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




LOL, you got it.





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.



Haha, fair enough, but the subtle little bee there after the nameplate? The birds and the bees?

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

I just remember my friend telling me about it, so I have no idea where it was, but there was a team called the Nads. Supporters would yell "Go Nads!"

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.


Pigs, and more especially wild pigs, and wild hogs as well, are dangerous motherf***ers. I'd be more afraid of them than many primarily predatory animals.
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.

Oh, no doubt about it....that's the way it was designed on purpose...the stork-looking bird and the bee for the aforementioned 'birds and bees' reference. They just said it was a whooping crane so they could say that the whole jersey wasn't one huge sexual innuendo ;)

There was an old timers tourney in the rink where I play this last winter and there was a team made up of ex Canadian Navy guys and they were called the CRUSTY OLD SEAMEN !

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Yeah, this is what I was talking about earlier. The mascot's name is Scrotie.

Oh, and the motto of the team is, "When the heat is on the balls stick together."

No hockey team there, but there's a town nearby whose mascot is the Flicker, which is fine until they put up the big handmade signs in all-caps. The L and I tend to squeeze together and look like a U, so the sings read "GO f***ERS!"

No joke that's actually the name of my beer league, but I don't know how we got the name. I joined halfway through the season. I do hear "Go Nads" all the time though.

Back when I was in bantam hockey, our team was deciding on a name that would fit well with the ol' powder blue jerseys and some kid suggested that it would be hilarious to be something that has absolutely nothing to do with blue. The first thing that came up was "Camels" and it was instantly a unanimous vote in support of. Now, apparently this is a derogatory term for Middle-Eastern folk and this was right after 9-11. Despite our Coach's best efforts to try to convince us to change it without corrupting our minds with more derogatory terms in a sensitive time period, he was eventually left with the responsibility of explaining to all the parents why we were the Camels.

No one will say it because they're an original six team, but the "Canadiens" is a really dumb name. Whenever I talk about playing or watching the "Montreal Canadiens" to my non-hockey fan friends, they are sure to emphasize how terrible of a name it is. From tradition it's grown on people I guess.

I like Canadiens. It is very classy, in my opinion. It is far better than Ducks, Avalanche, Penguins, or Wild. Those have to be some of the worst names in all of North American pro sports.

As a kid, I used to think the same and wonder why they ever changed their name from the Detroit Cougars.

Now, I love it as it sounds classy, yet not wimpy, or like it is trying to be "tough", like XFL team.

What a Redwing is is anyone's guess, so fans can use their imaginations and develop their own image of the name.
