I feel the Wild are the most in need of a name change. Not necessarily because it's boring but more because it's a bad name in general.

You can argue this for pretty much any team. Unless you have something like Toronto Tornadoes

Names that have any measure of history or cultural relevance behind them are not boring.

Agree here.


There really isn't any need for any team in the league to change their name.

First I heard of it is sounded like a minor league team name or something of the like. Didn't really scream "highest level of competition" to me.

You just cannot top in lameness the Ducks, as their original name "The Mighty Ducks" was due similarly named Disney Corporation kids' movie of team consisting of geeks and nerds.
No, the Mighty Ducks was an awesome name. I think "Ducks" is much lamer. They need to go back to the Mighty Ducks moniker and bring back the classic duck goalie mask logo (with the original D5 ducks logo/jersey as their third).

Amazing post... Didn't want to spam because it takes up a lot of space, but there were a lot of other good ones.

Blues team name is boring, ever since Hitchcock took over. Was a much more exciting name when Brett Hull was there.
