They especially make sense with the Wild, Devils, and Hurricanes, as the Wild play in the capital of Minnesota, the Devils play in New Jersey's largest city, and the Hurricanes play in the capital of North Carolina.



Tampa Bay is not a city. The Tampa Bay Lightning play in Tampa, and represent the Tampa Bay region.

The Tampa Bay Rays and Tampa Bay Buccaneers both play in St. Petersburg.
No, the Bucs are in Tampa. Only the Rays are in St. Pete.

All of those teams play in the location of their name. None of them apply.

I've never understood this, maybe it's because I don't live in Ottawa but it doesn't seem that bad, people in Toronto have a tougher time getting to the ACC. It took me approx ten minutes to get from downtown Ottawa to Kanata. It's not even close to the middle of a field, it's all suburbs around it.
