If you could name/rename your NHL team

So I'm wondering if you had the chance - those of you ONLY who dislike your club's team or who would tweak the current name - what would you name your club?


I personally think the North Stars were one of the legendary names in pro sports, and while I personally think Fighting Saints or Moose were damn near flawless, I think Minnesota Northerners (not the MN "Wild") would have been the baddest name ever.


What would name your local NHL franchise or change the name to?

I'm fine with the current name but using the old AHL team name the Buffalo Bisons would have been an equal or better name.

That illustrates the "sports" (Blackhawks) line as peaking early, and then reving it up again towards the end. I like that.

I like it. I also wouldn't mind something to do with the ocean, like "Tsunami" or something. Can't think of a really good one, though.

Vancouver Krakens would probably be my top choice.

EDIT: Just thought of another one, Vancouver Valkyries? Sounds awesome.

The Blue Ducks of Anaheim.

I made the Ducks blue because I've never seen a blue duck before. And to be honest with you, I wanted to see a blue duck.
