As soon as Rocket was a possibility, it was going to win.

I wonder if the logo will involve some Rocket Richard imagery or the #9. The Montreal Rocket did.

Obviously the best choice from the start.

One of the few words that has the same weight in english and in french as well for Habs fans.

Indeed, the lack of originality is kind of funny. I wonder if the Q still own the rights for the name?

Without context, it sounds pretty bad. Because of the Canadiens connection, it's pretty good.

Really? You're seriously asking why the Rocket won the vote?

No. Im not against the name in itself and I appreciate that Maurice is honored this way. Im not surprised it won either. I just think it wouldve been a good opportunity to have a French name. French is still the language of Lavallois people, isnt it? Les Rapides is original as it has a double meaning related to geography AND hockey. Les Patriotes is kind of lame.

Not a bad name at all and people voted for it so who am I to disagree.

Les Fusées de Laval

Makes TVASports happy, makes sense because of the Cosmodome, and the English name stays the same !

People getting worked up over an English name. Just wait until the Habs have an English Head Coach.
