Toronto Marlies: 2005/06

St. John's being moved to Toronto next fall. The Toronto Sun's Mike Zeisberger says the new name for the club will be the Toronto Marlies.

Awesome. I hoped from the beginning that their name would be the Marlies for historical purposes.

Good choice.

I wouldn't have minded Arenas, either.

An old major junior hockey team(OHA/OHL) that was in Toronto for ages before locating to Guelph in the late 1980s..

I wonder what they're going to do with the logo and sweaters.

MLSE COO said yesterday that they'll introduce the new look for next years team in the next week.

It may have historical significance, which is I guess cool, but I still think it sounds stupid.

I hope they stick with the same Leafs design for the sweater and keep the maple leaf and crown for the logo. Also I wish they'd get rid of that bubble letter/1998 thing that the Baby Leafs have now. Go with the same lettering as the Leafs have.

They've already gone oldschool, keep it going.

i think "maroboros" sounds quite retarded unless you are an avid smoker or something.

First of all, its Marlboros. Second of all, read up on the history as to why the name is what it is. It has nothing to do with smoking.

It may not be as cool as the Predators or Mighty Ducks but I'd take a name with some history behind it every time.

As much as I hate everything about the Leafs, this is a beauty choice for a name.



Are they gonna use the same logo as the Marlies of the GTHL?

Marlboros is better that Marlies, which I assume is a nickname much like Pens for Penguins (forgive my ignorance here, I've never heard of this name before).

Yes, the actual name is Marlboros but everyone calls them the Marlies because it's shorter.

If there is a god with a sense of humor he will make the Marlies play in an arena called the "Bob."
