Its a clever play on words...i guess? But seriously, how strange would it be to play for a team whose name and jersey is based on sexual slang?

I can't believe I had never heard of them before today.

Haha, and the logo? The stork is a nice touch...

When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Can't believe you've never heard of the Macon Whoopee. They've been around for a while now.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It's still better than the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. At least now they aren't named after a Disney movie.

Imagine if the Angels owner went after the ducks. They would have been called the Los Angeles Mighty Ducks of Anaheim now. ;)

Disagree, especially on the Lightning. The modern plural for Lightning is Lightning. 'Lightnings' is an archaic plural that only shows up in old poetry.

Avalanche is a good name, and 'Avalanches' would just sound terrible. The Wild, on the other hand, I agree with. Wtf is a Wild? Some sort of Bear-Tiger-Weasel-Cat-Wolf-Thing, apparently.

For me, personally, it's the Ducks. The Mighty Ducks was horrible, but hey, it was a Disney franchise. On the other hand, the Ducks? Why the hell did they keep the name Ducks? WTF kind of team name is Ducks? That's even less terrifying than Penguins. At least Penguins have an association with ice. Ducks migrate away from ice in Winter (hey, maybe they should be in Phoenix).
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Our local team here is call the Mallards, pretty much the same thing. But the reason they're called the Mallards is because we are on the Mississippi River and there are TONS of ducks here, but why Anaheim is still the Ducks I don't know, at least we have a reason. For the 2 years we had Calgary's AHL team they changed the name to the Flames, that was the worst, we actually lost ticket sales because of the loyals that hated the name change. But what about Rockford Ice Hogs? Or even the Iowa Chops, with a big pig head as the logo, lol.

It's supposed to be a whooping crane. Unfortunately the team has been defunct for almost a decade.

The swastika was in use LONG (~500 B.C.)before the Nazis f***edmessed it up. In 1916 the Swastika was mainly a religious symbol, not being adopted by the Nazi party until 1920.

The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Pavel Datsyuk > x (where x is the name of any active hockey player)

I gotta vote for the Mighty Ducks. That name is embarassing, to say the least.
