WHA.

We could call ourselves the Bay Street "Bullies"

They would simply revert to the Toronto St. Patrick's.
