Classic.
Another great line. "If I want to call the Hartford Whalers a bunch of [bleeps] in the privacy of my own home - there's nothing wrong with that!"

What Kevin Smith is it that you're referring to? I've seen about half of his movies but don't think I've seen this one

Chasing Amy? It's been a while since I've seen it.

And my answer is of course, The Whale. Still wear my green jersey every once in a while.

I would love to see the Nordiques again. SImply because, as a Habs fan, i never learned to hate them. I'm only 17.

Honorable mentions goes to the Whalers.

Ideally you should be hunting for Sakic's Nordiques jersey; Broten's North Stars Jersey, Hawerchuk's Jets jersey and Ron Francis' Whalers jersey. Just imagine the respect you would get from hockey nerds like ourselves....

Or if you're a goalie, Liut's Whalers, Essensa's Jets, Casey's North Stars and Bouchard's Nordiques.

the whale. i guess my avatar gives that away. i grew up with a record of "Brass Bonanza", it had a radio call of a fight on the b-side. hockey video games were still using brass bonanza up to couple of years ago. ron francis (#4) or geoff sandersons (#13) rookie jerseys were the ones i always wanted. sakics nord jersey (away) is a classic too, though i wanted sundin's when i was a teenager.

Winnipeg Jets... I loved watching the Canucks and Jets battle. I remember the year I started watching hockey... first round of the playoffs that year the Canucks and Jets played. The Canucks were down 3 games to 1 Never forget that series.

Oh and I want a Khabibulin Jets jersey!

The Jets defined the word 'cool'.

If the mid 90's Jet core would have stayed together and been modernized they would have been something special. Selanne, Zhamnov, Tkachuk, Doan, Khabibulin, Briere etc. Aside from Tkachuk being an ignorant jackass around town and holding out during every training camp, it was such a cool team.

The Nordiques, as a Habs fan I missed out on most of the Battle of Quebec games.

Easily the Nordiques. Foppa, Foote and Sakic wearing their old Nordiques sweaters two years ago for a game back in Quebec was my favorite moment of the season.

Well, since the question is about which DEFUNCT NHL team, not one that moved, my answer would be:

The Montreal Maroons.

What a great name! And only English players on it, to compete with the Canadiens' French-speaking players.

Of the teams who have only MOVED, of course the North Stars (still have my 1985 jersey) and the Jets (have a Bobby Hull jersey from the WHA days...only I cut the sleeves off a bit later to make it fit longer!).

Never could stand the Whalers, I don't know why. Maybe it was the Coopperalls...

Nordiques. Love those jerseys, loved those provincial battles with the Habs. Separatists vs. Anglophones. Quebec would essentially turn upside down. The Stastnys, Michel Goulet, Dale Hunter, Wilf Paiement, Dan Bouchard, Mario Marois, etc. Now THAT was hockey. They actually scored goals back then.

i love the california golden seals...they were terrible...wore white(girls) skates...not that far off the mark considering they were from oakland...

seals never once made the playoffs...traded away the rights to draft guy lafleur for some older retread players...

when they played the canadiens...the score would either be 10-0...or else the seals would play so badly the habs would go into a funk and the game would be tied...

they should move the calgary flames to oakland...and rename them THE FLAMING RODEO QUEENS
